The world-renowned British singer, songwriter and performer teamed up with the bespoke tailor Richard James, a personal friend, to create a series of stunning stage costumes. Elton John took the stage in a fabulous gold crystal-encrusted cape and garnered standing ovations after each song. Additionally, the all-new production features fifteen suits, twenty two shirts and twenty four pairs of glasses all adorned with millions of crystals creating sparkle throughout the performance.

Sir Elton John said: "I've always been a huge admirer of Swarovski and to work with them in this capacity is a dream come true.”

Nadja Swarovski, Member of the Executive Board, Swarovski Crystal Business, commented: “I’ve been a fan of Elton’s music for years and so I’m especially excited about Swarovski’s involvement in the ‘Million Dollar Piano’ through working with Richard James on these extraordinary costumes. Elton is one of the most legendary performers and Richard is one of Britain’s best tailors - together they have created a dazzling spectacle that will take audiences’ breath away.”
