Titled the Elton John: Classic Concert Series, the first episode will kick off with a 1976 performance from Playhouse Theatre in Edinburgh, and will go through several others all while raising money for charity.

Kickstart your weekend with my Classic Concert Series! For the next 6 weeks, starting this Friday, July 3, a different concert from the archive will be streaming on @YouTube, beginning with my show at the Playhouse Theatre in Edinburgh in 1976. The concert series will raise funds to benefit @ejaf’s COVID-19 Emergency Fund, which helps frontline partners prepare for and respond to the pandemic and its effects on HIV prevention and care for the most marginalized 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. The first concert goes live at 9am (LA) / 12pm (NY) / 5pm (LDN) and is only available for 72 hours, so make sure to tune in! Swipe right to watch the trailer 🚀

Slated for six different weekly sets, each video in the series will run for two hours apiece, and benefit the COVID-19 relief efforts put on through his Elton John AIDS Foundation.

“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,” Elton John stated.

“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.”
