Elton John @ 75 the perfect complement to his final tour
With a stop in Atlanta on September 22, Elton John will pay respects to his loyal Atlanta fans and neighbors as he has been an Atlanta resident for much of the time he has spent living in the U.S.
Elton John is on his last U.S. tour and turned 75 this year, and a new book, ELTON JOHN @ 75, celebrates and examines the rock icon’s life through the lens of 75 career accomplishments and life events. Key studio albums are featured, but author Gillian Gaar delves deeper to reveal the events that helped chart the course of Elton’s career:,
Key performances such as his breakthrough performance at LA’s Troubadour, and the historic Soviet Union and Dodger Stadium concerts
Legendary collaborations with the likes of George Michael, Billy Joel, and Kate Bush
His many film and television roles, including Tommy and The Muppet Show
Tireless work on behalf of AIDS research
Notable awards and honors, including knighthood
And of course, his collaboration with longtime cowriter Bernie Taupin
Beginning with his 1969 debut LP, Elton John is regarded as one of the most influential musicians and performers of the previous five decades. In examining 75 touchstones, Gaar provides a unique presentation of Elton’s career arc, from his first steps as a solo artist to the breakthrough album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road to his flamboyant stage presence, and beyond.
Every page features stunning concert and candid offstage photography. There are also images of gig posters, 7-inch picture sleeves, and more: a gatefold Elton John timeline, a previously unpublished gatefold artwork, an 8×10-inch glossy print, and a pullout poster. The result is a must-have for Elton John fans.
