Elton John

Ralph Engelstad Arena announced today that singer Elton John will make his first appearance in Grand Forks on March 24th.  If memory serves me correct, he’s played the Fargodome twice, and I was at each of  those concerts.  The second of which was his huge tour with fellow piano man Billy Joel.  Both shows were incredible.

My affinity for Elton John is due in large part to growing up in a household where his records were played non-stop by Bro#3.  Additionally, quizzes were given concerning album titles, song titles, lyrics, Bernie Taupin and anything else relating to John.  The result of which is I know more about Reginald Kenneth Dwight than the average person.

And that’s a good thing in my book.  Thanks Bro#3.

My favorite Elton John song is “Someone Saved My Life Tonight.”  Here he is singing it at Madison Square Garden in 2000:

  3. Fun fact – E. John’s bday is 3/25 – does that mean the audience gets to sing Happy Birthday to him?!

  4. Saw him at the Target Center a couple of times and at the Fargo Dome. His earlier shows at the Target Center were a little better but he was, dare I say younger and had more range, but nevertheless it would be hard to pass on seeing him again.
