Elton John Rocks Tallahassee

Elton John rocked a near full house at the Leon County Civic Center tonight (or do I say last night?). For close to two and a half hours, Sir Elton performed number one hits like "I Guess That's Why They Call it the Blues," "Bennie and the Jets" and "Crocodile Rock."

Other tunes included "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road," Candle in the Wind" and "Philadelphia Freedom." The man certainly has stamina and practically played continuously with short breaks to sip water and acknowledge the crowd.

Elton John is an excellent performer and appreciates his fans. Towards the end of the evening, after leaving the stage, Sir Elton returned to the stage and signed autographs for fans near the stage, including concert programs, a sequined silver jacket and a green purse. I saw a few fans hold up shoes for him to autograph but he quite didn't make it to sign the shoes.

He then performed a few other hits before calling it a night.

Acoustics at the Civic Center were fabulous and my seats were awesome, too. Seventeen rows back from the stage. Lucked out in securing those gems!

Elton John rocked Florida's Capital City. And who said there isn't anything to do in Tallahassee?
