When the singer took the stage as part of the Monte Carlo Sporting Summer Festival, two rich fans were embroiled in an argument but security guards could intervene to stop them from fighting.
Elton John's recent residency in Monaco was rudely interrupted one night when two women began violently feuding in the audience. The "Rocket Man" took to the stage at the Stars Room last week, performing five shows on consecutive nights from August 2 as part of the Monte Carlo Sporting Summer Festival.
But two rich fans caused a fuss during one gig when a 70-year-old woman became embroiled in an argument with a younger concert attendee. A source tells the New York Post's gossip column Page Six, "When (the) younger blonde turned around, (the 70 year old) grabbed her hair and pulled out a gigantic blonde weave."
The violence quickly escalated and security guards were forced to intervene to stop them from slapping and kicking one another before escorting the females from the venue. But John refused to let the scuffle impact his show. The witness says, "The crazy thing was that Elton never missed a beat. He noticed the brawl but kept on singing 'Tiny Dancer'. It was unbelievable."
