Billy Joel vs. Elton John – Face-to-Face Tribute
September 2, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Beginning in 1994, two iconic legends of Rock n’ Roll began a historic series of 200 shows that would thrill hundreds of thousands of concert goers all over the U.S. and around the world. Coming this Labor Day Weekend, two of the country’s best Billy Joel and Elton John tribute artists will join forces to recreate this amazing show at the Tybee Post Theater.
Elton John and Billy Joel called their show Face to Face, and together they made themselves the longest running and most successful concert tandem in pop music history. During these shows, the two played their own songs, each other’s songs and performed duets together.
It was pure luck that last year Bill Connors (aka Elton) and Hugh Tyner (aka Billy) found each other, and each with his own successful tribute career, decided to come together to form their own version of the Face-to-Face Show. Bill has played all over the country and on cruise ships as Elton for decades. Hugh has had a successful career playing all over the world, and was a regular on the Vegas strip for 18 years. His band Almost Billy Joel and the Allentown Band played to a sold-out house at the Post last year.
This two-hour spectacular recreation of the Face-to-Face show is accompanied by a full 6-piece live band. Just a few hits you can expect to hear include, of course, “Just the Way You Are,” “Crocodile Rock,” and “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me” to “My Life,” “Philadelphia Freedom,” and “New York State of Mind,” and many more.
Saturday, Sept. 2, 8 pm. Tickets $25 Reserved seating, $30 premium seats.
