Elton John will be performing a concert for Yamaha dealers as the music instrument company celebrates its 125th anniversary.

The concert is set to take place at Disneyland's Hyperion Theater in Anaheim, Ca on Friday, January 25th 2013.

Elton says of the concert: "I'm constantly astonished by the inventive skills and versatility of the Yamaha team. Not only have they built all my touring pianos for the past 20 years, as well as the wonderful Million Dollar Piano that resides at Caesars Palace, but they've also now perfected the RemoteLive technology, which means that effectively, I can perform the concert live in Anaheim on January 25, live across the Internet and also live in venues worldwide–all at the same time! I am both proud and grateful to be a Yamaha artist and to enjoy the fruits of Yamaha's amazing expertise."

The company sent over these details: Thanks to Yamaha's groundbreaking DisklavierTV, powered by RemoteLive technology, Elton's performance on the Yamaha Disklavier reproducing piano onstage with a 70-piece orchestra will be streamed live over the Internet and simultaneously to remote Disklaviers in many countries around the world.

His actual piano keystrokes are then faithfully recreated, note for note, in real time on each of the remote instruments, while the entire orchestra is seen and heard on adjacent monitors, in perfect sync with the remote piano performances. The locations of the remote performance venues will be announced shortly.

"Elton John is one of the most successful and influential music makers of our time, and Yamaha is thrilled to bring him to a global audience in this history making manner," said Chris Gero, vice president of Yamaha Entertainment Group of America, which is producing the event. "This exciting event will also demonstrate how Yamaha DisklavierTV is forever changing the way in which a live piano concert can be enjoyed in real time around the world."
