The Dackman on the debut of Elton John:
Elton John‘s U.S. debut was 45 years ago today. It was a six-night sold-out run at the Troubadour in West Hollywood on Aug. 25, 1970.
John opened with “Your Song,” his breakthrough single, then continued through a set that also included “Sixty Years On,” “Border Song,” “Take Me to the Pilot,” “Country Comfort” and “Burn Down the Mission.” The latter two songs wouldn’t arrive in stores until October’s Tumbleweed Connection. “Bad Side of the Moon,” also part of his show, had only appeared as the B-side to the “Border Song” single. He covered the Rolling Stones and Beatles, too.
Critics, including the Los Angeles Times‘ Robert Hilburn, hailed John’s arrival as a new force on the music scene. “Tuesday night at the Troubadour was just the beginning,” Hilburn wrote. “He’s going to be one of rock’s biggest and most important stars.”
John turned down the opportunity to make his debut a part of a package with Jeff Beck, after the former Yardbirds guitarist who reportedly demanded 90 percent of the earnings.
