Photo Gallery: Elton John at United Center

| November 4, 2018 | 0 Comments

Elton John delivered two nights at The United Center last week,  shedding a few tears along the way. Though it wasn’t his final, final performance in the area (he’ll be back in Rosemont in February), for many fans it will be the last chance to see him perform again.

“Reg” recruited longtime band members Davey Johnstone (guitar), Nigel Olsson (drums) and Ray Cooper (percussion) to fill their former band positions, pointing out how happy he was to have them on stage at the UC.

He also took the time to confess his deep love for Chicago, noting it was a special city where he started on his journey to sobriety.

Though we’ll see him again 20 miles west in a few months, IE’s Ed Spinelli caught his Saturday night penultimate performance.
