European Tour Begins On a Sour Note
At Elton's concert at Cardiff International Arena on June 8, the star announced that The Union would be his last record he will ever release.
"I can't face the time in the studio, followed by rounds of interviews and promotions anymore."
Furthermore, Elton was quoted as having said "Fu..wit" in reference to a failed lighting queue, when the star asked that the spotlight be shone on the 2Cellos musicians accompanying him for "Your Song". The lighting crew failed to act on this request and Elton became frustrated at their incompetence.
Fans have also reported extremely poor audio quality at the start of this European tour. Lets hope this improves over time and Elton is simply frustrated with glitches.
The not so impressive new setlist is listed below:
Funeral For A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding
Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting
Madman Across The Water
Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
I Guess Thats Why They Call It The Blues
Gone To Shiloh
Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word
Take Me To The Pilot
Dont Let the Sun Go Down On Me
Are You Ready For Love
Bennie and The Jets
The Bitch Is Back
