While Elton John is used to performing live in front of thousands, he will instead put on a show to provide relief and entertainment for Americans locked down in their homes during the current health crisis.
Titled, Fox Presents the iHeart Living Room Concert For America, the March 29th broadcast will be a one-hour, commercial-free special celebrating the nation’s resilience against its biggest enemy. The event will feature true top-tier talent from the Backstreet Boys, Billie Eilish, Alicia Keys, Green Day‘s Billie Joe Armstrong, Mariah Carey, Tim McGraw and a number of other stars who’ll be beaming in from the comfort and safety of their respective homes. Performances will be filmed on each artists’ personal cell phones, cameras, and audio equipment in order to ensure the health of all involved.
Using already-planned airspace, the concert will air on Fox during the original slot for what is now a canceled 2020 iHeartRadio Music Awards ceremony – March 29th from 9-10 p.m. EST – and on iHeartMedia radio stations nationwide, as well as on the IHeartRadio app. For those who would like to learn more and receive constant updates, make sure to follow the event’s official site here.
