Disney+ to Live Stream Elton John Farewell Concert
At the Disney Branded Television’s panel this afternoon at D23, Disney announced that Disney+ will stream Elton John Live: Farewell From Dodger Stadium on November 20th.
Dodger Stadium is the last stop on the American leg of Elton’s “Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour.”
Earlier this year, Disney+ won the rights for the documentary, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road: The Final Elton JohnPerformances And the Years That Made His Legend.
The documentary is said to have unseen concert footage over the past 50 years, journal entries, and present day footage of his family.
I am so excited to have Elton John be apart of Disney+. Elton has been apart of the Disney family since 1994 when he composed several songs from Disney’s The Lion King.
“There are no superlatives left to describe Elton John and his impact on music and culture — he’s simply unrivaled,” said Bob Chapek, CEO of The Walt Disney Company.
I am one of the lucky few who can say that they have seen Sir Elton John in concert more than once.
And now thanks to Disney+, I will be able to share that experience with my own children as my parents did with me so many years ago.
