Elton John celebrated his 60th birthday on stage Sunday  March 25, making a record-breaking 60th appearance in New York City's Madison Square Garden.

Wearing rose-tinted glasses and a black tail coat, the singer-songwriter performed more than 30 hit songs spanning more than four decades.

He recalled two of his most memorable appearances at the storied Manhattan venue: a 1974 date in which John Lennon joined him on stage for the last time, and a performance following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

Elton John's longtime lyricist Bernie Taupin serenaded him with a chorus of "Happy Birthday," accompanied by comedians Robin Williams and Whoopie Goldberg.

Elton ended his concert with his first hit single, "Your Song." He has sold more than 200 million albums worldwide.
