|Elton John and band performed in Kansas City on October 13, 2007
Tuesday, October 16 2007
Fan report by Marian Joy Friedman-Kaplan.
We had 4th row center. The best seats we ever had for an Elton show and I have to write, the audience at the Sprint Center was the loudest audience I ever heard. My sister and I had to cover our ears they were so loud. Rarely did the audience sit down. No lie, Kansas City was one of the most enthusiastic Elton crowds I ever heard/saw.
The set list was great because there was a good mix of old and new. Elton looked dapper as usual. Great sequence jacket with a crocodile on it and he really opened that brand new arena in style big time. Extremely charming and complimentary, he gave a great performance and that audience from Kansas City was loving it.
For me, he is beyond a doubt the best showman of our times for so many reasons and I loved traveling to new place to see and hear him perform. With all the things happening everywhere in the world, it is indescribeable that I can travel anywhere he is performing (I really mean anywhere) and the joy, love and happiness that happens when he is performing, is overwhelming. It is so quite unusal and rare. How lucky I have been to see and hear such beauty. Nothing can acurately describe it. I appreciate this man so much. He deserves so much good back.
