The team at the North Charleston Coliseum announced a pretty big November concert this week. British-born, Atlanta-based songwriter, pianist, and pop singer Elton John and his full band are solid for a show on Fri. Nov. 9 at 8 p.m.
I hope they do a version of at lesser-known Top Ten single “Little Jeannie” off 1980’s 21 at 33.
