Too Loo For Zero: Elton Notices Reactions to New Music in Concert

Written by Chief Editor.

Elton recently made an observation about when he tries to play new songs at his concerts.

 He noticed it sends fans off to the toilet.

The 66-year-old, who has just released The Diving Board,  admitted his frustration at people's reluctance to accept new material.

Elton esxplained that when he attempts to play a new number in a big arena, it's "usually met by a mass exodus to the toilet."

"Of course, it's frustrating," he said. "You want people to like the new stuff as well as the old stuff."

But Elton also commented that with such a successful career behind him, he feels a liberation at not being pressured to create more hits.

"I'm not going to get played on the radio," he said. "I'm not a chart artist any more and that's fine. It gives me the chance to do what I want to do."
