Elton John stopped his concert dead in its tracks Saturday night, after his piano failed miserably.
The OG Rocket Man was pissed when the instrument seemed to freeze up during his hit, "Philadelphia Freedom." Elton dropped an f-bomb or 2 and the crowd at Ford Center in Evansville, Indiana loved it.
Elton wasn't going to budge until the ivories did him justice ... and with the help of a tech who tinkered for 10 minutes, the piano was back on track and the show went on.
'Hang on, hang on - something's gone wrong here,' the English rock icon said, growing impatient as the problems weren't remedied fast enough for his liking.
He barked at his crew, 'Come on you a******s! That's no good,' before explaining to the crowd that his restlessness was for their benefit.
'Sorry about this, but I can't play it when it's not sounding right,' the eight-time Grammy-winner explained to the audience. 'I don't want you to have anything but 100 percent perfection here.'
The English artist took something of a collaborative approach with an engineer, saying, 'OK, let's try that one; no, that's no good either ... come on fix this, for f***'s sake!'
'Thank you, well done crew,' he told his support team, telling the crowd, 'They are not assholes, it's just frustrating when things go wrong cause I want things to be perfect for you guys.'
