Whether you're a rocket man or a rocket woman, don't make plans just yet to go jetting off to Ticketmaster when tickets go on sale this Saturday morning for Elton John's upcoming (Friday, April 5th at 8 pm to be exact) Nashville show at the Bridgestone Arena.
That's because Nashville's News 2 This Morning (WKRN) is giving you a chance to see the John for free. This week, tune in to Channel 2 for your call-in cue as the morning team gives away a pair of Elton John tickets at some point between 5-7 a.m. (that's Nashville/Central time) each day. The 22nd caller will win. A hint: it would be very strange to see this cue be in any hour besides the 6 o'clock one. And yes, the definitely untiny dance of a prize may be a pretty big step, indeed: tickets for the concert retail for $25.30 - $134.50 before fees. Also, if you're not a local John-ee, don't get too flushed: WKRN streams newscasts live online and through their app. You can even enter here on their website too.
This will be Elton and the band's first headlining Nashville appearance in seven years (he has made in-town tour stops with Billy Joel more recently).
“It has been far too long since Elton John has performed at Bridgestone Arena and we are thrilled to announce his return," said Bridgestone Arena Vice President of Booking, David Kells. "Elton John's concerts are filled with hits that keep the audience singing along from start to finish. This is one concert not to be missed!”
Oh, and for the record? Much like a crocodile, this news team rocks (sometimes literally, if oft-used rocket knucks count as proof)...so if you've got some extra time on your hands, check out their amusing Facebook page and/or YouTube channel and attempt to get caught up on their circle of on-screen life.
