The ‘Candle in the Wind ‘ Singer Delights His Fans As He Makes A Surprise Appearance Wearing Tutu At The Stage Musical Which He Has Helped Created The Music For.
Elton John thrilled fans in Sydney, Australia when he appeared on stage during a performance of “Billy Elliot: The Musical”.
The “Rocket Man” singer took the stage for the final curtain call at Thursday’s November 28 show, when he hit the stage in a purple jacket and metallic tracksuit pants, and a matching tutu.
He remained on stage as the rest of the production’s cast joined him to wave at the crowd and take their final bows.
Elton, who is Down Under for his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, created the music for the show, while the book and lyrics are by Lee Hall – who has also written the 2020 film adaptation.
And while fans were aware he was in the country, it seems even the cast and crew of the production were shocked by his appearance.
The official Instagram for Australia’s “Billy Elliot: The Musical” posted, “The company of Billy Elliot the Musical were surprised by a very special guest last night…SIR ELTON JOHN! Elton joined our cast on stage for the curtain call and the audience erupted into thunderous applause!”
Fans also couldn’t believe their luck, as they took to social media, with one gushing, “ELTON FREAKING JOHN is on stage in a TUTU. I lost my MIND. Never going to forget this night!”
