"Fucking pieces of shit, you both are."

Sir Elton John has kicked off his goodbye tour of Australia in true Elton style, by calling a couple of security guards ‘cunts’ as they attempted to escort a fan from the venue.

John was on stage at Perth’s HBF Park for his second show of the mammoth Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour when he addressed two security guards, who were apparently trying to remove a fan from the front row.

For whatever reason — no footage of the incident is available — John obviously thought their actions were heavy-handed, and decided to give them a proper dressing down.

“Hey you two security guards with the girl, fuck off,” he yelled, to yells of support from the crowd. “Get back here immediately, come on you cunts.”

He went on to call the pair “morons” and “turds”, before telling the guards to leave the girl alone. “Fucking pieces of shit, you both are,” he told them. “You don’t treat girls like that.”

Watch footage of the excellent rant below.

According to Today Perth presenter Louise Momber, as reported by The Sydney Morning Herald, John apologised for the outburst after he finished the next song.

“He was so angry,” she 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.”

Elton John will spend the next three months playing shows across the country, stopping in basically every city and town that will have him — for all tickets and details, head here. By the sounds of it, it’ll be a great show.
