Elton John smacked in the face with beads on stage

Not the chops!

Elton John was left stunned when a fan flung Mardi Gras beads into his face while he was performing in Las Vegas last week.

The heavy beads whacked the singer fair in the mouth during his ditty "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting" at his Caesars Palace gig.

Footage shows a shocked Elton grabbing at his face when a fan he had invited on stage for a boogie, threw beads at his head.

A grumpy Elton needed half a minute to calm down before finishing his song.

Not impressed.
