Elton John plays piano to stunned London commuters

In 2001, he sang This Train Don't Stop There Anymore, and yesterday Elton got back down with the transport system as he treated London commuters to a piano performance at St Pancras Station.

Onlooker Ruth Swailes said: “A colleague and I were just walking through the station and there was a bit of a crowd, then everyone started clapping and cheering. Elton sat down and started playing Tiny Dancer. He didn’t sing, played for about five minutes, then got up and walked away, all very low key.”

He then signed the piano, writing: “Enjoy this piano. It’s a gift. Love, Elton John.”

You can watch clips of Elton playing Don't Go Breaking My Heart and Your Song below:

 

My gift is my song and this piano's for you. @stpancrasinternational @RocketEntertainment #WonderfulCrazyNight
