NEW YORK CITY — The Rocketman will be taking to the stage again on Friday. Sort of. Five-time Grammy winner Elton John will stream a rebroadcast of his Madison Square Garden concert held in 2000 to help raise funds for charity.

The free show will premiere on Friday at 1 p.m. as a part of his Classic Concert Series on Youtube, just one day after the Rocketman celebrated 30 years of sobriety.

 

As all major touring acts came to a halt because of COVID-19, John’s ‘Farewell, Yellow Brick Road’ tour was canceled. However, fans still have a chance to catch six monumental performances from his decades of touring as they are re-broadcast by the online video giant.

While the Elton John Classic Concert Series series can be stream entirely free on Youtube, fans are encouraged to donate to COVID-19 Fund for the Elton John AIDS Foundation

John says this week’s performance comes from a special place in his career. Madison Square Garden has been one of Elton’s favorite places to perform. He’s rocked crowds there for an impressive 70 shows.

In a tweet early Thursday morning he said, “I’m really excited for this week’s Classic Concert Series stream – one of the most memorable concerts of my career.”

 

This specific performance at MSG in New York City included guest features by Billy Joel, Mary J. Blige, Ronan Keating, Bryan Adams, Anastacia, and Kiki Dee. 

After tomorrow’s premiere, the concert will be available to re-watch for the following seven days.
