“He was so angry”: Elton John stuns concertgoers with onstage rant
Sir Elton John surprised fans with a foul-mouthed tirade at “moron” security guards during his concert in Perth on Sunday night.
He was in Perth performing on his Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour, but halfway through his three-hour concert, John spotted a woman being removed from the concert by security guards.
He stopped the show and demanded the lady be returned to her seat.
“Hey, you two security guards with the girl … F**k off,” Elton can be heard saying in a video doing the rounds on social media. “Let her up here immediately … come on, you c**ts.

“Morons, both of you, morons. You don’t treat girls like that. Leave her alone you turds!”
It is currently unknown why the woman was being removed from the concert.
Elton John just called out venue security guards live on stage for aggressively accosting a fan at his Perth show.
“You don’t treat girls like that.”

Channel 9 presenter Louise Momber was in the crowd and spoke to the Sydney Morning Herald that the singer apologised 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.
"It was certainly a side of Sir Elton I'd never seen before.
"One of the biggest music stars in the world – and he took on Perth security guards."
