Elton John Brought Brandon Flowers, Rina Sawayama, And Live Rarities To Glastonbury, His Last-Ever UK Show
Elton John headlined the final night of Glastonbury 2023 on Sunday as part of his long-running farewell tour, which started back in 2018 and is still ongoing. His performance at Glastonbury has been billed as his last-ever UK show, and just like when he performed in the US for the last time at Dodger Stadium, he brought along some special guests for the occasion.
Rina Sawayama came out for “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart,” Brandon Flowers performed with him for “Tiny Dancer”; he brought out Nashville musician Stephen Sanchez and covered Sanchez’s “Until I Found You,” and the American Idol singer Jacob Lusk came out for “Are You Ready For Love,” which John performed live for the first time since 2014. He opened the set with his rendition of the Who’s “Pinball Wizard,” which he hasn’t done live since 2009. And he dedicated “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me” to the late George Michael, who would have turned 60 today.
