Elton John to visit Laramie


Elton John returns to Laramie on Friday April 3rd for a concert to benefit the Matthew Shepard Foundation.

Folks who caught Sir Elton at the Arena Auditorium here in Laramie 10 years ago report that it was one of the best shows of their lives. Don't miss this one!

Tickets: $35, $65, $85, $125, on sale to the general public Monday March 2nd. Reserve tickets at the Arena Auditorium box office, the Wyoming Union, Fine Arts box office or online. Limit tickets per order.

Sasquatch! set the 2009 festival schedule this week. Now I need to readjust the budget so I can spend Memorial Day at the beautiful Gorge once again. This lineup is fulfilling a lot of my hopes, especially Animal Collective and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Hoorah!
