HBO has landed exclusive domestic rights to telecast a concert stop on the current Elton John-Billy Joel world tour, capturing the two at their June 20 stop in Vienna, Austria, from the Praterstadion.
“Face to Face: Live in Vienna” will find the piano-playing artists facing each other at center stage and seated at their respective grands. Show includes sets by Joel and his band and by John and his band, with the two combining for a grand finale. Focus will be on classic material.
The “Face to Face” tour kicked off March 4 in Perth, Australia, and moves on to New Zealand and Japan before concluding over the summer in Europe.
