Tuesday November 22nd was going to be a pretty swell evening, with Elton John playing in the Ziggo Dome, and The Missus and me having tickets. On the way to the (Nordic) restaurant for dinner, The Missus got a call that she landed the job she was after, so it got even better.
We made it to our seats while the intro tape for “Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding” started to roll. That’s probably my favorite Elton John song ever, so we were off to a good start. Mr. John played a lot of hits, two tracks from his latest album Wonderful Crazy Night, and some deep cuts. Good times. The only downside was that they might have turned the volume down a bit, but otherwise, it was a wonderful night.
