4.0 out of 5 stars Dream Ticket 17 Oct 2011
By Robert
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Greatest Hits - One Night Only

You can't go wrong with the Greatest Hits and here you get them all, from the soothing ballads to the slam bam rockers. Goodbye Yellow Brick Road with Billy Joel is a definite highlight that comes to mind with some rare tunes like Little Jeanie and the Beatles classic Come Together that stand out.

Video:
The video quality is soft, undefined and the colour "bleeds" as if you were watching the concert on VHS. Poor by today's DVD standards.
Up-scaled through HDMI brings out sharper images though the colour is still poor.

Sound:
The 5.1 mix makes up for the picture quality with Elton's voice, piano and drums streaming through the center speaker, rest of the band through front and backing vocals taking the rear speakers.

To me this remains a classic Elton John concert.

The Royal Opera House

Elton hits the nail on the head with this concert. The orchestra brings a classical feel to Elton's already classic music.
Highlights include the wonderfully orchestrated Carla etude, Tonight, Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word, with Philadelphia Freedom taking the cake.

Video:
The image quality here is the best in the box set. Crisp and clear, however a bit dark through out.
HDMI gets you near HD quality.

Sound:
The 5.1 mix on this disc is truly amazing with all 5 speakers alive with sound. Elton and band stream through the front with orchestra and choir complementing from rear speakers. This is the best 5.1 Dolby mix I've ever heard on an Elton dvd and I have them all.

The only odd thing I found about this disc is that it only features 12 tracks. One feels somewhat unsatisfied as the concert draws to a close, wanting more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing set of concerts and footage 2 Mar 2011
Format:DVD
This is a great set both for fans and those looking to buy thier first elton john DVD.

Disc 1 is a good concert but is of the greatest hits that has been previously released which was recorded at Madison Square Garden in 2000. Has a great range of the classic hits sung by Elton and also Elton with other stars such as Bryan Adams, Kiki Dee and Billy Joel.

Disc 2 which was recorded at The Royal Opera House 2002 show his back at the music school he started at joined by the school orchestra. The production is great and he works really well with the orchestra as well. There is a short interview section at the start before this begins.

Disc 3 which was recorded at the Great Amphitheatre, Ephesus 2001 is probably my favourite of the disc and shows Elton playing to fans in a great setting using only the piano as the instrument. Although this is my favourite a couple of the songs sound a little odd with just the piano, these are I'm Still Standing and Crocodile Rock but then these are more pop/rock and do need other instruments normally.

Disc 4 is Elton In Four Decades which is a documentary + promos. This is a series of short interviews and music excerpts from videos and live footage and features both Elton and the band talking about the songs as well as other people from the world of film and music.

I would recommend this set to everyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely sensational 23 Jan 2005
By A Customer
Format:DVD
The DVD comprises of 3 incredibly well recorded concerts in the last 5 years, MSG in 2000, Ephesus in 2001 and Opera House in 2002.
The songs vary from his early years songs right up to Songs from the West Coast.
Take my word for it and get it, I was hooked on him from hearing the MSG concert, and haven't looked back since.
