Despite some worries (by the public, as well as your friends here at the Daily Mail), this morning’s announcement that Elton John will play the Charleston Civic Center is not an April Fool’s Day joke.

In case you missed that…Elton John is coming to the Civic Center on June 11.
Tickets go on sale April 11 at the Civic Center box office, www.livenation.com, all Ticketmaster locations or 1-800-745-3000. Prices are $99, $79 and $29. Limit eight tickets per customer.
