The show, called Elton John Live: Farewell from Dodger Stadium, takes place on Sunday, November 20. It will be livestreamed for three hours, starting at 11 PM ET on Disney+.
About not performing at the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 opening ceremony, Lipa explained her decision in an Instagram story, “There is currently a lot of speculation that I will be performing at the opening ceremony of the World Cup in Qatar,” she wrote. “I will not be performing and nor have I ever been involved in any negotiation to perform. I will be cheering England on from afar and I look forward to visiting Qatar when it has fulfilled all the human rights pledges it made when it won the right to host the World Cup. One love, Dua x.”
