He's known as 'The Rocket Man' and 'Mr. Fantastic,' but to central Georgia Wednesday night, he was the main attraction.

A large crowd filled the seats at the Centreplex to enjoy an evening with Sir Elton John.

"I'm in the tenth row and this is the closest I'll ever be to seeing Elton John," says Patti Rushin from Milledgeville. "I grew up with him, because I was 18 when he first came on the scene. So, we've grown up together, grown old together, and he's still hot."

Some fans came out, not just to hear their favorite songs, but to admire the man behind the rose-colored glasses.

"He's outspoken, and he won't stop stating his opinions. He's one of the first people that came out being openly gay, which is awesome," says Sandy Hauenstein from Macon.

Sir Elton John canceled last Friday's show in Birmingham, Alabama for medical reasons, but thousands of fans were glad to see him back in full swing for his peach state performance.
