Tuesday 30th April 2002 was the date, and the Sydney Entertainment Centre was the venue. The Stage lid with enthusiasm, and the light show blew the crowd away, Yes! It was another fantastic live performance from Elton John, perhaps him at his best, now being free from many of his personal problems, from years ago. I bought this album on the night of the concert, and expected the same level of energy, but was somewhat disappointed.
Many of the songs were coloured with the feeling of "done this many times before", and lack something I couldn't really put my finger on. Was it the arrangements or the production?... I don't know, but it just wasn't there. I wouldn't right it off as a bad album, as all of the tracks come across with a easy middle of the road mood, which I like. Besides "I want love", and "This train don't stop here anymore", the rest of the album lacks any real attention grabbing moments, which were present in the days of "Victim of love", "21 at 33", "The fox", "Jump up", "Too low for zero", "Breaking hearts", "Ice on fire", "Leather jackets", "Reg strikes back", and "Sleeping with the past".
