According to a post on Harris’ Instagram, it was the kids’ first concert. The gig at New York’s Madison Square Garden was, meanwhile, the last date on the Rocket Man’s farewell tour.
A sideshow of photos online show Harris, Burtka and their twins, Gideon and Harper, hanging out with Elton backstage before enjoying the concert with his husband, David Furnish.
‘We are beyond grateful to consider this artist and genius a friend. His husband is remarkable, his children divine. Thank you for the spectacular memories, good Sir’, Neil Patrick Harris wrote on Instagram.

Can’t stop thinking about watching Elton at @thegarden last week. Kids’ first concert, Elton’s last. We are beyond grateful to consider this artist and genius a friend.

Concerts and holidays
The two families have been close for a while.
The families shared photos of them dining at the famous Club 55 beach club and restaurant. Elton and Furnish are fathers to five-year-old Elijah and seven-year-old Zachary.
Elton and Furnish have been together since 1993. Harris’ relationship with Burtka, meanwhile, began in 2004.
They originally became engaged in 2006, but they kept it secret until same-sex marriage became legal in New York in 2011.
Their two twins were born via surrogate mother in 2010.
