The music icon has made some alterations to his calendar, clearing one weekend in particular.
Elton John has made sure that he has no concerts planned for one particular weekend in May, that is of course the weekend the Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to get married.
Announcing a scheduling conflict on Friday, the 70-year-old singer has pushed his concerts at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas that were set for Friday, May 18 and Saturday, May 19. Instead, the performances will take place on Sunday, May 6 and Wednesday, May 16.
John, who was very close friends with Harry’s late mother, Princess Diana, has yet to confirm whether he has been invited or perhaps will he be performing at the royal wedding on May 19.
ET reported that when asked at this year’s GRAMMYs, John simply responded, “I have no idea. No one’s been invited yet.” John’s husband, however, gave a bit more of an enthusiastic answer saying, ”crossing our fingers!”
In a recent interview on ITV’s Lorraine, John spoke of how big a love Harry and Markle share.
“I spent some time with him at Google camp in Sicily last summer, and I could tell that he was totally in love.And I thought, ‘Good for you,'” Elton continued. “Both those boys seem to have be ecstatically happy and that’s all you want people to be, no matter who they are. When people get married, you want it to last. You want them to be happy. I’m happy for him. I hope they have a wonderful day.”
It’s safe to say that John’s rescheduling move, is almost as good as an official confirmation of attendance at the highly anticipated royal wedding.
