Elton John 2016-07-12 Anfiteatro Pompei Italy

A Live and Direct FM radio broadcast by "Radio2Live", Radio2 RAI [second channel of italian national radio] from Anfiteatro Romano in Pompei, Italy, on monday 12 July 2016, 21:02 hours [CET]
and that's the same settings where Pink Floyd shot "live at pompei"
The usual band include Davey Johnstone (Musical Director, Guitars, Mandolin, Banjo, Vocals), Kim Bullard (Keyboards), Matt Bissonette (Bass and Vocals), John Mahon (Percussion and Drums, Vocals), Nigel Olsson (Drums and Vocals)

WARNING: in italian radio customes the DJ speaks a lot in-between songs. And I mean a lot.. His/Her purpose is to introduce songs with bits of bio and translate what the artists say, or to describe to radio listeners what's happening on stage. It may gets VERY annoying, and trust me it does, thus we might consider this recording ONLY FOR COMPLETISTS. But the songs, the actual music, are (usually) not spoken over in the middle of them. It has to be noted that italian djs are on the whole adviced to talk that much by the same record companies to prevent bootlegging.
there is a small signal droput along the set

Notes: Due to the increased security (precaution due to the recent events that happened in Brussels), there was a delay in getting into the arena (using metal detectors and pat-downs). The recording misses the first few minutes of Funeral For A Friend - but this recording is otherwise complete. The quality is excellent overall and captures the atmosphere really well. The place was completely sold out and this was my first Elton John show (and won't be my last). It was the best concert I've attended to date!
