The Rocket Man Show comes to the Island Event Center

Welch, Minn. (December  16, 2019)  Hand-picked by Elton John himself, Rus Anderson performs as a young Elton John in The Rocket Man Show – driving a night of Elton’s greatest hits with spot on vocals and fierce piano playing as he performs at Treasure Island Resort & Casino on April 25.

In the show, Rus Anderson recreates the magic and live persona of a young Elton like no other.
