Santa Fe Salutes: Elton John Sponsored by Thornburg Investment Management

Santa Fe Summer Scene. Join your Santa Fe neighbors on the Railyard Plaza beside the landmark Water Tower for great FREE concerts all summer long.

Lensic 360 will present the 2023 annual Santa Fe Salutes show under the landmark Water Tower on the Railyard as we salute Sir Reginald Kenneth Dwight, otherwise known as the legendary…Elton John!

 Since 2016 this event has been a local favorite, showcasing the music of Prince, Tom Petty, Aretha Franklin, and many others. In recent years, the focus has turned to honoring musicians who are still with us and in that spirit, Santa Fe Salutes will stage a live tribute show to Elton John’s music as he wraps up his final tour. This will be an evening for us all to enjoy our city’s finest live performers, singers, bands, entertainers, and of course, piano players, under the summer sky in the Railyard Plaza.

This three-hour musical salute is free, all-ages, and in partnership with the Santa Fe Reporter’s annual Best of Santa Fe party-so make sure you put this can’t-miss date on your calendar.

-Feel free to bring chairs to the concert.

-Food and drink are available inside Second Street Brewery, Violet Crown Cinema, As Above & So Below & La Lecharia for your Ice Cream needs plus food trucks will be available.

-Bring your water bottle— water filling stations available.
