Elton is well-known for being an outspoken star. He rose to fame in the Seventies and was in the charts for several decades. He has sold more than 300million records and won an array of awards, from Grammys to Golden Globes.
Elton released his autobiography last year, and a biopic about his life called ‘Rocketman’ starring Taron Egerton was released in in 2019 too.
Elton is currently on his international farewell tour Farewell Yellow Brick Tour. Last summer he caused a storm when he dedicated 60-seconds of an Italian gig to his anti-Brexit views.
Playing in Verona, the British singer said he was “ashamed” of his country.
Just before he started his 1995 song Believe, he took a pause to say: “I’m ashamed of my country for what it has done.
“It’s torn people apart. I am sick to death of politicians, especially British politicians.
“I am sick to death of Brexit. I am a European.
“I am not a stupid, colonial, imperialist English idiot.”
The musician has voiced his thoughts about Brexit on other occasions too.

Sting, the former Police vocalist, also said that Brexit was a “disaster”.
In an interview with France’s Le Parisian newspaper, Sting said: “I hope Brexit won’t happen.
“It has been nearly three years since the UK voted to leave the EU ,and I am yet to hear a good reason to leave.
“Not one. It’s all lies, hot air.
“The Leave vote was a disaster. I think we need to stay in the EU.
“It isn’t perfect but it’s only by staying in it that we will be able to change it.”
