Elton John Sunset Strip Concert Live Stream: Watch Tower Records Show With Lady Gaga Online!
John’s one-time-only show was only announced on Friday. The music legend cryptically posted on Instagram, “Hello Los Angeles. Are you ready for a BIG surprise?? I will be performing a special show tomorrow! Stay tuned to find out when & where.”
Early Saturday, it was then revealed the concert would be taking place outdoors in the Tower Records parking lot, with the public invited to show up to the West Hollywood spot and watch John perform for free. With the clock ticking down to the show, the British icon wrote on Instagram, “Less than 2 hours to go!!! A big thank-you to the City of West Hollywood for supporting the Elton John AIDS Foundation.”
John, however, left out a huge detail. Lady Gaga is joining him. The pop star broke the news on Twitter, writing, “12pm PT @eltonofficial free show at Tower Records on Sunset Blvd Excited to sing with Elton for everyone see u soon!” She went on to enthusiastically add, “Get your asses to Sunset Blvd Tower Records! 12pm PT Elton John ft Me! Live on the streets of LA!”
According to AOL, which is sponsoring the 60-minute event, “The concert is a show of thanks to the city of West Hollywood for their continued support of the Elton John AIDS Foundation and its Academy Awards Viewing Party over many years. The show is co-presented by AOL BUILD and BBVA Compass bank. Elton will play a jam-packed set of his classic hits, including ‘Crocodile Rock,’ ‘Tiny Dancer,’ ‘Rocket Man,’ ‘Candle In The Wind’ and ‘Your Song,’ as well as new favorites from his newly released album Wonderful Crazy Night.
The show comes just one day before John and his foundation host their annual Oscars party. The live stream is slated to begin at 3 p.m. Eastern Time. Watch below!
