I Was There: Tampa, Florida, USA

Elton and the band at USF Sun Dome Arena, September 14, 2012
"Last Friday night, Sir Elton played at the Sun Dome in Tampa, Florida. Excited to see him for a second time, I bought my mother and I tickets. They weren't the best as we were behind the stage in the "nose-bleeds". All I cared about though was being able to see my most favorite artist perform again. Being an 18 year old guy it's unusual to find another fan like myself. Anyway, as we walk into the venue Friday night, giddy with delight, two men approach us. We have idle chat (not knowing really who they were) but we come to find out that they work for Mr. John and they upgraded us to front row seats. At this point I feel like a Rocket Man! It was probably the best night of my life so far. He is such an inspiration to me, more than you'll ever know. I just wanted to show my appreciation to him and the brothers that gave us the tickets. It was probably the nicest thing anyone has ever done for us! Making eye contact with Elton while singing Don't Let the Sun Go Down On Me was the most indescribable thing! If it can get to them, I would like my unending thanks to go to Sir Elton and the guys that gave us the tickets. Thanks again."
