Elton is launching a weekly archival concert footage series featuring footage from shows throughout his career on his official YouTube channel.
Elton John: Classic Concert Series begins this Friday at noon ET/9 a.m. PT with Live at Playhouse Theatre, Edinburgh, from 1976. Afterwards, a new two-hour concert will premiere on Elton's YouTube channel every Saturday for six weeks. The series will raise funds towards the EJAF in support of COVID relief efforts.
The music-maker says: ''My foundation's COVID-19 Emergency Fund helps frontline partners prepare for and respond to the pandemic and its effects on HIV prevention and care for the most marginalised communities. We cannot jeopardise HIV testing and care during this time or else the results could be disastrous for the 37.5 million people living with HIV. So I'm really happy to connect this YouTube Concert Series to benefit our foundation's urgent COVID response.''
