Elton John Gets Sioux Falls Street Named in His Honor
Elton John just had a street named in his honor. But it's not in his boyhood home of Pinner, England. And you won't find it in L.A. or Atlanta, where he's long maintained homes. Instead, Rocket Man Road is in Sioux Falls, and runs in front of the Denny Sanford Premier Center where Elton will perform Friday night, Oct. 2nd.
Rick Huffman, sales director of the city's Premier Center, tells KELO TV, "We thought he could use one more thing to hang on his wall."
The sign will be in place for a few weeks.
Elton, who has been dropping strong hints about cutting back on his tour commitments, especially in smaller cities, last performed in Sioux Falls in 2007.
