Elton John: The Red Piano DVD Review & Giveaway!!!


Elton John has been breaking records with his sell out crowds of over 200 performances of his The Red Piano concert at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas! He's a legend for both his vocals and his sensational abilities on the piano! For the first time, they have released a live performance of his Red Piano concert on dvd and blu-ray.

I love Elton John! From his oldies to his more recent music, he's always been an artist that I could listen to and enjoy. One of my favorites of his is Candle in the Wind and I was excited to hear it played on this DVD! The songs he performed are:

1) Bennie and the Jets
2) Philadelphia Freedom
3) Believe
4) Daniel
5) Rocket Man
6) Answer in the Sky
7) Tiny Dancer
8) Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me
9) Candle in the Wind
10) Pinball Wizard
11) The Bitch is Back
12) I'm Still Standing
13) Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting
14) Your Song

I normally don't enjoy dvds of concert performances, but what I like about this one is that I can listen to it while doing other things, as if it were a CD, but being live, there is the crowd interaction and the showy performance factors, so it can also be watched and enjoyed as well!

Family Time Factor: Anyone that loves music can enjoy this, but small children are going to lose interest and want to do something else.

MOTR Grade: B-

Elton John: The Red Piano is currently available on DVD and Blu-Ray!

  2. It's hard to pick just one. I've been lucky enough to have seen him twice by himself and 2 times face-to face with Billy Joel. Elton rocks!!! We even took the boys the last 2 times!!

    I guess I'll choose Your Song if you're gonna make me choose!

  56. My favorite Elton John song would have to be "Crocodile Rock," not only because it's a fun, feel-good song, but because it's the first song I remember loving as a kid when my mom and dad would dance around the room with me while it played. Would love to check out this concert DVD - thanks for the chance to win a copy!
