TVD Live Shots: Elton John at the United Center, 10/27

Listen, just go see him.

I can barely stand of the thought of you hemming and hawing at home, weighing the pros and cons of an expensive night out on the town. I get it. But might I just spare you the pain of contemplation and encourage you to treat yourself. Just go. See. Elton. Fucking. John. The Living Legend. Literally.

It’s hard to put into words the experience of seeing a musician who has been the soundtrack of lives for decades. It’s even harder to put into words when he’s still at the top of his game, busting out extensive, intricate piano solos night after night and sounding just as his did at 35. Bitches, I wept.

Fortunately Sir Elton’s farewell tour is extensive, concluding in 2020, so do yourself a favor and buy yourself a ticket. I won’t tell you again.
