While a select group of 2,000 Yamaha dealers will be able to experience the concert event onsite at the Hyperion Theater, located in nearby Disneyland California Adventure Park, the concert will be streamed around the world via the Yamaha and Elton John websites.
The concert begins at 8pm Pacific Standard Time, Friday, January 25th, with a bevy of guest performers, including Amy, Grant, Chaka Khan, Dave Grusin, Earth, Wind & Fire, David Foster, Dave Koz, and more... Elton John is expected to appear on stage at about 10:25pm PST.
The other star of the show will an internet-linked DisklavierTV piano. As Elton John plays, similar Disklavier pianos located in select venues around the World will also play. In other words, viewers and listeners present at the locations will hear a real piano playing live as Elton John plays back in Anaheim, just as if the famed musician was there in person.
This event should be a great example of the merging of live musical performance with video and audio streaming technology.
