Rocket Man El­ton to ig­nite wed­ding party

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - One Day To Go Wedding Of The Decade -

EL­TON John has been un­veiled as part of the en­ter­tain­ment at to­mor­row’s wed­ding.

US celebrity web­site TMZ re­ported the Tiny Dancer singer will ap­pear dur­ing the big day, but it isn’t known whether his per­for­mance will be dur­ing the church cer­e­mony or at one of the later re­cep­tions.

John has had a close as­so­ci­a­tion with the royal fam­ily for decades and worked closely with Prince Harry’s mother Princess Diana on AIDS re­search.

He also per­formed Candle In The Wind at Diana’s fu­neral in 1997.

Spec­u­la­tion had been rife that John was set to ap­pear ei­ther as a guest or per­former at Harry and Meghan Markle’s wed­ding af­ter the singer can­celled his con­certs in Las Ve­gas, which had been sched­uled for this week­end.

Mean­while, it has also been con­firmed that The Spice Girls will not be per­form­ing — this is de­spite Mel B telling a US chat show that they would re­unite and sing at the nup­tials. “Only Vic­to­ria, Emma and Geri were in­vited, so clearly, the Spice Girls were never go­ing to per­form,” a source said.

Bri­tish su­per­star singer Ed Sheeran had also vol­un­teered to per­form but has since con­firmed he will not be part of the day’s en­ter­tain­ment.
