'Elton 60: Live at Madison Square Garden' -- pre-release buzz
Universal Music has announced their debut Blu-ray title, 'Elton 60: Live at Madison Square Garden,' for release on December 4, 2007:

Retail is $24.95.

(Note that Universal Music is owned by a different company than Universal Studios, hence the are completely separate and not HD DVD exclusive.)

I think it's December 2007 Peter.


Great title, glad to see Universal Music stepping into the game.

Hmmmm, so is Universal slowly coming over to the Blu-ray side?

Not really. If I remember correctly, Universal Music Group has been blu-ray supporter since the start.

You see, Universal Music Group is still wholly owned by Vivendi but Universal Studios is owned by General Electric (80%) and Vivendi (20%). So basicly they are separate companies.

If this show is anything like the concert I went to a few weeks ago. It will be a great disk!! I saw him in Ft Myers FL on November 11th. It was a great show I was about 47 rows back from the stage. That show was about 2 1/2 hours non stop except for the 5 min he signed autographs. I will definitely pick this up.

My wife and I went to opening night of his show at Ceaser's in Vegas. It was awesome, got to walk down the red carpet and everything. He really is an incredible musician and fantastic live! I plan to get this disk.

I caught the end of this when it was on TV and it looked really good... If it's anything like his "One Night Only" performance on the Dream Ticket DVD set, this is going to be one hell of a concert...

EDIT: $16.95 on Amazon for a 3.5 hour concert... No need to wait for the PQ/AQ rating on this one...

This is great news to have the first Universal Music HD release in blu soon. I am not a huge Elton fan but Universal has many great artists under contract, so there is a lot to potentially look forward to.
