Elton John

Friday, Jan. 11, Taco Bell Arena


Here's a quick bit of math that puts the epic scope of Elton John's career into perspective: If you were to give one concert per day, every day, it would take nearly 11 years to reach the number of performances he has totalled over his five-decade career. Since his debut in 1970, the singer has taken the stage over 4,000 times; released 38 gold records and 31 platinum and multi-platinum albums; raked in five Grammys, a Tony and an Oscar; and charted more than 50 Top 40 hits. But all good things must come to an end, and his current Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour will mark the finish line of a marathon career. "I'll see you on the road," Elton John told fans in a YouTube video announcing the tour, and for Boiseans, that rings true—on Friday, Jan. 11, he'll bid us a personal farewell.
