Elton John on Maui

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Maui Hawaii Lic. # RB-20941

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.

That looks like a great venue for a concert Richard.  I saw Elton John with Billy Joel in Las Vegas several years ago and it was a great show.

Oh to be in Maui right nowee...I'm sitting in my lovely lakefront home watching a White Christmas outside my windows. Beautiful, but I'm so DONE with winter!

My husband and I love Maui, got married there on Ulua Beach at sunset 10 years ago. Went back for our 7th---oy vey--it flooded and we had the same thing happening here, came home to washed out roads, damaged homes (not ours because we weren't on the lake at the time.)

So glad you enjoyed yourself w/Elton! Were there some young'uns there, too???

Hi Jim.  I always thought I'd have to fly to Vegas to see Elton John perform and it was a real treat to have him come here.

Hi Wanda.  I was taking a picture of the coconut trees and was surprised at how cloudy it looked.  It was nearly dark at the time and too dark to take pictures once Elton started.

Hi Dayle.  White is pretty too, especially in pictures rather than dealing with it.  There were all ages including people with gray hair like me!
