The Rocket Man Show:

A Tribute to Elton John

Simply put-this is Elton! Rus Anderson is Elton John's official body double for his Farewell Yellow Brick Road world tour. Hand-picked by the internationally acclaimed singer himself, it was Rus' own live production of The Rocket Man Show that first got him noticed. In the show, Anderson recreates the magic and live persona of Young Elton like no other. Storming around the stage with a fun-loving sense of flamboyance; part diva, part soccer player, killer vocalist, fierce piano player, all rock & roller. His painstaking attention to detail includes wearing gorgeous, colorful, and spectacular costumes (many worn by Elton) including his iconic boots, glasses, and jumpsuits from 1972, as well as a sparkly Swarovski tuxedo from 1984. Clearly the most authentic Elton John tribute show in the world, it has headlined at the House of Blues, Hard Rock Live, Caesar's, Harrah's, Legends in Concert, BB King's, Universal Studios and Walt Disney World.

Tickets start at $28
