Oscars New Normal: Elton John, David Furnish Selling Tickets to Public for Virtual Pre-Party AIDS Foundation Fundraiser


This is the new normal, kids.

Elton John and David Furnish are throwing an Oscar Zoom pre-party on April 25th to raise money for the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

Neil Patrick Harris is hosting, Dua Lipa is performing. The price is only $19.99. I’m in!

In a normal year, EJAF has a big private dinner in Beverly Hills with lots of celebs and great entertainment. Then they throw open the doors after the Oscars for even more A listers. It’s always a great night.

But with the pandemic and no regular gatherings, this is an excellent idea.

You can buy tickets here.
