Barbara Mann Theatre, Ft. Myers 7:30pm
Simply put - this is Elton! Hand-picked by Elton John himself, it was Rus Anderson’s own live production 'The Rocket Man Show' which got him noticed and chosen as Elton John's official body double for his 'Farewell Yellow Brick Road' world tour videos & photos! In the concert, Rus recreates the magic & live persona of a young Elton like no other. Storming around the stage with a fun-loving sense of flamboyance; part diva, part soccer player, killer vocalist, fierce piano player, all rock & roller.
His painstaking attention to detail includes wearing gorgeous, colorful & spectacular costumes (many worn by Elton) including his iconic boots, glasses & jumpsuits from 1973, as well as a sparkly Swarovski tuxedo from 1984. It is an extremely sincere, visual, theatrical, funny & interactive show, but most of all it is musically beautiful. There are ballads & driving rock songs. Audiences laugh, cry, sing & dance as they recall the highs & lows of Elton's legendary concerts.Remember when rock was young? You will after this show!
