After a short break I'll continue the uploads. And we'll stay in the late 80's early 90's for a couple of uploads to come.
This next show is Elton's tribute show to late Dee Murray. It was played in Nashville at the Grande Ole Opry House, the 15th of March 1992. Elton had obviously chosen to do concert solo and this show is got of some quite interesting points.
What is very interesting is that Elton used his Steinway grand piano for this show which he stopped using in 1986.
Also, this show was one of the first public shows without the band. Elton did a lot of Ray Cooper concerts during the 70's but never a solo show with only him and the piano (only once in Scotland in 1976 which is on my channel!). The show contains the first solo version of 'Burn Down The Mission', 'Philadelphia Freedom' (which is awesome!), 'The North' (which is rarely played - he played it during the Ray Cooper concerts in 1993 and 1994), and 'That's What Friends Are For' (which is the only performance only by Elton as far as I know).
We have to remember that this show was a memorial concert and therefor the rock songs like 'Burn Down The Mission', 'Philadelphia Freedom', and especially 'Bennie And The Jets' is a bit inappropiate.
However, this show is an excellent show and the quality is in fantastic soundboard quality.
