Elton John is without a doubt a living legend and one of the most fortunate things about living in Los Angeles, epecially Hollywood, is having the opportunity to see amazing ‘once in a lifetime’ type performances like this one. Elton John and Leon Russel was a concert I will never forget.
This show was a one of a few rare performance to promote the recent collaboration between Elton John and Leon Russel. Honestly, before this show I was completely unaware of who Leon Russel was, but it says a lot that he was a highlight for many people at a show that featured Sir Elton.
While I enjoyed Elton John’s performance immensely, I too was amazed by Leon Russel’s voice. His ZZ-Top appearance was an interesting contrast to Elton’s sparkly sequin “Rocket Man” jacket. I can’t say it enough… putting these two performers on stage at venue like the Palladium was an incredible experience.
I will not hesitate, given the opportunity to see either of these guys again. The show was being recorded on video and audio, so I would expect to see something released from this show in the near future. Give their new album “The Union” a listen!
