I think the first live concert I ever attended as a kid was an Elton John spectacular at Dodger Stadium.
If I remember correctly it was the "Rock of the Westies" tour.
I vividly recall the bedazzled Dodger uniform he donned for part of the show.
Memorable, clearly, to say the least.
In a six degrees (maybe more) of separation story, one of my college roommates at 'SC, a very talented singer, songwriter and piano player, Adam Chester, is now Elton's soundcheck stand-in and he hooked me up to buy front-and-center tickets to Elton's "Red Piano" show in Vegas a couple of years ago. It was the first time I'd seen him perform live since the ballpark concert in the '70s. His voice was still strong and he's ever-the-showman.
And now it looks like I may soon have another chance to see him for free. But he won't be singing.
