Elton – the legend goes on review

At the arena, the iconic performer delivers not just his standards but his latest work as well.

At this point in his career, no one could really blame Elton John if he decided to take it easy and coast into retirement.

Elton John performs at the Mohegan Sun Arena Friday night. Before a packed house, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame performer blended his most familiar work with his latest creations.
Judging by his sold-out performance at the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza Friday night, that’s not going to happen anytime soon.
Instead of just playing his greatest hits, the 64-year-old piano player showcased his latest work with a superb five-song mini-set that proved that not all of his best days are behind him.
Making his fourth appearance at the Wilkes-Barre Township arena, and his first in nearly three years, John electrified the audience from the moment he took the stage to the familiar strains of his epic, 12-minute masterpiece “Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding.” And he never let up for more than two-and-a-half hours.
Early highlights included second song “Saturday Night’s Alright (For Fighting),” and joyous romps through “Levon” and “Madman Across The Water.”
Backed as always by a superb band consisting of longtime drummer Nigel Olsson, guitarist Davey Johnstone, keyboardist Kim Bullard, bassist Bob Birch and percussionist John Mahon, the 1994 inductee of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame did a masterful job of alternating rockers with ballads and big hits with fan favorites.
“The Union,” his recent duet album with Leon Russell, was well represented with great versions of “Hey Ahab” and “Monkey Suit,” and the touching song about the American Civil War, “Gone To Shiloh.”
After the five new songs, John and his band then played one big hit after another. Some of the highlights included an extended “Rocket Man,” a nice “Sad Songs (Say So Much)” and a crowd-pleasing, sing-along “Crocodile Rock” to end the main set.
Some of the evening’s best moments were on the ballads, especially the three-song showcase of “Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word,” “Candle in the Wind,” and “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me.”
After a brief exit, he came back on stage, signed some autographs for the fans in the front row and capped the evening with a spectacular version of “Your Song.”
John’s next show will be tonight in Rochester, N.Y. The next concert at the Mohegan Sun Arena is Avenged Sevenfold with openers Sevendust and Three Days Grace on April 29.

WILKES-BARRE TWP. - One of pop music's quintessential icons, Elton John, made a triumphant return to town Friday evening, and unlike his first visit, he came complete with a full band in tow.
Prior to his upcoming three-year commitment in Las Vegas, Mr. John is on the road for a brief tour which, much to the delight of the sold-out Mohegan Sun Arena audience, included Northeast Pennsylvania.
Along with his band, the Grammy Award-winning, Hall of Fame rocker played superbly through a playlist laden with million-sellers and tracks that dominated the radio airwaves over the past four decades.
From the solemnity of the opening version of "Funeral for a Friend" and "Love Lies Bleeding," from 1973's mega-seller "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road," through the pop successes he co-wrote with Bernie Taupin, Friday evening was a musical gem in every respect.
Mr. John played the grand piano front and center while his journeymen backing musicians lined across the rear of the stage.
Many of the evening's ballads had a soulful feel. Mr. John included four female backing singers who not only added impetus to the songs but filled the refrains making them more bountiful and giving them added purpose.
The veteran entertainer, born Reginald Dwight, only seemed to struggle once and that was with the cadence during "Philadelphia Freedom." An experienced sound team filled any gaps capably, though, as the digital vocal repetition added depth when it was needed.
The 64-year-old native of Middlesex, England, took bows between songs, sipping from a water glass and waving in a 360-degree spin to the cheering audience, all the while smiling and bowing - seeming to enjoy the songs as much as the audience did.
A raucous version of "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting" seemed to genuinely kick-start the evening after the opening exchange of a song medley and applause. "Levon" and the title track from "Madman Across the Water" bridged the playlist from opening tracks to his "Greatest Hits" playlist.
"Tiny Dancer" and "Daniel" served as perfect introductions to an extended version of "Rocket Man" that seemed like it would never end - not that the audience wanted it to. A soulful version of "I Guess That's Why They Call It the Blues" brought pause to the "hits" playlist as Mr. John framed some tracks from his celebrated album with Leon Russell, "The Union."
"Hey Ahab" had life and direction, but even Mr. John seemed to miss Mr. Russell, and the friend-playing-with-friend impetus from the sessions didn't seem to be there.
But after that respite, it was back to the hits, and they continued to flow seamlessly over the two-plus hour concert. The band was adept, Mr. John seemed to be enjoying every moment and the audience seemed to know they had seen something very special.
Friday evening's concert received meticulous sound mix, flawless musicianship and an audience that genuinely seemed to appreciate it all.
Mr. John's return trip to the arena was possibly his last after he becomes entrenched in Las Vegas, but then again, the Rocket Man has been known for some surprises too.
You never can tell where that yellow brick road will lead.
