    He should headline The Official 2011 Gay Orgy®, after the Keynote Speaker, of course.

    I got tickets to see him May 6 in the small city of Duluth MN. He is playing in an arena that seats 7,500 people. Can't fucking wait.

    He would be a for sure headliner at any festival.

    Wouldn't this be more relevant if he were on the lineup? Moron.

    Not sure why he is playing the Amsoil Arena in May then. 7,500 capacity at an avg of 100 bucks per ticket. That's well under a million after taking account of everything that goes into his show.

    306 is a hefty price. The most expensive tix here are 129+tax, which I bought 2 of. They had 79 dollar tickets as well and I read that there were even 29 dollar tickets. Best thing about the arena is that there isn't a bad seat in the place.

    I'd love to see him headline a day of Coachella. Much stronger IMO than a lot of bands that have done so over recent years. I haven't seen him for a few years now but last time I did he was fantastic.

    I already said it, and I will say it again. Elton John would melt faces at Coachella. Not likely at all, but it would add a little epic-ness to this coachella.

    Just let her bitch a little. It helps to ease the pressure and prevents her from cropdusting the whole board with her charm.

    Maybe not, if he hears about the Gay Orgy afterwards.
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    Elton John could (and should) definitely headline Coachella. I saw him play a 90 minute set last month at a private fundraiser, to a crowd of about 750 people. AMAZINGNESS!!

    I saw him in SD last year and he was good, not mind-blowing. He wouldn't be able to put on the show that McCartney or Waters did. He'd be a pretty cool headliner, I'd see him, but not a must-see if you've seen him already.

    Elton would be a great headliner.

    I guess the price is higher in certain markets. Elton played in Columbia at the basketball arena in 2007, all the seats on the lower level were about $95 and the cheap ones were like $60. We sat in the cheap seats, and it was still a great show.

    I wouldn't complain if Elton headlined Coachella.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    meh, would not be interested seeing him at coachella. If I really wanted to see him I would go to vegas. If there is going to be a geezer act at coahcella it should at least be someone elusive that never tours. A good exsample although not a headliner is donovan.

    Big improvement on Kings of Leon.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J6C2j...eature=related
    4:15 of this clip from 1995 says he'd never do festivals ever again, which generally seems to be true. The rest of the clip is entertaining to watch Elton have a Kanye like meltdown over his monitor mix and festival cameramen capturing his teleprompter.

    Yeah, this is not really an arguable point. He'd be great, and even if you don't like him you can't say he's not a big enough or respected enough artist.
