Elton John and Kiki Dee reunited on stage for the first time in almost two decades at the weekend.

John was playing the last US date on his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour when Kiki joined him to perform their classic duet 'Don't Go Breaking My Heart'.

Elton and Kiki first joined forces to record the song way back in 1976, taking it to number one in the UK and the US.

They haven't performed it together since 2006, and Elton hasn't sung it in concert since 2016.

Elton's show at Dodger Stadium in LA was live-streamed on Disney+ and Kiki wasn't the only special guest,

Brandi Carlile joined Elton for 'Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me', which Elton previously performed live with George Michael at Live Aid in 1985 and again in 1991.

He opened his encore with another duet – 'Cold Heart (PNAU Remix)' – together with Dua Lipa.

Elton brings his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour back to the UK in 2023 for a series of arena shows.
