By |

400px-Elton_John_on_stage,_2008Elton John and Billy Joel will be in Denver next month, Mayor John Hickenlooper announced yesterday, sounding as if some kind of corporate merger was taking place: “You take two different entities and the combination becomes far greater than the simple math of combining those two things.”

CBS4 adds that tickets, limited to eight per customer, go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m.

The two rockers won’t duel, but they’ll perform some duos, as well as each play a solo set.

As for Elton John, his visit comes at a time of slight regrets that he waited until he was 23 to lose his virginity, ABS-CBN News reports. He makes the statement in Joseph Galliano’s new book, “Dear me: A Letter to My Sixteen-Year-Old Self,” writing:

“I made a lot of mistakes. Stay away from drugs, they’re a waste of time. Stand up for every human being’s rights. Be loving, kind and strong. Set an example. You’re going to have one hell of a life!”

Another important nugget of wisdom, the gay singer writes:

“My advice to you is to never chase love. It will find you when you least expect it. Have fun, have lots of safe sex and enjoy your sexuality. Be proud of who you are.”
