Elton John Tribute at Johns Hopkins

A night of flamboyant costumes, rhinestone-studded sunglasses and crocodile rock awaits when "Fantastic: A Tribute to Elton John featuring 'Even Stephen'" hits Shriver Hall Auditorium at 8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 31, on the Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

Billed as one of the best celebrity impersonators in the world, Stephen 'Even Stephen' Sorrentino will assume the dress, mannerisms, and piano and vocal style of Elton John, accompanied by a classic rock band. Their show features special effects and musical adaptations of John's work, including a tribute to Marilyn Monroe during John's well-known song for Monroe, "Candle in the Wind." Sorrentino will go through numerous costume changes as Elton John, whom he has been imitating since high school. Through it all, Sorrentino will cover John's classic rock anthems like "Take Me to the Pilot," "Your Song," "The Bitch is Back," and "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting."

Tickets are available in advance at $15 for general admission and senior citizens and $10 for full-time Johns Hopkins students, parents and staff. Any remaining tickets will be available for purchase at the door for an additional $2 per ticket in each category. To order tickets or for information, call the Office of Special Events at 410-516-7157. The event is cosponsored by the dean of student life, the Parents Association and the Office of Special Events in celebration of Family Weekend.
