Set your TiVo or DVR. That is, set your television recording devices if you can't watch this monumental occasion as it unfolds live. Elton John and Leon Russell will appear in concert together at the Beacon Theatre in New York City to showcase their new studio album, The Union, on October 19 at 8 PM ET. The much-anticipated performance will air live on Fuse, Madison Square Garden's national music television network. The two legends will take the stage for "Fuse Presents: Elton John and Leon Russell Live From the Beacon Theatre," which will be available to fans across the U.S. with limited commercial interruptions. Make some popcorn and turn the sound up.
The show will feature songs from The Union, which hits stores the same day, as well as a selection of classics and hits from their individual careers. For this concert, Elton and Leon will be accompanied by musicians from The Union studio sessions.
Recorded live in the studio, The Union was produced by T Bone Burnett and features a variety of musical genres from R&B, soul, gospel, country, pop and rock. Music icons Neil Young and Brian Wilson provide guest vocals on the 14-track record along with legendary R&B organist Booker T. Jones, steel guitarist Robert Randolph and a 10-piece gospel choir. Whew.
