This is definitely not a scene you expect to see on your London commute on a Thursday morning!

Sir Elton John surprised those at London St Pancras International station yesterday when he rocked up and played a Yamaha piano in the middle of the terminal for a group of delighted onlookers.

The incredible moment was caught on video and shared widely on social media.

According to the Guardian, after playing for a few minutes, the 68-year-old music icon left a note on the piano: “Enjoy this piano. It’s a gift. Love, Elton John” and made a swift exit. Rock n’ roll!

In a post on his Instagram page, he paraphrased the lyrics from one of his most famous hits Your Song, adding: “My gift is my song and this piano’s for you.”

Elton is currently promoting his new album Wonderful Crazy Night, which is released today (February 5).
