Sir Elton John will bring on four special guests during his headline show at Glastonbury this weekend, his husband David Furnish has revealed.
The Rocket Man superstar will take to the Pyramid stage at Worthy Farm on Sunday night for what has been billed as his final UK gig.
Discussing Sir Elton’s plans for surprises at the show, David told Sky News’ Beth Rigby: “Four collaborators of his choosing. People, he just thought, ‘I’d really like to do something with these artists at Glastonbury’. And that’s all I’m going to say.”
Asked who they might be, David said: "Sorry. I am sworn to secrecy," he added: "This one is very special. It is not just another day in the office.
"It’s a different set list – it’s a huge outdoor live festival. He’s got four different collaborators joining him on stage at different times, who I won’t name, sorry.
"So, he’s done a lot of changes. A lot on his plate, so I think he’s anxious. Yeah, but I think good, anxious, healthy anxious."
And one performer rumoured to be joining Elton, 76, is Britney Spears after the duo collaborated on the hit song Hold Me Closer which was the US singer’s first return to music in six years.
He said he wanted the track, which reached number three in the UK charts, to "enlighten everybody" that Britney, 41, is "one of the great pop stars of the world".
And Britney added fuel to the fire earlier this week when she took to Instagram and shared a picture of an apple carved into what looks to be the St George’s England flag. She captioned it with three British flags.
Other stars rumoured to be joining Elton include Dua Lipa thanks to their chart-topping Cold Heart (Pnau Remix) together in August 2021.
While Billy Joel, Harry Styles, Ed Sheeran, Olly Alexander, Eminem, Lady Gaga, Lewis Capaldi, Dolly Parton and Kate Bush are all in the rumoured line-up.
Another contender is Taron Egerton after the Kingsman: The Secret Service actor starred as Sir Elton in the biopic Rocketman which was based on the musician’s life.
The 33-year-old also sang Tiny Dancer accompanied by Sir Elton at an Oscars party and recorded the song (I’m Gonna) Love Me Again for the film together.
