Last week, the Rock And Roll Hall of Famer launched a new weekly archival concert footage series entitled Elton John: Classic Concert Series, featuring some of his most greatest shows from around the globe. Premiering on John's YouTube channel every Saturday for six weeks, the series raises funds to the Elton John AIDS Foundation, and its continued efforts in battling the COVID-19 pandemic.
