Elton John will ring in 2015 with a live performance during Dick Clark‘s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. While Ryan Seacrest and the main stage will be located in Times Square, Sir Elton will be across the river in Brooklyn, singing his hit single, “I’m Still Standing” during his concert at the Barclays Center.
This marks the first time John has performed in New York on New Year’s Eve and his performance is set to take place soon after the ball drops. John joins a long list of performers already scheduled to appear throughout the night in what Seacrest is promising to be the biggest live music celebration in the show’s four-decade history.
As TheWrap previously reported, ABC’s New Year’s Eve festivities will be headlined by Taylor Swift, as well as performances by One Direction, Charli XCX, Meghan Trainor, Florida Georgia Line, Magic! and Idina Menzel.
Jenny McCarthy returns as co-host for her fourth year from New York while on the west coast, Fergie will be back for a ninth year to host the Billboard Hollywood Party as well as perform her single “L.A.Love (la la.)”
Also scheduled to appear live from Nashville are Gavin DeGraw and Lady Antebellum, who will perform at Music City’s New Year’s Eve Bash.
“Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2015” is produced by Dick Clark productions with Ryan Seacrest, Allen Shapiro and Mike Mahan serving as executive producers, and Barry Adelman and Mark Bracco are co-executive producers.
The musical celebration airs on New Year’s Eve night, starting at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
