Sir Elton books hotel room just for his glasses

6th Mar 2013

Elton John is alleged to have booked a separate hotel room for his glasses collection while on a tour of Brazil.

The pop star renowned for his colourful spectacles and love of flowers told organisers in Belo Horizonte, south east Brazil, he needed an extra room for his glasses, according to Brazil's Pampulha newspaper.

Sir Elton is currently on a tour of Brazil to perform four shows celebrating his Rocket Man album.

The report also claims that the singer requested an ambient temperature of 16C and that his hotel suite be adorned with flowers.

It is said the request included four two-metre high vases containing palm trees in the star's dressing room along with seven other square vases, five of which were to contain 16 red roses and two others containing 16 white roses.

However, a spokesperson responsible for Sir Elton's March 9 show at the city's Mineirao football stadium said the star "isn't that eccentric".

Describing the musician as "a very disciplined artist", Aluizer Malab said they were "reasonable requests".

Meanwhile, Rolling Stone magazine in Brazil has reported that Sir Elton is keen to try authentic Brazilian cuisine during his stay in the South American country.

His tour of Brazil also includes performances in Porto Alegre and Brasilia.
