Two Officials Try To Block Elton’s Show

According to the AFP on February 24, 2004, organisers of Elton’s Bayonne, France concert on May 28 would pay the municipality 370,000 euros for the hiring of the venue, and for workers to set up the stage. That’s not okay with two councillors, opposed to the deal going through after the city had cut subsidies to certain associations by 10%. And while the pair ”don’t have anything against Elton,” they object to the ”indecent” cost of tickets, ranging from between 50 and 300 euros (or 63 and 380 dollars).
