British rock legend Elton John will perform the post-race show at the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix this October. The announcement was made via press release from the Circuit of the Americas (COTA) in Austin, Texas.
The sea of musicians, backstage crew and hangers-on parts reverentially as Elton John's mum approaches, making a beeline for the singer in the purple and gilt Versace suit. This dressing room may be on the small side for a superstar, but she doesn't seem to notice.
Jake Shears, who can currently be seen on the Los Angeles stage in Bent, is at work with another musical theater-inclined rock star! In a recent interview with The Advocate, the Scissor Sisters front man revealed that he is collaborating with Elton John on a new musical, the details of which he can’t yet reveal.
