The Rocket Man Show is the #1 Elton John musical tribute. Hand-Picked by Elton John, Rus Anderson was the official body double for his ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ world tour videos & photos. The Show matches Elton’s insane energy night after night. Recreating an early concert with gorgeous, colorful & flamboyant costumes actually worn by Elton – including boots, glasses & jumpsuits from 1973, as well as his sparkly tuxedo from 1984! With all the classic young Elton antics, audiences are in for a night of nostalgia, singing, laughing & participation. It is clearly the most authentic Elton John tribute show in the world. Rus Anderson has been officially hired by Elton John himself to re-enact the most memorable moments of his career.
Rus has put his extensive live & theatrical experience to work nightly, performing as a young Elton John in the tribute show ‘Rocket Man’. This has earned him an endorsement from the official Elton John Fan club & praise from many prestigious clients, including The Elton John AIDS Foundation. In the past year alone, The Rocket Man Show has appeared in all four corners of the USA. Rus is keeping the 70’s Elton alive by re-enacting his charisma, vocals, piano playing & costumes – the ones we all know & love!
Rus & his full band of merry crackerjack musicians are the very best in the business. The show is 100% live in both vocals & instrumentation. Absolutely no tracks or lip-syncing. The performance itself is an extremely sincere, intense & visual spectacle of a journey. There are ballads & driving rock songs. Audiences laugh, cry, sing & dance as they recall the highs & lows of Elton’s epic career.
