A new Elton John Barbie doll has been created to mark the 45th anniversary of the singer’s legendary 1975 concerts at Dodger Stadium.
In 1975, Elton John was the first musical artist to perform at Dodger Stadium since The Beatles nine years earlier, and they were the largest concert events ever by a single artist at that time, attracting more than 100,000 people over the course of two shows.
“Barbie is an icon in her own right, so having her pay tribute to my work and personal style is a real honor,” John said in a statement. “I hope that she inspires fans everywhere to fearlessly pursue their own dreams and limitless potential.”

- Colorful nods to the artist’s iconic style include rainbow-striped platform boots, a bowler hat and sparkly, pink-tinted sunglasses
- This collectible Barbie doll is a bold collaboration that personifies two cultural icons and honors the extraordinary artistry and musicianship of a stellar performer
