You need to fix Bennie and the Jets. It was written by Elton and Bernie. I saw this show in Houston it was fantastic.

Yes, that was one terrific show! I'm so glad I got a chance to see it.

Hi J.R., Thanks for posting the July 21st setlist. It is much appreciated. Although, I do think you left out "The Bitch Is Back" and "You May Be Right" from the set they did together at the end of the show.
Take care,
P.S. You can read my review of the show here:

One more thing J.R........
Chainsaw was a member of the road crew (a guitar tech), and not really a band member.
Take care.
