Elton John Live Around the World

Elton News – Watch the ENTIRE CONCERT online or with your Disklavier!

Watch the entire 3+ hour Yamaha 125th Anniversary Dealer Concert, including Elton John, who will now be the final performer at this incredible event. You can enjoy the entire concert online beginning this Friday at 8:00 pm PST, and we expect that Elton will take the stage at approximately 10:25 pm PST.

Joining the “Rocket Man” onstage will be Amy Grant, Chaka Khan, Dave Grusin, Earth, Wind & Fire, David Foster, Dave Koz, James Newton Howard, LEOGUN, Landon Pigg, Lucy Schwartz, Michael McDonald, Sarah McLachlan, Sinbad and Toto. Legendary bass player Nathan East will serve as music director.

If you have a Disklavier player, it will play ONLY DURING THE ELTON JOHN portion. But, since you’re likely staying up very late to witness history in the making, we thought you might enjoy virtually attending the entire show! So you’ll be able to see and hear everything else that happens on stage that night.

Prior to 8 pm PST, tune to the usual RemoteLive™ website and start/engage RemoteLive as always – your piano will “come alive” when Elton John takes the stage! But you’ll be able to hear all performers up until Elton’s set.

Once the concert begins, we plan to offer you several opportunities to confirm that your Disklavier is still connected. While the emcee is talking between some of the performers – we will play a few keys on your piano. This will serve to let you know everything is ready and that your piano will be played by Elton when we reach his portion of the show.

History will be made as Elton John plays pianos around the world at the same time, and we are glad you will be a part of it.

Thanks, and enjoy the show!
