As a fashion plate, Elton is the Liberace of rock. His pink dust-mop do, chandelier earring and Mozart outfit are more entertaining than most of the songs in the first half of his show. But in the second half, when he sings his oldies with the Melbourne Symphony, the tempo slows down and my ears perk up.
