Melbourne: Elton John has been escorted offstage after torrential rain interrupted his outdoor show in Victoria’s Yarra Valley.
The wild weather struck about an hour and a half into the performer’s Friday night set, A Day on the Green festival organisers said.
“Unfortunately due to tonight’s short but heavy downpour that occurred 95 minutes into Elton John’s set resulting in damage to musical instruments and monitors on stage, the show could not continue,” a post on the event’s Facebook page said.
“We too are upset about the impact of the weather on tonight’s show. Please hang on to your tickets to await further information.”
