Apart from a small number of European shows, this would be the last time people would be able to see Sir Elton John live before he retired from live performances.
He told the crowd at the start of the show, “I never thought I’d ever play Glastonbury and here I am.” “I better play well and I can entertain you better.”
The show closes the 2023 Glastonbury Festival, which was headlined by Arctic Monkeys on Friday and Guns N’ Roses on Saturday.
Other performers for the weekend included Blondie, Cat Stevens, Rick Astley, Texas and Lizzo.
Elton John teased at least four surprise guests for the event, rumored to be Harry Styles, Dua Lipa or Britney Spears. Although this did not happen, the most high-profile guest was The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers.
Elton also paid tribute to his late friend George Michael on the singer’s 60th birthday. Before performing their famous duet Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me, Elton said, “This one’s for you, George.”
