TEMECULA –Tributes to Elton John and Bruno Mars will perform Friday, Feb. 28, and Sunday, March 1, respectively at the Old Town Temecula Theater, 42051 Main Street, in Temecula. Tickets are now available online for $25 to $35, and tickets may be discounted $5 for bundling both two shows. Senior, student and military discounts are available.

More than just a tribute show, “Elton: The Early Years,” Friday, Feb. 28, at 8 p.m., is a pitch-perfect look at the life of a musical legend. Kenny Metcalf stars as Elton in this showcase, which has appeared on the AXS show “The World’s Greatest Tribute Bands.” The electric concert at the Old Town Temecula Community Theater features a technically accurate Vegas-style production with the wildly popular music, costumes and antics of one of music’s most flamboyant personalities.

Nobody gets a party going like Bruno Mars. With infectiously funky hits like “That’s What I Like,” “Locked Out of Heaven” and the smash “Uptown Funk,” Mars has conquered record charts and dance floors around the world. Now audiences can experience all the fun and stylish rhythm and blues swagger of the superstar live in concert when tribute band 24K Magic performs at Old Town Temecula Community Theater, Sunday, March 1, at 7 p.m. These consummate entertainers reproduce the complex sound and choreography of the original tunes with plenty of charm, style and spot-on musicianship to spare.

Tickets for both shows may be purchased online at www.temeculatheater.org, by calling (866) 653-8696 or at the theater box office. Both shows are appropriate for all ages.
