Nearly 9,000 people packed the Civic Center on Wednesday night to see Elton and his band perform for the first time in Bismarck, North Dakota. And they were not disappointed.

There were a few open seats here and there, according to the Tribune. But for the most part, the fans did not need them - most were on their feet throughout the show that ran nearly three hours.

Ross Horner, marketing director for the Civic Center, said the concert was the highest grossing concert ever at the venue, bringing in nearly $800,000.

"Feedback from the promoter and Elton's people was that Bismarck was a great host and we may see him back sooner rather than later," Horner said
