Fan Got Too Close At Vegas Show And Elton John Didn't Like It
Elton John got upset at his fans during his concert in Las Vegas on Thursday. At one point, the 70-year-old singer even walked out.
In the viral video, John asked his fans to go up on stage for the fan encounter. After a large group surrounded his piano, John started singing "Saturday Night." However, some fans got a little too close to the award-winning musician.
During his performance, he asked some of his fans to f*** off, but they did not listen. John once again asked them to f*** off. After he finished his song, he stormed off the stage.
A few minutes later, the singer returned to his piano, and he told his fans that there would no longer be another fan encounter. He also told them that they messed up his concert, but the crowd did not seem to mind. They ended up laughing at John.

One of the concertgoers shared what he saw during John's show.
"During 'Saturday Night' they brought a ton of people on stage, and one guy wouldn't stop touching him. He went off mic and clearly mouthed f*** off twice and then pushed his hand. He left, and they cut the song short and ushered everyone off stage and escorted the guy out of the building," said the concertgoer.
