Gainan’s, Billings’ Leading Floral Shop, Fills Special Order for Sir Elton John
Sir Elton John will be enveloped an array of perfectly designed red and white roses -- and resting on a specially-sized couch during his stop in Billings on Wednesday.
Gainan's confirmed Tuesday that it has been selected to fulfill the floral order, which includes a vase, 2 feet to 3 feet tall, filled with fresh-colored flowers. The bouquet should be free of chrysanthemums, daisies and carnations, according to the order.
The arrangements must be pave-style with clear glass stones and no leaves or greens.
A local, unidentified designer is working with Sir Elton John's designer so ensure the singer is equipped with a special-sized couch. The couch must be long enough that neither his head nor his feet tough the armrests, according to a MetraPark spokesman.
"It's a very extensive amount of stuff he wants," the spokesman said. "And, what Sir Elton wants, Sir Elton gets."
The superstar has also ordered 150 pounds of dry ice for the smoke during his performance.
A limited number of great seats have been released adjacent to the stage for the 8 p.m. Elton John concert at Rimrock Auto Arena at MetraPark. Tickets at all price levels are now available.
The concert features two-and-a-half hours of Elton’s greatest hits plus deep album tracks. Concert-goers will be able to journey through Elton’s career as Elton John and his band—with no opening act—say farewell to Billings as part of “The Final Curtain” tour. After more than 4,000 concerts and a career spanning more than 50 years, Elton is now slowly bringing the curtain down.
The show will feature iconic hits and classic album tracks from Elton’s incredible five-decade career, including a selection of songs from his acclaimed re-mastered album, “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road,” which recently celebrated its 40th anniversary.
