|Elton plays at Robert Kraft’s private Super Bowl party
Monday, February 6 2017
How do you prep for the Super Bowl? If you’re Patriots owner Robert Kraft, you have a private party at your hotel and invite Elton John to play a solo set on the piano.
Not bad, right? Kraft hosted the hush-hush affair for 100 or so friends and family in a ballroom on February 4, 2017 at the Marriott Marquis in downtown Houston. Pats players couldn’t make it, of course — but tight end Rob Gronkowski, who’s sidelined with a back injury, was there. Also hanging out, we’re told, was country star Kenny Chesney, who’s become good pals with the Pats poobah having played many sold out shows at Gillette Stadium over the years.
Elton is a longtime friend of the Kraft family and has played at past parties they’ve hosted. Kraft is also a regular attendee of the EJAF’s annual Oscar party in LA.
Despite earlier rumours, Elton did not perform with Lady Gaga at the Super Bowl halftime show, but he was seen in the stadium.
