Elton John Classic Concert Series Sydney Entertainment Centre, Australia 1986

Elton’s 26-date Australian “Tour de Force” with the 88-piece Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in late 1986 was the first of its kind for any rock act. While planning the setlist for the orchestral half of the concert, Elton selected songs from his first few albums, many of which he had not performed live for nearly 15 years, as they featured string and horn arrangements. Well before the tour began, Elton was told by his doctor that he should not use his voice at all (singing or speaking) due to nodules on his vocal cords. In fact, this gave his vocals a raspy quality that only added to the emotion of the songs. The resulting “Live In Australia…” album stayed on the Billboard Top 200 for 41 weeks, the second-longest of any Elton album since 1975. This livestream is available for on-demand replay.

The Elton John: Classic Concert Series is running in support of the Elton John AIDS Foundation’s COVID-19 Emergency Fund to continue HIV prevention and care for the most vulnerable people around the globe during the COVID-19 pandemic. There are 37 million people living with HIV around the world and we cannot lose the gains we’ve made to end the AIDS epidemic during this time.
