Whether you’re lucky enough to be attending Glastonbury 2023 or look to the summer event as a benchmark for the top music artists in the world, the chances are you’ve been waiting to know who the headliners of the iconic festival will be. And on 2 December the first was announced: it’s only Elton John!
“It gives me enormous pleasure to let you know that the one and only Elton John will be making his first ever Glastonbury appearance, headlining the Pyramid stage on the Sunday night next year,” Emily Eavis, co-organiser of Glastonbury, tweeted. “This will be the final UK show of Elton’s last ever tour, so we will be closing the Festival and marking this huge moment in both of our histories with the mother of all send offs. We are so happy to finally bring the Rocket Man to Worthy Farm!”
The news that John will perform on 25 June 2023 comes after the singer teased fans on Instagram that he had one more date to announce on his “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour, which he vowed would be his last shows before he retires from performing live. He took to the stage for recently at the iconic Dodgers Stadium in LA for the final time, and received a thank you message from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle while there, and is set to embark on the final leg of the tour in Europe in 2023. This will then culminate with a, no doubt, epic show at Glastonbury 2023 with some amazing costumes, too.
Surprisingly, John has never played Glastonbury before. The announcement follows various Glasto outlets, including BBC Glastonbury and Frome Photos, tweeting some mysterious photos of the sky with a rocket flying past over the past few days. Now, we know they were hinting at John’s Rocket Man persona.
Glasonbury 2022 saw Kendrick Lamar, Billie Eilish, who made history as the youngest solo headliner, and Paul McCartney top the bill on the Pyramid stage. For next summer, the Friday and Saturday headliners are yet to be announced, and the full lineup is being kept under wraps, but with this finale, we are sure Glastonbury 2023 will be a festival to remember.
