Eugene Weekly : Calendar : 2.17.11





.This Week's Calendar | Galleries | Music @ the Clubs

Deadline for Calendar and Art in the Galleries submissions are noon on Thursday, a week before the issue that covers your event. Send an e-mail with event, date, time, location and cost to attend to cal@eugeneweekly.com

One of the most exhilarating music moments in movie history takes place in Cameron Crowe's Almost Famous, when the members of the fictional band Stillwater " infighting, fractured, at the end of their rope " sit in silent disgust on the tour bus, listening to the piano-plinking opening verses of Elton John's "Tiny Dancer." As the song's momentum builds, Billy Crudup, Jason Lee and company slowly start bobbing to the beat, and when it reaches its righteous chorus, everyone throws his head back and sings along at the top of his lungs. It's an unforgettable scene, capturing to a T the musician's timeless appeal. At his peak, Elton John " in collaboration with songwriter Bernie Taupin " was the greatest entertainer in the world: That familiar voice, capable of angel-scraping the heavens, belted out a series of timeless hits from "Rocket Man" to "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road." Sir Elton is close as we come to royalty in this country, and he graces UO's Matthew Knight Arena at 8 pm Thursday, Feb. 17; the show is SOLD OUT, though you could do worse things than stand outside Matt and get as close to Elton as you're likely to get.
