What a way to say goodbye! Sir Elton John brought the magic when he performed to a massive crowd last month.

The legendary Elton John sure made up for the rain with an incredible performance under the roof on 4 February. The rocket man played an impressive three hour set, stopping only to thank the audience and to speak on issues close to his heart. 

All of the big hits were there: the party starter Benny and the Jets, the ballad I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues, the sing-along Tiny Dancer, and the cellphone-waving Candle In The Wind were just a few of the crowd favourites.

Having the chance to say goodbye to the man who put the Stadium on the map for concerts made a wonderful show that much more special.

Check out some of our photos from the concert below.
