SIR ELTON JOHN HAS RECENTLY ACTED IN MADRID WITH RAY COOPER



Wearing in red honouring the Roja (the Spanish football team), winner of the last World Cup Soccer, Elton John was in Madrid performing in an exciting concert with the tickets sold out a long time ago. His last concert in Madrid took place in summer 2007.

During nearly three hours concert and in front of more than 9.000 people, singing songs as “Rocket man”, “Philadelphia freedom” , “Your song” o “Sixty years on”, he became the master of the Palacio de los Deportes (“Sports Palace”, where the venue took place).

He started taking over the concert when saying: “Buenas noches, Madrid. Estoy muy contento de estar hoy en esta ciudad tan maravillosa. Hoy voy vestido de rojo en honor a vosotros, los campeones del mundo” (“Good night Madrid. I am very happy of staying here tonight in this wonderful city. Today I have come wearing in red to honour you, the greatest team in the World Cup 2010”).

And even along the concert he also wanted to perform in the piano the famous Spanish and very well known song “Que viva España”.

In a part of the concert he was accompanied by Ray Cooper (The Who, Eric Clapton, rolling Stones) after 15 years of their last tour together. This time they performed hits like “Don’t let the sun go down on me” or “I’m still standing”. They started touring in August and they’ll keep touring in more places like New York in October, 19th. In his 40 years career, Elton John (63 years old) has sold 250 million copies.

Unfortunately (because this singer has always been one of my favourites) I couldn’t go to this concert, but to relieve that a little here I leave some of  the songs performed in Madrid, for more Elton John's fans (apart from me) to enjoy!

"Rocket man"


"They call it the blues"

"Your song"
