“Goodbye Yellow Brick Road,” hello, Sunset Strip. Elton John announced early Saturday morning that he would perform a free hourlong concert at noon Saturday in West Hollywood.
The show, which organizers said would also be streamed live on AOL.com, will take place in front of the old Tower Records building, a favorite John hangout back in the day.
John said he planned the concert as a thank you to the city.
The concert will include some of John’s greatest hits, along with tunes from his latest album, “Wonderful Crazy Night.”
John and his husband, David Furnish, will host their annual viewing party for the Oscars on Sunday in West Hollywood Park.
Times reporter Randy Lewis will tweet live from the event: @RandyLewis2.
UPDATE: Lady Gaga confirms on twitter that she will also be at the live show.
