Elton John has announced that he will perform April 3 in Laramie at UW’s Arena Auditorium. It’s a benefit concert for the Matthew Shepard Foundation, an organization founded by Judy Shepard after the murder of her son, Matthew.
Tickets for the Laramie show, $35-$85, will go on sale at 8 a.m. Monday at wyomingathletics.com.
Here’s a statement about the event from Judy Shepard: “Ten years ago, Sir Elton did a concert in Laramie to benefit the Foundation. It was wonderful beyond description. He is a gracious and generous human being. We are sincerely grateful for his continuing support.”
In case you’re wondering, the evening concert does not conflict with any of the events at the arts symposium at the UW Conference Center April 2-4.
