Elton John To Headline Festival’s Iconic Pyramid Stage In Final UK show

Elton John is the first headline performer to be announced for Glastonbury Festival 2023.

 

The Official Charts Record Breaker – who boasts the UK’s biggest-selling single of all time – is set to play the iconic Worthy Farm next summer, in what will be the final UK date of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour.

 

Elton tops the bill on Sunday, June 25 2023, and explains he can’t wait to play ‘the greatest festival in the world.’

 

Announcing the news, Elton said: “There is no more fitting way to say goodbye to my British fans.

 

“I can’t wait to embrace the spirit of the greatest festival in the world. It’s going to be incredibly emotional.”

 

Elton’s headline Glastonbury slot will now be the final UK date of his farewell tour. The 350-date tour, first announced five years ago, was originally due to conclude in 2021; though multiple postponements throughout the COVID pandemic and a hip injury caused delays.

 

Confirming the news this morning, Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis said: “It gives me enormous pleasure to let you know that the one and only Elton John will be making his first ever Glastonbury appearance, headlining the Pyramid Stage on Sunday night next year.

 

“This will be the final UK show of Elton’s last-ever tour, so we will be closing the Festival and marking this huge moment in both of our histories with the mother of all send-offs.”

“The festival’s genuine, enthusiastic support for the best emerging talent is something I’ve long admired.”

Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Divorce Settled! Kim Gets $200k A Month In Child Support

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have settled their divorce.

The former husband and wife have resolved both child custody and property-related issues.

According to the settlement, Kim and Kanye will get joint custody with “equal access” to their 4 children. Although the docs say equal access, sources with direct knowledge tell us Kim will have the kids the lion’s share of the time. Even Kanye has acknowledged Kim already has the kids 80% of the time.

TMZ reports that Kanye will pay Kim $200,000 a month in child support and that he’s not footing the full bill for child support — that’s just his share. In addition, he’s responsible for 50% of their kids’ educational expenses, including tuition. He’s also responsible for 50% of their children’s security expenses.

 

Now, this is interesting … if there’s ever a dispute regarding the children, Kim and Kanye agree they will participate in mediation. If one of them fails to participate, the other gets to make the decision in a dispute by default. Not hard to read between the lines.

As for the $200k … it’s due the first day of each month and must be wired into her account.

As for property, the division of assets is in accordance with their prenup. And, according to the prenup, both Kim and Kanye waived spousal support.

Kim filed for divorce in February 2021 after 7 years of marriage. The divorce stalled because Kanye refused to engage, and Kim went to court last March to get an official decree ending the marriage, with both custody and property to be resolved at a later date.

 

The settlement came Monday, on the eve Kanye was scheduled to have his deposition taken in case the matter went to trial next month.

The book is now closed on the marriage of Kim and Kanye.
