elton john is coming to town


Elton John’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour will make a stop in Des Moines on Thursday, July 11, 2020. Ticket info can be found right here.

I’m not super familiar with his music, but I know enough of his songs (and enough about his cultural status) to understand that this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. This scene from Almost Famous features one of his most underrated gems.

Also: it really seems like Des Moines is hosting quite a few big names over the next year. I hope this means we’re considered a “must visit” for tours, because it’s so nice when performers stop here. I can enjoy a show and literally walk back home. What a life!
