Benny and the Jets topped the charts in 1974 but it’s still one of Elton John’s most popular songs. And tonight, for the first time ever, you might be able to hear him play it in Vermont. Elton John is set to perform before a sold out crowd at the Champlain Valley Expo this evening. The other day VPR’s Sarah Ashworth met one fan who’s been waiting a long time for this night at the Park Café in St. Albans.
