Elton John to take family on heli ride over Moscow

Colorful British pop legend Sir Elton John is taking measures to conquer Moscow’s notorious traffic jams ahead of a concert in the Russian capital. The singer will beat the queues and get a bird’s eye view of the city from a helicopter.

Elton John, who is due to perform at Moscow’s Crocus City Hall on Monday November 14, has first-hand experience of Moscow’s traffic misery, being a frequent visitor to the city. The star has taken radical evasive action by booking a helicopter for himself and his loved-ones.

Happy couple Elton John, 64, and his partner David Furnish, 49, who now have a 10-month-old son to care for, are not about to miss a chance to show the world to their baby. Despite the fact that Zachary will have no memories of his short trip here, the Russian capital will nonetheless figure on his “have-been-to” list.

The veteran pop legend will showcase a program of his Greatest Hits at his Moscow concert, with accompaniment from his Elton John band and 2Cellos, a duo from Croatia.

The tour, which kicked off in Latvia, has already taken the singer to Riga, Vilnius, St. Petersburg and Kiev.
