Is something like this not the realm for the desperate?

Celine Dion spring to mind?

It's worse than that, James... Sir Elton is only doing this while Celine Dion is away on holiday.

I see where you guys are coming from, but I don't think this is that big of a deal. This is 75 shows over three years or something like that. That's not too many. And it doesn't seem to be an exclusive deal where he is prohibited from performing elsewhere. I would actually like to go to one of these.

Key words here:

" five times a week for five weeks a year in a deal reportedly worth more than $50 million."

Why would he NOT do this?

Today, (Feb 16, 2004) the LA Times reviewed Elton's show and said it was great. Read it at www.latimes.com.
