Pop star Elton John, who has had hit songs for four decades and counting, recently celebrated his 60th birthday in grand style with a gala concert at New York's Madison Square Garden.

It was John's record-setting 60th gig in that storied building and was attended by a host of A-list celebrities and broadcast live all over the world.

Fittingly, you'll be able to own it for yourself soon.

"Elton 60: Live at Madison Square Garden" is easily the most anticipated Elton John DVD release in recent memory, and it will be available in the United States on Sept. 25.

In keeping with the grand, long-standing tradition of John spoiling his fans, this DVD will be like none other.

The two-disc package features all 33 songs on the Garden set list, including classics such as "Your Song," "Crocodile Rock" and "Saturday Night's Alright (For Fighting)" and rare live cuts including the appropriately named opener, "Sixty Years On," plus "Madman Across the Water," "Ballad of a Well-Known Gun" and "Roy Rogers."

But that's not even close to the whole package.

The DVD set will also be loaded with special extra features, including a healthy helping of "Live, Rare and Unseen" concert tracks, such as a 1970 version of "Border Song" from Swiss television, BBC renditions of "Tiny Dancer" and "Levon" from 1971, and a mini-set of selected "New York Stories" performances culled from John's seemingly endless catalogue of live performances in Gotham and album tracks that mention the Big Apple.

Fans will also be able to purchase a collector's box that will include the DVD set and a bonus live CD from various classic John tours, and the collector's box also will include a 72-page booklet with a souvenir poster and more.
