Despite being a fan favourite since its release in 1972, and even becoming a byword for the man himself, ‘Rocket Man’ peaked at #6 in the US charts. Watching this version from the ‘Made In England Tour’ in 1995, though, is like seeing a song reborn. Elton and his six-piece band take the audience in Rio de Janeiro on a journey through soul, funk and into cosmic overdrive! Guitar players Davey Johnstone and John Jorgenson swap acoustic for electric, with Jorgenson even reaching for his saxophone at one point. “I’m a Rocket Man, Rio”, indeed!
