Elton John slams security guards

London, June 14 (IANS) Legendary British singer-songwriter Elton John hit out at security guards who tried to stop people dancing at his concert.

The 69-year-old musician was performing at the Leicestershire County Cricket Ground for 17,000 fans on June 11 when he hit out at stewards who were attempting to prevent fans from leaving their seats to dance, reports dailymail.co.uk.

“Security guards, sit down or I’m not going to do the rest of the concert and you will end up in f***ing trouble. Now sit down you p****s,” John said.

Fans welcomed his intervention, with one Julia Hage saying: “Hated the fun police who wouldn’t let me stand at the end of the row so I could see… After Elton intervened we were able to stand, dance and drink in the 30m of grass which separated us from the next block”.

Meanwhile, another fan Luc Benoit added: “Elton loves people to have fun at his concerts and will not tolerate security guards being too firm with people”.

A representative for John said: “Elton played a full set of well over two hours. He did ask a few of the security people to relax and let the audience stand up and dance if they wanted to”.
