Top of the Charts - Playing With His Biggest Idol

elton emotional evening

On Thanksgiving 1975, at Madison Square Garden in New York City, Elton experienced another triumphant achievement.

His concert that night was a stellar engagement made even more splendid by the appearance of John Lennon. As the two grasped each other in a hug after singing “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,” Elton murmured into his microphone, “This has been a very emotional evening for me.” In fact, that evening was one of the most emotional ever for Elton. He had been listening to the Beatles for years, and now he was playing alongside one of his idols.
