Elton John is playing a free concert in West Hollywood. He's in front of the old Tower Records building, a favorite hangout of his when the legendary music store was in business. Show organizers said it will also be streamed on AOL.com.
The concert, the singer said, is a thank you to the city.
The city of West Hollywood has welcomed the Elton John AIDS Foundation and our annual Academy Awards Viewing Party with open arms for many years, providing us with the perfect environment to host a really fun and special evening. We are profoundly grateful for their generous support, so I wanted to do something special just for them by giving our West Hollywood fans and supporters a surprise concert.
