Elton John recently posted some photos and videos from a performance that took place 50 years ago and shares how it changed his whole life thereafter. It was his very first performance in America, and boy, how that shifted his entire career! He started his career as a pianist at a nearby pub when he was 15 years old and has come such a long way since.

He has since sold over 300 million records and has become one of the best-selling artists of all time. In that specific performance 50 years ago, he performed at The Troubadour. His performance, needless to say, was a success as he captivated the American audience.

50 years ago today, I played in America for the first time at @theTroubadour. As I wrote in @britishgq last week, that show changed my life. When I walked on stage on August 25, 1970, I was just a little-known pop singer from England. It didn’t take me long to realise afterwards, though, that things would never be the same again.

 Swipe through to see original video from that show, plus the scene from @rocketmanmovie that captured the emotions from that night so beautifully. 🚀
