Elton John will headline the Glastonbury Music Festival 2023 for what will be the final U.K. show of his farewell tour.

Glastonbury Festival organizer Emily Eavis announced that the legendary musician will perform on the Pyramid Stage on Sunday, June 25, the music festival's final night.

"It gives me enormous pleasure to let you know that the one and only Elton John will be making his first ever Glastonbury appearance, headlining the Pyramid Stage on the Sunday night next year," Eavis said in a statement.

She added, "This will be the final U.K. show of Elton's last ever tour, so we will be closing the Festival and marking this huge moment in both of our histories with the mother of all send offs. We are so very happy to finally bring the Rocket Man to Worthy Farm."

With the Glastonbury show, the U.K. leg of John's "Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour" will come to close.
