Here’s what Elton John could play tonight in Pittsburgh

October 18, 2018 GMT

According to Elton John’s website, every show on his three-year “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” swan song tour is sold out. Not surprising for an artist whose 50-plus year career has yielded nine Billboard No. 1 hits and 67 total entries on the Hot 100, meanwhile ranking him at the top of the Adult Contemporary chart.

For his accomplishments, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 1998.

To put it mildly, Sir Elton will have plenty of songs to choose from when he takes the stage tonight at PPG Paints Arena for the first of two Pittsburgh dates on this farewell tour.
