Sir Elton, just days from his 65th birthday, ”held court” for nearly 3 hours at Madison’s Alliant Energy Center, to quote the Wisconsin State Journal.

The headliner, supported by a seven-piece band and four backup singers, breezed through 29 songs, pausing once in a while to acknowledge the capacity crowd.

Besides concert staples like Bennie and the Jets and Tiny Dancer, Elton performed rarer numbers like Grey Seal and All The Girls Love Alice.

Highlights were numerous, like when Elton turned Levon into an Old Testament prophecy by repeating the line ‘he shall be Levon’ and when he sang three tunes from The Union.
