Exclusive: Britney Spears Rumored to Make Appearance at Elton John’s Final Dodgers Stadium Shows


You know that Britney Spears is on the comeback trail. She’s working on a new album, and has a book coming early in 2023 about her conservatorship, parents, and marriages.

No, she is not a great mother. She poses semi-nude on Instagram much to her teen sons’ chagrin.

But Britney has also had a hit all summer and fall with Elton John on “Hold Me Closer.” a rework of Elton’s “Tiny Dancer.”

Now I’m told that there’s a fairly good chance we’ll see Britney on stage with Sir Elton at Dodger Stadium for probably his final show on November 20th. By final I do mean the end of all Elton John touring forever. His “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour has been a smashing success despite breaks for COVID.

Will Britney do any of the preceding shows at Dodger Stadium? My guess is no, just to make that finale extra special. Who would I like to see at the final show? How about Kiki Dee, singing “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart.” I’d fly across the country see that. And Dua Lipa– who’s had a massive hit with Elton on “Cold Heart.” And I’ll bet Billie Jean King will be there. There should be lots of guests, but Britney will steal the show!

By the way, credit is being given to David Furnish for coming up with the Elton-Britney duet. You may recall Furnish teased me at the Tony Awards that he had something big in the offing. Their single has been streamed on Spotify over 105 million times!!! Not bad!
