The Elton John was on Maui this past week for his first-ever concert here. As Sir Elton John said, he has been coming to Maui for 40 years but this was his first concert here. What was to have been 1 performance on Friday was expanded to performances Thursday and Friday due to the tremendous demand for tickets. I attended the Friday performance which was absolutely awesome. Sir Elton never took a break during the 3 hour performance during which he played both new and long time favorites.
It was an open air performance with the audience seated beneath the stately coconut trees as shown. Weather was perfect and the dark sky is due to the time of day and not storm clouds.
Hawaii is fortunate to have venues on Maui and Oahu for concerts and shows. Each island is only a half hour flight from it's neighbor and it's always fun to travel from my little Kauai to a neighbor island. Next up on Maui is the comedian, Kathy Griffin on April 10.
