Lyric Theatre Audience Happily Surprised by Superstar's Appearance

Written by Chief Editor.

On the 28th of November, Elton appeared onstage in Sydney, Australia.
 
It wasn't for one of his Down Under Farewell Yellow Brick Road concerts, though. The 72-year-old was at the Lyric Theatre, where he secretly watched a performance of Billy Elliot the Musical.

The songwriter took the stage for the final curtain call at Thursday's show wearing a purple jacket and metallic tracksuit pants and a matching tutu.

He remained there as the rest of the production's cast joined him to wave at the crowd and take their final bows.

While devotees were aware Elton was in the country, it seems even the cast and crew of the production were taken aback.

The official Instagram for Australia's Billy Elliot the Musical posted: "The company of Billy Elliot the Musical were surprised by a very special guest last night…SIR ELTON JOHN! Elton joined our cast on stage for the curtain call and the audience erupted into thunderous applause!"

 
Fans also weighed in, with one writing: ''I lost my mind. Never going to forget this night.''
