Wonderfully orchestrated highlighting Elton's earlier hits and a true testament to his classically trained back ground.
Elton experienced vocal problems around the time of recording this live concert that would eventually lead to throat surgery, leaving his professional career in question for the foreseeable future. What you get here is not sugary sweet melodies but an epic rawness that comes out in his performance. What you get is the classics pumped up and in your face. From the emotional Have Mercy on The Criminal or dramatic King Must Die to more popular hits like Candle In The Wind or Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me, this is Elton John Live at his best in the 80's. A true must have!
