Lee and I went to the Elton John Farewell concert last night.
What a fabulous evening! Elton is still able to put on an amazing performance with a fantastic experienced team of old rockers!
The mixing and quality of the sound was as good as I have ever heard it. As someone who suffers from Tinitus I find that badly mixed performances just become noise to me and I end up leaving, but the sound last night was incredible.
Couple the above to a sensational stage set up and visuals and the usual flamboyant Elton John choreography then you really do have a show.
What a way to finish a career and to be remembered as a rock star who was great till the final performance and not to be remembered as a has been.
They played for 3 hours straight and finished off with Yellow Brick road.
The lead guitarist was relatively new to the band and came recommended as an acoustic guitarist and had only recently picked up an electric guitar, but man oh man did he work those strings!
The drummers and the rest of the band were all at the top of their games was well.
I would rate that concert as up there with the top 4 I have ever seen, together with Michael Jackson, The Eagles and Adele.
Nice work Elton and band…a real pleasure to watch.
