Elton and buddy Rod Stewart attend Agassi charity event

Sunday 29 September 2002 @ 10:32 - GMT

Andre Agassi's seventh Grand Slam for Children concert included appearances from "Sharon and Phyllis", the nicknames Elton (Sharon) and Rod Stewart (Phyllis) share.

The Agassi event at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on September 28, 2002, benefited the tennis star's charitable foundation, which helps at-risk children in Las Vegas. The concerts have raised more than $18 million in recent years.

As well as Elton, actor Robin Williams, Dennis Miller, Latino guitarist Carlos Santana, Martina McBride and Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds were scheduled to perform.
