The concert took place at Lokomotiv Stadium, in Sofia's far northern neighborhoods. We took a long taxi ride to get there, arriving in the midst of a traffic jam of fans heading into the stadium. The location provided places only for some 20,000 fans. We had seats in the 37th row and a good view of the stage.
In short, it was a great concert! Elton and his band performed for 2 1/2 hours without a break, singing hit after hit. Elton spoke to the crowd, saying that this was his first visit to Bulgaria but hopefully he would be back.
