Elton John In Concert

Legendary artist Elton John returns to the stage in a concert that includes his greatest hits and songs from his new album, Diving Board.

The new special “Elton John in Concert” will premiere at 9pm Saturday, Oct. 5 on WTIU.

PBS announced the world television premiere of ELTON JOHN IN CONCERT, a new special featuring the legendary musician in an exclusive and intimate performance taped in the beautiful surroundings of the BBC’s famous Radio Theatre in the heart of West London. The concert special showcases the multi-Grammy Award-winning superstar performing songs from his new album, The Diving Board, mixed with classic songs from his extensive repertoire of hits.

Produced by T Bone Burnett, The Diving Board is Elton John’s first solo studio album in seven years, and features 12 new songs written with longtime lyricist Bernie Taupin, as well as three piano interludes composed by John. “It’s the simplest and most piano-driven record I’ve ever made,” John told BBC Radio 2 in an interview on September 11, 2013, the day of the concert.

Taped before an audience of 300 fans selected to win tickets from over 79,000 hopefuls, ELTON JOHN IN CONCERT includes these and other performances:

“Bennie and the Jets”
“Tiny Dancer”
“Home Again”
“Oscar Wilde Gets Out”
“Goodbye Yellow Brick Road”
