''Classic Concert'' News

Some of Elton's concerts will soon be available to stream.

 
The 73-year-old has teamed up with YouTube to make six of his most memorable shows available to stream for 72 hours each. The series is raising funds towards the luminary's AIDS charity in support of COVID-19 relief efforts.
 
Elton said: ''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.''
 
The six-week special, Elton John: Classic Concert Series, began last week with Live at Playhouse Theatre Edinburgh from 1976, and will continue on Saturday, July 11, with Sydney Entertainment Centre, Australia from 1986.
