Live at the Garden [Revisited]: Elton John with Special Guest John Lennon November 28, 1974
21 Jan

On November 28, 1974 (Thanksgiving Day), Elton John appeared LIVE at Madison Square Garden. Earlier that year Elton John recorded “Whatever Gets You Through The Night” with John Lennon – he sang and played piano on the recording. While in the studio, Elton bet John that the song would top the charts, and such was Lennon’s skepticism that Elton secured from him a promise to appear on stage at one of his performances should the record indeed hit number one. When the record did achieve that feat (This was Lennon’s only solo number 1 single in the United States during his lifetime), Lennon was a surprise guest at John’s Thanksgiving performance at Madison Square Garden. It was his last major concert appearance. Lee Lessack and Johnny Rodgers, along with special guest Jonathan Hawkins – recreate that iconic set list
