John Legend played the piano for stunned commuters at St Pancras station

John Legend gave Londoners an fantastic surprise when he sat down at a piano in the middle of St. Pancras station and started performing his hits on a random Wednesday.

Most commuters at the busy London termunus probably had their minds on Brexit and Article 50 when music started playing from one of the station's pianos.

The singer received huge cheers from fans who took pictures and filmed the impromptu set on their phones.

A piano has long stood in the station as a kind of landmark, and Legend hopped on the keys to play "All of Me", "Ordinary People", and the Darkness song "Surefire".

On wrapping up the 10 minute set he was then ushered through the station into a waiting vehicle. That was tweeted just as he was arriving from Paris. Do they still have that piano there?'

Live Nation UK posted video of Legend's arrival and performance.

The suprise show was to promote his upcoming world tour, which will see him play United Kingdom dates in September. "It's a gift. Love, Elton John".
