Elton John

When: Fri., Sept. 19, 8 p.m. 2014

Guitarists might get a bit more glory, but legendary piano players like Elton John get the benefit of being able to sit down while banging on the keys and belting into the mic for a high-energy show, with no shortage of spangly jackets and unusual eyewear. The British knight/rock star’s current tour is a trip through many of his greatest hits, particularly those from 1973’s Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, which was re-released this year in a super-mega deluxe edition. If you can’t believe that it’s been 40 years since “Bennie and the Jets” hit airwaves, just wait—The Lion King and John’s sublime soundtrack for the film turned 20 this year; it’d be fitting if he closed out his set with “Circle of Life,” wouldn’t it?
