Elton John, 'Tumbleweed Connection'

Elton John has no problem devoting nearly his entire set to songs from his 1970s heyday, but for some reason he's balked at jumping on the complete album show bandwagon. He did a tiny handful of Captain Fantastic shows in 2005, but that's it. We'd love to hear any of his albums from 1970 to 1976, but our favorite is Tumbleweed Connection. It's also the one with the most cohesive theme, so such a show makes a lot of sense. He hasn't done "My Father's Gun" or "Amoreena" since the 1970s, but he's got a band full of pros ready to play anything. This year marks not just his 70th birthday, but also his 50th anniversary of working with Bernie Taupin. What better way to celebrate than playing the albums?
