Elton John Loses Key Court Verdict On Touring Costs

Flamboyant pop legend Elton John has failed in a multimillion-dollar legal challenge to reopen a case against his accountants over touring costs.

High Court Judge Justice Ferris, who earlier this year threw out the 54-year-old singer’s $19.5 million claim against his accountants, on Wednesday refused leave for an appeal against the decision.

The star’s legal bill in the case is estimated to run into millions of dollars.

The singer and pianist, a tireless performer whose first album hit the charts in 1970, had earlier sued PricewaterhouseCoopers and his management company for charging him for overseas tour expenses.

His legal team can make a further application to the Court of Appeal against PricewaterhouseCoopers, despite the latest decision against him.
