Watch Elton John’s Concert Tonight

posted by Nell Minow

Nothing like this has ever been attempted before!  Tonight, when Elton John plays on a Yamaha Disklavier piano, every touch of his fingers will be replicated at other Disklaviers around the world, and you can watch.

His actual piano keystrokes are then faithfully recreated, note for note, in real time on each of the remote instruments, while the entire orchestra is seen and heard on adjacent monitors, in perfect sync with the remote piano performances.

The whole concert will be broadcast life starting at 8:00 PM (PST), featuring a blockbuster line-up of music industry stars.  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. Elton John will take the stage approximately 10:25 PM (PST).

Check here for more information about how to watch.
