On your radar: The Rocket Man and his band at the new USF Sun Dome, and Arrested Development's 20th anniversary in downtown St. Petersburg

Elton John: The Rocket Man and his band reopen the newly revamped USF Sun Dome tonight in grand fashion. The 65-year-old icon will unload the hits — Your Song, Bennie and the Jets, Philadelphia Freedom, Crocodile Rock — starting at 8 p.m. at University of South Florida Sun Dome, 4202 E Fowler Ave., Tampa. $39.50–$139.50. (813) 974-3002.

Arj Barker: The comic has become something of an international comedy star by portraying eccentric pawn shop owner Dave on New Zealand show Flight of the Conchords. He performs a 21-and-up-only show at 8 p.m. and an 18-and-up-only show at 10:30 at Improv Comedy Theater in Tampa. $15–$17. (813) 864-4000.

Arrested Development: The progressive rap-soul poets who tackled political and social injustices in the '90s celebrate their 20th anniversary this year. Spiritual hit Tennessee and street-dweller ode Mr. Wendal are among the band's best-known works. See them at 9 p.m. at State Theatre in St. Petersburg. $17. (727) 895-3045.

To watch

Season premiere; Shark Tank, 8 p.m., ABC: Someone invented a belt buckle that holds beverages? Why? We've already got a helmet for that.

Season premiere; What Would You Do?, 9 p.m., ABC: This show needs more insane hypotheticals, like, "What would you do if you found your boss' wallet in the parking lot and discovered he was REALLY A VAMPIRE THIS WHOLE TIME?!?"
