Elton Coming to La Crosse, Wisconsin
Elton John is coming to the La Crosse Center at 8 p.m. April 19.
John will appear with his band - Davey Johnstone on guitar, Bob Birch on bass, John Mahon on percussion, Nigel Olsson on drums and Kim Bullard on keyboards - in a "Greatest Hits Live" concert, featuring No. 1 chart hits and classic album tracks from throughout John's five-decade career.
Before you rush to the La Crosse Center and start camping out, tickets don't go on sale until 11 a.m. March 14. And most tickets likely will be sold over the Internet.
La Crosse Center Director Art Fahey said he's been working with Fred Frank of Frank Productions for more than a year to make the show happen, but was never sure it would.
"There's probably no bigger touring act in the world who sells out wherever he goes," Frank said. Tickets were gone in an hour for shows Frank promoted last year in Duluth and Mankato, Minn.
"In Mankato, we had over 300 people in line and not all of them got a ticket," Frank said. He recommends ordering tickets online.
The La Crosse Center will release more details about tickets later this week.
