The Rocket Man Show is the No. 1 Elton John musical tribute. Hand Picked by Elton John, the show matches Elton’s insane energy night after night. Recreating an early concert with gorgeous, colorful, and flamboyant costumes, including boots, glasses, and jumpsuits, some of which were worn by Elton himself! With all the classic young Elton antics, audiences are in for a night of nostalgia, singing, laughing, and participation.
Not only is this clearly the most authentic Elton John tribute show in the world, but this was Elton‘s choice as his own body double to re-enact some of the most memorable moments of his career. These moments are being used in the promo for Elton’s ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ world tour. How’s that for peace of mind?
Rus Anderson, who plays Elton in the show, has put his extensive live and theatrical experience to work nightly, performing as a young Elton John in the tribute show ‘Rocket Man.’ This has earned him an endorsement from the official Elton John Fan club and praise from many prestigious clients, including The Elton John AIDS Foundation. In the past year alone, The Rocket Man Show has appeared in all four corners of the USA. Rus is keeping the 70s Elton alive by re-enacting his charisma, vocals, piano playing, and costumes — the ones we all know & love!
Rus and his full band of merry crackerjack musicians are the very best in the business. The show is 100 percent live in both vocals and instrumentation. Absolutely no tracks or lip-syncing. The performance itself is an extremely sincere, intense and visual spectacle of a journey. There are ballads and driving rock songs.
