Elton Wants to Return to Hawaii Next Year

Elton John played near the top of his game on Saturday night at Blaisdell Arena, with a strong voice, triumphant manner and tight band behind him.

In between songs, John thanked Hawaii fans for remaining loyal to his music. He made reference to the terrorist attacks this week in Paris when introducing 2007 song "Believe," with its line, "Love has no boundaries, no borders to cross." And he praised Hawaii, saying, "It's a long way away, but we love it. We love to come here and play."

Coming back to the present day, he told the audience he was happier than ever and "comfortable in my own skin," referring to his partner David Furnish and their two children.

During the encore, John pointed out promoter Tom Moffatt, standing by the side of the stage, and thanked him for helping put together four decades of Hawaii shows. As John prepared to wind up his performance, he said, "Let's do some more, shall we?"
