He has been on vacation with his partner and sons Zachary [eight] and Elia [six] in Sardinia, Italy in recent days.
And Sir Elton John was back at work when he and his husband David Furnish organized his AIDS midsummer party from his foundation on Wednesday evening, held in Pigozzi & # 39; s private villa Dorane in Antibes, France.
For the special event, the musician, 72, distinguished himself from his guests in a designer lilac suit, which he watered down with a simple white T-shirt.

The I & # 39; m Still Standing hit maker stole the show with his bold appearance while combining his two-piece Gucci bedazzled white sneakers and his signature sequined sunglasses.
Producer David, 56, looked just as cool, who decorated the event in a stone-colored baggy suit and brown sandals.
On the occasion of the very first gala event in southern France, the ball is celebrating the 26th anniversary of the Elton John AIDS Foundation, which aims to create a future without AIDS to make the biggest difference possible for people with HIV.

Over the past 26 years, the foundation has achieved: reaching millions in 26 countries with HIV information, support and care to save their lives and protect their loved ones; prevent nearly one million babies with the HIV virus from being born; and helping to leverage more than £ 300 million in additional funding from governments and funding partners.
Since the first summer ball ever in 1999, global HIV treatment has grown from fewer than 300,000 people to more than 20 million.
Last year's Argento Ball launched the fundraising campaign of 2018, which is aimed at young people at risk of HIV.

In a recent statement, the Candle in the Wind singer said that the mission of the foundation is & # 39; more important than ever & # 39; in our current climate, and added that he and everyone at the Foundation are optimistic about their ability to influence people affected by HIV and AIDS.
Elton explained: “In a time of great uncertainty in the world, the work of EJAF is more important than ever, and we remain steadfastly committed to the unmet needs of people living with and affected by HIV / AIDS and fighting stigma. as an important driver of the global AIDS epidemic.
& # 39; We believe that everyone living with HIV / AIDS should have immediate access to high-quality medical care and that all people at risk for HIV should have the best knowledge and tools available to prevent transmission, regardless of who they are, who they love, what they believe, where they come from or what they do. & # 39;
