Elton played for almost 3hrs straight and was
incredible. Ended the shows encore with
Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.
Debbie Bryant from Warwick,RI.

by his photospheres our seats were awesome . when we
got out of the concert we even found a great place with
good food and a Elton tribute right near the Garden

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!
Al silverman from New York, New York
I love to dance. You have to be on the floor. Music
was great. Whole performance outstanding. Elton
still has it. Lots of great rock and roll.
Thomas Lafond from Boston, Massachusetts
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,
Your NumberoneFan from Los Angeles, California
AMAZING SONG SELECTION
Started with a bang Benny and the Jetts!!! the night continued nonstop singing swaying and dancing. THe entire place was singing along.
L a starr from San Diego, California
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.
Kathryn Baldwin from Los Angeles, California
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!
CB from Los Angeles, California
LOVES WHAT HE DOES AND IT SHOWS
Elton and his band we FANTASTIC - classic rock at it's best and I'm crying with love! Great Show!
Carol from Los Angeles, California
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.
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.
BONNIE SALNER from New Jersey
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!!!
Geri Carroll from East Northport, New York
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!
Sandi from New York, New York
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!
Debbie from New York, New York
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❤️
Teena from New York, New York
Yes I’m baysed but I have NEVER seen Sir E perform and found it nothyng less than amazyng. The fyrst tyme I saw hym was 1976 and the last was thys past March. AMAZYNG!!!
Teena (wyth 2 e’s) from Queens, New York
I say bytter sweet because it was most lykley the last tyme I wyll see hym lyve. I was fortunate enough to see hym at both NYC venues and I’ve been on cloud 9 . Haveyng been text dumped a few weeks earlyer seetng Elton put the smyle baque on my face. I’ve been a fan for 49 years and he is never less than amazyng!
Wanda Kelly from Crestview, Florida
ELTON JOHN IS THE ULTIMATE PERFORMER!
I attended this concert last year in December in New Orleans. He was freaking awesome! I've seen him numerous times, but it seems like he was more on fire for this performance than he has been for others, and that's saying something! He played a good variety of his music from the old to the newer songs. If you get a chance to go, you should! It's worth every penny!
Nicky from Las Vegas, Nevada
ELTON JOHN, LAS VEGAS 2019
What an amazing show! His voice, though much deeper and that signature twang long gone since the surgery, is still so beautiful and tireless. Even without the agility of the incredible youthful superstar you once had you still capture and mesmerize us all! You always have been and obviously always will be the best! I have seen him for the 19th time since the mid 70s and have been to many other concerts and,by far, he is the most talented, dedicated performer of our generation. I took my 3 grown children to witness what I've been talking about for years and they agreed they now understand. All good things must come to an end though and eventhough I will miss Elton so much I wish him a very happy life with his young family and a well-deserved retirement from the road. Thanks for all the lovely memories and how your music has always lifted me and so many others up when we needed it. I know u have many projects in progress so this is not the last we will see of u but hope to see u around for the occasional concert. Luv u dearly, Elton!
Pamela Telford from Las Vegas, Nevada
It was out of this world to see him and his band sing the great songs that have stood the test of time . The whole t mobile arena was bouncing with the electric atmosphere. Thank you Sir Elton 😍😍😍
Malee Shay from Seattle, Washington
ELTON JOHN FABULOUS AT TACOMA DOME 9/17
I have been lucky enough to see Elton John 3 times - the last time being this Tuesday. I am an avid concert goer ...one may say a "concert snob" --- Elton NEVER disappoints and it was a concert of a lifetime. We Love You Elton John you...have changed the world.
Foodie on the run from Vancouver, British Columbia
THREE HRS OF SOLID ENTERTAINMENT
Started on time ,thank you ! Played for three hrs! He still has it .
Mike Franklin from Vancouver, British Columbia
THE GREATEST ENTERTAINER
I have grown up on a musical diet that has been extremely broad but a staple at the heart of all my years has been Elton John and the incredible lyrics to music produced in two rooms with Bernie Taupin. The show was breathtakingly good, the production excellent, the band members are old friends. To take to the stage for three hours and deliver that quality from start to finish is nothing short of amazing for a man in his 70's. To know where the high notes used to be and leave that to the backing singers is wise and took little away from the end product. Levon and Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding will last long in the memory but stand only just above the whole set of other hits. Worth every cent at the box office and an ice hockey venue high sides and close the perfect place to watch.
Mike L from Winnipeg, Manitoba
MORE THAN JUST STANDING!
Anyone who gives EJ’s performance less than 5/5 because of a poor venue they were in or because some audience member blocked their view needs to get their head checked! This man, his career, and the 50 years of songs he gave the world is nothing short of incredible. The set, the sound, the song selection and the singer were all 5+! So sad I’ll never get to see this fabulous artist in-concert again! Long live EJ!
Tootie Stewart from Nashville, Tennessee
THROUGH THE YEARS- MOVING PERFORMANCE
First time to see EJ since he played Martin, TN in 1974-That’s right! UT-Martin! Electric then; Electric & moving last night.
Missed Bennie & The Jets, but that was my mistake. Acoustics, production, set list, volume were glorious.
To some, a video (or two) may have been a touch over the top, but it’s Elton John, people!!
His talk of addiction, and endorsing that we ask for help, was so thoughtful. Same goes for his AIDS comments.
Levon was a full blown jam.
Take Me To The Pilot-Southern Boogie-Woogie with soulful flair.
Lots of onions being chopped in The Tire Barn last night
Was it expensive? A bargain at twice the price.
I can say I just witnessed the best concert I’ve ever seen, and it was driven by a 72 year old Brit and 3 chaps that were with him 45 years ago. How can that be??
Jan Colijn from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
The gig in Philadelphia was amazing. The set list was delicately put together with a quiet duo of EJ and Ray Cooper in the middle. The band, according to Elton, was the best he has ever had and there was no quibbling with that. His banter was as personal and moving as ever so, even if you have to refinance your mortgage, do not miss this amazing tour.
Panagiotaropoulos from Cleveland, Ohio
STILL GOT IT
I am not a big fan of his music but my wife is. Always a little apprehensive when dealing with a rocker in my age group: Bob Dylan and Neil Young have aged well, Paul Simon not. Sir Elton clearly has mobility issues walking but his fingers hit the notes perfectly. Around the middle of his almost three hour concert when the band went into an extended instrumental play, time stopped. He definitely exits the stage while he is still in great shape. The sound in the Cleveland arena was without distortion. I found many of the visuals questionable to stupid. During the opening Benny and the Jets we are treated to beach pictures of fat working class people. Is that supposed to make us feel superior? Much better when we were seeing a compendium of his earlier career or his AIDS advocacy.
Jbs1 from Cleveland, Ohio
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
Barbara from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
UNBELIEVABLE POWERFUL PERFORMANCE
By far the best concert I have ever attended in my 70 years. and I have attended a few. lol. He was powerful. Not one moment of disappointment. Incredible from the moment he stepped on the stage. And his musicians have got to be the best ever@!
Laurie from Kansas City, Missouri
ELTON IS STILL STANDING AFTER ALL THESE YEARS.
Great concert! Played all the familiar hits and the acoustics were fantastic. Some of the videos were a bit different but music was awesome. He is still an awesome, energetic performer. He was my first concert in 75 and I was glad to be a part of his last concert.
Robin from Chicago, Illinois
ELTON IN CHICAGO
Wanted to see him for 40 yrs!! It was incredible! My favorite singer/songwriter of all. Loved every second and would love to go to another before this tour is over.
Mark Cataldo from Holmdel, New Jersey
ELTON DELIVERS ONE OF HIS BEST MSG PERFORMANCES
I have seen Elton almost 40 times in my lifetime. Last night's show was delivered with high energy and sentiment. Elton became emotional when sharing with the crowd his favorite memories of performing in his favorite venue in the world and his profound thanks and love for his adoring fans. 2 1/2 hours of great musicianship and great vocals. The stage , lighting and sound were amazing. A trip down Memory lane ? Yes ,but still a very relevant artist for today. A must see!
Donna Westwood from New York, New York
Saw Elton at MSG on Tuesday, he was simply brilliant. His voice is still so strong, the whole band were fantastic playing for 2.5 hours. I was on the ground level and the sound was awesome. Elton was very moved taking about his band and those dear to him. Would go again in a heartbeat if I could afford it. Highly recommended x
Kappi from Brooklyn,New York
ELTON ROCKED THE HOUSE.
Elton John is still standing and blew the roof off of the Barclays Center. Never saw him but wow did I miss something. He’s blues,classical, rock, pop and some Honky Tonk and everything was spot on. He and his band where so comfortable with each other and didn’t miss a beat.There will never be a musician that has entertained the way he does. Enjoy the rest of your tour and your life at the end of the Yellow Brick Road. Cheers.
. Just saw him at the Barclays center on Wednesday from New York, New York
I’ve been to more Elton John concerts than I can count and I have always been absolutely amazed at his talent. Somehow it’s nearly impossible to stay seated at any one of these concerts there’s so much energy that he emits in the audience response to. He’s certainly one of the best entertainers of all time. Just saw him at the Barclays center on Wednesday
Linda Schultz from Saint Paul, Minnesota
All's I can say as I followed Elton John my whole life been to a couple of concerts before of his but this was by far the best concert I've seen of Elton John and his band that band is so wonderful from attic and Powerful especially the percussion. My son DJ who is 33 has gone to several concerts with me some performers such as Bob Seger Fleetwood Mac and Ted Nugent and I'm so excited that he enjoys are totally classic era of 70s 80s music thanks again Elton John you were fantastic
Jimmy Blackstock from Knoxville, Tennessee
I've seen 1000 concerts. Best I ever saw.

ELTON JOHN FAREWELL TOUR-KNOXVILLE
Absolutely incredible concert!
Gretchen from Columbia, South Carolina
My 13-year old son who plays Elton John on piano called the concert "spectacular." Being a part of this legend, he said, was tremendous. Thank you Elton John for being there for my son.
Inhk from Columbia, South Carolina
AT LONG LAST!
Bought tickets as a gift to my wife for Christmas - in 2019! But well worth the wait. One of the best concerts I have ever had the privilege of attending.
Maureen Kulsar from Tampa, Florida
Sir Elton and his band were Incredible! I cannot say enough about this Performance, absolutely Magical!
The music, the instruments, the whole show was just something everyone needs to see!!! One of the Best Nights of my Life!!!!! Thank you Elton!
David from Tampa, Florida
ELTON JOHN AT AMALIE
This was a really great show, both visually and acoustically! My only complaint would be that the show was only an hour and a half. Granted, that ninety minutes was jam packed with hits that brought back so many memories. I applaud Sir Elton for doing as much as he does, especially at his age. This was one for the bucket list, as I had never seen him before.
Wanda from Orlando, Florida
Elton John may be deciding to end his world tours, but it does not appear to be a necessity as far as his voice is concerned. At 75 years old, he still puts on an incredibly entertaining concert. He is also very appreciative of his fans, and emphasises how much he thanks those who made him as popular as he is. No, the music was not too loud; to me, occasionally feeling the music is part of the concert experience, and, if you are an Elton fan, the videos made perfect sense. I will greatly miss his shows; he has enriched my life with hours and hours of entertainment, and I wish him nothing but the best. If you get the chance to see any of his remaining concerts, don't miss it. Best. Performer. Ever.
Carol Keller from Miami, Florida
FTX ARENA CONCERT
Can’t say enough about Elton John! Have always loved him and his music. So thankful for the times I’ve gotten to see him in concert. His talent is a gift to us all!
Chris from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
One of the best concerts I have ever seen. Everybody who is any kind of fan should see this tour because this really is the last time.
from New York, New York
Elton was amazing in his white tails and 90 degrees heat. He gives his audience what everyone wants to hear. His love of music and performing showed through all night. My son gave me tickets as a gift and we went together.Priceless.
Suzanne Flachbart from Boston, Massachusetts
ELTON AT HIS FINEST ! THE VOICE ! THE PIANO ! THE VIDEOS !
Would have rated 7 stars if possible
Barbara from Boston, Massachusetts
I don’t know what these few who complained are talking about I seen him at Gillette stadium july22,2022 and he was awesome!!!!!
Kate from Chicago, Illinois
Incredible concert! Amazing acoustics! My son went with me and we really had such a nice evening at Soldier Field! Sure Elton is a class act!
Kathy M. from Chicago, Illinois
SIR ELTON IS STILL STANDING!!
Elton & his iconic band were outstanding!
One hit after another! The stage, the lights, the sound & the crowd!!!
Goosebumps & happy tears all night!
So bitter sweet. The memories that accompanied every song....Thank you "Sir Elton " Enjoy your beautiful boys!!
Cher7 from Toronto, Ontario
Saw Elton John tonight In Toronto it was more than I expected. Amazing show so extremely happy I attended. My good friend invited me. I am forever in her debt.
Michelle from Washington, District of Columbia
FAREWELL YELLOW BRICK ROAD - NATIONALS PARK
Elton put on a fabulous show! His mesmerizing extended piano solo during Rocket Man was wonderful. He was cheerful, grateful, gracious, and throughly entertaining. I have seen Elton more times than I can count, and this show may just be my favorite. As a child who grew up in the 70s, he has been a fixture in my life. Last night's show was top notch, his backing band was brilliant, and I will be hoarse for days after so much singing and cheering. Thank you, Elton!
Joan Fuchsman from Washington, District of Columbia
BEST SHOW EVER
What an amazing night. Elton John was fabulous, singing all his hits. almost non-stop for nearly 3 hours. His band was also terrific. After all these years, he's still got. So glad i was able to finally see him.
John L. from Dallas, Texas
LEGEND LEAVES ON A HIGH
Elton was in great form at Arlington Globe Life Field and of course the whole band was terrific. Just loved seeing his long time collaborators one final time before he reaches the end of his Yellow Brick Road ... Davey Johnstone, Nigel Olssen and the irrepressible Ray Cooper. This was our second gig on the FYBR tour, almost four years apart here in DFW thanks to Covid and it was better than ever. Especially great to hear Have Mercy on the Criminal from the Don't Shoot Me album which I have never seen him play live before. Missed All the Young Girls Love Alice and Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters which he has played elsewhere on the tour I know but of course you can't have it all! Only downer ... The outrageous parking fee at the venue. Absolutely no excuse or justification for charging $55.
Donna from San Jose, California
MY DREAM CAME TRUE
I have been a huge fan of Elton John since I was a little girl he has always amazed me now I believe dreams come true as my dream came true seeing his last tour. His show was yet the best show I experienced in my life. The minute he came on stage the tears came and I am still in awe of watching the performance of a lifetime. The talent he has and the many fantastic songs he sang he kept the crowd going the entire show. The stadium was great and the staff was also helpful and friendly. This legend Sir Elton John show kept the young and old upbeat and cheering for more. Levi's stadium is a beautiful stadium and there was a great view anywhere you sat. I was in section 405 and was perfectly pleased with our seats. I kept pinching myself making sure this dream was real. Anyone who is blessed to see Elton's last concert your in for a treat. The playlist was great and all the pictures he showed were amazing. Thank you Elton John for giving me the best memories of a lifetime
Toshio Mills from San Francisco, CA
ELTON JOHN CONCERT @ LEVI STADIUM SUNDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2022
Elton John’s concert last night was spectacular! His band was great too - The Jumbotron screens and sound was superior!

ELTON JOHN - LEVI STADIUM
Outstanding concert! Great stage performance - His band sound like an orchestra, multi talented musician! Wonderful experience -
Mike Oz from Federal Way Washington
Great night with family & friends El Goucho for dinner, then a great performance by Elton opened with my all time favorite Benny & the Jets, closed with Yellow Brick Road !!!
Kim & Sherry from Vancouver, British Columbia
ELTON JOHN BC PLACE. FRIDAY OCT 20
Amazing show. Would recommend The floor for dancing and singing. He sang all the best songs and played over two hours. I would recommend this show to young and old alike. So worth going we bought tickets two years ago and the show was well worth the wait. Vancouver is an amazing city.
Louis from San Antonio, Texas
ELTON JOHN IN SAN ANTONIO, TX
This was the best EJ concert I’ve been to. He reached back into his beginnings with the song selection. Him and his guitarist where battling, very good, the percussionist was fantastic. This being his last tour, I am very glad I was able to go with my 3 sons and 1 of my grandchildren. He was so excited, this was his 1st of many more concert at the age of 8. I was in HS when I went to my 1st Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. These are moments I will always treasure. Thank EJ for the many memories you gave us last night. Best show ever. You are always welcome to come back to SA,Tx.
Colton Desmond from Weatherford TX
I have attended 27 elton john concerts. I have seen him 5 times on the farewell yellow brick road tour. 4 times at American Airlines Center December 14, and 15 of 2018 and March 10 and 11 of 2022. I also saw him at globe life field. Never disappoints. Even though I had to hold onto tickets for the 2 dallas shows earlier this year for over 2 years it was worth the wait and all 5 shows were sold out. Elton will always be an inspiration to me. Farewell to a legend
Patty from Phoenix, Arizona
ELTON JOHN FAREWELL TOUR
This was a fantastic show. He play for 2 1/2 hours without a break . The most he did was change his jacket half way. Probably because it should of been soaked, as hard as he worked.
He play, sang, told stories of his life and all his blessings. I loved the videos accompanying many of his songs. They showed many great photos of his life , his family and long singing career
Terry from Phoenix, Arizona
One of the best shows I’ve ever seen. I saw him 41 year’s ago at Red Rocks in Morrison Colorado, he still has it!! 💜
Brian Thompson from Phoenix, Arizona
BEST SHOW OF 2022
This show is a must-see for any music fan, the songs are incredible and the sound is stunning. The show is truly a spectacle for the senses. Elton still has it! 75 years of age has only made him better! The 2-hour show had all the energy and vitality of other acts in their 20s! The band is expertly capable and Percussionist Ray Cooper is breathtaking to watch. The videography and lighting were spectacular. This is Elton's last tour, Don't hesitate. SEE THIS SHOW!
Nora from Vancouver, British Columbia
ELTON JOHN FELLWELL YELLOWBRICK ROAD
I loved it this was my first time seeing Elton John live I danced where I was and I was singing along to my favorite songs.
ANL from Tulsa, Oklahoma
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.
Sandra from Boise, Idaho
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.
Shari from New York, New York
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.
Pam H from Chicago, Illinois
STAY HOME IF YOU WANT THE ICONIC ELTON JOHN TO SOUND LIKE HE WAS 45
Really this was like seeing a relative from overseas for the last time. I enjoyed it and it was bittersweet. Elton can't hit the high notes anymore-so his orchestration compensated for that -yes he can't walk very well anymore -he's 75 but to those of us who went to college or HS in the seventies it was like staying up late with a creative old pal who has brought such joy over 50+years with his music and his causes. So those of you who complain-go to a one hit wonder concert and leave the rest of enjoy the memories
John S. from Saint Paul, Minnesota
ELTON JOHN LEAVES ON TOP OF GAME.
I have high praise for Elton. He played his extensive catalog of hits. The band was tight. John's musicianship and performance was exactly what I'd expect of a 75 year old pop star. It was a mic drop final show. My only slight is that the dBs in the Excel Energy Center hovered between 95-100. I know people may say 'Ok Boomer,' but the hall was filled with Boomers. My favorite parts when it was just John at the piano.
Nancy & Karen from Syracuse, New York
EXCELLENT TRANSPORTATION FOR DISABLED ATTENDEES
I was really impressed with the relative ease for getting to and from the concert at the Dome. We parked in HDCP pkg, not far from buses, didn't wait in the shuttle bus line (my partner can't stand for more than a few minutes), there was a staffer inside to bring her to her section (307), though she had to go up 1 flight of stairs which we didn't expect based on my prior phone call).
It was tough to be on a bench without a seatback, but we left before the encore, and quickly found a wheelchair to bring her back to the gate. I could not get to Gate A without many explanations due to stair closings, but finally got to her and we reached the bus before the crowd left the stadium.
Todd from San Antonio, Texas
GOODBYE TO A LEGEND
Elton still has the vocals of 30 years ago! He was fabulous. There will never be another Elton John! He played to the crowd well in San Antonio. Didn't rate a 5 as thought the guitars were so loud during songs it was drowning out Elton - he could have carried that concert on his own just sitting at the piano - his voice and piano skills still amazing!!! He changed the tune on several old classics, not preferred, but it was well worth it th final journey down the yellow brick road. Thank you Elon for decades of entertainment!
GREG from Los Angeles, California
LOVE ELTON - DODGER STADIUM - NOT SO MUCH
Elton was fantastic and I enjoyed every minute I saw. I stress "every minute I saw" because getting into Dodger Stadium ended up requiring a 1.5 mile uphill march, followed by a LONG wait at the gate, long wait to get a wristband and bottlenecks as far as the eye could see. We missed the first 5-6 songs dealing with this confusion. I will not be attending another concert in this venue. I've gotten in and out of Coachella faster. BUT - Elton was WORTH IT!
GARY from Los Angeles, California
GREAT SHOW , POOR VENUE
I have seen Elton multiple times since the late 70's , he is always great and the show last night at the dodgers stadium was no exception . Fantastic sound, great band , classic songs and Elton being Elton . My only negative is the venue. The ability to get to dodgers stadium was painful. Traffic control was appalling and the end result was lots of empty seats as people struggled to get into the venue. How can this be such a mess . The stadium is way to big , the stage too far away so the atmosphere was poor to say the least . I saw the same show at staples and it was much better because it was a better venue , I understand why Elton wanted to play there because of the history but he sacrificed alot to do that .
John Z. from Las Vegas, Nevada
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.
Okay now from Syracuse, New York
HARD TO KNOW IF ELTON JOHN WAS NOT WARMED UP OR THE ACOUSTICS IN JMA DOME ARE THAT AWFUL
The overall concert was enjoyable. The first two numbers sounded like they hadn't done a sound check. The energy of the fans seem to help. The acoustics in the Dome are dreadful. Not a great place for a concert. The people who designed the Dome should be made to sit in the stadium seating for 3 hours a day for month. No obvious thought to any comfort.

GREAT CONCERT MARRED BY BAD ALAMODOME ORGANIZATION
The show was great, but there were major problems with the venue. First, the parking lots were full early, and all the parking around the dome was expensive and far from site. But worse were the lines to get in. They were using Ticketmaster scanning, and it took forever, so the concert started with thousands of people standing outside waiting to get it. The two women next to us came in after the show was half over, and they said it was because of the traffic and the long lines thick with concertgoers, which wrapped around the building. Can you imagine paying the ticket price for this event and then missing half of it because you couldn't get it? Whoever runs the Alamodome needs to figure this out. Disgraceful.

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.
Chris from New York, New York
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.

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.
Alice from Syracuse, New York
ELTON JOHN GREAT…AUDIO AT DOME TERRIBLE
Loved seeing Elton John in Syracuse but the acoustics were TERRIBLE! Lots of echo…too loud. Hard to understand when Elton was talking.
Would never go to the Dome again for a concert.
R from San Antonio, Texas
CONCERT GREAT.................PARKING, DRIVING, AND WALKING SUCKED.
Lose a lot stars because of road closures, no parking and having multiple events at the same time. Will think twice about any event at the Alamodome. First time there, and probably the last time. Commerce Streeet garage near Schilo's. An hour plus to get out from sixth floor. What if there was a medical emergency.
Ellen from Phoenix, Arizona
60,000 packed into chase field! Too many people! The sound was horrible. So loud and distorted.that you couldn’t even talk to the person next to you. Elton John was very good though. It just was so loud with the acoustical instruments that you couldn’t hear him very well. He is a treasure, though!
Jill Higgins from Los Angeles, California
POOR CHOICE IN VIDEOS FOR BIG SCREENS
Sir John was awesome. But selections for backup screens were disappointing. Instead of big screens being focused on displaying live shots of Elton and band members, there were random photos and videos while totally missing out on showing us Elton’s great performance .
However , There was 1 super small screen mounted on the side of the stage facing right field. It was at ground level, so people in walking in and out of ground level seats could still see the show.
This screen focused on displaying Elton John’s performance all night. So that is the screen I focused on. If you go, and you get tired of not being able to see close-ups of Elton’s hands playing the piano, see if you can see that little screen which is totally worth it to watch that view.

WANTED TO LOVE IT
I suspect we were there on a bad night for Elton. He relied too much on his back-up singers and pianist. In the end, it sounded almost like someone marginally talented singing karaoke. For the price of the ticket, I was disappointed.
Bruce Wasserman from New York, New York
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!
Cam Martin from Raleigh, North Carolina
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.
Lise Larin from Vero Beach, Florida
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!.
Tess from San Jose, California
SOUND WAS HORRIBLE!!!
So sad to be delivered such an awful show for such a superstar. Saw Elton with Billie Joel at SAP and it was one of the best ever concerts. This was one of the worst ever concerts. And it's not SAP's fault. The best sound at a concert I ever heard was Roger Water's "Us and Them" tour a few years ago at SAP. It was so far and above anything I had ever heard before that I was stunned. Hard to believe Elton would allow this horrible sound to happen.
KJ from Lincoln, Nebraska
The music quality was poor, acoustics were too loud, the videos were strange, and the presentation was poor. I would just stay home and save your money.
Sam from Toronto, Ontario
It was so twee he sang ok but the backgrounds and the show was blah and lazy
Mark Lewno from Dallas, Texas
NOT ELTON’S FAULT, BUT STILL, AFTER 3 YEARS OF WAITING..
We bought tickets for the farewell tour 3+ years ago. Round 1, cancelled due to covid. Rescheduled, cancelled again, rescheduled, Elton GOT covid, rescheduled again. Finally it takes place at Globe Life Field. First off, parking: A mile away and $55 just to park in their lot. We had Field seats next to the soundboard. No one (including security) could give us clear directions how to get down to the field. We had walk the entire perimeter and go down several flights of stairs, only to emerge on the wrong side of the field. No bathrooms, without going up four flights of stairs and walking halfway around the entire arena.
The PA was capable. My SmaarT RTA showed serious coverage down to 36Hz which should have been astounding. The line arrays were well tuned and had boatloads of dynamic range. The rest absolutely sucked. 1 second plus echo muddied everything to the point you couldnt’ even tell what the song was. Worst acoustics of any venue, ever. Utter Waste.
Disappointed in Vancouver from Vancouver, British Columbia
Seeing the icon was definitely an experience But the acoustics were so bad lyrics were indecipherable and sound was bombastic and muddy at best. Very disappointing
Joe C. from Phoenix, Arizona
SOUND DISTORTION AT CHASE FIELD
It was the worst ever. Absolutely horrible, gave my wife and I a horrible headache. We left after 1 1/2 hours of pure torture.
Rob from Los Angeles, California
DODGER STADIUM - HORRIBLE SOUND
What a waste. The sound was extremely over amped to the point of distortion. Could not hear Elton sing at points. Horrible. Horrible. Such a crappy way to go out. Seen Elton several times over the years and it was always amazing. Tonight was simply hideous.
