There isn’t much that hasn’t been said about music superstar Elton John. His career spans decades and his credits include 35 gold and 25 platinum albums, 29 consecutive Top 40 hits, Six Grammy wins and more than 250 million records sold worldwide. Sir Elton also holds the record for the biggest-selling single of all time, “Candle in the Wind ’97” (a tribute to the late Princess Diana) which sold 37 million copies. On top of his much-loved classic songs such as “Your Song,” “Rocket Man,” “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road,” “Bennie and the Jets” and countless others, the pianist’s extravagant costumes and over-the-top theatrics make his live shows distinctly memorable. In January he returned to the studio to record new songs for an upcoming album, which has the diehards rattling their jewelry. Expect to sing along as Elton John performs at the Richmond Coliseum on Saturday, March 17, at 8 p.m. $37-$138. 780-4970.
