The Rocket Man Made Three Records Last Week

Written by Chief Editor.

Last week, Elton set a record in Beaumont, Texas.


His Ford Arena concert on March 12 actually ended up setting three records for the establishment.

Ford Park management announced that Elton's performance broke the venue's record for attendance and for highest grossing performance, along with fastest selling show.

The engagement surpassed the attendance mark of approximately 8,600 at the 2010 Jason Aldean concert as approximately 8,900 fans filled the arena for Wednesday's show.

The event also became the highest grossing concert ever held at Ford Arena as Elton surpassed the previous record of another music veteran, Cher, which was set in 2004.

In addition, Elton's appearance also broke the record of fastest selling event, which was also set in 2004, by Hilary Duff.
