As for 70th birthday concert, it's not like Elton has not kept up his concert performances in recent years, so such a concert would simply be an EJ concert by another name. That is, unless he did something really special, like the recent Joan Baez 75th birthday concert, where the list of guest appearances read like a Who's Who of folk and folk-rock. The other idea would have been to do a concert or concert tour with a symphony orchestra to mark the occasion, except the problem there is that it has already been done ("Live In Australia").

A BT/EJ 50th anniversary something though, I suppose this was at least talked about. Not sure exactly what that entails, though.
Though another thing on my mind, concerning the possible re-release of the 6 remastered albums on vinyl, is the relative scarcity of some of the more recent albums on vinyl. Someone on Facebook today posted a pic of some post-2000 albums on vinyl and said they wished they could find a copy of Peachtree Road for a decent price. I can't recall seeing any recently for less than $300.00. I don't even like that album all that much, no way in heck I'm paying that. Sure wouldn't mind a rerelease of some things that have become rare and can only be found at ridiculous prices, though I am probably dreaming. XD

Couple points: Elton and Bernie did participate in a 50th anniversary forum (there was a clip of Elton performing I Need You To Turn To solo from this) so something is coming. (Honestly, this is the time to do a proper retrospective box set with rarities, lyrics, etc.)

But do be warned - some of those vinyl titles weren't pressed well. The Captain and the Kid is one that comes to mind. Many labels didn't "master" for vinyl, and just used the CD/MP3 masters to cut the vinyl, resulting in poor sound quality. I have made it a point of picking up EJs recent work on vinyl, though, since it does go OOP quickly.
