Glastonbury viewers have been shocked by the dimensions of the group that gathered to look at Elton John’s final-ever UK efficiency at Glastonbury.
Elton John by no means thought he’d play Glastonbury and viewers who tuned into his last-ever UK efficiency couldn’t consider simply how many individuals gathered to look at his iconic set at Glastonbury.
Elton’s headline efficiency on Sunday has sparked recommendations he may have pulled within the “largest ever” crowd, though attendance is but to be launched.
In 2022, over 100,000 individuals watched Paul McCartney play as Glastonbury’s headliner in what was then hailed as one of many best headline performances of this technology. Roughly 200,000 individuals attend Glastonbury yearly.
Elton described his efficiency as “particular and emotional” and kicked off his Pyramid Stage set at 9 pm with, Pinball Wizard.
The 76-year-old was the final of three headliners to play at Worthy Farm, Somerset this weekend, following on from Weapons n’ Roses and Arctic Monkeys who performed the earlier two nights.

Aerial footage of the astonishingly massive crowd was proven on the BBC broadcast of the pageant and left individuals shocked.
” after they say legend it’s not taken flippantly describing Elton John… I don’t suppose I’ve ever seen so many within the crowd at Glastonbury,” one particular person wrote.
One other added: “That Pyramid Stage crowd is the biggest I’ve ever seen,” accompanied by footage of the viewers. “Completely wonderful the dimensions of the group at Glastonbury for the legend that’s Elton John,” mentioned a 3rd fan.

“I’ve watched this for years and by no means seen as huge a crowd as Elton John has,” mentioned another person.
“I might guess my life that Elton John goes to be the most important ever crowd at Glastonbury. It’s insane on the Pyramid Stage already,” mentioned one other.
