“Almost Elton John and the Rocketmen” will perform at The Ritz Theatre, 306 W. Main Street in Blytheville on Saturday, Aug. 28, at 7 p.m.

All seats are General Admission at $20 per person.

Jerred Price, aka “Almost Elton John,” will blow you away with his tribute to his idol, hero and friend: Sir Elton John.

Jerred is a self-taught pianist/singer who first started playing piano at the age of three. In 2014, he started headlining his own show at Hard Rock Cafe on world famous Beale Street in Memphis.

As his crowd grew, so did the venue. Jerred now is an artist in Residency at the legendary Lafayette’s Music Room, which has been graced by the presence of artists such as Billy Joel, KISS, Leon Russell and more.

Jerred was the featured performer at Elton John’s 60th Birthday celebration in New York City at the Elton John AIDS Foundation’s “Lunch Around the World” event. Jerred’s mannerisms, vocals, outfits, and piano playing will make you think you are in front of the Rocket Man himself. He has performed for audiences of 50 to 50,000-plus.

This event is Sponsored by the Ritz Civic Center Foundation. Tickets will be available at the door that evening. Advance tickets can be ordered at ritzy-glitzy.ticketleap.com/almostej/.

This event could be called a “Welcome Home” for Jerred as he has roots in Mississippi County Arkansas.
