Unlike the Madison Square Garden show he previously released with shots of fans over-riding the stage show; this one showcases those people as well as dozens of famous political, musical and acting celebrities. Robin Williams and Whoopie Goldberg bring on a fantastic, "Happy Birthday" and Bernie Taupin, who never appears on stage, gives a heart-felt salute to Elton on his birthday. It's all amazingly good fun and very emotional.
The light show is fantastic and the sound is pin-point perfect with a large young choir singing backstage that enhances the performance like no other Elton John has given. It truly feels like the celebration in New York City that night was something very special.
That's not all. This double disc set also includes eighteen "live, rare & unseen" performances from over the years that are a stunning reminder of what a fantastic musician Elton John is. On top of that, there is a section called, "Elton's New York Stories" that includes four personal emotional song videos of Elton that just pack more of a whollop you would not expect.
The sound quality (DVD, dts, 5.1) is superb enough to hear audience members actually talking and the band never sounded more crisp. Add to that an extensive booklet of liner notes and you have a keeper of a Birthday celebration. Elton John - you are a spectacle of a celebration!
The disc also features another two hours of Live, Rare and Unseen material that offers videos of the major songs from fifferent phases of the performers career from roughly 1970 forward to 2005. Also feaured are New York Sories, a group of videos with reference to the City of New York. A hidden track of Saturday Nights Alright for Fighting is well worth looking for.
This low priced two disc set is not to be missed.
One logistical note: Three hours doesn't fit on a standard DVD, so the concert itself is split on the 2-disc (Widescreen) version. If you want to watch the whole thing uninterrupted, get the Single-disc version.
I hope Elton to carry on singing his song to age of 70,80,even 90!!
Elton 60 is better than the terrible "Red Piano" from Las Vegas which seems phony to me.
But it doesn't have the character of the Dream Ticket concert at the Ephesus disk (in Turkey?)
One man, a piano and some candles and an audience. The camera work was awful but Elton shined.
(It's probably hard to get good camera ops in Turkey.)
Back to Elton 60. Good, not his best.
Elton never changes. A hard wired Shure SM-58 (not expensive), and THREE monitor speakers blasting towards the piano.
I guess he's been burned by wireless too often.
