Elton Shopping in Sydney


ELTON John did his bit for the local economy on Friday, stocking up on Aussie music and shocking staff at the Virgin Megastore in Martin Place when he dropped by for a CD binge.

With two bodyguards and an assistant in tow, Elton hit the store - and hard, with the music star filling the arms of his attending entourage with new releases.

Heading for the Christmas stockings of his friends were a few festive finds. He asked for and snapped up Olivia Newton-John's new seasonal CD.

A Confidential source said a staff member then told him about Kylie Minogue's new album, which had just arrived, and "his eyes lit up as he said: 'I'll take five copies'."

One shelf elf said: "Elton was pleasant and gracious to all, including some fans who recognised him."
