The popstar was greeted by a driver to take him into Liverpool city centre as he got off the plane.
It comes after Elton was stunned when he was told the true story behind his smash hit Rocket Man.
The singer had sat down for an interview with his songwriter Bernie Taupin, and the two spoke candidly about the origins of the song.
Sir Elton and Bernie, 72, are long-time collaborators after meeting in 1967 when they both answered an advert for songwriting.
Since then, they have collaborated on more than 30 albums, with Bernie writing the lyrics for songs such as Tiny Dancer and Candle In The Wind.
But as they spoke about Rocket Man, Elton admitted he didn’t know the true inspiration behind it.
Elton said: ‘Rocket Man was our first ever number one record I think. And it was on the Honky Chateau record.
‘It was a pretty easy song to write a melody to, because it’s a song about space so it’s quite a spacious song.’

Songwriter: It comes after Sir Elton’s friend and longtime collaborator Bernie Taupin revealed Rocketman was inspired by The Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury
The hit was certified as Double Platinum and was listed in Rolling Stone’s greatest 500 songs of all time.
Its space theme is obvious, with many comparing it to David Bowie’s Space Oddity.
But Bernie then revealed an additional source of inspiration.
He said: ‘It was actually a song inspired by Ray Bradbury from his book of science-fiction short stories called The Illustrated Man.
‘In that book there was a story called The Rocket Man, which was about how astronauts in the future would become sort of an everyday job so I kinda took that idea and ran with it.’
Shocked, his friend replied: ‘Do you know, I never knew that…’
Posting the conversation on Instagram, the singer wrote ‘You learn something new every day!’
One person commented: ‘After all these years, Bernie still has secrets! ❤️’
Another said: ‘You know what? I could watch Elton and Bernie taking about their songs and songwriting in general for ours and ours. That would be a program I would like to see.’
Meanwhile a third said: ‘I KNEW it was related to Bradbury’s story!!’
The 1972 hit inspired the singer’s nickname, and also became the name of his 2019 biopic Rocketman, which tells the story of Sir Elton’s life.

The song repeats the lyrics ‘I think it’s going to be a long long time’, describing an astronaut’s conflicting feelings towards travelling away from Earth and towards Mars.
Meanwhile, Sir Elton’s career continues to reach new highs. Last week he revealed that he has made a song with country legend Dolly Parton, although an official release date is yet to be announced.
Rumors have been going around that they worked together to remix a version of Elton’s 1974 hit single, Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me.
Previously, Dolly said she wanted Elton to feature on her forthcoming rock covers album.
