In early February 2010 Elton John and Billy Joel set out on another leg of their ever-popular concert series Face to Face.[1] Most of these shows had been rescheduled from the year before when John had contracted E.Coli forcing the pair to cancel the concerts planned for the fall of 2009, Joel was also unwell at the time of the gigs the previous year.[2][3][4][5]

Joel denied rumors in the trade press that he canceled a summer 2010 leg of the tour, claiming there were never any dates booked and that he intended to take the year off.[6] Joel told Rolling Stone magazine: "We'll probably pick it up again. It's always fun playing with him.

Joel stated in 2012 that he would no longer tour with Elton due to the fact that it restrains his setlists.[7][8]
