The singer paid tribute to late rapper Mac Miller during the opening show of his final world tour in Pennsylvania.
Sir Elton dedicated his song “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me” to Miller, after he was found unresponsive in his home in Los Angeles on Friday morning.
Last night, he told the crowd:
“I would like to dedicate this song to Mac Miller who, unbelievably, at 26 years of age passed away yesterday.
“It’s inconceivable that someone so young, and with so much talent, could do that and I would just like to pass all of our love and best wishes to his loved ones, his family, his friends.
“And Mac, wherever you are, I hope you’re happy now.”
Sir Elton joins a stream of stars who have paid tribute to Miller, including Ed Sheeran, Drake, Chance The Rapper and Post Malone.
Mac Miller’s ex girlfriend and close friend, Ariana Grande, also paid tribute to him. The singer posted a picture of the rapper to her Instagram last night.
