Elton John will follow in the footsteps of yet another "Piano Man" -- former touring partner, Billy Joel -- by ringing in the New Year at Brooklyn New York’s Barclays Center. The December 31st show is but one of six new North American stops Elton has announced for the end of 2014. New cities now on the books include concerts in Vancouver, BC; Spokane, Washington; Denver, Colorado; and Portland, Oregon. Elton already has June shows scheduled for Charleston, West Virginia; Virginia Beach, Virginia; and Charlotte, North Carolina.
Although his concert repertoire will always include his massive '70s and '80s hits, Elton John has shed the outlandish stage costumes, which were his trademark during those years -- the result of which, he credits to his maturing years: "There are certain things that I don't do anymore. As you get older, you change the way you think, the way you dress. Um, I always liked to dress a little differently, from other people. But, I'm nowhere near the fashion victim that I was a long time ago."
