ELTON HAS THE KEYS TO OUR HEARTS .

To address the complaints . Please don't go back to when you saw him at the Dodgers Stadium . Also, if you paid a lot for a ticket , don't blame Elton for your mistake . Elton made every effort to make sure you that you had the chance to buy a ticket at cost. Little FYI, what just a little bit before the show , and you might be able to get a ticket at a much better price . I myself made sure my extra tickets were sold at a reasonable price. Also, don't complain that Elton didn't hit the high notes like he used too. All that said, here's what I heard . Bits of Jelly Roll Norton. Some Jerry Lee Lewis . A bad ass boogie woogie bounce with Elton's voice knocking those songs down with punch and growl, like in Take Me To The Pilot. What a jam session. Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me, and Someone Saved My Life tonight had a very nice spacious sound. I also enjoyed the light show. Rocket Man was very well done. The people around me also enjoyed the show. ELTON BRINGS OUT THE GOOD IN PEOPLE

LOVE ELTON JOHN

Elton John is an amazing piano player, entertainer, having produced music that will last through eternity. But the sound and acoustics at the BOK in Tulsa, OK, was extremely disappointing. EJ’s voice was distorted and sound so loud you could barely hear it, make out the lyrics. At $300/ticket that was a big bummer. I saw Elton John in Oklahoma City in 2005 - and the sound was amazing, like listening to a CD. BOK - you have a lot of work to do.

GREAT CONCERT EXCEPT A GUY IN FRONT OF ME STOOD UP THE WHOLE TIME

The concert was great. Elton is great. His voice is still fabulous. However a guy stood up in front of me the whole time. No one else around us was standing. It was so very rude. Even when politely asked to sit down, he would not. He was also quite drunk.

STILL STANDING BUT A LITTLE TIRED

Had great floor seats last night at Barkley Center. Played same set as MSG so we knew which songs were coming up. When he spoke he sounded a bit hoarse. Probably overdid it at the garden the night before. Barkley audience is a bit more subdued than the garden audience and those not on the floor sat in their seats the entire time. We were dancing to most of the songs on the floor and had a great time. However, unlike BIlly Joel who plays all his hits for his fans to sing to,, Elton played half major hits and some songs even us fans could have done without. His band is great! Rat and Nigel are fantastic. Despite his voice failing a bit,,, his piano playing ability is better than ever. What a gifted pianist. I would have liked more top 10 hits and less of the unknown songs,, but he played for 2 1/2 hours non stop and was most enjoyable.

DISAPPOINTING

About what I expected for a 72-year-old singer. He still has great stage presence, but the voice falters. Still a wonderful pianist and his band was fabulous. The visuals were terrible, disjointed and bizarre. I’m sure the Elton John groupies loved it, but to normal people the visuals and lighting were distracting and annoying. The sound was way too loud; we were vibrating, pure noise pollution. The T-Mobile arena sucked. We paid big bucks for floor seating and couldn’t even see Elton John. They had him buried on the far-left side of the stage, lower than some of the the band members. Never again will I go to this venue.

ELTON JOHN CINCINNATI 2-27-19

Kind of depressing. I saw him at Dodger Stadium at his peak. He seemed to have a tough time walking and he kept spitting inbetween tunes. Sound was awful, whoever did the mixing should be hung. He had trouble hitting the high notes. We left after Daniel.

ELTON JOHN

The set choice was great and he is still a great performer. Whoever was behind the camera running the production end needs to be replaced. At one point the camera was shaking and the monitors were showing images of the floor. The audience in my section were chanting worst cameraman ever. I actually got up and complained. The guy I spoke to said that Elton did not want any cameras on him for this concert. I am sure, I was not the only one to complain because 10 minutes later the camera production improved by 100%. But to be honest their direction in the beginning ruined the concert and even with the course correction it was too late to get me back into the excitement of the concert.
