Where I do give him credit is he throws a bone every tour. They're largely similar but stuff like Bite Your Lip and many others do occasionally pop out. Its usually once or twice, but just saying he doesn't HAVE to do it at all. So he does mix it up, just not within a tour.

Indeed...in fact, there were six songs I heard last month that he didn't play the last time I saw him in 2014. Tour to tour, he's done a pretty good job in changing things up, and I've gotten to hear most of my personal favorites (deep cuts) over the years. And he would always throw in two or three songs from his latest album - and once, I recall, in 2005, he opened the show with eight straight songs from his recent "Peachtree Road" album - kind of crazy, but fortunately I knew the album and the songs were good, but the you could tell the audience was getting a bit restless...he didn't disappoint, though, by following up with close to two hours of familiar stuff!

Some added bonuses this tour are a couple of new instrumental jams (Levon with the percussion back-and-forth), plus the mere presence of Ray Cooper (Indian Sunset is such a highlight this tour). I've only seen Ray once with Elton (two-man show in 1994), so it was cool to finally see him as part of the full band.

I really like the new song from the movie "(I'm Gonna) Love Me Again". I hope it gets added to the setlist later this year.

Elton is due to be in Tampa, Florida on November 4. He had to reschedule from last year due to illness. I cannot believe the prices of the tickets (through brokers of course.) They are in the range of Stones tickets. Same situation with Queen and Adam Lambert who will be in Tampa in August. All my money is gone on my three Stones shows so I can't consider Elton or Queen.
