Singer Elton John invites fans to an intimate conversation with him, as Facebook Watch will stream “An Evening With Elton John” later this month. The video has TV personality and comedian David Walliams interviewing the veteran singer in London at The Hammersmith Apollo, which was filmed earlier this week, according to Deadline.
John started promoting the upcoming interview on his social media via Facebook. In his post, the singer put up the trailer for the upcoming stream, which releases Monday, Nov. 25, at 7 p.m. GMT/2 p.m. EST on Facebook Watch. (Tune in here.) The event coincides with the October release of his new autobiography titled “ME.”
The book, written alongside journalist Alexis Petridis, recounts John’s life starting with his childhood and leading up to his final tour. The autobiography also covers his drug addiction and health issues. Actor Taron Egerton, who just recently portrayed the singer in the musical biopic “Rocketman,” narrates the audiobook version.
As well as the Facebook Watch interview, John will be also chatting with Graham Norton for BBC One’s documentary “Elton John: Uncensored,” airing Nov. 29. News of the other interview was posted by the singer on his personal MazSight.
John has sold more than 300 million records, establishing him as one of the greatest selling artists. Having collaborated on more than 30 albums, the singer has had more hit singles landing on the top of the charts throughout his career. For his work, he has received five Grammys, an Oscar, and a Golden Globe. John has been involved with fighting against AIDS with his organization, the Elton John AIDS Foundation. He has also been an icon for the LGBTQ+ community.
The British singer-songwriter is currently on his three-year farewell tour consisting of over 300 concerts worldwide. The “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour will run up until the end of 2020.
