When we saw the original Yellow Brick Road concert as two young OSU students, we felt it was the best concert we had ever seen. Just over 45 years later, we still felt the same way - until we saw the 2018 concert.  I hope I was able to capture some of the magic of this incredible event. We have seen an incredible number of wonderful shows, but Sir Elton John still tops them all.
