Elton John Reschedules Concerts Planned for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Wedding Weekend

By

Elton John has cleared his calendar for one particular weekend in May. 

The 70-year-old singer -- who recently revealed that he'll soon be embarking on his final tour -- announced on Friday that due to a scheduling conflict, he has pushed back his concerts at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas that were set for Friday, May 18 and Saturday, May 19. This just so happens to be the weekend that Prince Harry is to wed Meghan Markle. 

The Million Dollar Piano performances will now take place on Sunday, May 6 and Wednesday, May 16. 

While at this year's GRAMMYs, ET's Cameron Mathison asked John if he would be attending and/or performing at the highly anticipated royal wedding on May 19.

"I have no idea. No one's been invited yet," the music icon shared. John's husband, David Furnish, added, "Crossing our fingers!"

In an earlier interview with ITV's Lorraine, John -- who was friends with Harry's late mother, Princess Diana -- opened up about the 33-year-old prince's engagement. "I spent some time with him at Google camp in Sicily last summer, and I could tell that he was totally in love," he gushed. "And I thought, 'Good for you.'"

John added, "When people get married, you want it to last. You want them to be happy. I'm happy for him. I hope they have a wonderful day."
