I agree Piet. I first saw him in 1961 and many times in the 60s, 70s, and 80s right up to 1989. I saw him when he was really rockin'. He's an old man now and 62 years into his first shows he is not worth watching to me. I still like his recordings and even his new ones because his voice and piano are still quite good. As far as his concerts, that ship has sailed.

Here's the full show, for the most part. Jerry appears to be a little more frail her than in recent months , as always The Killer Rocks On!

Jerry Lee Lewis has always been most known as live performer. The fact that he's performing at all in 2018 is astounding, why someone wouldn't want to go see him now, especially when they have seen him countless times? Yes, he's gotten old and frail, but he's still rocking way longer than any of us would have predicted. With Elton John's upcoming retirement it's not out of the question that The Killer outlasts him now. Go see him while you can, because it's still something to hear him play that piano. Nothing sad about it in my view. A life of hard rocking and long nights have taken their toll, no doubt, but I want see him perform when he's 90!

Elton John goes on a 300-date World Tour until 2021. After that he will still play the occassional show. I doubt very much that Jerry will even outlast him, but who knows. Charles Aznavour is still touring the world at 94.

I finally watched the show in its entirety. And unlike many of the shows from some 10 years+ ago, I actually enjoyed it watching. As Wolfgang wrote, he was definitely not on autopilot but quite alert.
He was humorous and his piano playing was actually really good.
Of course, any comparison with shows which took place 30 years ago is pretty useless in my opinion. His voice will not get any better but in that form, I think he actually continue to play the occasional show as it is still worth the money.

Best Wishes

We don't compare the shows, we just liked the old shows better then the shows he's given nowedays. Anyone knows that a man at the age of 82 cannot the give the same shows when he was in his thirties but for some of us the trill is gone when you see the old man behind his piano. No more "Pumpin piano" anymore.
My life will never be the same.

I think the "pumpin piano" is still there, it is the voice which occassionally troubles him.
