More About

Elton John has been a superstar for decades. His latest collaborator, Leon Russell, on the other hand, has been something of an obscurity for most of his 40-something-year career, which started as a session musician and featured one semi-hit album, 1972's Carney, and a few other charting records before his success faded at the end of the '70s. The new record from pair, The Union, features both men playing piano and singing. It's a natural partnership, which is probably why it's gotten such rave reviews: Russell has been an inspiration for Sir Elton for many years, and John even opened for him early in his career. The tables have turned. While it's customary for Elton to sell out arenas, Russell has been performing in small clubs like The Rhythm Room. He's got arena-size talent, though, so don't expect him to be blown off the stage by Elton.

Very disapointing show, I wanted to hear Elton John sign his classics not some no name dude at 150 per ticket who I could see for 25 bucks at a local club...don't waste your money

I agree Leon Russel was really hard to listen to because his voice was so high pitched but I liked his music. It was so loud in there the concert was not enjoyable and I could not wait for it to be over.
