HOUSTON—Elton John and his band are performing in Houston Thursday night at the Toyota Center.

The artist/ icon will be performing his classic No. 1 chart hits from his incredible five-decade career.

The band includes Davey Johnstone on guitar, John Mahon on percussion, Nigel Olsson on drums, Kim Bullard on keyboards, and on bass Matt Bissonette.

One of the most successful live bands on the road today, Elton and his band put on the kind of concert you will never forget: the entire audience standing, dancing and singing along with much-loved classic songs such as “Your Song”, “Rocket Man”, “Bennie and the Jets”, “Philadelphia Freedom”, “Crocodile Rock”, “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me”, and many more.

“It is an honor to be hosting Sir Elton John. We realize not many markets get to see a superstar of his caliber this often, and we are grateful for the opportunity,” said Amanda Mann, Assistant General Manager of Toyota Center.

Elton John is one of the top-selling solo artists of all time, with 35 gold and 25 platinum albums, 29 consecutive Top 40 hits, and he has sold more than 250 million records worldwide. He holds the record for the biggest selling single of all time, “Candle in the Wind ’97,” which sold 37 million copies. Since his career began in 1969 he has played almost 3,000 concerts worldwide.
