ICYMI: Elton John Performed A Pop-Up Show On The Sunset Strip

Academy Awards weekend is always a busy one for Elton John, who’s been hosting a charity Oscar party the past 24 years to benefit his AIDS charity, but this past Saturday (February 27th) he one-upped himself by performing a show on the famed Sunset Strip…literally. 

Sir Elton had part of Sunset by the shuttered Tower Records location in West Hollywood shut down to perform an hour-long show that was absolutely free!   The performance was streamed live on AOL, but Elton’s official YouTube page posted a few videos from the show, including a performance with Lady Gaga.
