STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) -

Elton John proclaims that "Saturday night's all right for fighting" in one of his classic songs. This Saturday night, some of his music will be more than "all right" to raise money for a worthy cause.

"Rocket Man - Elton John" is a tribute concert to benefit the Alzheimer's Association in Statesboro. The show starts at 7:30 in the Georgia Southern University Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased by calling 912.478.7999 or at www.georgiasouthern.edu/pac

The show marks the second year in a row the association has brought the production to Statesboro.

"They only perform this show a couple of times a year," said association member Chandler Dennard. "I've seen the real Elton John in concert before and, to hear these guys, you'd think you're seeing him."

In addition to the concert, the Alzheimer's Association has teamed with Loco's Grill and Pub for an after-concert party from 10 p.m. to midnight with celebrity waiters and bartenders with proceeds going to the association.
