I really love your band and your funny accent

21 at 33? 25 or 6 to 4? How about 4 in 36?

That’s the number of times (4) I will see Elton in concert in March and April (in the span of 36 days).  (!!!)

And so shall go the Pilgrimage Part Deux:

  • Friday, March 9: Ft. Lauderdale
  • Saturday, March 10: Orlando
  • Tuesday, March 12: Estero
  • Saturday, April 14: Las Vegas

Is it crazy? Yes.

Is it self-indulgent? Absolutely!

Does that make me a groupie? Perhaps.  I will have seen him live in concert 21 times in 33 years (ah, there’s one degree of separation for you):

  • 1979: Back in the USSA Tour (Atlanta)
  • 1982: Jump Up! Tour (Atlanta)
  • 1984: Breaking Hearts Tour (Hollywood)
  • 1988: USA 1988 Tour (Miami)
  • 1993: The One Tour (Miami)
  • 1995: Face to Face Tour (Miami)
  • 1998: Big Picture Tour (Miami)
  • 1999: An Evening with Elton John (Atlanta)
  • 2002: Face to Face 2002 Tour (Ft. Lauderdale)
  • 2005: Peachtree Road Tour (Ft. Lauderdale)
  • 2006: The Captain and the Kid (New York)
  • 2007: 2007 Tour (Estero)
  • 2008: Rocket Man Tour (Gainesville)
  • 2010: The Union Tour (via Livestream)
  • 2010: The Union Tour (Daytona Beach)
  • 2010: The Union Tour (Lakeland)
  • 2011: Tribeca Film Festival (via Livestream)
  • 2012: 2012 Tour (Ft. Lauderdale)
  • 2012: 2012 Tour (Orlando)
  • 2012: 2012 Tour (Estero)
  • 2012: 2012 Tour (Las Vegas)

I say, bring out the sequins and feather boas and let the groupieness begin!

(By the way, the title of this post is a snippet from the song Sick City, in case you were wondering).
