La Crosse Concert Postponed to May 4 Due to Snow

The Rocket Man lands May 4.

Elton John’s show postponed this week by snow has been rescheduled for that day.

The National Weather Service doesn’t offer predictions that far out, though high temperatures in La Crosse average about 68 degrees that time of year, National Weather Service meteorologist Dan Jones said. And May snow is rare — the last time was in 1960 when nearly an inch fell.

The concert is once again scheduled for an 8 p.m. start time and, as before, Elton John plans to strike the first note promptly at 8.

La Crosse Center Director Art Fahey said the postponement due to Tuesday’s snowstorm was a hassle, but people handled it well. Fewer than 10 ticketholders didn’t know by 8 p.m.

Tickets bought for Tuesday’s show are still valid — simply show up May 4 and present the ticket. Ticketholders who can’t make the rescheduled show may get refunds if tickets were bought at the La Crosse Center box office or a reputable ticket outlet.
