Billed as the biggest act to visit here by some local pundits, Elton John’s performance on May 1, 2010 at the Covelli Centre had a lot of rock fans drooling over the potential of the 5-year-old arena to draw big name talent. While he’s clearly a huge name associated with rock, you can look over the list of shows on this site and see that Sir Elton fits comfortably among the many stars who have performed here over the years.
The demand for this show was clearly there as the concert sold out in less than five minutes in March. John, the old pro, fillled the setlist with plenty of hits and gave the people a show worthy of the high ticket prices paid.
WHAT THE SHOW SOUNDED LIKE: It was professionally recorded and made commercially available for sale after the show (mp3s, CDs). I don’t believe the option to purchase the show still exists, but someone has put the tracks on YouTube (one of the songs is posted above).
