dR Daily 11/4/19: Elton John Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour
Yes, it’s nominally “Sold Out,” and has been at least since Nov. 28, 2018, the original date for this rescheduled concert. But “Sold Out” is a relative term these days, just like “Farewell Tour” (cough Cher cough), and there are seats to be had on the ticket resellers SeatGeek and StubHub as of this morning. All right, they range in price from $222 to $4,000, but hey it’s ELTON JOHN, people. Who’s really having a moment of late, what with the Rocketman movie, his notoriously candid new autobiography Me, and the equally candid interviews he’s been doing (as on the recent Fresh Air with Terry Gross interview on NPR). And it’s ELTON JOHN, after all, whose music with Bernie Taupin has been the soundtrack of our lives for lo these many years, and whose live shows are legendary. If it really is a farewell tour, or if he and the audience levitate like in the movie, think of the stories you’ll be able to tell in your autobiography — or at least to your grandkids. Mon. 11/4, 8 p.m., Amalie Arena, Tampa, amaliearena.com.
