A month after it was reported that the musician was in talks to appear in the sequel to last year’s Kingsman: The Secret Service, Elton has confirmed on Instagram that he’s joined the cast.

“It’s been a long time since Tommy….. #Kingsman,” he wrote, referencing his involvement in The Who‘s 1975 musical film Tommy.

The Instagram photo is an ad for Kingsman: The Golden Circle that states, “Wednesday night’s alright for fighting,” a nod to Elton’s classic “Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting.”

Kingsman: The Golden Circle, featuring returning star Taron Egerton as well as new cast members Julianne Moore, Halle Berry and Channing Tatum, is scheduled to open in June of 2017.
