How to Watch Elton John’s YouTube Concert Series

Elton John is bringing some of his biggest hits and most iconic performances home. The beloved singer and songwriter announced today that he’s launching a new virtual musical event, Elton John: Classic Concert Series. 

John will post a new concert performance every week, ranging from 1968 to 2001. His new series will raise money for the Elton John AIDS Foundation to support coronavirus relief efforts.

“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 marginalized communities” he said in a press release today. “We cannot jeopardize 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 new series will feature John’s most celebrated songs, like “Rocket Man,” “Daniel,” “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” and “Bennie and the Jets.”
