Elton John replica piano on show in Leicester

Great deals on musical instruments

An Elton John replica red piano is currently on show at a music shop in Leicester.

The special grand piano, completely emblazoned in a bold red shell, is on sale for £69,000, with a proportion of the proceeds going towards The Elton John AIDS Foundation, reported the BBC.

The music instrument is one of 20 in the world and currently the only one to be found in the UK. It has been specially loaded with a music system that allows music to be downloaded to it but it can equally be played in the conventional way.

Noel Sheehan, director of the Leicester-based shop, who was very proud and honoured to be hosting the piano, told the news provider: "It came about when Elton decided that a normal black piano would look a bit dull on stage at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, where he is currently playing a number of scheduled concerts. A red piano was made for him and the idea of a limited edition series was born."

Elton John is one of the most famous musicians of all time. He is currently number nine in the US music best-seller list having sold 69 million albums in that country alone.
