Elton John and band performed in Amsterdam on November 22, 2016
Friday, November 25 2016

Fan report by Filip Arijs.

This evening Elton was even more enthusiastic than three days ago in Antwerp. He said it was too long since theyíve been in Amsterdam and reminisced about those wild nights in the Hilton in Amsterdam.

Elton started "Rocket Man" with a very special solo Ö the band had even a few minutes to get a drink. I recognized some tones of "Take Me To The Pilot" and "Border Song" in it and it was wonderful to hear.

Matt Bissonetteís bass was very prominent in "Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word" and "Burn Down The Mission". The number of guitars Davey played on seemed countless.

Playing all those concerts in this tempo, Elton and his band are in good shape! Even if he plays 25 songs itís always over too soon. And you always leave with a very happy feeling. Thank you Elton for those wonderful concerts.
