Sir Elton Rocks The Mayas

Elton John

Elton John followed past appearances by Sarah Brightman, Placido Domingo and Luciano Pavarotti last night at the Chichen Itza Maya ruins in Yucatan. With ticket prices reaching as high as $800 US,  6,000 Rocket Man fans were on hand for the 90-minute show.

However, not everyone was thrilled with the show being staged on what are considered sacred grounds by many locals. As proof of the bad juju that would result, the stage collapsed on Thursday, injuring three workers. I wonder if he sang ” Burn Down The Mission?”
