Billy Joel And Elton John To Tour Together As Long As They’re Still Standing

By: Maura / November 11, 2008

In news that will send many an ex-drama club member’s heart a-flutter, Elton John announced on The View this morning that his world tour with fellow ivory-tinkler Billy Joel, which begins in March, will last for “at least” two years. Think of it as a recession special: “It’s two people for the price of one,” Sir Elton told ABC’s class in chattering. “Our ticket prices are the same as you’d see anyone else, but there’s two of us. In this day and age, we hope to be getting people value for their money.” Now that is a message that anyone can get behind! After the jump, a few Joel/John collaborations from years past. (Hey, I got over denying my roots this summer, you know?)
