    Elton John is bringing his Greatest Hits Live tour to Louisville's KFC Yum! Center Friday night. The show will begin promptly at 8 p.m. (so all of the economic advantages for local businesses of having a taxpayer-subsidized downtown arena won't be realized until after the show).

    Tickets are still available through Ticketmaster's website or at 800-745-3000 ($19.50, $49 and $139.50).

    Spoiler alert: After the video is the 25-song setlist from John's April 9 performance at Boise, Idaho (it looks like a pretty killer show).

    Spoiler alert 2: The Swedish Chef is not expect to be in attendance at the KFC Yum! Center Friday night.
