Elton John (73) puts old concerts of himself online every Friday from Friday. In this way, the singer wants to raise money for his Elton John AIDS Foundation.
Elton wants to use the proceeds to ensure that prevention and care for AIDS patients is not snowed under during the corona crisis. According to him, this could have ‘disastrous consequences’.
The first show to appear on YouTube is a concert that Elton gave in 1976 during his heyday in Edinburgh at the Playhouse Theater. The next six weeks will be followed by shows from 1986 (Australia), 1989 (Italy), 1995, (Brazil), 2000 (United States), and 2001 (Turkey).
