Sir Elton John, with 37 gold and 27 multi-platinum albums and 250 million records sold worldwide, the third-most successful artist in the history of the American charts (behind only Elvis and The Beatles), is a force of musical nature. It’s reasonable to say no one can hold a Candle in the Wind to the astronomic Rocket Man, who has been honored time and again for his poignant and transcendent rock ballads that still hum in the hearts of listeners worldwide. This year, we honor one of modern culture’s most enduring performers as Sir Elton John embarks upon his final tour. Join us as we celebrate this larger-than-life Pop Rock icon with The Music of Elton John, with our special guests, world-class touring act Jeans ‘n Classics.
Now celebrating their 21st anniversary, Jeans ‘n Classics is a star performer in the arts and entertainment scene right across North America. While most definitely not a tribute act, Jeans ‘n Classics faithfully interprets the music of legendary rock and pop albums and artists, with their own special and signature flair.
