I bought this DVD because when I first saw the concert on my computer as it was being recorded Live on MSN.com, I couldn't believe how fantastic the entire production was...Elton was absolutely amazing, as usual; and his energy and musical ability are flawless, the fact that this man can still create such an incredible reaction from his fans at the concert after so many years of performing is truly amazing but not hard to believe. The man is a musical genius and always will be one of the greatest performers of our time. In my opinion he, as an artist and also as a great humanitarian is a National Treasure, One of the last great performers of our time - the likes of which we will never see again once he has passed from this earth. I cannot believe that he put on a 3 + hour show and played some of my favorite early songs such as "High Flying Bird" "Ballad of a Well Known Gun", "Hercules", etc..these were favorites of mine as well as early Elton fans of the 70's and I think we all enjoyed listening and reminiscing over these tunes as well as the current setlist that he normally performs. The band was also excellent and high energy. I enjoyed the Cellist as well; I thought he added so much to the production numbers that he performed in. The choir was good, however, I like just listening to the band with Elton and sometimes when he performs with an Orchestra; but I don't care too much for the choir for some reason. All in all I bought this DVD mainly because I am Elton John fan and collector and I wanted to have a little piece of history to call my own being his 60th Birthday celebration and also the fact that he had played Madison Square Garden for the 60th time which was a milestone event in itself; and also it included a separate DVD of Elton's TV performances that were extremely rare; some never before seen footage of him that is so priceless to any Elton John fan to have in their collection. This was icing on the cake for me. Thank you for this wonderful DVD collection set of him; I will cherish it forever. - Kerri Standing
This concert celebrates Elton's 60th birthday and his 60th time performing at Madison Square Garden. This dvd has many classic Elton John songs and obscure songs that I haven't heard in a long time. It also has concert footage from years past.
I really like this blu-ray, the only thing that I miss was the song "Goodbay yellow brick road".
The image is amazing! I didn't see anything wrong with the sound, for me it was perfect (5.1)!
It's really worth!
All the best songs, new versions, fine old footage from the past, well done. Bought it didn't I? If you only see one DVD, this is the one. Don't miss it!!!!
What an amazing concert! Sound and video beyond excellent. You can tell they knew they had one shot at this one. Talent like this comes along just a few times every century. Elton, of course surrounded himself with the very best musicians and techs, but this man can play the Piano like no one else.
Big fan of Elton John, and love this DVD. I bought this because of the great
price, and it was for sale in Ontario, Canada!
one of the best concert i seen in my life. i really like this singer . all the show is very beautiful and very attractive .... im very happy about this dvd
I love everything about it. I bought this product because I never got to see the Elton John concert when he performed here in Canada so this is the next best thing. I loved it.
This is an excellent live Elton John DVD from Madison Square Garden. You can see this live performance whenever the mood strikes, without leaving the house and incurring a great expense. It's definitely worth it's weight in gold!
