ELTON JOHN -- 50 YEARS ON, AND HE'S STILL GOT IT.

Having been tio a number of his concerts since 1978, the Goodbye Yellow Brick Road tour is most certainly his most elaborate production ever. The stage, the videos, the special effects, and the classic tunes made for a wonderfully nostalgic, sentimental night. As always, watching thousands of fans singing along, and dancing in the isles, reminded me of my youth, when the old songs were 'new;. After all these years, he's still got it, Elton was, is, and will always be a great talent. As he exists the stage, he will be missed,

TOP NOTCH ENTERTAINER!

Elton John can still put on a top quality performance like no other! He has always entertained his captive audiences with non- stop entertainment. You can tell he loves what he does because he takes no breaks for almost 3 hours! Still doing a magnificently stellar job at entertaining! He is still a top notch performer that doesn’t disappoint! A got to see performance!! Buy tickets now before they sell out! Last chance to see a great entertainer!

ELTON JOHN AT LITTLE CEASARS ARENA IN DETROIT

The show was absolutely fantastic! Possibly the most memorable concert I have ever been to. sir Elton and his awesome band - also among the best, long- time rockers sounded like a well- oiled group of professional musicians... every instrument was crisp and strong. You could tell how proud they all were to be setting out on this world tour, bringing us Hisitory. Elton’s piano sounded so powerful... . He played for over 2 1/2 hours and spoke eloquently to the audience... humbly thanking all for their support over the last half century. If you missed it, travel to another state, or country to see him.. You will not regret it! Priceless!

Time traveling with Elton and original band. Almost three hours without a break. One of the best shows ever. Gracious and grateful Elton at his best. So sad it the last tour. And thanks to Pechanga staff who were friendly and managed the crowds oh so wel. Don’t Miss this show.

FAREWELL TOUR FOR ELTON JOHN

We saw the show last night and were completely mesmerized by Elton John and the musicians/the band. He performed for almost 3 hours and he took only a 5 minute break to change his outfit. The visual was stimulating & well done. Elton John was so happy to be performing & he demonstrated it over & over. The time went be so quickly while we were reminiscing with Elton John and the band. He has brought together a group of musicians who were phenomenal! We will never forget this experience!

ELTON CAN STILL DELIVER THE GOODS

Best concert I’ve ever been to. Haven’t seen him in over 40 years. He still sings and plays with the energy and enthusiasm of someone just starting out. He is a true superstar and has the ability to reach everyone in the audience and lift them up regardless of where they are sitting and how large the arena is.

5.0 star rating Bill Howerton from Denver, Colorado

WHAT AN AMAZING CONCERT!

Elton John took the stage at the Pepsi Center about 8:00 PM on Thursday the 7th, and he did not relinquish one inch of that stage until he had thoroughly dominated each and every one of the 20,000+ audience members. He may not be able to do the on-stage gymnastics of his earlier years, but his piano playing is still second to none. And he made it look so effortless. The man was having the time of his life on that stage, and we were having the time of our lives watching him. I'm already scouring the tour schedule to see if we might be able to see him again before he calls it quits.

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.

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.

FANTASTIC!

THERE ARE NO WORDS TO DESCRIBE THE PERFORMANCE OF ELTON JOHN AND THE BAND... HE WAS SO GREAT ..DID NOT STP PREFORMING FOR 3 HRS STRAIGHT..WHAT A TREAT , WHAT A PERFORMER !...HE WILL BE MISSED SO SO MUCH... THANKS KIDS!!!

DON'T SHOOT THE PIANO MAN

Elton still has got it! He puts on an amazing show and he played songs from across his 50 years in the music industry. It was an eclectic set that had MSG dancing and singing along. His band should also be given praise as they were amazing too!

ELTON JOHN BOMBS

The show was a great big disappointment. The sound was so bad the words were indistinguishable and garbled. The lighting was nothing special, there was no choreography, the set never changed except to float some "clouds" on stage and move the piano with Elton playing around a little bit. Stay home and listed to him on headphones... don't waste your money!

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.

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.

DONT MISS IT!

I mean, he OPENED with Benny and the Jets! Wow, I was amazed, have been getting up each morning since with his music in my head! Maybe sound critics sat in a weak spot in the Garden, but we were side view seats and still thrilled to hear him!! Think about the 70s and 80s, we didnt have lyrics websites, lol, I'm sure I was screaming wacky words to his songs at the concert! But the fact is, if you want to see a real iconic Man and his fabulous band (some of whom came back to play this farewell tour) and hear him sing and play this memorable music LIVE , please dont miss this tour! Thanks Elton (and Bernie for these wonderful lyrics), glad you are doing this, enjoy retirement in any form, after FIFTY years of a career making us feel your songs!

ELTON JON BARCLAYS

Unbelievable! I’ve seen Elton years ago, he is the master of the keyboards! The jamming session for 7 minutes with his band is a moment in life you will never forget! Thank you Elton for a phenomenal night❤️

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.

SURPRISINGLY BAD

I was very excited to see Elton last night in Raleigh. This would make my third time seeing him since I first saw him in California as a young teenager when he was on his epic Goodbye Yellow Brick Road tour in 1973. That show literally blew my mind. Last night's was a nightmare. He led off with "Bennie and the Jets". Obviously, great tune. But the sound was HORRIBLE. Loud to the point of painful distortion. And the mix was just as bad. Rhythm section loud to the point where you couldn't hear the vocals. "OK", I thought; first song, maybe somebody screwed up the sound check and things will get straightened around. Nope. Next 2 tunes just as bad. My ears literally began to hurt. My wife and I had floor seats and everyone stood up. What's the point of floor seats if every idiot is going to disregard everyone else behind them and stand up waving their recording cell phones in the air? We left while Elton was introducing "Border Song". Memories are best when you don't try to relive them.

RIDICULOUS!

It was so bad that we left one hour into the show. The sound was ridiculous, it was so loud that it reverberated in the entire Amway Center. The movie on the screen behind him was ridiculous and poorly thought out. In the first few songs it was a slideshow of disjointed pictures which had no meaning at all. During one song they would flash the brightest light into your eyes for the entire song. It was really stupid. I was so shocked at how bad the entire production was, what a waste of an evening. What a complete and total wasre of time and an utter disappointment!.

HORRIBLE SOUND QUALITY

Visually excellent, sound quality was horrible and it never improved. It was over compressed and overall just a mash up of instruments. You almost could not hear Elton sing. An excessive Bass boast that was almost painful on some notes. Whoever did the arena analysis failed badly. Reflection problems throughout the venue. It is a real shame that you pay nearly $700 for a concert you were unable to enjoy.
