Legendary piano popster Elton John brings his "Greatest Hits Live" concert to our area this weekend. The concert boasts number one chart hits and classic album tracks from throughout John's five-decade pop career. We're keeping our fingers crossed to hear some real treasures, like the soaring "I've Seen That Movie Too" or the playful, energetic "Hercules," or the stunning "High Flying Bird." Still, "Your Song," "Rocket Man," "Crocodile Rock," and "Bennie and the Jets" are nothing to sneeze at. So long as he doesn't do the gawdawful "Philadelphia Freedom," the insipid "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" or anything from Leather Jackets), we'll be happy. His band includes guitarist Davey Johnstone and Nigel Olsson, who were with John during his glory days in the '70s. Saturday, March 26, at 8 p.m. 1st Mariner Arena, 201 West Baltimore St., Baltimore. Tickets are $27 to $147, but very few seats remain. Call 410-727-7811 or visit baltimorearena.com.

Here's a look at John's gayest video ever.
