ELTON JOHN: LIVE AT WEMBLEY 1977
This special Elton John charity concert at Wembley Arena - then called the Empire Pool, Wembley - was originally shown on BBC1 on a November evening in 1977 and shortened to 50 minutes to fit in between Are You Being Served? and an episode of Panorama.
The concert famously saw Elton announce his retirement from live touring - a commitment that fans everywhere were happy to see him eventually break.
Now, using extra footage from the BBC archives, this longer version of the show is being screened for the very first time, restoring some classic Elton performances of songs like Benny and the Jets, Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me and Don’t Go Breaking My Heart.
This new extended version also sees Elton joined onstage by fellow music legend Stevie Wonder for a special and incredibly rare guest appearance. (02:01:50)
