Elton John to Ring in NYE at Barclays Center
Have New Year’s Eve plans yet? We’ve got a show for you—the bitch is back! Legendary rock singer, composer, and pianist Elton John is slated to play the Jay Z-championed Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY on New Year’s Eve—his very first show of the sort. He’ll be playing all the hits, from “Candle in the Wind” to “Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting” (or so we assume), so you’re not going to want to miss this if you’re in the New York. Maybe you’ll even welcome 2015 with a group sing-a-long to “Tiny Dancer”—who knows? Want to go? American Express cardholders are in luck—there’s a presale for tickets happening right now. Everyone else, tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, September 26 at 10:00am via Ticketmaster, so get clicking. For more details, visit John’s website.
Born Reginald Kenneth Dwight in 1947, Elton John has collaborated with lyricist Bernie Taupin for over 35 years, creating 30 albums together to date. Over his five-decade career, John has sold more than 300 million records and boasts fifty Top 40 hits, seven consecutive No. 1 albums (in the United States), and nine No. 1 singles. For the 31 consecutive years from 1970 to 2000, John had at least one song in the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and his single, “Something About The Way You Look Tonight/Candle In The Wind 1997” is the greatest-selling single of all time.
