On October 20, Elton John is going to be performing his classic 1973 album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road at New York's New Amsterdam Theater with the help of some of his friends, including Rufus Wainwright, Ben Folds, Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters and the fearless and hilarious Jane Krakowski. I'd love to go, but not being totally rich, I can't afford it. But I ain't mad (or too mad), as the concert will raise funds for a number of AIDS charities. I'll just put it on the list of Elton shows I wish I'd attended, including his 60th birthday concert, the solo piano show he recently did (it was a Hilary Clinton benefit, though, and as an Obama supporter, I didn't want to spend too much money on that, even though I'm OK with Hil) and the concerts he did in NYC a few years back with a full orchestra. Find out more at Elton's website.

Oh, that sounds cool. Wish I could be there. I just bought the vinyl over summer and fell in love with it upon first listen.
