Elton John Raby Castle 2000

Elton John Raby Castle 2000
eltontix2000 From the Raby Castle website: “Home to Lord Barnard’s family since 1626, Raby is one of the finest medieval Castles in England. Built by the mighty Nevill family in the 14th Century, Raby remained in the Nevill family until 1569 when after the failure of the Rising of the North, the Castle and its lands were forfeited to the Crown. In 1626, Sir Henry Vane the Elder purchased Raby and the Castle has remained in the Vane family ever since.” eltonprog2000 This was a solo concert with Elton and piano in the grounds of Raby Castle, Durham, as part of a tour of stately homes. It had been some 10 years since I last saw Elton in concert. I went with Marie and we really enjoyed it. We had seats close to the front, and a great view. The weather wasn’t too good with a little rain as I recall. The tickets were expensive at £50 each, which seemed a lot at the time. Setlist: Your Song, The Greatest Discovery, Someone Saved My Life Tonight, Daniel, Harmony, Honky Cat, Rocket Man, Tiny Dancer, Philadelphia Freedom, Sacrifice, Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word, I Guess That’s Why They Call It The Blues, Burning Down The Mission, Blue Eyes, Empty Garden, Crocodile Rock. Encore: Don’t Let The Sun Go Down on Me, The Circle of Life, Benny and the Jets, Candle in the Wind.
