  1. Although I am sorry to hear that he has food poisoning, Sir Elton John is losing more of my respect every day. I can’t believe he is so oblivious of current events and civil rights issues that he would play Arizona right now if he weren’t ill.

  2. The sausage he was eating was riddled with Hep or some such.

  3. I agree with your comment fully, Jack.

    I find it hard to believe that he can’t know. Its only been splattered all over the news, let alone when you touch down in the USA. A lot of us here are protesting it in numerous ways, and all the court action and boycotts can’t be hard to see.

    You have to wonder what he’ll do next to top this…

    It was bad enough Elton John played for the Far Right, Homophobic
    Rush so called Wedding? Rush does appear to have to have a woman for those photo shots to keep up his appearance. I don’t care if Elton John gave all the money to AIDS or Cancer Funding. I would never take money nor perform for a person who preaches Hatred 24/7 against the L.G.B.T. Community or Minority in America and the basic Civil Rights of all Americans. Now we have Elton John performing in Arizona after he gets over being ill. Does Elton John read the news? America is boycotting Arizona for their Homophobic Hatred, Racist, Profiling Bigoted State they are. That is where all the Bigots, Racist and Homophobics go to live. I think Elton John is on some kind of drug and does not give a rats ass, just show me the money. Maybe he has joined some kind of cult. He has turned his back on those who supported him. Guess this is what happens when you get so rich you forget who made it all possible. One day Elton is going to wake up and realize there is no one who will pay to hear him perform. Sad to see him melt down against all we have fought for in Civil Rights in America.

    Elton John, is an entertainer,(one of the Best)a performer,Folks get over it,NOT all
    of America is againest Arizona,(##4)3,2,and 1. Do a little more reading,listening.
    Most of America is in trouble, cutting benifits beyond belief, the elders of America
    are hurting because of this money crunch,some going hungry, not able to buy needed
    meds.One city had to let their whole police force go,others are cutting back so much
    the safety of their city is in question.Blind American is in an endless rut.
    A solution/balance can be found, only when all facts,pro and con are on the exam
    table of reality. Till then, don’t be so fast to judge, and leave Elton John out
    of it, fair weather friends.

  6. I live in Tucson, it is somewhat of a moderate to liberal island in a very conservative state. I work next to the border with Mexico and have friends who have to go into the desert to retreave people trying to cross who are in trouble and sometimes dead bodies. I respect some persons desire to not come to AZ because of the new bill, however, I would remind all of you that the people that will be hurt most are Mexican-Amercian workers who clean the rooms and cut the lawns. It is easy for middle-class persons in comfortable circumstances call for a boycott without much thought of the people who will suffer the most-the people they claim to be supporting.

    Sir Elton John should have canceled his appearance completely in light of the draconian anti-Latino/-Latina law there.
