Your $1,000 Chance To See Elton John Perform For The Prop 8 Crowd Is About To Disappear

Headlining Wednesday’s fundraising event for American Foundation for Equal Rights, Elton John has agreed to perform a 90-minute set at the Beverly Hills estate of billionaire Ron Burkle (even if the press release did call him “Rob Burkle”). And so far it’s on track to raise the expected $2 million to pay Ted Olson and David Boies’ legal bills. As of yesterday, the tickets — which start at $1,000 per person and go way up from there — were “almost sold out.” (Of course saying tickets are almost sold out and you need to GET YOURS NOW!! is the oldest trick in a promoter’s book.) Rich gays like David Geffen and Ken Mehlman will be there, as will Barbra Streisand. But no blowies or handies in Ron’s bathroom, okay? That’s just rude.
