Elton John’s farewell tour is on hold, but he’s giving fans a chance to see some older concerts from his nearly 50-year career. He announced the Elton John: Classic Concert Series on his website.

Beginning this Friday, July 3 at 12 pm ET  exclusively on YouTube, the series will premiere with Live at the Playhouse Theatre, Edinburgh from 1976. The show has never been made available digitally and it will only be online for 72 hours.

The Elton John: Classic Concert Series supports 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. Per Elton’s site, “You can donate on YouTube whilst watching the show.” Watch the show here.
