Elton John has had too many hits over the last three decades for the 12 songs in this collection to seriously be considered his "greatest," but that's hair-splitting. This hourlong concert, performed by John, his band, and several guest singers before a packed house at New York's Madison Square Garden in October 2000, certainly does contain some of his (and lyricist Bernie Taupin's) best and most popular tunes, like "Candle in the Wind," "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road," "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me," and "Your Song." And while Elton is a rather unlikely pop star these days--chubby, middle-aged, far less flamboyant than in his '70s heyday--he can still put on a good show, and that's just what he and his band (including longtime cohorts Davey Johnstone on guitar and Nigel Olsson on drums) do.

Some of his choices for guests are a bit puzzling: Bryan Adams adds little excitement to "Sad Songs (Say So Much)," while singer Ronan Keating of the British group Boyzone, a virtual unknown in the United States, is superfluous on "Your Song," perhaps Elton's most enduring tune (revived to considerably better effect on the Moulin Rouge soundtrack). On the other hand, Billy Joel is a good foil for Elton on "Yellow Brick Road," Mary J. Blige adds some soulful fervor to "I Guess That's Why They Call It the Blues," Kiki Dee shows up to duet with Elton on "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" for the first time in several eons, and the young American singer Anastacia is a revelation on a hard-rocking "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting." --Sam Graham

4.0 out of 5 stars Nearly Perfect Show! April 24 2004
By Martin A Hogan TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This is how a concert should be recorded! Twenty seven hit songs are remixed with this fantastic DTS Surround Sound (one of the best live recordings yet - on par with the Bee Gees "One Night Only"). Opening with the full length version of "Funeral For A Friend", you can feel and hear the heavy bass and soaring synthesizers that start the show. It never lets up with hit after hit. Elton peppers his show with guest appearances (Billy Joel at his best), Mary J. Blige (sings perfectly, but seems nervous), Ronan Keating (wonderful and smacking of confidence), Bryan Adams (excellent), Anastacia (vibrant) and Kiki Dee (what a way to end the show - with a classic duet). One can see from the list that the emphasis is on the seventies hits and that's just fine. The light show is brilliantly spot-on and every member of the band seems like a star. The direction works extremely well, except (and this is a big complaint), there are too many cuts to audience members. It is distracting to see close ups of fans dancing and singing. I am sure the intent was to personalize the show, but it just becomes annoying. I don't watch other people when I go to a show. However, this is the only thing I can find less than perfect about Elton John's performance. It is the sound that matters and this is simply the best live recording to date. The bonus extra video of Robert Downing, Jr. singing "I Want Love" is brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elton's Best Live DVD Ever July 18 2004
Format:DVD
This is he complete concert that was the basis for the CBS special "One Night Only. This is the complete 27 - song concert. The tv special and video cassette had just 12 songs. The cd had a little more with I think 17 or 18 songs. But this dvd shows the whole show. What it is is possibly Elton's best concert ever.
Elton was clearly in top form this evening. He is energetic, his keyboard playing is robust, and his voice is as powerful as it was thirty years ago. The show kicks off with Elton doing side one of "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road". The best of these performances is the opening "Funeral For A Friend"/"Love Lies Bleeding" (this is one of the many songs I was surprised he did) and "Bennie And The Jets". "Candle In The Wind" is also well. "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" with Billy Joel is good, but I prefer if Elton had done it alone. What I really liked about this concert is in additon to doing the familliar classics like "Philadelphia Freedom", "Daniel" and "Rocket Man", he does many of the less successful and therefore less popular hits. These include "Blue Eyes", "Club At The End Of The Street" and "Sacrifice". He also shys away from the hits concept and does a blistering cover of The Beatles classic "Come Together" (in tribute to John Lennon).
The guest stars are a mixed bag. Like everybody else, I was glad to know that Elton had Kiki Dee come on to the stage to do "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" with him for the first time since Live Aid in 1985. Mary. J. Blige gives a soulful flare to "I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues". As I said earlier, Billy Joel was okay on "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road".

Elton John can't sing the old songs as he once did, so he cranks up the lights and the glitz and the volume. Rather uneven with a series of duets interspersed. Production quality was just okay. One reason to watch this DVD, though, is the brilliant "I Want Love" video.
Good gift for a devoted fan, but except for the extra video I'd say this one can be skipped.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shows A Lot More Than The Live Album May 31 2004
Format:DVD
In 2000, Elton recorded a live album and tv special entitled "One Night Only". The album hit first and only included 17 songs from the concerts at Madison Sqaure Garden. The dvd followed and included the remaining 10 songs cut. The result was an electrifying performance by onne of rock's greatest legends.
Elton seems to be enjoying himself right from the first performance,an electrifying performance of "Funeral For A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding". He continues with great versions of songs like "Someone Saved My Life Tonight", "Candle In The Wind", "Bennie And The Jets", "Daniel", Rocket Man" and many others. The duets were okay. Nothing to rave about. The only one worth mention is the surprise inclsuion of "Don't Go Breaking My Heart". It's like 1976 all over again. Kiki Dee's voice still sounds the same. The other surpises were the rarely performed "Club At The End Of The Street" a cover of "Come Together".
I really think that people should have this dvd in their colection. All of the songs here are great. Buy it!

I read the previous reviews and would agree with them. The only comment I want to add is that the Irish singer Ronan Keating whom several reviewers found not-so-pleasant was excellent for me. In fact, in the song he sang with Elton John, I think Keating was even better than Elton. I guess these things are a matter of taste. I am not afraid of a second generation British invasion actually; I wish it could be allowed.
