Elton John collaborates with Benny Andersson of ABBA for a fan-favorite musical mash-up – WATCH

Benny Andersson of ABBA and ELTON JOHN have responded to a viral TikTok video by recreating a fan-favorite mashup of their music. Ticket information for Elton John’s Farewell tour and ABBA Voyage is also provided. Mashups are not a novel concept, but a TikTok user named @reymifasol has had theirs played over 650,000 times. The clip in question combines the beginning of ABBA’s Chiquitita from 1979 with Bennie And The Jets by Elton John. Since then, Elton John and Benny Andersson have performed the mashup virtually on their own pianos at home.

Rocketman wrote on Instagram, “Heard about this little mashup of ‘Bennie And The Jets’ and ‘Chiquitita’ and had to participate!” Benny begins the video as anticipated by performing the beginning of Chiquitita on a grand piano in a recording studio. The footage then shifts to Elton at his home, where he begins his 1974 classic, which he has been performing on tour. Elton is currently on his final world tour, having already performed in the United Kingdom in June. The 75-year-old is currently performing in North America, with an upcoming evening performance in Chicago.

The star will travel to Australia and New Zealand in 2019 and return to the UK for a series of performances, including a nine-date residency at The O2 in London. To reserve a ticket, click here.
