If I told you Reginald Kenneth Dwight was coming to town, you’d probably say, “Who?”. But once I started singing “B-b-b-bennie and the Jetsssss”, you’d immediately know that I was talking about none other than Sir Elton John. The musical legend had humble beginnings in the UK, initially playing piano at a local pub and eventually joining a band called Bluesology (which, interestingly, is where he got his new name – from bandmates Elton Dean and Long John Baldry). Then, in 1988, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II, dubbing him an official “Sir.”
Fast forward to today, and Sir Elton boasts more than 300 million record sales, a recent movie biopic tucked neatly in his rhinestone-studded belt, and he is currently on a three-year Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour. Take it from us – you should definitely see him before the yellow brick road comes to an end! No matter where you catch him, we’ll help you find where to park for Elton John.

Milwaukee, WI – Fiserv Forum
Show Date: October 19, 2019
When you think Milwaukee, you probably think “beer”, and you wouldn’t be wrong. After all, Schlitz, Pabst Blue Ribbon and Miller all come from this city. What does all of that have to do with Elton John? I’m glad you asked. 🙂 If you look at a map of Milwaukee right around Fiserv Forum, you’ll notice a lot of eating and drinking establishments very close by. Why not a little BBQ & brew before the show? Check out Carson’s (the URL for their website is literally www.ribs.com), located at 301 W. Juneau Ave. – it is just a 1-minute walk from Fiserv Forum. Feeling all full and happy (and not at all worried about parking, since you made a reservation), you’ll be sure to have a rocking good time at the show.
Nashville, TN – Bridgestone Arena
Show Date: October 28, 2019
Bridgestone Arena is located at the very heart of Nashville, near the Music City Hall of Fame, Music City Walk of Fame Park and lots of other places with claims to fame. Elton John fits right in, bringing his world-wide fame with him. As if watching Elton perform weren’t enough, how ‘bout a little sight-seeing and photo-opping before the concert? You could even visit the Johnny Cash Museum and Cafe, only a couple of blocks away. Because why not check out two musical legends while you have the chance? Simply reserve your parking spot in advance, put on your walking boots, paint the town a little, then mosey on back for a concert that puts the Music in Music City.
Memphis, TN – FedExForum
Show Date: October 30, 2019
“Walking in Memphis, walking with my feet 10 feet off of Beale” may not be lyrics from an Elton John song, but they are perfect for where Elton is going to be on October 30. FedExForum is located at 191 Beale St., Memphis – right in the heart of the Beale Street Entertainment District. Before hearing Elton John sing “I Guess That’s Why They Call It the Blues”, why not take a little time to explore the area and visit B.B. King’s Blues Club, the Memphis Music Hall of Fame and Elvis’s statue (#selfietime)? Go ahead and walk with your feet 10 feet off of Beale, and let us help you find where to park for Elton John.
Atlanta, GA – State Farm Arena
Show Dates: November 1 & 2, 2019
Two show dates in a row? You can bet this means sellout crowds! State Farm Arena is located in the heart of Atlanta (I’m seeing a theme with Elton’s concert venues), and that means it’s super duper convenient to stash your ride and do a little local exploring. Want a nearby fun experience before the concert? Check out the CNN studio right next door! This just in: Elton John fans are fun-loving and savvy people who know how to plan for a good time. Check out our blog on parking at State Farm Arena for more info on this top-ranked entertainment spot.
Cleveland, OH – Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse
Show Date: November 11, 2019
Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse is a top-notch venue that is home to the NBA’s Cleveland Cavaliers, among other sports teams, and hosts 200+ shows per year – welcoming close to 2 million people. Just up the road are many different eateries, including Flannery’s Pub (323 Prospect Ave.), so you can fuel up for lots of jumping around at the concert. Maybe you could even come shoulder to shoulder with fellow Elton fans and belt out a little “Rocket Man” in practice for your role in the audience sing-along. No matter what you plan before the show, remember to use your ParkMobile app to find where to park for Elton John.
Boston, MA – TD Garden
Show Date: November 15, 2019
“The British are coming, the British are coming!” Well, more precisely “A Brit is coming”, and this British invasion – aka Elton John – is more than welcome. If you’ve brushed up on your American history at all, you’ll know that Paul Revere’s “midnight ride” started at his home in Boston – just a hop and a skip away from TD Garden. If you’ve got some time to spend before the concert and you want an immersive history experience, try walking the Freedom Trail – it will take you right by Paul’s house. And unlike the saying you’ve so often heard associated with Boston accents – “pahk the cah in Hahvahd yahd”, we advise you to “pahk the cah” with the help of ParkMobile. Then you’ll be free to wander the Freedom Trail and then listen to your fav Brit, Sir Elton John.
