    That is a great set list RS...you notice how by far the majority of songs are from his early years, when he was at his best.:grinthumb

    Wow! What a set list!!! I'm exhausted just looking at it. It's great to see all of those early songs & I'm really happy to see "Empty Garden" from the 80's. I always liked that tune but it just seems to have faded away over the years

    Yes I do own it on Blu Ray and it is a great show. The definitive Elton John video IMO. Both video and audio are excellent.

    Great set list from a great performer, sorry that I cannot see him (or have a beer with him) when he plays Chesterfield in June this year, although I respect him and like his music I am off to see some metal bands at Donnington, this one is a great song.......

    Elton says he only plays Empty Garden on certain occasions since it's such a sad song. It was written about John Lennon.
