Los Angeles Times wrote on Jan. 23, 2019: “You have to love Elton John’s idea of a sizzle reel. As shown on an enormous screen Tuesday night at Staples Center…the carefully edited video package synchronized John’s performance of his song “I’m Still Standing” to highlights from his half-century-long career. We saw him accepting an Academy Award. We saw him onstage in his famously bedazzled Dodgers uniform. And we saw that time a few years ago when he tried to sit down at a tennis match — then immediately tumbled out of his chair. John’s inclusion of the embarrassing moment was in keeping with the sense of humor that’s always distinguished the singer’s work.”
Rolling Stone wrote on Sept. 9, 2018: “Elton John followed with a parade of mega-hits, including “Daniel,” “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me,” “I’m Still Standing” and an inevitable “Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting” that had a fun video of famous movies fights featuring Raiders of the Lost Ark, Airplane! and Kung Fu Panda.”
