Rock superstar SIR Elton John is auctioning off all the furniture in his London home - for a cut-price $1.3 million (GBP800,000).

The 56-year-old singer, who also owns homes in Britain, France and America, wants to refurbish his mansion in west London's exclusive Holland Park so he can display more works of art - and this means shifting everything and starting from scratch.

More than 400 items will be auctioned at SOTHEBY'S in London in September (03).

Sir Elton says, "I want to have an opportunity to display more contemporary works in one of my UK homes."
