Sir Elton John recently held a private concert for the grand opening of a concert hall in Moscow. Russian businessman, Vadim Varshavsky, bankrolled the entire thing - to the tune of $3 million! Elton even managed to plug his new collection of Chopard luxury watches. This trend in inviting insanely famous entertainers to private parties is increasing along with Russia's growing wealth.
