About 30,000 piled into Wellington’s Westpac Stadium on November 21st to see Elton perform. Classics like Bennie and the Jets and Candle in the Wind had the crowd on their feet.
However, it was his tribute to Jonah Lomu that got the loudest applause. Before singing Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me, Elton said:
“I want to pay tribute to one of the greatest athletes of all time who passed away this week under tragic circumstances. Loved around the world. Superstar is an over used word, this man was a giant. He will be so sadly missed.
