Cajundome celebrates anniversary with Elton John in concert
The Lafayette Cajundome has announced that Elton John will appear in concert on Nov. 10 at the venue as it celebrates its 25th anniversary year.
Sir Elton will be performing a “Greatest Hits Live” concert, featuring big hits and classic album tracks from throughout his five-decade career. In a decade that has seen much of the music industry suffering from lack of album and concert sales, Elton John has consistently been one of the most successful live acts on the road. His repertoire includes classic original tunes such as “Your Song,” “Daniel,” “Rocket Man,” “Bennie and the Jets,” and many more. Elton John is one of the top-selling solo artists of all time, with 35 gold and 25 platinum albums, and 29 consecutive Top 40 hits. He has sold more than 250 million records worldwide and holds the record for the biggest-selling single of all time.
Tickets for the show go on sale Oct. 1. Prices are $32, $62, and $92 and will be available online at www.ticketmaster.com or by phone (800) 745-3000.
