Elton John is parting ways with hundreds of his most prized possessions from his Atlanta home, which he sold in October.
The items will be auctioned online in an eight-part series by Christie’s, a New York-based auction house, starting February 21, but the preview is already available.
From metallic platform boots and rare designer watches to electrifying artwork and sculptures, there’s something to tickle every taste in “The Collection of Sir Elton John: Goodbye Peachtree Road.”
The treasures are all as distinctive and vivid as the legendary musician’s larger-than-life persona.
“Not only has John amassed one of the largest private collections of photographs in the world, but his extensive collections also range from 19th-century sculptures and crucifixes to contemporary art glasswork and Versace silk shirts,” Christie’s said .
Many items pay homage to John’s Rocket Man era, including costumes from the 1970s that were loaned to be recreated for the 2019 film “Rocketman.” There are rocket-shaped cufflinks and even a pair of silver rocket-shaped cocktail shakers. .
Some of John’s iconic sunglasses are on sale, along with a white wardrobe trunk and a signed collector’s edition of an Elton John-themed pinball machine.
Hundreds of items that adorned his Peachtree Road lot are also for sale, including various lighting fixtures and furniture.
Also for sale are John’s Yamaha grand piano that sat in his living room and his 1990 Bentley Continental convertible.
The items are expected to fetch more than $10 million, Christie’s said.
John bought his Atlanta duplex in 1991, choosing to make it his East Coast home base, in part because his then-romantic partner lived there, Christie’s said. He fell in love with the Georgia city and its culture, quickly becoming a die-hard Atlanta Braves fan and naming his 27th studio album “Peachtree Road.”
