The Rocket Man can still light it up.
Elton John’s Rocketman biopic has blasted off at cinemas around the world, and relaunched his catalogue into the charts. On the weekend, the legendary singer brought a bit of Hollywood glitter to the stage when Taron Egerton, the British actor who plays the Hall of Famer in the new feature film, stepped up for a duet in his homeland.
The star of Rocketman joined the Rocket Man for a performance of Elton’s classic “Your Song” as the Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour stopped in at the open-air Hove County Ground, England.
Directed by Dexter Fletcher, Rocketman collected $14 million at the North American box office over the weekend, good enough for 5th place, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
