Elton John ready to stage brand new musical 13 years after Billy Elliot opened

Elton John has revealed he has written a musical which is “waiting to go”.

The 71-year-old, who wrote the music for Billy Elliot the Musical and Aida, worked with Scissor Sisters star Jake Shears on the production.

He did not say what the new show is about.

Sir Elton added he had two warehouses full of old stage costumes, which he plans to display at exhibitions around the world.

The father of two boys is retiring from live shows after his current tour.

He told the George Ezra & Friends podcast: “I am not tied to rock and roll. Ten years ago I would have probably died on stage.

“Having children has changed everything about my life. It has given me purpose and direction.”
