Today is being called ”Sir Elton John Day” in Grande Prairie.
Mayor Bill Given gave a proclamation at the Crystal Centre Wednesday afternoon, claiming the day in honour of the singer, in preparation for his concert this evening.
Given says the announcement seemed fitting for the city.
“This is obviously a milestone for the community, it’s a milestone for the Crystal Centre, and probably one of the biggest events really to ever happen in the entertainment sector in Grande Prairie, and so we thought it was completely appropriate to recognise that with this proclamation.”
Elton will be playing a sold out solo show at the venue.
