The Bitch Is Back 

Like any true diva, the older Sir Elton John gets, the more he shows off his sassy side. Whether he's hurling insults at the paparazzi or badmouthing Madonna, one thing is certain -- the bitch is back.

But, hopefully, after his November 4th show at the FedExForum, we'll all be a little more inclined to associate John with hit-making ballads and melodic piano-playing. He's stopping in Memphis on his Peachtree Road tour in support of his latest album by the same name. Since it isn't due out until November 9th, the show will give locals a sneak preview of Captain Fantastic's latest body of work.

With songs written by John's longtime lyricist Bernie Taupin, Peachtree Road is rumored to be a country-rock album reminiscent of 1971's Tumbleweed Connection. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, John attributes this to "the air we're breathing in Atlanta," where he has a home.

Of course, he'll likely play some old standards as well. With 43 albums recorded over the past 34 years, he's got quite the bank to draw from. Besides, the night wouldn't be complete without "Honky Cat."

Elton John, 8 p.m. Friday, November 4th, at FedExForum,

200 S. Third St. (tickets, 525-1515), $35-$85.
