Elton John To Auction Tickets Online

Elton John, Trance Control, Hole, Public Enemy, Poor Righteous Teachers, Christina Aguilera, Creed, Methods of Mayhem, Foo Fighters ...

Prime seats for upcoming concerts by pop-rocker Elton John will

be auctioned online, with the proceeds going to the AIDS charity he founded,

according to a press statement from Tickets.com, which will host the

auctions. John appeared at a New York press conference Wednesday (Dec. 8)

to discuss the plan. Tickets.com recently made a deal to host similar

charity auctions for the Firm, the management company that handles such

acts as the Backstreet Boys and Limp Bizkit. The company

also recently agreed to arrange ticket distribution for Atlas/Third Rail

Entertainment, which handles Alanis Morissette.
