BROOKLYN (PIX11)–It’s not Elton John’s first time performing in New York City, but it was the legendary musician’s first time performing on New Year’s Eve in New York City, organizers said.

Fans arrived early outside Barclays Center.

Elton John and his band took the stage just after 10 p.m.

The opening act was “Bright Light Bright Light.”

Organizers said it was a sold out show.

Last year, Billy Joel performed at Barclays Center on New Year’s Eve. In 2012, Coldplay and Jay-Z were here to ring in 2013.
