Elton John stormed off stage after a fan - one of a number who had been invited on to the stage - kept on interrupting his performance in Las Vegas.

In footage obtained by US entertainment site TMZ, the 70-year-old singer can be seen becoming incredibly frustrated at a fan during a rendition of his upbeat classic, Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting.

The concert-goer repeatedly attempted to touch Elton and play his keyboard, which reportedly led the singer to tell the man to "f**k off" before deciding enough was enough and leaving the stage mid-song.

After the song finished, and the members of the audience had returned to their seats, Elton came back onto the stage.

He told the audience, before performing Circle Of Life: "No more coming on stage during Saturday Night, you f***ed it up!" It is believed the person was swiftly escorted from the venue.

John recently announced that his beloved dog Arthur - who reportedly served as the best man at his 2014 wedding - has died at the age of 14.

According to The Blast, Elton made the confession during his show in Las Vegas on Friday night, where he proceeded to dedicate his hit track Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me to the late cocker spaniel.

Last month, Elton announced that he will retire from touring after his upcoming 300-date Farewell Yellow Brick Road world tour, which he says could take up to three years to complete and will include a show in Dublin's 3Arena on June 12, 2019.
