Elton John performed the final U.K. show of his ‘Farewell Yellow Brick Road’ tour Sunday with his performance at the Glastonbury festival.
Sire Elton included five songs he hasn't been performing, including his cover of The Who's "Pinball Wizard," which he did in the 1975 film Tommy. He opened with it, his first time performing the classic since 2009.
He also performed "Daniel"; "Are You Ready for Love" — with American Idol contestant Jacob Lusk, last performed in 2014; a cover of singer-songwriter Stephen Sanchez's "Until I Found You" with Sanchez; and "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" with Rina Sawayama singing Kiki Dee's part.
Elton’s guests were Brandon Flowers of The Killers on "Tiny Dancer"; and the London Community Gospel Choir on "Are You Ready for Love" and "Sad Songs (Say So Much)."
He closed the show with "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me," which he dedicated to George Michael on what would have been his 60th birthday, and "Rocket Man (I Think It's Going to Be a Long, Long Time)."
Elton told the crowd, “You make me feel so happy, make me feel loved." He added, "I want to thank you also for 52 years of amazing love and loyalty you’ve shown me. It’s been an incredible journey and I’ve had the best, best time. I will never forget you. You’re in my head and my heart and my soul.”
