ELTON John unleashed a tirade on two security guards last night, calling them “c—ts” and “morons”.

The music legend interrupted his concert at HBF Park in Perth as the security guards were mid-way through ejecting a woman from the crowd.

“Hey you two security guards with the girl … F— off,” he said.

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

There was a brief pause, before Sir Elton continued: “Morons. Both of you — morons!”

“You don’t treat girls like that. Leave her alone you turds. She’s done nothing wrong.”

Sir Elton followed the outburst by apologising for the ‘C-bomb’.

But the tirade didn’t seem to phase his dedicated fans, who cheered as the star came to the woman’s aid.

Sunday night’s concert was the second Perth gig as part of Sir Elton’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, before he retires to spend time with husband David Furnish and their two sons.

The concert took fans through 50 years of hits, as Sir Elton thanked fans for his extraordinary career, repeatedly expressing his gratitude to the crowd.

He chatted with the crowd about his writing process, getting sober, and the establishment of his Elton John AIDS Foundation.

With costume changes and vibrant graphics accompanying the concert, fans sang along with favourites while others danced in the aisles.

A VenuesWest spokeswoman said a female patron was removed during the show from front of stage, with the approval of Sir Elton’s security representative on stage.

“Under the circumstances, the security team acted appropriately and we (VenuesWest and security) worked together with Elton’s team to ensure that the event was safe and successful for the artist and the patrons,” she said.
