My wife and I went to Charlotte, North Carolina this past week for our 20th wedding anniversary. The main purpose of our trip was to see Elton John in concert. We don’t go to very many concerts. In fact, it has been over a decade since we had both attended a concert together. So Elton John’s farewell tour seemed appropriate for our anniversary trip together as we both really like Elton John’s music. Of course one of my favorite songs of all time is “Rocketman.”

Elton John is 72 years old, and he managed to pull off a nearly 3 hour set list with no intermission. He left the stage for about 4 minutes to change clothes but that was it. Amazing.

Here is a live version of “Rocketman” from Las Vegas earlier this year on YouTube, enjoy...
