Sir Elton John performed a special one-off show with PNAU in Sydney on Friday.
Earlier this year Elton John and PNAU released the 'Good Morning To The Night' album featuring reinventions of the Elton back catalogue by PNAU.
Elton gave full licence to PNAU to recreate his music any way they wanted and then removed himself from the creative process.
The resulting album was a total reinvention of classic and obscure Elton John material from 1970 to 1975.
The first half of the Sydney show was Elton solo followed by the first ever public performance of Elton John Vs PNAU.
