Barbie is honouring Elton John to mark next week’s 45th anniversary of his legendary sold-out concerts at Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles.

“Barbie is an icon in her own right, so having her pay tribute to my work and personal style is a real honour,” read a tweet from John. “I hope that she inspires fans everywhere to fearlessly pursue their own dreams and limitless potential.”

Mattel boasts the Elton John Barbie “shines bright in a glittery top and flared denim embellished with Elton's sparkling initials. Her 'Elton'-embossed bomber jacket features star-printed sleeves and a rainbow-striped hem. Nods to the artist's iconic style include rainbow-striped platform boots, a purple bowler hat and sparkly, pink-tinted sunglasses.”

The doll is available online for $50 U.S. plus $19.95 U.S. shipping (roughly $90 Canadian).

John’s shows on Oct. 25 and 26, 1975 were the biggest concerts by a solo artist at the time.

The singer, now 73, was just 12 when the original Barbie was introduced in 1959.
