Ohio to be Last Stop For Traveling Show That Includes a Song Signed by Elton And Bernie

Written by Chief Editor.

The Cincinnati Museum Center will be the last stop next year (Feb. 14-Aug. 17) on the public exhibition tour for a show about a late friend of Elton's.

 

Diana: A Celebration displays Lady Di's wedding dress, a tiara, and some 150 pieces of memorabilia. The princess was killed in a 1997 car crash in Paris.

The items are on loan from the Althorp Estate, the Spencer family's ancestral home in England. They will be turned over to Diana's sons later.

Also included is a copy of the special adaptation of Candle in The Wind Elton sang at Diana's funeral. It was signed by the piano player and his co-writer, Bernie Taupin.

"The exhibit puts into context the things she was able to accomplish in the short period of time she lived," said John Norman, president of the Arts and Exhibits International, which organised the display.
