Glastonbury organizer Emily Ives said John will top the bill on the Pyramid Stage on the music festival’s final night on June 25. Statement Posted on the festival website. The Glastonbury Festival is held most years in Somerset, South West England. In 2021, Billie Eilish, Kendrick Lamar and Paul McCartney were the headline artists.
In a statement shared by his publicist, the singer said he “couldn’t be more excited to headline the Pyramid Stage,” adding that he “can’t wait to embrace the spirit of the world’s biggest festival. Can. It’s going to be incredibly emotional.”
Ives said, “I’m absolutely delighted to tell you that the one and only Elton John will be appearing at Glastonbury for the first time next year, headlining the Pyramid Stage on Sunday night.”
“This will be the last UK show of Elton’s final tour, so we’ll be closing the festival and marking this great moment in both of our dates with the mother of all send-offs.”
The performance will close the UK leg of John’s “Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour”, advertised as his last, with more than 300 dates before his retirement after 52 years of touring.
The tour, which started in 2018, was originally supposed to end in 2021. Postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.it will now expire next summer.
“As my farewell Yellow Brick Road tour comes to an end, there is no more fitting way to say goodbye to my British fans. They have been amazing, and have supported me through all the highs and lows of my career. Faraz has supported me. Five times said the Grammy winner.
So far, John has performed throughout Europe, and most recently, in North America. Last month at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, he took the stage in a matching Dodgers baseball uniform, recreating his look from his previous appearance at the stadium in 1975.
