Elton John -- Providence, RI -- November 9th, 2013

A nice long set by Elton. Pretty much the same set as when I saw his Las Vegas show ("The Million Dollar Piano"). One thing I missed in this touring performance was Ray Cooper on percussion - that dude is a madman!

It's still surprising to me how many deeper cuts he includes at the expense of some of the "hits". I guess you can do whatever the hell you want to do when you're that Big!

He even apologized for how painful it is to have to sit through the news songs, but that there would only be a few!

Setlist:

1. Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding
2. Bennie and the Jets
3. Candle in the Wind
4. Grey Seal
5. Levon
6. Tiny Dancer
7. Holiday Inn
8. Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters
9. Believe
10. Philadelphia Freedom
11. Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
12. Rocket Man
13. Hey Ahab
14. I Guess That's Why They Call It the Blues
15. The One
16. Oceans Away
17. Voyeur
18. Someone Saved My Life Tonight
19. Sad Songs (Say So Much)
20. All the Girls Love Alice
21. Home Again
22. Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me
23. I'm Still Standing
24. The Bitch Is Back
25. Your Sister Can't Twist (But She Can Rock 'n Roll)
26. Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting

Encore:
27. Your Song
28. Crocodile Rock
