Cleveland, Ohio- A winter storm blew into the north coast but that in no way was going to deter they sold out audience at Cleveland’s Rocket Mortgage Field House from tonight’s concert .This being the final and farewell tour for Elton John this was a night that very few will ever forget . The popular singer is still riding high from this years biopic ” Rocketman ” of his life and this is the second leg of his tour and his last stop in Cleveland and the sold out crowd could not have been more thrilled .
The night started off with Bennie and the Jets and continued for close to three hours . The iconic line from the Spinal Tap film ” Hello Cleveland ” was of course produced but from Elton it really seamed genuine . Some of my favorite songs were ” Tiny Dancer ” , ” Daniel ” which brought a tear to my eye and of course ” Candle in the Wind ” for which made many a fan cry .
Elton’s band were top notch musicians as well , each a skilled artist in their own right . I can understand why Elton will be retired from the road , he honestly moved a little stiff on stage but damn he is 72 and he moves better then I do so he deserves a whole lot of slack . He still rocked for almost three hours .
If you are anywhere that he will be performing on this final leg , run don’t walk and get a ticket you will want to say you say him when he was still on top of his game and ladies and gentleman , he commands the game .
I can honestly say I was very glad to be part of this final tour and see him perform and as Elton says , love one another .
