Before performing the song, the artist took a short break during which he remembered Elizabeth II, telling fans how much influence the Queen has had on his life. Her image appeared on the screens during John’s speech.
“I am 75 years old. She’s been with me my whole life, I’m so sad she’s gone, but I’m glad she’s at peace and I’m glad she’s resting. She deserved it because she worked hard.
I send my love to her family and loved ones. We will miss her, but her spirit lives on, and tonight we celebrate her life with music,” said the artist sensitively.
“She was an inspirational person. I was there for her and she was fantastic. The Queen has led the country through its greatest and darkest moments with kindness, decency, genuine care and warmth,” he added during the concert.
After such a speech, the musician performed the song “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me” in honor of the late matriarch, writes ew.com.
On the same day before the concert, E. John also wrote about the death of the queen on his social networks.
“Like the entire nation, I am deeply saddened to hear the news of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s death. Queen Elizabeth has been a huge part of my life from childhood to this day and I will miss her dearly,” he wrote.
John wasn’t the only one who took time during his performance to remember the British icon. During his performance at Madison Square Garden, Harry Styles asked concertgoers to give Queen a standing ovation for her “70 years of service.”
