The Concert

Last night I went to see James Blunt and Elton John in concert.  This is from last night!!
I was there to the right of the stage (if you are looking at the stage)

I thoroughly enjoyed James Blunt. He is entertaining, 
talented and gave a great full hour of beautiful music.

Elton John...well, he is Elton John!  
He is getting older and is quite out of shape, 
but he is a master of music.  
I can't tell you how many times I watched his fingers 
work magic on the the keyboard, by watching the big tvs.
We bought the more expensive tickets, 
which got us closer to the action.  
We only had to stand for the whole 4 hours of the concert, wriggle our way around
2 Jolly Blue Giants, but hey, in the end....
it was a great show.  
Truthfully, James Blunt was my favorite, but how can one complain
about having the amazing opportunity to see 
Elton John perform?
It was a great night!

I really wanted to go, but when I read that he was going to play in São Paulo, there weren´t tickets available...

I am so happy you had this opportunity.

I'm SO jealous!! So glad you had a great time!! You go girl!

I wanted to see Billy Joel/Elton John concert when it was around a few years ago but missed the opportunity. (Billy is right after Elvis for me)

Elton John is legendary...check out Ben Folds sometime. Lyrically, he is more sarcastic...but he can pound a piano into the ground! If you are not already into him, check out "Narcolepsy" if you can find a good version on YouTube.
