With the opening of the Walled Off Hotel, the anonymous artist is now the proprietor of a fully function art hotel located in Bethlehem. The Walled Off Hotel features art from the famous artist as well as from local artists and allows guests to experience Banksy’s works in a unique context. The hotel also will regularly host musicians in their colonialism-themed piano bar. To kick off this new venture, Elton John was tapped to play the hotel’s opening night, which he did remotely. In the future, 3D from Massive Attack, Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross, Atticus Zimmer, and Flea will be playing the hotel. You can check out a video from Elton John’s performance below, and book reservations for the Walled Off Hotel on Banksy website here.last_img
