Speaking with the Glastonbury festival newspaper the Glastonbury Free Press, Emily said that the international pop star had been “very involved” with the festival.
Adding: “What a send-off that’s going to be. I cannot wait to welcome him in and show him what Glastonbury is all about.
“We have so many artists playing here and often we don’t have much direct contact. But Elton has been very involved and we’ve worked really closely. He’s so excited and engaged with what Glastonbury is.”
Emily also revealed that Elton John had also called her “out of the blue” in a “surreal” experience.
