Elton John tickles the ivories of his “Red Piano” in Moscow

Not only do you get a wild and full-of-energy Sir Elton John, but you get it all in a truly unique environment also. “The Red Piano”, the spectacular musician’s show, comes to Moscow straight out of Vegas.

“The Red Piano” was first staged in Las Vegas in 2004 and it immediately became a hit. Since its first performance the program was performed over 240 times in the city. And now, as Rossiyskaya Gazeta reports, Elton John has decided to use his show in Moscow as a farewell to the Red Piano.In recent years Elton John has visited Russia more often than any other country for concerts and private events. This time on October 7 he comes to Moscow with “The Red Piano” show – which will be more than just a run-of-the-mill gig.

In many respects it will remind people of what the musician was like on the top of the pop and rock music hill: one of the brightest, most talented and unpredictable musicians in unusual shades and very extravagant suits.

The concert, directed by Elton John’s close friend David LaChapelle, reflects the nature of the musician through art.

Sir Elton John will indeed play the keys of the titular piano on the stage of Olympiisky Arena as emotionally and eccentrically as he did back in the 1970s. The scenery will be turned into an original art installation made up of colorful neon sculptures, pop art, inflatable figures and spheres, projections of photographs and short films.

And for even more spiciness, famous burlesque artist Dita Von Tease and model Pamela Anderson are rumored to be taking part in some of the shows.

The concert will be held in Moscow’s Olympiisky Arena on October 7.
