billy john and elton joel...

Er, make that Billy Joel and Elton John. That's who we saw in concert last night in Portland. We opted for the cheap seats behind the stage -- they were close in terms of physical distance but facing the 'wrong' direction. But it actually turned out pretty well! Since the pianos were pointed sideways, we got a nice view of Billy Joel for the entire concert.



We mostly saw the side and back of Elton John's head...



But there were times he did turn around!



Anyway, the old guys still have it. It was a great concert. Even so, I'm considering it just a warm up for (yaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!!) Carole King and James Taylor in May.

I'll bet that was so much fun. But not as much fun as JT and CArole King will be.
