Is Elton John diving into AR and VR tomorrow? This London pop-up at King’s Cross station suggests the answer is yes.

CNET received an invite from the Office of Elton John for an event tomorrow, promising, “prepare to see Elton John as you have never seen him before. A special announcement delivered in a revolutionary way. An experience not to be missed.” We don’t know what it is yet, but an augmented reality pop-up in London’s King’s Cross station suggests virtual music is afoot. According to tweets, the installation has a self-playing piano and a screen that, when looked through, shows a virtual vintage Elton playing away.
