Face 2 Face Set List Possibilities


Below is a sample of songs used in previous Face 2 Face tours throughout the world. I have collated this with a selection of rumored songs, current tour set lists from both Elton & Billy and news reports.

The below is only a guide as to what could possibly be seen. We will have to wait until the first show in March before the official set list is known.

The bracketed number alongside each song is my personal rating on the possibility of each song being in the 2009 set. 1 = Low chance, 5 = very high chance of occurrence. Remember, each artist will perform an individual set with their own bands, they will perform a set in which they trade lyrics with both full bands, and they will also perform an encore of each-others hit duets. The show will last for between 2 1/2 hrs to 3 /12 hrs. Elton has stipulated that new material will be included as well as classic hit songs, Billy is known for constantly mixing up his set - so his is even more subject to change.

Third Row in Madison Wisconsin!!!!

Question: Why would NY State of Mind be played by Elton, if it's a Billy song?

Elton Fan said...

You are correct, New York State of Mind is a Billy Joel song.

However, at these face to face concerts, it is customary for each performer to play one of the other performers songs with their own band.

Billy may do candle in the wind or goodbye yellow brick road.

Hope that helps.
