Glastonbury viewers question why Taron Egerton didn’t join Elton John on stage when he was at festival
| Last updated
Glastonbury 2023 really ended with a bang last night as legendary singer Elton John sang a bunch of his classics to a packed out crowd at Worthy Farm.
Elton, 76, said the Glasto performance was his last-ever musical performance in the UK, thanking fans around the world for their love and support in a career spanning 52 years.
“I’ll always have you in my head and my heart and my soul," he told elated crowds.
Of course, Elton welcomed on a bunch of famous faces on the stage with him, including the likes of Mr Glasto himself, The Killers' Brandon Flowers.
Prior to the show there had been much speculation as to who would be joining Elton at Glasto, with the likes of Harry Styles and Dua Lipa rumoured.
However, neither of them turned up - with Lipa being a particular surprise considering Elton sang 'Cold Heart' without her.
But another name many took to Twitter to describe their shock that he didn't appear on stage is Taron Egerton.
The 33-year-old actor portrayed Elton in the 2019 biopic Rocketman, with Elton performing the hit song as part of his set.
Taron was in fact in attendance at Glastonbury this weekend, and has been sharing pictures of himself at Worthy Farm over the past few days.
One photo he shared to his Instagram saw him chilling out and enjoy a nice cold beverage, adding the caption: "Looking forward to a quiet weekend with the boys."
Taron was being truly honest there, as he was nowhere to be seen during Elton's set.
Despite that, many music lovers flocked to social media to question why the actor couldn't have made at least a small cameo during Elton's set.
"So you're expecting me to believe that Taron Egerton is at Glasto and ISN'T going to be on stage with Elton?" one person wrote on Twitter.
A second added: "Honestly?!? I am outraged! Taron Egerton is literally at Glasto and he didn’t come on stage and sing with Elton John? Eh? How? What do you mean? How dare ya?!? Why? All those guests and the man who played him in a biopic wasn’t one of them? Again… why?"
Another remarked: "if Elton doesn't bring out Taron Egerton out for a song when he's literally at Glasto, I will riot."
Meanwhile, a fourth penned: "I was fully expecting Taron Egerton to come on stage, he's at Glasto! Find it a bit strange he wasn't part of the Elton set, the audience would have ate it up! Loved it none the less!"
