Sir Elton John’s famous Oscar party has always been one of the hardest tickets to get.

But now you can go – if you have just 20 US dollars (£14.50).

The Elton John Aids Foundation is inviting everyone to an hour-long, virtual pre-show Oscar party special hosted by Neil Patrick Harris and with a performance by Dua Lipa.

Tickets for the April 25 event are 19.99 US dollars and are available via Ticketmaster. Proceeds will go to young people at risk and living with HIV all over the world.

The foundation is one of the leading independent Aids organisations in the world.

One of its fundraising highlights is the star-studded Oscar viewing show, with a dinner and an auction. This time, a pre-show will be available to ticket buyers.

The special will be hosted four times in four different time zones and each will accommodate 100,000 viewers, meaning a total of 400,000 ticket buyers are allowed access.

“Now more than ever, we need to ensure that one pandemic does not override another, and we cannot forget the 38 million people living with HIV globally who need our care, love and support, so we hope everyone joins us for this special one of a kind Oscar pre-party,” Sir Elton said in a statement.
