TWO-HOUR CONCERT SPECIAL FEATURES FAMED MUSICIAN'S FIRST EVER PERFORMANCE AT RADIO CITY

ELTON PERFORMS WITH THE BROOKLYN AUGMENTED YOUTH CHOIR AND A FULL ORCHESTRA WITH STUDENTS FROM LONDON'S ROYAL ACADEMY OF MUSIC AND NEW YORK'S THE JULLIARD SCHOOL

PREMIERES SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27 AT 8 PM

NEW YORK -- November 4, 2004 -- This fall Elton John comes to Bravo in a special two-hour concert, "Elton John at Radio City Presented by Verizon," airing Saturday, November 27 from 8:00 - 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. In this premiere broadcast, Elton John offers up his greatest hits, some brand new cuts and even a few lesser-known tunes from his vast catalog of songs. No one connects with a live audience like England's master entertainer, and Elton John uses all of his wit, charm and showmanship in this performance to make it an event for the ages.

The concert was taped this past July at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, and marked Elton John's first visit to the famed music hall in his 43-year career. The popularity of the Hall of Fame singer/songwriter has spanned both decades and musical genres with hits such as "Rocket Man," "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road," and "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me."

This historic performance also marks the first time in North America that Elton performs on stage accompanied by a full symphony orchestra and choir. In an exciting international collaboration, the orchestra features students from The Royal Academy of Music in London and New York's The Julliard School along with The Augmented Brooklyn Youth Chorus. Elton includes hits such as "Philadelphia Freedom," "Tiny Dancer," "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me," "Your Song," and "Saturday Night," as well as songs from his new LP "Peachtree Road," set for its US release on November 9 ? and the only way to get front row seats is to watch it all on Bravo.
