Sir Elton John Benefiting the Andy Roddick Foundation
A man who really needs no introduction, Elton John returns to Austin to help raise funds for the Andy Roddick Foundation.
Sir Elton Hercules John is one of the most highly acclaimed and successful solo artists of all time. He has achieved 35 gold and 25 platinum albums, has sold more than 250 million records worldwide, and holds the record for the biggest selling single of all time. Over the five decades since his career began in 1969, Elton has played more than 3,000 concerts worldwide.
The performance is part of the Eighth Annual Andy Roddick Foundation Gala. The Andy Roddick Foundation works to ensure youth in low-income communities have abundant opportunities to reach their full potential, through education and sports-based mentoring.
