Sir Elton John, 73, has admitted he was very concerned about his hair when “gales” hit his concert earlier this year. The Your Song hitmaker was in Australia at the time when a storm disrupted his tour.
Due to the extreme weather conditions in Victoria’s Yarra Valley, Elton was eventually ushered off the stage by three assistants after performing for over 90 minutes.
Sir Elton explained the situation made him feel “incredibly conscious” of the fact he was wearing a wig and he was left with a “very real fear” his hairpiece would fly off.
The musician recalled the dramatic performance while reading from his autobiography on Instagram.
He said: “I found myself preoccupied by the challenge of attempting to play piano in the middle of the most torrential downpour I had ever experienced.

"Then the gales started which turned the rain horizontal.
“I could hear screams in the crowd, there were picnic baskets and chairs in the air.
“For the first time in my life I became incredibly conscious of the fact I was wearing a hairpiece.”
Elton then quipped: “There seemed every chance that before the song was over someone in Tasmania was going to find themselves wearing my wig.”
