LONDON (CelebrityAccess) – Facebook has inked an exclusive distribution partnership with UK publisher Pan Macmillan, Rocket Entertainment and Waterstones to stream the full-length feature An Evening with Elton John on its on-demand video service Facebook Watch.
The video, which was filmed at The Hammersmith Apollo in London earlier this week, will help John promote his autobiography Me, published by Pan Macmillan, and sees the music legend sitting down with Britain’s Got Talent judge, David Walliams, for an intimate conversation about his life, book, and career.
Sibyl Goldman, vice president of global entertainment partnerships at Facebook said: “Elton has over 6 million followers globally on Facebook, and through our platform he offers a unique glimpse into his life and uses it to celebrate his musical milestones with fans.”
John said of the project: “It has been great sitting down with my dear friend David and reflecting on my book and career. It was a really enjoyable conversation, and I’m delighted that my fans around the world who couldn’t get to the event will be able to watch it on Facebook Watch.”
The full-length feature will be available exclusively on Facebook Watch on Monday, November 25, with a fan-attended ‘Premiere’ hosted on the platform at 7pm GMT.
