During this Elton John tour you will learn about Elton musical genius and how he taught himself the piano at the age of 4 at his grandparent’s house. But why was he living with his grandparents? You’ll find that out during the tour when you see his childhood homes and learn about his family’s complex relationships.

As you’d expect, Elton John’s first public performances and early attempts at song writing all took place in Pinner. You’ll have the chance to have your photo taken outside the venue where Elton, known as ‘Reggie’ secured his first paying gig.

Fans are often intrigued by Elton John’s writing process, so naturally a section of the tour is dedicated to Elton’s successful, 50-year collaboration with lyricist Bernie Taupin. Do you want to know which songs were written in Pinner? Join us to find out! During the tour you may be surprised to hear how easily Elton was able to compose when he read Taupin’s lyrics. The tunes just sprang into his head, enabling him to compose smash hits in as little as 15 minutes!

As you travel around, you’ll pass by his old school, where he cultivated lifelong friendships, many of whom joined Elton for their Class of 58 school reunion. You’ll also hear about his beloved Watford FC, no matter how big, rich or successful he became, Elton John remained a devout supporter and eventually the chairman to his local football team.

Throughout the Elton John tour, your friendly guide will entertain you with anecdotes about the boy who became the ‘Rocket Man’ and explore the relationships that he had here in Pinner which helped shape his musical career.
