Watch a rare 1973 performance of 'Step Into Christmas'

Stunning archive footage of Elton's festive classic 'Step Into Christmas' has today been unveiled.

The extremely rare performance footage was originally broadcast in 1973 as part of The Gilbert O’Sullivan Show and is a wonderful throwback sure to get everyone in the mood for the festive season ahead. After its original broadcast, the footage was lost in the ITV archives and has only recently been unearthed. Featuring Elton alongside his classic band line-up of Davey Johnstone, Dee Murray and Nigel Olsson (and a rare cameo from songwriting partner Bernie Taupin on percussion) it has not been seen since it was first aired in 1973.

The 'Step Into Christmas' EP is also available now.
