    Sir Elton John is in the thick of his last-ever tour—dubbed the Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour—and recently surprised fans in Hove, United Kingdom by inviting Rocketman actor Taron Egerton out onstage to perform “Your Song.”

    Egerton plays John in the biopic, which has been touching down in theaters this week, and was the musician’s first-ever live guest on the Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour since it began last September. Seated at his trusty piano, John tackled the opening with gusto, passing the baton to Egerton—also wearing tinted sunglasses, a Rocketman calling card—for the next verse. The two men performed their duet seamlessly, thickening the vocal melodies with grace.

    It’s not the first time John has dueted with his silver screen equivalent. They performed “Rocketman” together at an afterparty for the film’s Cannes premiere, and “Tiny Dancer” during the musician’s annual AIDS Foundation Academy Award Party.
