A rather embarrassing moment during his last concert in Paris.
We told you about it last week in our Journal du Rock: Elton John resumed the road of its farewell tour, initially announced in 2018, started in 2020 and interrupted from its debut in Australia due to COVID.
After having given concerts in the United States from last January, two years after his last live performances, he recently ignited Milan and Paris at the beginning of June.
But during his concert on June 10, 2022 in the French capital, everything did not go as he hoped. Everything had started well: the star chained his hits with the professionalism that we know him in front of the 30,000 spectators of the Paris La Defense Arena.
But suddenly, as he started his hit “Sad Songs”, Elton John suddenly became very annoyed. To the point of stopping singing and asking his musicians to stop playing to start the song again. He then takes the floor to address the technician responsible for sound monitoring: “I just want to talk to my sound engineer: can you adjust the sound correctly between the piano and the microphone, bor****?” And he goes on to insult him and literally call him a “Fucking Idiot”!
