Elton John has dug into his archives for the launch of the Classic Concert Series on his YouTube channel.

The first show, Live at the Playhouse Theatre, Edinburgh – September 17th, 1976, goes up on Friday, July 3rd at 11am and will be available for 72 hours. A new two-hour live set will be posted every Saturday for the next six weeks.

The Elton John: Classic Concert Series is running in support of the Elton John AIDS Foundation’s COVID-19 Emergency Fund to continue HIV prevention and care for the most vulnerable people around the globe during the COVID-19 pandemic. You can donate on YouTube while watching the show.

Elton says, “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 marginalized communities. We cannot jeopardize 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.”
