[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Elton John[/lastfm] will pull double duty on April 2 on Saturday Night Live. He’ll host and share the stage with fellow musical guest [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Leon Russell[/lastfm]. This will be Elton’s first time as host and first return to the show in nearly 30 years.

Elton last appeared on SNL back in Season 7 on April 17, 1982 as the musical guest. Johnny Cash hosted that night.   Elton performed “Empty Garden” (a tribute to John Lennon) and “Ball and Chain.”

Check out this clip of Elton John talking about his tour with Leon Russell and how he was influenced by him.
