Elton John hit in the mouth by flying Mardi Gras beads


Wednesday night was almost all right for fighting for Elton John.
The singer was performing his hit song “Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting” at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas when a Mardi Gras beads necklace came flying at his mouth, causing him to stop singing and playing piano, video shows.
Sir Elton had reportedly just invited the front row of fans to join him on stage for the song and as they all sang along, the beads struck him in the mouth. He stopped to repeatedly check his teeth for several seconds while the band continued to play.

Eventually, despite his anger and worry over his pearly whites, John, 70, continued to play the song after wiping his mouth with a cloth to check for any blood.
A hardcore fan posted video singing along with Elton and stopped the clip in horror when the beads came flying at his face.
“A very stupid man strikes Elton with a necklace, he could throw away anything,” the fan wrote, along with video of the encounter.
On Jan. 24, Sir Elton announced that he would be retiring after his next tour, which would comprise of a 300-concert world tour beginning in September and running the course of the next three years.
“I don't want to go out with a whimper,” John told host Anderson Cooper at an event announcing his retirement. “I want to go out with a big bang.”
