''He will of course be in my thoughts as I play in the town where he once worked. As you all know I love my football – music aside it is one of my great passions, and I wish Airdrieonians FC every success next season and beyond.''
Elton added: ''I look forward to returning to Scotland where you can always feel the passion of the fans.
''I am no stranger to playing in Scotland, but this is the first time in Airdrie and I look forward to playing songs from the latest album and of course playing all the fan favourites for a new audience.''
The Justin Campaign was later founded to address homophobia in football.
Along with raising awareness, there has been a strong focus on art, events, education and football.
