Elton John 1986-10-12 Hollywood Bowl, Los Angeles, CA, US [SBD]

Elton John - 1986-10-12 Los Angeles, CA
Source - Soundboard
Lineage - Silver 2CD set ("Don't Dream It's Over...It's Starting Again") > EAC > WAV > FLAC (Level 8)

This show has it all - a great setlist (with an EXTREMELY rare performance of "Love Song"), superb sound quality and an outstanding performance. This show was approximately two months before the famous Australia concerts where Elton's voice reached it's breaking point and required surgery. His vocal performance here is MUCH better and he hits some nice high notes here and there. EJ's band is amazing here (complete with a horn section), as are the backing vocalists. Below is the band lineup and setlist.
