A Spectacular Concert

"1992 when Elton finally overcame his personal addictions and reemerged as one of the world's consumate showmen. Touring to promote his (then) new album "The One", he stopped over in Barcelona for a filmed concert. The result was this amazing live dvd that every music fans must have.This truly is one of the best shows he ever did. He sounds alive and well and he is clearly enjoying himself more than he head in years. The highlights on this disc include "Philadelphia Freedom", "Burn Down The Mission", "Tiny Dancer", "Mona Lisas And Mad Hatters Parts 1 & 2" and "Funeral For A Friend"/Love Lies Bleeding". He also does a few songs he rarely ever takes a stab at in concert. "Blue Avenue" is a track from 1989's "Sleeping With The Past" that is hardly heard. Here, he does a flawless rendition that beats the albukm version by a long shot. Also, there's the slightly eerie instrumental "Song For Guy", done in a medley with "Your Song".Also included is a 52 - minute documentary with interviews conducted with Elton, Bernie Taupin and Giannie Versaci, to name a few. Overall a great live dvd that has Elton in top form."
Better than Madison Gardens concert

"This DVD relates to a concert filmed in 1993 to promote EJ's then new album "The One". Elton's voice was much better compared to the 2000 Concert in Madison Square Gardens DVD. The tracklist is more interesting too as he has thrown is some rarities and some album tracks - whereas the 2002 Madison Square Gardens DVD is a Greatest Hits show. The other highlight of this concert is that EJ sings all his songs. On the Madison Square Gardens concert 2000 he has alot of guests on stage helping out. Ok, that's not such a bad thing, but when you go to see EJ, you want to see and hear EJ.This DVD also contains an hour documentary on EJ which is reason enough to buy the DVD. It's a great documentary and contains some rare footage too, as well as film clips from yesteryear which I haven't seen in a long time.The DVD also boast a nice clear image unlike the Madison Square Gardens concert (very blurry).My review is simply to help you decide which one to buy. Or you could just buy them both."

Great Live Show

"After finally kicking a long - time drug addiction, Elton John went on tour in 1992 to promote his new album "The One". It was one of his best tours ever. His voice was in top form, his keyboard playing was magical and he was once again just having fun being himself. Cameras were lucky enough to capture his concert in Barcelona, Spain. It captures the essence of a great Elton John live show.The song selection is great, although I wish "Bennie And The Jets" was included. Highlights include electrifying renditions of "I'm Still Standing", "Burn Down The Mission", "Mona Lisas And Mad Hatters 1 & 2" and "Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting". It was great to hear the extended versions of "Sad Songs (Say So Much)" and "Funeral For A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding" (as if the latter wasn't long enough). His voice is especially strong on "The One", "Tiny Dancer" and "Daniel". The closing medley of "Song For Guy/Your Song" ends the dvd on a high note.Also included is a 52 - minute documentary that features interviews with Elton, Bernie Taupin, Giovanni Versace, Davey Johnstone and others, as well as a behind - the - scenes look at how the tour came together. A great dvd. I highly recommend it."
