Last night I went with the roomies to see Elton John and Billy Joel in concert (they're still doing the Face 2 Face series--a hilarious title but so DEAD ON BECAUSE THEY HAVE THEIR PIANOS FACE EACH OTHER IN A MASTER PIANO-OFF). IT WAS A PHENOMENAL SHOW. One of those epic nights that EVERYONE needs to experience at somepoint in their life--they played almost all the hits, with each playing separately for an hour and a half, then together for an hour, for a total of 4 hours of serious musical bliss. I realize that it's essentially a gay man's concert combo dream but this show is for anyone who loves America and loves to rock, so anyone. SERIOUSLY.
Elton John did the most incredible version of "Rocketman" I've ever heard.
And this was hilarious. They are both quite theatrical.
And of course, "Candle in the Wind." (And you catch the beginning of "Piano Man" which is what they closed with...)
