Elton's Surprise Moscow Gig
A private banquet in Moscow at the Stanislavsky & Nemirovich-Danchenko theatre made Elton John's wallet several times heavier. For an hour's performance at Marianna Sardarova's party who is the wife of the famous Russian oil merchant, the English musician was paid a million dollars.
John, 61, arrived to Moscow on Thursday morning (March 12) accompanied by his beloved husband David Furnish, at the Ararat Park Hyatt Hotel.
Elton made an exception for Sardarova's party - he played the piano which was provided by the promoters of the party. The singer usually brings his own musical instrument.
Sir Elton immediately departed after the event destined for Face 2 Face concerts in the United States with Billy Joel.
