I'm so, so proud of @ladygaga , whose new record #Chromatica is even better than I could have imagined. It was an honour to be a part of it and I hope you all love #SineFromAbove as much as I do!

#OnThisDay in 1979, I played the final show of my tour of the Soviet Union, in Moscow. Being one of the first Western artists to tour the Soviet Union was an incredible experience - it was one of the most memorable and happy tours I had ever been on. Working with @raycooperofficial , with just the two of us on stage, was equally exhilarating and challenging, but that last show in Moscow was probably one of the best concerts I’ve ever given in my life. 🚀 #tbt

Larry Kramer’s passing is the saddest news. We have lost a giant of a man who stood up for gay rights like a warrior. His anger was needed at a time when gay men’s deaths to AIDS were being ignored by the American government: a tragedy that made the Gay Men’s Health Crisis and ACT UP movements so vital. He never stopped shouting about the injustices against us. His voice was the loudest and the most effective. Larry Kramer captured the outrage and spirit of these turbulent times in his brilliant play “The Normal Heart” along with his many other writings. I was proud to know him and his legacy must be maintained. My heart goes out to his beloved husband David Webster. Love, Elton @ejaf #RIP

It’s hard to believe it’s already been a year since the #Rocketman premiere in London. I’m so proud of the film. It’s a musical fantasy of my life story, but it still manages to authentically capture the true spirit of what I went through. I am forever grateful to @taron .egerton for his transcendent performance. And to everyone else who put their heart and soul into bringing Rocketman to the big screen. 🚀🚀 #tbt

When I was in Australia earlier this year, I was heartbroken to see the effects the bushfires have had - taking homes and lives, and devastating wildlife. At my show in Sydney on January 7, I pledged to help and I’m now incredibly proud to announce that together with our friends and partners at @aegpresents , @chuggentertainment and @frontiertouring , $1 million has been paid out to WIRES Wildlife Rescue, Wildlife Victoria, Australia Zoo Wildlife Rescue, the Foundation for Rural & Regional Renewal and South Australia Bushfire Appeal. My heart goes out to those of you have lost loved ones and lost your homes – I hope your lives will be repaired very soon. I love Australia and can’t wait to return xx 🚀 🇦🇺 (Photo: Coffs Harbour, 25 February 2020. 📸 @bengibsonphoto )

One year ago this week, on May 16 2019, #Rocketman debuted to the world at #CannesFilmFestival . It was a magical day for me that I will never forget and I am still so thankful to everyone who worked hard to bring my life story to the big screen. The film is fabulous and I am incredibly touched by all the praise it has received in the last 12 months. 🚀 #tbt @taron .egerton @bernietaupinofficial @rocketmanmovie

I'm so grateful to @Jack for matching our @EJAF $1m COVID-19 Emergency Fund. When I told Jack what we have heard from our frontline partners, about how overwhelming the need is in the communities that we support, he offered to help. They need PPE for staff, virtual systems for online appointments for continued care and home delivery systems for HIV treatment and testing. We can't let #COVID19 jeopardise HIV prevention and care for the most marginalised communities. From all of us @EJAF and our partners, thank you Jack. 🚀

Without a doubt - musically, vocally and visually - he was my biggest influence. Seeing him live in my teens was the most exciting event in my life at that point. Goosebumps, electricity and joy came from every pore. His records still sound fresh and the opening few seconds of “Tutti Frutti” are the most explosive in music history. I was lucky enough to work with him for my “Duets” album in 1993. He was shy and funny and I was SO nervous. The track we recorded “The Power” is a favourite in my catalogue. We also played live at the Beverly Hilton and I felt like I’d died and gone to heaven. He influenced so many and is irreplaceable. A true legend, icon and a force of nature. #RIP Little Richard Love, Elton x #LittleRichard

My video for ‘Sacrifice’ has just passed 300 MILLION views on @youtube ! Thank you so much. ‘Sacrifice’ has always been an important song to me, as it was my first solo single to reach #1 in the charts at home in the UK when it was released 30 years ago, in May 1990. #tbt #ThrowbackThursday

I love #EddieVedder . Of all the people I’ve met in the music industry, he’s gotta be up there in the top 5 loveliest people in the world. I played @pearljam ’s new record on this week’s episode of #RocketHour , which you can hear today on @beats1official . 📸 @bengibsonphoto

#ThrowbackThursday to this day in 1976 when my ‘Here and There’ live record came out. The ‘Here’, was at the Royal Festival Hall in London, in May 1974. This photo was taken by Sam Emerson on the first day of my US tour, on September 25, 1974. ‘There’ was recorded at #MadisonSquareGarden later that year. It was only the second time I had played MSG and I never could have guessed I would go to on play there more than 70 times! #TBT

Tom Moore is an amazing man with a huge heart. What he has raised for the NHS is phenomenal and has inspired me to join the legions of other British citizens contributing to his fundraising efforts. Captain Moore demonstrates a triumph of the human spirit and shows us all how one person can make a big difference. @captaintommoore @nhs P.S. Congratulations on your Number 1 record. For a 99 year old that’s not too shabby!! 👏🏻😃💪🏼🇬🇧❤️👍🏻🚀
