Music superstars across all genres are coming together for a special concert event honoring the career of Sir Elton John.
The show, dubbed Elton John: I’m Still Standing – A GRAMMY® Salute, will take over The Theater at Madison Square Garden on January 30—just two days after the 60th annual Grammy Awards air live from MSG. John’s remarkable 50-year career will be celebrated in stunning fashion, with special appearances by John Legend, Keith Urban, Sam Smith, Miley Cyrus, Maren Morris, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, Little Big Town, Miranda Lambert, Kesha and more.
John is now the latest music legend to be honored in a GRAMMY® and Recording Academy™ sponsored event, joining the ranks of Stevie Wonder, The Beatles, Frank Sinatra, The Bee Gees and more. The concert will be recorded for a CBS television special which will air at a later date.
Throughout his lengthy career, John has won five Grammys and put out one of the most impressive discographies in music history, consisting of over 30 albums and nearly 60 top 40 hits in the U.S. On top of his tremendous accomplishments as an artist, the U.K. native also notched both Academy and Tony Awards for his work as a composer, humanitarian awards for his philanthropy work, and the prestigious Kennedy Center Honor for his overall contribution to American arts and culture.
The famed musician is slated to perform alongside the major names participating in the tribute show, though it marks his final East Coast gig for quite some time. John’s performance schedule through the spring of 2018 is dedicated solely to the final leg of his long-running Las Vegas residency show, The Million Dollar Piano.
