Expect a bustling Youngstown March 22 when Elton, ZZ Top perform


March 22 is shaping up to be the busiest Tuesday night in downtown Youngstown in many years.

That’s because two major concerts by classic-rock giants are set for that night – Elton John at Covelli Centre and ZZ Top at Stambaugh Auditorium.

The bars and restaurants in the downtown area always hum with activity before a big concert at either venue, and will be busier than most because of Elton John’s concert, which is already a virtual sellout of 7,000 seats.

Tickets behind the stage are being sold for the show, adding more than 1,000 seats to the usual concert capacity.

Tickets go on sale Friday for ZZ Top at Stambaugh, which holds about 2,500. Prices range from $39 to $99 (plus applicable fees).
