Pianist Jim Witter brings his “Piano Men” tribute to Billy Joel and Elton John back to Arkansas this week with a performance at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Arkansas State University’s Fowler Center, 201 Olympic Drive, Jonesboro. The first half of Witter’s program focuses on Joel hits, including “Movin’ Out,” “My Life,” “Just the Way You Are” and “Only the Good Die Young” ; the second half concentrates primarily on John, including “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me,” “Candle in the Wind” and “Philadelphia Freedom,” plus a selection of TV theme songs from the ’70s (Witter and the band will take requests ).
