I like them both!! Elton more! Elton helping on Billy's songs would be great ! Not sure about Billy helping on Elton's songs. Wish it were in the Majestic, although don't know about Acoustics for it. But, this is a biggie!! Think of all those songs!! Thanks Sapphire !!

The thing I was struck by when I heard about this show today is how they are both artists who performed "final" concerts and swore that they were done touring.

This concert should be billed as : "Dueling Pianos" not face to face!

Yes, it was early 90's, probably 94. In the Alamodome. And it was a GREAT concert!! We also saw Paul McCartney and Wings (they opened the Alamodome).

I will be online when tix go on sale, but usually when I try that I have no luck. I'm sure the post sellout ebay prices will be outrageous.

I saw Elton in concert in L.A. several years ago and was one of the best concerts ever. It lasted three hours. Just awesome.

I saw them back in the early 90's at Rice University here in Houston. I went for Elton--and left loving Billy Joel a WHOLE lot more. Elton was...dare I say.... *yawn* dull? Billy Joel knows how to put on a show.

I never thought I'd say that!
