Rocket Man Begins Lyceum Series


“The Rocket Man Show” will kick off the Kohlenberg Lyceum series at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 27 in Baldwin Hall Auditorium.

Rus Anderson is Elton John’s official body double for his “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” world tour videos and photos. Picked by Elton himself, Anderson performs as young Elton John, singing his greatest hits with spot on vocals and fierce piano playing.

Anderson recreates an early concert with gorgeous, colorful and flamboyant costumes actually worn by Elton, including boots, glasses and 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 and participation.

General admission tickets are $10 each, including tax. Tickets are available now at the Truman State University cashier window in McClain Hall or online at
