Elton John’s tribute songs have become famous, especially his “Candle in the Wind” rendition that was for Princess Diana during her funeral in 1997. Yet again, Elton shows us why he is the best at these types of songs.
At his packed show at Caesars this weekend, he spent some time sharing memories about Prince when they were both in Las Vegas. He said he would see each other in the hotel lobby, share a few minutes together when Prince would be getting back from the clubs, and Elton would be starting his days.
“You were a purple warrior. We loved you. We salute you,” he said, before breaking into his song “I Guess That’s Why They Call It The Blues” as a slideshow of Prince images played on the stage.
