My wife is an Elton fan and had hoped to see someone who could hit the higher notes and perform like Elton John could before she was born. On stage certainly was a more youthful and spry Elton. It started of moderately rocking building some steam. My wife knows the lyrics and was enthralled from the very beginning. Me I was a little slow to warm up. He did a good job(although Tiny Dancer didn't go so hot) working it for the first half promising a quick break.
When he came back he was on fire(not literally). He picked up the tempo and really got the crowd into it for the last 45 minutes. People were dancing and clapping as he tore into Crocodile rock, Saturday nights alright for fighting. There was a huge collective breath when he ended on a high note and was brought back for an encore of I guess that's why they call it the blues.
I had a good time. The Elton fan had a great time and that's what mattered the most. Big props to Almost Elton John.
