|Elton attended Madonna show in France
Wednesday, August 27 2008
He famously accused her of lip-synching, but on August 26, 2008 Elton John had nothing but cheers for his former nemesis Madonna as she took to the stage in France.
Elton, accompanied by David Furnish, was spotted among the crowd as the 50-year-old singer's Sticky & Sweet tour rolled into Nice.
The high profile performers endured a very public feud after Elton launched into a tirade when he discovered that Madonna was up for Best Live Act at the Q awards in 2004. He said at the time: 'Madonna, best f---ing live act? F--- off. Since when has lip-synching been live? That's me off her fucking Christmas card list but do I give a toss? No.'
But it was clear on August 26, 2008 the dueling pair had long buried the hatchet, with Elton applauding enthusiastically between tracks. He wasn't Madonna's only VIP fan - U2 singer Bono was also seen at the concert.
The decadent show, which involves £1million of jewellery, again saw her perform many of her greatest hits as well as indulging in eight costume changes.
