Wow never thought i'd see this awesome televised concert again. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4iYXTyfDsp8http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6QdeuIJe-0o
The first part of the concert features the EJ band, then d the second video is part 2 of the concert (with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra).
With over three hours of music, showmanship, excellent musical performances, and Elton having a blast, this concert ranks highly among Elton John fans, and is generally considered one of Elton's best concerts and career highlight. Back then it was a gamble to use a Symphony Orchestra as well as Elton's move to do lesser known songs such as "Have Mercy on The Criminal" and "Carla Etude" . Also he was struggling with his throat which needed an operation the following year and emotionally his wife had left him.
