iStock/ThinkstockTonight, the world will ring in 2015 and, as usual on New Year’s Eve, plenty of famous music acts will celebrate the big event with their fans by playing special shows.

Among the big-name artists hitting the concert stage this evening is Elton John, who’ll be at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. As previously reported, a brief segment of the Rocket Man’s concert will be shown live on ABC’s Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest special.

Elton’s frequent touring partner, Billy Joel, also will be playing a New Year’s Eve show, in Orlando, Florida. Incidentally, Joel appeared on last year’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve special when he played at the Barclays Center.

In addition, Queen and one-time American Idol finalist Adam Lambert will play a special concert in London that will take place at Central Hall Westminster next to the famed landmark Big Ben. The show will be streamed live online at BBC.co.uk and will begin at 6:15 p.m. ET.
