This weekend music legend Elton John returns to the islands, for what is now three consecutive Januarys. Along for the ride with the rocket man are his band, featuring longtime guitarist Davey Johnstone and drummer Nigel Olsson. They took time to speak with HPR’s Dave Lawrence before the trip, including memories about the band’s first visit to Hawai`i forty years ago.
Elton John and his band perform at the Blaisdell Arena in Honolulu this Friday and Saturday night. Get more information on their website, eltonjohn.com. Check out some choice recent live performance videos below.
HPR-1 has been partially restored to O'ahu's North Shore and much of Kaua'i; we are working on an electrical problem at the Mt. Ka'ala site and once that's been resolved, repairs can be made to restore full HPR-1 signal strength. All other transmitters are operating normally.
