John's historic performance at The Great Theatre less raucous than his typical concerts. He performed solo for a smaller-than-usual audience on the stage that was built more than two millenniums ago.
"With just my piano for company and such a beautiful setting, this was an intimate show that I will never forget," John wrote in a statement.
John began sharing archival concerts of his via YouTube in early-July as a way of entertaining locked down fans worldwide and to support the Elton John AIDS Foundation's COVID-19 Emergency Fund.
Fans are invited to donate via YouTube while watching the show, which premieres Friday, August 7, at 3 p.m. Eastern time.
Last week, John shared one of his personal favorite shows ever, a star-studded 2000 performance from Madison Square Garden — that included guest appearances by Billy Joel, Bryan Adams, Mary J. Blige and others.
