Elton's Emotional Concert in Naples

Elton John performed a solo show for the Piedigrotta festival at Plebiscito square in Naples September 11, 2009.

This was an incredibly emotional concert for Elton, as it was his first public event since the passing of Guy Babylon.

The show featured several new additions including The One, Song for Guy and Can you Feel the Love Tonight.

At times Sir Elton struggled with some notes and lyrics, finding the event, a difficult show to perform, given his recent emotion.

He dedicated the free concert to Guy and said it was "the saddest time in his life".

Below is the full set list:

The One
Your Song
Sixty Years On
The Greatest Discovery
I Need You To Turn To
