Elton John performed live from Paris for Global Citizen Live, a 24-hour worldwide fundraising event with a mission to “defend the planet and defeat poverty,” according to the organization.
For his portion of the show, Sir Elton — performing beneath the City of Lights’ iconic Eiffel Tower — delivered a selection of some of his biggest hits.
The 74-year-old rock legend, wearing a glittering green suit, held nothing back during his performance, which found him accompanying himself on piano without his backing band.
In addition to his signature song “Rocket Man”, he also performed two downright iconic tracks from the early 1970s, “Tiny Dancer” and “Your Song”.
