Sporting a sequin-encrusted tailcoat, the five-time Grammy award winner gave a slick, flamboyant performance Thursday night at the iTunes Festival in London, mixing new material with longtime crowd pleasers including “Rocket Man,” “I’m Still Standing” and “Tiny Dancer.” Following a recent health scare with appendicitis, the 66-year-old musician told the crowd “this is a magical time to be alive.”

John’s new album, “The Diving Board,” is being released Sept. 24.
The iTunes Festival continues until Sept. 30.
