Bad weather shortens Elton John concert

Elton John’s outdoor gig in Blackpool was cut short after the weather turned bad.

Sir Elton’s show at the new arena on the Tower Festival’s headland was the first ever gig at the new venue.

Police had to intervene and ask Sir Elton to stop the show although he did get two hours into his set.

Blackpool was pelted by rain all day before the show and continued as the concert began.

“The police say you need to leave right now in an orderly fashion,” Elton told the crowd. “I’m sorry but I don’t want anyone to be hurt. I’ll make it up to you.”

The concert was his first show in Blackpool since 1977.

Elton John will tour Australia later this year.
