Elton John in Concert

Happy Sunday!  Saturday Night Was Alright for us!  My Mom gave us tickets to see Elton John in concert last night (for our 18th wedding anniversary in May).  Well, they weren't only tickets they were INCREDIBLE tickets!  6th Row, Center!!!!!  THANKS MOM!!!

He saw me!  He's pointing at ME!  I knew all those self adhesive crystals I wore would make me stand out in the crowd.  LOL! (just kidding...no bling was harmed!)


He was amazing.  He played 2.5 hours NON-STOP.  No breaks!  Then he came back out for an Encore and sang 2 more songs!  Almost 3 hours of Elton John Live.  He sounds just as good live as he does on the radio.  He even still has his original drummer that started with him back in 1969.  I'm happy to say...that was before I was born.  (...barely, LOL!)  

This is me watching Elton.  If you look over my shoulder you can see Elton on the Big Screen.  Hubby took this shot while sitting down.  He had a pretty serious ladder fall last weekend that required surgery.  He is recovering well but still very sore and tired.  He had to sit down after a couple hours of standing.  His legs just couldn't take anymore.  He had a great time even though he had to watch parts of the show over my shoulder.  

If you ever get the chance to see Elton John in concert....DO IT!! He is definitely worth EVERY PENNY!  We have been to a LOT of concerts over the years and he is awesome!  Just a singing machine!  We wanted to see him while he was in Vegas but that didn't happen.  Thankfully he came to our area!  What an opportunity!  Thanks Mom and Elton for a fantastic evening!
