Central Park Concert Was Held On This Day, In 1980

Written by Chief Editor.

38 years ago today, Elton played Central Park in New York City.

You can also catch portions of the show online. This includes Elton's performance of Someone Saved My Life Tonight, which has been posted by drummer Nigel Olsson on his Facebook page:
