Sir Elton John was in spectacular form as he returned from illness to perform at Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee concert in London on Monday evening.
The Rocket Man returned to the stage on Sunday night for the first time since he was diagnosed with pneumonia and hospitalised.
And he was back behind the piano on Monday for pal Gary Barlow’s royal celebration outside Buckingham Palace.
Sir Elton hit the stage wearing a sparkling pink blazer, and performed his survival hit I’m Still Standing and followed it up with Your Song and Crocodile Rock.
Earlier in the star-studded show, Robbie Williams, Dame Shirley Bassey, Sir Cliff Richard, Tom Jones and Kylie Minogue had entertained the Queen and members of the royal family, along with over 10,000 music fans who lined The Mall.
Barlow organised the event to mark the Queen’s 60-year reign. The concert closed a weekend of celebrations all over Britain.
