Elton John will appear in concert at the Wells Fargo Theatre on Tuesday, April 12th at 8pm, benefitting the Matthew Shepard Foundation and performing his “Greatest Hits Live”, featuring number one chart hits and classic album tracks from throughout Elton’s incredible five-decade career.
“Sir Elton has stood up for equality and dignity for all people, for more than a decade, through his tremendous generosity to the Foundation. His benefit concerts in Laramie in 1999 and 2009 sustained our educational work, bringing hope and inspiration to the community. We are deeply grateful for his continuing support and for the example he sets for all of us.” Judy Shepard, President of the Board of Directors of the Matthew Shepard Foundation.
One of the most successful live acts on the road today, Elton put on the kind of concert you will never forget: the entire audience standing, dancing and singing along with much-loved classic songs such as “Your Song”, “Daniel”, “Rocket Man”, “Bennie and the Jets” and many more including selections from The UNION, Elton and Leon Russell’s critically acclaimed album on Decca Records available now. The album features a variety of musical genres from R&B, Soul, Gospel, Pop and Rock. Rolling Stone Magazine gave The UNION 5 stars. In addition Elton and Leon are nominated for a 2011 Grammy Award for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals for “If It Wasn’t for Bad”.
