Elton John To Play Matthew Shepard Benefit In Denver
Sir Elton John will play the Wells Fargo Theatre in Denver on Tuesday, April 12th in a show that will benefit the Matthew Shepard Foundation.
A gay rights advocate, John seems like a logical choice for the show. John previously played similar benefits in Laramie in 1999 and 2009.
Elton last played Denver in February 2010, co-headlining with Billy Joel at the Pepsi Center.
“Sir Elton has stood up for equality and dignity for all people, for more than a decade, through his tremendous generosity to the Foundation,” writes Judy Shepard in the press release. “His benefit concerts in Laramie in 1999 and 2009 sustained our educational work, bringing hope and inspiration to the community. We are deeply grateful for his continuing support and for the example he sets for all of us.”
Tickets, $49-$149, are on sale Saturday, Mar. 5 at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.
