Elton John lashed out at the men in an uncharacteristically lengthy and profane tirade that echoed throughout HBF Park in Perth over the weekend.

Sir Elton John's farewell world tour is now in Australia, where the musician performing his second show in Perth last night.

While between songs, he said: "Hey, you two security guards with the girl, f**k off". She's also said to have coined the phrase "The Bitch Is Back", another John hit, and was reportedly a catalyst for his signature over-the-top onstage look. "Come on you cunts". You don't treat girls like that! Morons, you both are, morons.

"Leave her alone you turds".

Soon after, the Hall of Famer shed some light on his angry moment.

"I apologize for the "c-word", I just hate people being assaulted, especially women by security guards".

But Elton John has performed through far more trying circumstances, including wearing a diaper while performing for a Las Vegas audience in 2017, according to a candid interview with BBC One.

Things took a turn, however, when Sir Elton noticed a pair of security guards ejecting a woman from the venue and leapt to her defence.

Elton's final lap of Australia and New Zealand will see the veteran artist play 40 arena and open-air shows through the southern summer.
