Elton John Is Playing A Free Show Tonight, And You Can Get Tickets Today


Tonight the Tribeca Film Festival kicks off with a free outdoor screening of Cameron Crowe’s Elton John/Leon Russell documentary The Union at the North Cove at the World Financial Center, and the movie will be followed by a live performance by the Rocket Man himself. The screening starts at 8:15, and to get in, you’ll need a wristband, which will tell you where to sit; wristbands (limit two per person) will be distributed at the BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center, 199 Centre Street, beginning at 4 p.m. today. If this all sounds appealing to you, you’ll probably want to a) get in line before then and b) pick up an umbrella, since the event’s rain or shine, and there are isolated thunderstorms predicted for this evening.
