Sir Elton John and Taron Egerton have just revealed they are set to perform a special concert in Los Angeles!

The 72-year-old singer and the Rocketman actor will join forces for Rocketman: Live in Concert at the city's Greek Theatre on 17 October, an event which will see them take to the stage alongside the Hollywood Symphony Orchestra, who will play live-to-picture all the songs from the biopic.

Announcing the exciting news, Elton said: "I'm thrilled to debut 'Rocketman: Live in Concert'.

"I can think of no better city than Los Angeles to bring the magic of this movie to life and perform live with the Hollywood Symphony Orchestra. I can't wait for the audience to experience the film in a new and profound way."

It is currently unclear which songs Elton and Taron will perform at the show, which will be produced by the movie's music producer, Giles Martin.

Taron - who played Elton in Rocketman - admitted he finds singing in front of the music legend "intimidating".

He said of shooting the movie when Elton was on set: "There's really nothing more intimidating than performing in front of Elton."

And it was previously revealed the 29-year-old actor spent almost two months learning the piano from Michael L. Roberts, Rocketman's vocal, piano, and performance coach.

When asked how long he worked with Taron on the instrument, Michael said: "It worked out as about two to three hours a day, five days a week, for six to eight weeks in pre-production. And then I was there on set with him every time he was at the piano to give reminders and help structure each scene."
