The Global Citizen Music Festival featured multiple performances from around the world with the main performances taking place in Lagos, Rio de Janeiro, New York City, Paris, London, Seoul, Los Angeles, and Sydney. Sir Elton played at the festival’s Paris location, while Lauper’s set took place in New York City.

John played a tight four-song set that included “Tiny Dancer,” “Your Song,” his new song “After All” with Charlie Puth and his classic tune “Rocket Man.” Lauper, meanwhile, performed “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” and “True Colors” with Jon Batiste. (Video of the performances can be viewed below.)
