Happy 74th birthday to Reginald Dwight, better known as Sir Elton John. Elton has sold over 300 MILLION albums and has been awarded 5 Grammys. He is one of the world's biggest superstars, so we should find ourselves lucky that the Rocketman has visited Maine six different times over the years for live concerts. He's been good to us! It took a while though, as Elton didn't visit Maine until 1993.  Since then, he's been to Portland 5 times and Bangor once. If you've been lucky enough to see Elton, then you know he puts on one of the greatest shows ever. The last time Elton played anywhere was March 7, 2020..right before the pandemic hit. Hopefully, we will get concerts back this year and I'm sure Elton will be back on the road. This is a guy who has plenty of money and doesn't need to keep touring. But EJ loves playing music for us. Come back soon and happy birthday, Elton!
