He also donated a piano to St Pancras station.

Posted on

London’s railway system often receives praise for its speed, ease of use, and overall cleanliness. And now, it can add A-list subway performances to its list of perks. In celebration of his new album Wonderful Crazy Night, Sir Elton John surprised commuters passing through the city’s St Pancras station Thursday with an impromptu concert.

The 68-year-old “Tiny Dancer” singer then left the Yamaha B3 piano he’d used during the performance at the station for others to use. “Enjoy this piano! It’s a gift” he wrote on the instrument.

John added on Instagram that he wanted to give others the chance to play. “Surprise!! I popped into St Pancras International to christen the Yamaha piano which I donated to the station,” John captioned a photo of the performance. “Now everyone can have a play.”

Check out John’s performance above. Wonderful Crazy Night debuted Friday.
