Elton had one of his infamous tantrums at Friday’s Million Dollar Piano show, making a watery mess onstage and tossing a stool while hinting that heads were going to roll.
Stagehands at the Colosseum were seen mopping up water four times. The 65-year-old would take a drink from a water container, then angrily splash it onstage.
A smattering of boos were heard during his blowup.
During the series of outbursts, the singer appeared to be angry at his management team, suggesting in X-rated language that someone was getting “(bleeping) fired,” a source told the Review-Journal.
Near the end of the concert, showgoers were allowed onstage to dance to Saturday Night’s Alright (For Fighting), but the band stopped abruptly and the people were ushered back off stage.
The headliner came out for the finale, The Circle of Life, and then left the stage.
The audience gave him an ovation for about five minutes, hoping for an encore, but he didn’t return.
An attendee reported that he didn’t say ”a word to the audience or a thank you to the band.”
His latest diva behavior may have been costly. The show was being filmed by almost a dozen cameras.
