‘Leave her alone you turds’: Elton John shouts and swears at security guards removing woman from his Perth show

Elton John launched an expletive-ridden tirade against security guards who were attempting to remove a woman from his show in Perth.

The singer, who is on his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, was performing in Perth on Sunday (1 December) when he saw bouncers escorting a female fan out of the HBF Park Stadium.

“Hey, you two security guards with the girl, f*** off,” he said, in footage posted on Twitter.

“Let her up here immediately… come on, you c***s.”

He added: “Morons, both of you, morons. You don’t treat girls like that. Leave her alone, you turds!”

John’s outburst was met with laughter and cheers from the audience.

Today Perth presenter Louise Momber told the Sydney Morning Herald: “He was so angry. 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.”

John is currently on the fourth leg of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, which began in September 2018 and is due to wrap up with three nights at London’s O2 Arena in December 2020.
