FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHTS: Elton John – Rocket Man (Royal Festival Hall, London 1972)
Elton’s second concert at London’s Royal Festival Hall was an chance for him and his band to perform their newly-recorded album Honky Château in its entirety. This live debut of ‘Rocket Man’ two months before its release as the album’s first single is striking in its freshness and its ability to nearly replicate the studio arrangement on stage. The line-up of Davey (guitar), Dee Murray (bass) and Nigel Olsson (drums) immediately established itself as the “classic” Elton band, solidifying Elton’s studio and stage presence through his most prolific period.
