Billy Joel and Elton John Coming to U.S. Airways Together

On Tuesday we told you about the big announcement we'd been summoned down to U.S. Airways Center for: free lunch, entertainment by The Big Bang as well as the Phoenix Suns dance team and their Gorilla mascot. Hell, they even brought us two little chocolate pianos and a flier to promote the press conference.

And what was the big news? As predicted in the comments section, it's the Billy Joel and Elton John Face To Face 2009 tour, a reprisal of their team tours begun in 1995 and last on the road in 2003. So thanks to commentator Tom Enright for the heads-up. What would be a suitable prize, Tom?

Oh, yes, and Billy and Elton will be in town on Thursday, March 26. Tickets will go on sale Saturday, December 13.

Now. we're off to consume some more free food and make a pitiful attempt to get the number of one of these Suns' dancer chicks. -- Martin Cizmar
