Elton John has rocked the house at Beijing's MasterCard Center.

Dressed in a blue sequined jacket and blue glasses, the 65-year-old and his band played all of his classics including "Tiny Dancer", "Candle in the Wind" and "Rocket Man".

But it was his popular "Crocodile Rock" that really got people out of their seats.

The more than 2-hour performance concluded with the British star returning to the stage for an encore that saw him play "Your Song" followed by a belting rendition of "Circle of Life" from "The Lion King".

Elton John has visited China many times since his first visit in 1984, but it's been eight years since his last tour of the country in 2004.

He played in Shanghai on Friday night and will head to Guangzhou next Thursday, December 6, 2012.
