This year’s Glastonbury was brought to a close by Sir Elton John, who delivered a performance that was filled with hits and was fit for a real music icon.
During the course of the concert, which lasted for a total of two hours, the artist who is now at the top of the charts sang practically all of his most famous songs, including Bennie and the Jets, Your Song, Candle in the Wind, I’m Still Standing, and, of course, Rocket Man.
As was discussed beforehand, he performed alongside four very distinct guest artists during the show.
Sir Elton John brought out Jacob Lusk of Gabriels for the song “Are You Ready for Love,” during which they were also joined by the London Community Gospel Choir. He revealed that he intended to utilize his Glastonbury set to highlight emerging bands, and he did so by bringing Lusk out.

Later on in the performance, singer-songwriter Rina Sawayama sang Kiki Dee’s sections in the famous song “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart,” and later still, Sir Elton and US star Stephen Sanchez did a rendition of Sanchez’s smash song “Until I Found You.” Both of these artists are from the United States.
With only a few of gigs left on his continuing Farewell Yellow Brick Road concert tour, the legendary singer and pianist was expected to play for the final time in the United Kingdom during his set at Glastonbury, which was touted as his final ever UK performance.
Other performances that stood out as among the best from this year’s Glastonbury were those given by Lizzo, Lana Del Rey, Lewis Capaldi, Lil Nas X, and Cat Stevens, all of whom took part in the “legends” slot on the last day of the festival.
