Elton has finished the second leg of his US Solo Tour 1999 with a show at the Providence Civic Center on June 19, 1999. He had started started the tour at Centennial Garden in Bakersfield, CA on May 21, 1999. All shows usually lasted up to three hours.

 

Again, Elton experimented on the set list every other show, surprising even the hardcore fans that are there almost every night. Beside the songs listed in the following, Elton is reported having rehearsed Amazes Me, Come Down In Time and Believe. Maybe that's something to look forward to for the European shows.

 

Surprisingly, Elton replaced The Last Song with Candle In The Wind during the show at University of Wyoming's Arena-Auditorium on June 1, 1999.
