Elton and Billy Joel are among the nominees for the 30th annual Pollstar Awards, given out by the trade publication for the concert industry.

They are contenders in the Best Residency category--John in Vegas and Joel at New York's Madison Square Garden.

Other classifications include Major Tour of the Year; Best Rock Tour; and Best Touring Musician. Elton is nominated in the latter group as well.

The awards, voted on by a panel of more than 2,000 live entertainment professionals, will be handed out February 13 in Los Angeles, at the end of the annual Pollstar Live! conference.
