Elton John Curses Faulty Piano During Concert Hold-Up

Elton John Curses Faulty Piano During Concert Hold-Up

Elton John had to halt his concert in Evansville, Indiana on Saturday after suffering sound
issues with his piano. He was in the middle of playing his song Philadelphia Freedom at the
Ford Center when the grand piano faltered, prompting the singer to interrupt his band and
stop the music. “Hang on, hang on. Something’s gone wrong here,” he told the packed crowd,
before swearing at the mishap. “C’mon you a**holes! That’s no good. Sorry about this, but I
can’t play it when it’s not sounding right. I don’t want you to have anything but 100 percent
perfection here.” In video footage posted on, a technician is shown running out
onstage to tinker with the ivories, but when the problems persisted, Elton exclaimed, “C’mon,
fix this, for f**k’s sake!”, much to the audience’s delight. He was able to get the show back on
track a few minutes later, and he quickly apologized for his bad language.

Elton John will be performing in Portland, ME Friday, November 17, 2017, at the Cross Insurance Arena.
