This British pop icon continues to tour the world with his satchel of pop music melodies. (He says this is his last one) It was in 1975 when Elton John, who is 71-years old now appeared on America's popular R&B dance and music program Soul Train, where he sang Bennie and the Jets that put this singer/songwriter on the map in the black communities. This also some music critics say gave him an entree into the pop Billboard charts. The recording of Bennie and the Jets was also playing on R&B radio stations. It went to #15 on the Billboard Soul Singles chart. Still a feat for an artist with no previous hits with that audience. It is reported John set out to have an R&B hit and he did. His fellow Brit David Bowie was the next pop/rock act to appear on the popular inner city Soul Train.

Budweiser Beermaster Tour
Budweiser Brewery Experience
The Houston brewery offers an immersive experience, perfect for visitors of all ages. From the advanced brewing technology to the history displays, you will gain a better understanding of the historical significance of one of America’s oldest brewers.
Opened in 1966, the Houston Brewery has quickly become one of our “greenest” breweries. The brewery gets some of its energy from landfill gas that is piped in six miles from the nearby McCarty Landfill. On average, the brewery sources approximately 30 percent of its energy needs from alternative energy. The brewery’s energy efficiency and conservation efforts also include an on-site bio-energy recovery system (BERS), where brewery wastewater can be recycled adding to our water conservation efforts.
