The famous sunglasses that became Elton John's signature in the '70s have been mysteriously stolen right out of a famous museum.
The iconic shades -- which Elton wore while performing songs like "Saturday Night's Alright," "Daniel," "Philadelphia Freedom," "Crocodile Rock," "Tiny Dancer" and "Your Song" went missing Tuesday from the Rock 'n' Soul Museum in Memphis.
Cops tell TMZ, the manager reported that someone opened the locked case which housed the spectacles, but they have no idea how it happened. Museum honchos say someone had to use tools in order to jimmy the lock.
Surveillance cameras did not catch the thief and there are no suspects.
Cops are on the hunt for a shady suspect.
