Elton John is set to be paid $1 million to play at a super rich tycoon’s birthday party for just an hour.
It costs you million of dollars to see Elton John performs. Rumor has it that the singer has agreed to play a private gig for Andrew Reynolds, after the businessman offered him $1 million (£550,000) to take to the stage.
Reynolds, also one of England's top philanthropists, is a big fan of John and he's planning a private 50th birthday blowout bash, to be held at London's Hampton Court Palace on November 23rd with 150 guests only.
The fee means John will be getting $10,000 a minute and he's said to be "bowled over" by the offer. He surely will.
