Elton John is a music legend and we’ve been trying to arrange a live session with him for MANY years.

Finally, our dreams became reality! While rehearsing for his upcoming tour, he invited us into the gorgeous Wiltern Theatre to record an exclusive 6-song set.

For his 33rd studio album”Wonderful Crazy Night“, produced by T Bone Burnett, Elton reunited with musicians he’s played with for decades. Watching them play live, you can see the comfort and ease only decades of collaboration can bring to the stage.

They jammed out on fan favorites like Levon (“Madman Across the Water”), Burn Down the Mission (“Tumbleweed Connection”), Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters (“Honky Chateau”) and lit up the stage with fresh energy behind “Wonderful Crazy Night”, the ballad Blue Wonderful, and the upbeat single “Looking Up”.

Tune-in here (kcrw.com/eltonjohn) February 3rd to watch this special concert, his first US live radio session behind this album.
