Elton John coming to Orlando's Amway Center
Elton John just keeps drifting farther and farther east.
In 2009, he played a sold-out gig with Billy Joel at the St. Pete Times Forum. In 2010, he and Leon Russell ventured into Polk County for a show at the Lakeland Center.
In 2012, he'll be all the way over in Orlando. Sir Elton will perform at the Amway Center on March 10 in what's being billed as a "greatest hits" set. No new material! (Although to be honest, we wouldn't mind a couple of songs from John and Russell's The Union.) He does have a few open dates around then, though, so we'll hold out hope that a Tampa show might still be in the works.
Tickets to the March 10 show will go onsale Jan. 21, and will cost $32, $82 and $137. Click here for the details.
