Excerpts from the story:
“Sir Elton John has been sharing his musical talents with the world since the 1960s and the mega star is leaving a few sprinkles of magic along the way as he performs his last world tour, ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road.’
“Ahead of his final North American show, the Rocket Man collaborated with vegan chain Monty’s Good Burger on a limited-edition meal that features a colorful assortment of items that speak to John’s personal style. The Monty’s Loves Elton vegan meal consists of a single cheeseburger, an order of 50/50 fries and tots, Baby Blue Ranch Dipping Sauce, Tiny Dancer Pink Lemonade with sprinkles, and a mini Rainbow Rock Sugar Cookie.
“The collaboration also features an out-of-this-world milkshake to celebrate John’s eclectic and influential style. The Glitter Glasses Shake features an English toffee milkshake made from vanilla Oatly soft serve that comes topped with edible glitter.
“John has a special place for Los Angeles in his heart as it is the first place he performed in the United States when he rocked West Hollywood nightclub The Troubadour in 1970. He first performed at the Dodger’s Stadium during two sold-out shows in 1975 and will return there on November 17, 19, and 20 to close out the North American leg of his final tour. John chose Los Angeles for his final North American tour date to commemorate that show but also because the city itself served as inspiration for him and longtime collaborator Bernie Taupin to create the music,
“To commemorate his last days in Los Angeles, John created a scavenger hunt around the city that directs fans to special places, including The Troubadour, Book Soup Bookstore, Amoeba Music, and Monty’s Good Burger where his vegan collaboration can be found.” (Anna Starostinetskaya, vegnews.com)
