Elton recently surprised commuters with a performance on a piano at London’s St Pancras International station.


Photographs and videos posted on Twitter show John playing the keyboards in the middle of the station, surrounded by a throng of delighted onlookers.
 
After playing for a few minutes, the Rocket Man left a note on the instrument: “Enjoy this piano. It’s a gift. Love, Elton John.”

He posted a photo on his Instagram account, and wrote: “Surprise!! I popped into St Pancras International to christen the Yamaha piano which I donated to the station. Now everyone can have a play.”

Alongside a second photograph, the composer paraphrased a line from one of his hits, Your Song.

He wrote: “My gift is my song and this piano’s for you.”
