What to wear to an Elton John concert?? (new pics)

on 5/1/10 1:31 am, edited 5/1/10 1:46 am
My wife and I are going to an Elton John concert tonight. I don't know what to wear. I was thinking of maybe blue jeans, a nice tee shirt, and my navy blue blazer.  But I'm open to suggestions.

By the way.. Here are the latest pics of me. My wife took them on our sunset bike ride last night.
Without my surgery, I wouldn't even think of going to a concert, much less ride a bicycle because a 500 pound man with a 72 inch waist wouldn't fit into a theater seat or fit on a bicycle either.
This is such a great feeling!

Looking great! Love that you are bike riding and going to concerts, living! I say go for the jeans and t-shirt with the blazer that way you can un-layer if you need to. Have fun!

 Wow - look at you!!  I'd say you can wear any darn thing you  I'm looking forward to having all those clothing options open up for me too.  My lap band surgery is in two weeks.

Enjoy the concert - I'm sure whatever you decide to wear you will look terrific in.  Congrats on getting the Elton John tickets.  Here in Canada they are like gold when he comes

Have fun - and keep on doing what you are doing.

You look HOT!  I think your planned outfit is great.  I saw Elton John & Billy Joel in concert and we did jeans and t-shirts.  The blazer will take it up a notch.  Have fun at the concert - he puts on a great show.

Holy smokes, you look great!!  I love your bking jersey too! I'm a new road biker myself.  It is such great exercise.  

I think jeans and a nice shirt are quite appropriate for the concert tonight. Have a great time and enjoy!

WOW Herc!! Your looking so amazing, way to work that tool.

My suggestion would be to wear clothes! Whatever you feel comfy in. There will be so many people there, no one will notice what anyone is wearing. Be comfy and enjoy. Maybe some bling type glasses? lots of jewels? LOL Ok, I will stop now. ENJOY

Well, you don't want to outshine Queen (I mean Sir) Elton John, so I wouldn't wear anything flashy or sparkly!

Jeans and a t-shirt without the blazer gets my vote.

I love your new pictures! You look absolutely great!! I vote for the t-shirt, jeans and blazer too so you can peel out if it gets too hot and you will still look hot as well lol!! I hope you and your wife have a great time! I've been looking at bikes lately, you seem to have so much fun with yours!       Connie

Oh forgot to add, hope you both really enjoy the concert. I am sure it will be fun! Elton has aged as have we all, but he still sounds GREAT!

I hope you enjoy the concert, I would wear whatever you find comfortable.  I went to see Elton John last year at Mohegan Sun, here in Connecticut, I was so looking forward to it but I thought it was a truly awful show.  It felt like he was just going through the motions to me.  I went to see Hank Williams Jr at another show and it was incredible and believe me I am no fan of country music but he was a true showman and so incredibly talented.  We had a blast.
