“The simple truth is I want to spend more time with my family and less time touring,” said Elton. “I am all too aware of how precious the time ahead is. My sons are growing up so quickly. Their early years are just flying by and I want to be there with them”.
Elton John’s band features Nigel Olsson (part of Elton’s original three-piece band) on drums, Davey Johnstone (who first recorded with Elton in 1971 and joined the band a year later) on guitar, John Mahon on percussion, Kim Bullard on keyboards and Matt Bissonette on bass.
One of the most successful artists on the road today, Elton and his band perform a concert you will never forget: the entire audience singing along to much-loved classic songs such as “Your Song”, “Rocket Man”, “Bennie and the Jets”, “Philadelphia Freedom”, “Crocodile Rock”, “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me”, and many more.
“Almost 10 years have passed since Elton John last played the Don Haskins Center. It is fitting that Don Haskins Center will host Sir Elton John in 2017, during our venue’s 40th anniversary,” said Jorge Vasquez, general manager for the venue. “His music transcends generations of El Paso fans, both old and new. Music fans will be counting down the days to March 23, when the Rocket Man himself takes the stage in El Paso on what will be a night to remember in Don Haskins Center history.”
The monumental career of international singer/songwriter and performer Elton John spans five decades. He is one of the top-selling solo artists of all time with 38 gold records and 31 platinum albums, 29 consecutive Top 40 hits, and he has sold more than 250 million records worldwide. John holds the record for the biggest selling single of all time, “Candle in the Wind ’97,” which sold over 37 million copies. Since his career began in 1970 he has played over 4,000 concerts worldwide and in more than 80 countries.
