    It was a great show.

    Davey Johnstone was great, too. Had a couple LP's. One looked like a 90's Classic and the other was a Custom.

    Eltons voice waa strong and his piano playing was excellent.

    All round great show.

    Always wanted to see him. Wore out my "Live In Australia" CD. Really liked that one. :)

    Very cool, I've never seen him live. I saw a performance by Sir Elton on TV not too many years ago, I think at a big festival. Just him and the biggest grand piano I've ever seen, no band. He KILLED! Voice was great, and the piano sounded otherworldly. Elton rocks.

    Wish I was there!

    Big fan of Elton and his band. Nigel and Davey are still with him. Unfortunately, they lost Bob to Cancer years ago.

    Been a fan since "Your Song" came out and still have never seen them live. Davey J is one of those guitarists that I'd love to spend an afternoon going over how he played so many great songs!

    Glad you got to see them! Good choice!

    Are you "gay", yet?

    There was a "study" done a few years ago, that stated that kids who grow up listening to Elton John (or any other gay artists/musicians, for that matter) turn out gay. Glad I didn't get that memo.

    Frickin' love Elton John!
