📑 Elton John live review – Rocket Man reaches the stars on last ever trip

Bookmarked Elton John live review – Rocket Man reaches the stars on last ever trip by an author (the Guardian)

There are notes he can no longer reach, cold or not: that magical “magaziiine” in Bennie and the Jets, or the chorus of Tiny Dancer, which is taken by percussionist John Mahon with Elton harmonising. The tradeoff is that his deeper register has taken on rich, worn colours that don’t come across in the earlier recordings.

Ben Beaumont-Thomas provides a reflection on Elton Johns final tour. He shares some of the changes and evolution to his voice and music. Sting is another artist who has adjusted his music:

The former The Police star has reimagined a string of early tunes for his upcoming project, titled My Songs, because he wanted to put a new twist on the tracks, now his vocals have more “texture”.

It was interesting watching the Whitney Houston documentary and the way in which her voice evolved over time.
