Elton is scheduled to make his QVC debut live from Caesar's Palace on Friday, October 13 at 7 PM (ET). During the one-hour broadcast, he will sing a selection of songs and offer viewers insight into the fascinating story behind his new release, The Captain & The Kid, which is based on his and Bernie Taupin's long, fruitful songwriting partnership.
The Captain & The Kid is a sequel to the 1975 Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy. Not only will QVC customers receive the new disc, but it will be packaged with a special CD compilation of tracks from Elton's recent Fashion Rocks concert performed in New York City .
" Elton John is the definition of a music legend," said Rich Yoegel, director of merchandising for QVC. "This is an amazing chance for QVC viewers to not only hear about the inspiration that went into the creation of The Captain & The Kid, but also to own previously unreleased material from Elton's Fashion Rocks concert performance. We are proud to be the only retailer to bring these opportunities to Elton John fans across the country."
The Captain & The Kid plus bonus CD (QVC Item #E01919) will be available through QVC at 800.345.1515 or www.QVC.com while supplies last.
