At the Berlin leg of Madonna’s Rebel Heart tour fans were pleasantly surprised by an unexpected support act.

Luther star Idris Elba, who has been working on his music career since the age of 14, kicked off the night at the Mercedes-Benz Arena with a DJ set. Though this may be a breakthrough for his alternate career, he’s no stranger to performing live following a performance at this year’s Glastonbury Festival.

The night was reportedly a success, with Madonna posting a photo of herself and the 43-year-old actor on her instagram – the caption read “Idris Elba saves the world one banana at a time – House DJ extraordinaire. The Queen is happy”.
