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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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".Read more ›
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 note that some other reviewers have made negative comments about the duets; don't let them put you off this disc. Yes, perhaps it might have been more a "pure" EJ show without them, but take my advice, take the duets on their own merits (especially the electric performance from Anastacie), and I don't think you'll be disappointed.
(One further note: the Dolby 5.1 mix is dynamite.)

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. Read morePublished on July 11 2004 by My Twin
