Elton Might Perform 'Empty Garden' in Manila, GBYBR Anniversary Show Being Considered

Since the date of his concert at the Smart Araneta Coliseum falls on the 32nd death anniversary of Lennon's assassination, John was asked if he would do a tribute sequence for his friend come concert night.

"I sometimes perform ('Empty Garden') at my concerts but I have not yet decided if I will play it on December 8," he relied.
