LONDON, ENGLAND - JUNE 03: Elton John performs live at Twickenham Stoop on June 3, 2017 in London, England.

Elton John has been letting fans join him on stage during “Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting” but it’s safe to say that has all come to an end…

A fan annoyed Elton John so much it caused Elton to walk offstage in the middle of “Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting” at his Thursday night (March 1) concert.

John released the following statement about what went down during his “Saturday Night” performance:

“Thursday night in Las Vegas a fan put his hands on the piano keys while I was playing and continued to do so even after I asked him to stop. He then proceeded to reach over the piano and try to take pictures, completely disrupting the performance. I bring fans onstage every evening when we play ‘Saturday Night’ in the set, it is always a lovely part of the show where I get to meet them, shake their hands and have them right there with me while I play. They have always been very courteous to the fact we are in the middle of playing a song live. This guy was rude, disruptive and had no care or respect for our show and so I let him know how I felt, then left the stage until they had removed him.”
