Just a man, a piano and a song. And, some greatness. Elton John will perform on June 4 in Fayetteville as part of the Walmart Shareholders’ events.

Walmart has confirmed what several associates told me about the music schedule for the Walmart Shareholders’ meeting week, which begins June 4 and culminates with the actual shareholders’ meeting on June 7.

Elton John and Ed Sheeran perform on June 4 and Luke Bryan and an unnamed guest perform on June 5.

Both shows will take place in Bud Walton Arena and were labeled as “associate concerts” by Walmart spokesperson Dianna Gee.

Equal amounts of tickets will be made available through Ticketmaster.com at 6 a.m., noon and 6 p.m. May 15. Walmart and Sam’s Club employees will be able to claim two tickets for each show. The public will have access to tickets on May 30 if any remain.

The performers and host for the Shareholders’ meeting on June 7 are often tightly held secrets. That event is closed to the general public.

    I’m sorry to hear that, Sherry. The codes you had didn’t work, or tickets were already claimed?

    I heard from several Walmart employees who said they were successful this morning.

    How does the public go about getting tickets? I know they are being released today but I have no idea how to get them.

    I’m a shareholder can I still get in to see Elton John tomorrow night?
