Wait, Elton…I thought “love is the answer”?

I can agree that fans can and should be exacting and should criticize. However, booing over this is bullshit and those people who did it were classless.
If I’d flown there for that show, I’d have been thrilled. It was a great gig, short yet substantial.

I don’t think it’s about “anyone who criticizes me is not a fan,” I think it’s about knowing that most of the people booing at that gig could not have been there with open hearts as fans but were instead haters sent in from Le Pen or were carried away by those Le Pen plants.
Anyone who went to that gig who would literally BOO is an asshole, period. It was a fantastic performance with two brand-new numbers.
The only thing I’d say is it should have been free or should have been clearly marketed as what it was—a brief, but special, promo show.
