Now I’ll be honest, I’m not sure if I would have gone to Elton John if a friend hadn’t asked about going first. But that did get me thinking about just how many hits the legendary piano man has. I think I forgot just how many. As it turned out, we ended up with a great group of friends going, and we saw even more at the show. Sir Elton John packed the house at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin on Saturday night, and I was reminded just how many generations he has reached by the broad age range of fans in attendance.
The show started out solid, yet a tad subdued prior to the show really ramping up. The legend played for a solid three hours and got up from his piano bench to have some fun with the crowd between songs. Unlike many artists these days, Elton also signed autographs near the end of the concert for many fans. So it wasn’t long before everyone was on their feet. We were also introduced to Rich, a fan who EJ recognized seeing at a lot of his shows. Rick told him he had been to more than 100-or-some-odd shows. Now that is what I call a fan, and that made me think, exactly how old is Elton John these days? The answer is the ripe ol age of 63 and he’s still putting on a damn good show.
Here are just a few songs from the set list in the event that, like me, you forgot just how many great hits Elton John has. Looking for tickets to an upcoming Elton John concert?
