Sir Elton John spoke in a recent interview with Record Collector and talked about his concert setlists as he shares his feelings about them.
In the conversation, Elton John mentioned how amazing to have such great songs to play on the stage and said that he is so lucky about it. However, there is a downside for Elton about this topic.
Elton pointed out that there is a point in time where he thinks he doesn’t really want to play them anymore because he is burned out of playing the same songs more often on live.
Because of that, Elton wants to play different great songs from his career instead of playing only top-hit songs. He stated that it feels like he is going to kill himself while singing these same songs over and over again.
Here is what Elton John said:
“I’m lucky to have so many great songs to play every night. But there is a point in time where you think, ‘I don’t really want to play this anymore.
There are things like ‘Original Sin’ or ‘(Gotta Get a) Meal Ticket’ that I haven’t really played before – not enough anyway. But if I have to go back and play ‘Crocodile Rock’ again, it’s like, ‘I’m gonna kill myself.’
So, after I’ve finished this tour, I don’t want to play some of these songs any more. I’d like to do something like Kate Bush, where I can do a show and play some of these songs that are deep cuts.”
