WHEW!!! THE MAN'S STILL GOT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
By Lala Lady
I saw this as a tv special & just had to order it on Blu Ray. This disc will have you dancing in your living room…you'll be 25 again, I promise you. I had the thrill of seeing Elton's Red Piano show in Las Vegas several years ago, but this show outdid even being there in person. Sure, there are loads of special effects, but they just add to the energy and excitement of watching the performance. They didn't seem gimmicky, just fun. Forget going to the gym- just buy this Blu Ray and enjoy 45 years of an immense talent!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Bitch is Back!!!
By Orlando Mercado
I saw EJ at The Colosseum on April 1, 2014, and this concert video brings the memories right back... it feels as if I am there at The Million Dollar Piano concert. The sound and visuals on the Blu-Ray version are phenomenal, and the documentary on the creation of the Yamaha piano is very interesting... it is great to see these accomplished Yamaha engineers team with EJ's team to produce such a magnificent instrument.
Regarding the concert itself, EJ's voice is as strong as can be expected for his age and previous excesses, but the show is spectacular, and the setlist is really good, with several notable omissions, such as "Someone Saved My Life Tonight", which EJ can no longer sing in its original key. Otherwise, EJ puts on a very strong performance, and the band and back-up vocalists do an excellent job. Highly recommended!

Amazing, spectacular, and beautiful music.
I had just recently seen this show in Las Vegas and thought he sounded fantastic. His piano playing brought tears to my eyes. After 50 years in the business he never sounded better. My only complaint with the show was that the stage is so large that it dwarfs the performers. The blu-ray of the show allows us to see,up close and personal, the musicians and Elton's amazing piano playing. Highly recommended if you are a fan.
