Elton John blasts Perth security guards in a foul-mouthed tirade during concert

WARNING: Offensive language.

 

Sir Elton John launched a foul-mouthed tirade at a couple of "moron" security guards during his concert in Perth over the weekend.

The 72-year-old music legend kicked off the Australian leg of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour at Perth's HBF Park Stadium on Saturday and was infuriated halfway through his three-hour extravaganza when he saw two members of venue staff trying to remove a woman from the show.

Elton abruptly stopped the show and demanded the lady be returned to her seat.

"Hey, you two security guards with the girl … F*** off," Elton can be heard saying in video footage from the gig which has since gone viral.

"Let her up here immediately … come on, you c****.

"Morons. Both of you morons. You don't treat girls like that. Leave her alone, you turds," he continued.

It is unknown why the woman was being removed from the concert, but the 'Candle in the Wind' hitmaker later apologised for his "rant".

Channel 9 presenter Louise Momber was in the crowd told The Sydney Morning Herald that Elton apologised for his outburst.

"He was so angry," Momber said.

"He said he can't stand violence against women and had to say something.

"He sang the next song and then immediately apologised for his rant — but said it's something he's really passionate about."

A spokesperson for the venue told the Sydney Morning Herald newspaper: "Under the circumstances, the security team acted appropriately and we (VenuesWest and security) worked together with Elton's team to ensure that the event was safe and successful for the artist and the patrons."

Elton is touring New Zealand in February next year, with two shows at Auckland's Mt Smart Stadium and one show at Dunedin's Forsyth Barr Stadium.
