Concert review and horn tootin'

Quick overview of the Elton John concert--in short, it was fantastic. He left stage for all of 90 seconds during a 2 1/2 hour concert. And he didn't waste time between songs. He played, he bowed, he acknowledged all corners of the venue, then he'd sit back down and start the next song. And other than the five minutes he spent signing autographs for those in the front row, it was all music. Elton doesn't hit the high notes like he used to. Doesn't even try. But that's OK--the 8000 fans took care that for him. Didn't play any of his Broadway or movie songs (thank God). Played literally every song off of the first greatest hits album, plus some others from his earliest albums. All in all--a GREAT concert!! Sorry--no pics. Would have needed the big camera for anything decent. No way they were allowing those in!
I'm certainly not the type to toot my own horn (oh, who am I kidding? I'm EXACTLY that type!). Anyway, this post, according to Blogger, is #1000. I suppose it's supposed to be something profound. Not gonna happen...
Also, not in the spirit of tooting my horn (that sounds rather wrong, doesn't it?), you should go check out Rachel's post.
