Barcelona

Live in Barcelona captures the hectic energy of Elton John's 1992 world tour but drops several of the highlights, including a rare live performance of his classic album cut "All the Girls Love Alice." Still, at two hours, there's enough to sate both hard-core and casual fans, especially since much of the best material remains: the emotional opening, "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me"; poignant versions of "The One" and "The Last Song"; and the showstopping cover of Queen's final anthem, "The Show Must Go On" (Queen's vocalist Freddie Mercury had died only a few months before the tour began). Visually, this was also an historic show: Gianni Versace designed the stage set and Elton's costumes. While not obvious to the viewer, Versace's contribution gets some play in the accompanying 50-minute documentary about John's The One album, videos, and subsequent tour; it includes interviews with Elton, lyricist Bernie Taupin, guitarist Davey Johnstone, and Versace himself, along with rare rehearsal footage. --Kevin Filipski
