Elton John Electrifies Bossier City, Louisiana [Pictures, Videos]
Elton John drew fans from across the Ark-La-Tex for his March 22 show at CenturyLink Center, and the knighted piano master put on a show they’d never forget.
The CenturyLink Center was speckled with people wearing feathered boas, funky glasses and retro clothes. To say the crowd was excited to see one of Sir Elton’s rare appearances in Louisiana would be an understatement; the house was packed to capacity.
John’s performance featured a variety of his best songs written throughout his 40+ year career, including “Rocket Man,” “Candle in the Wind” and “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” — all enhanced by dazzling light displays and a constantly-changing big-screen TV.
But as moving and awe-inspiring as John’s performance was, the coolest part of the concert came during the finale.
Closing the stellar show with “Crocodile Rock,” John had the entire CenturyLink Center on its feet, clapping and singing the ‘la la la la la laaa’ chorus. It was the perfect way to end an amazing night.
