The Jerusalem Post has observed that unlike some of his colleagues, Elton didn’t cancel his Israeli gig.
Indeed, last night, he made reference to the issue.
“Shalom, we are so happy to be back here! Ain’t nothing gonna stop us from coming, baby,” Elton declared with a pumped fist in the air. “Musicians spread love and peace, and bring people together. That’s what we do. We don’t cherry-pick our conscience.”
Elton then ”turned into a human jukebox for two and-a-half hours,” reported the Post, ” delving into his deep catalogue of classics which included numbers as diverse as Circle of Life and Levon.
Front and back views of Elton at Thursday’s show are below.
