[ # ] Elton John explains why he lost it on Thursday night
March 3rd, 2018 under Elton John

On Thursday night, Elton John lost his cool and walked off the stage because a fan got too handsy with him while he was singing. Today, he took to Instagram to explain his side of the story.

Thursday night in Las Vegas a fan put his hands on the piano keys while I was playing and continued to do so even after I asked him to stop. He then proceeded to reach over the piano and try to take pictures, completely disrupting the performance. I bring fans onstage every evening when we play ‘Saturday Night’ in the set, it is always a lovely part of the show where I get to meet them, shake their hands and have them right there with me while I play. They have always been very courteous to the fact we are in the middle of playing a song live. This guy was rude, disruptive and had no care or respect for our show and so I let him know how I felt, then left the stage until they had removed him.

This is second incident in less than a month, which makes you wonder how much longer he will keep bringing people up on the stage for Saturday Night. Hopefully forever, or at least the next few years while he is still performing live.
