On October 27th at New York's Madison Square Garden, Billy Joel paid homage to Elton with a rendition of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, as yellow lights graced the stage.
Joel explained that he has worked with Elton for many years and noted that the Englishman will be playing at MSG in the next month as well, as part of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour.
Billy then expressed his views of what his own "farewell" tour would be like. He jokingly mentioned that his "farewell tour" would involve him sitting on a sofa, relaxing and eating a sandwich, with bulletproof glass around him, and no singing at all.
A day earlier, Harry Styles also had Elton on his mind. For a Halloween bash in Los Angeles, he wore a pair of oversized sunglasses as well as a glittery Dodgers uniform. The outfit strongly resembled Elton's attire back in 1975, when he played L.A.'s Dodger Stadium.
