Elton John stopped his concert at
Barclaycard Arena in Hamburg, Germany to honor his late mother, Sheila
Farebrother on Tuesday.

Elton addressed the crowd to share
the sad news of her sudden passing.

“Yesterday was a sad and hard
day for me because my mother passed away. I’m glad to say she passed away
peacefully, with no pain. But maybe sooner than she should have done, so I was quite
shocked. And I was thinking how I could pay tribute to her tonight and what
song I should choose,” Elton explained.
