I m so glad he was with us throughout the madness: in his evocative and stylish photos he captured those moments as no other photographer could. -Elton John On October 25 and 26, 1975, Elton John performed two sold-out shows in LA's Dodger Stadium. It would be the largest rock concert of its time and the first time a musical act was performed at the ballpark since The Beatles in 1966. With Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy, the first ever album to debut straight at number one, and the impending release of his next #1 Billboard charts topper, Rock of the Westies, Elton s fame was at an all-time high. The biggest rock star in the world was going to stage two nights in one of America's most beloved and famous venues, and Terry O Neill, the restless photographer who documented The Beatles, David Bowie and The Rolling Stones, was there on stage to make sure posterity would see what thousands experienced for themselves. Through private moments as well as public ones, including backstage exchanges with fans as diverse as Cary Grant and Billie Jean King, O'Neill s Two Days that Rocked the World: Elton John Live at Dodger Stadium creates a visual record of a musician at the peak of his powers."
