ABC/Randy HolmesIf Elton John hadn’t already announced that he was retiring from touring, an incident at his show in Las Vegas this week might have led him to make that decision.

During his shows at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, when Elton performs “Saturday Night’s Alright (For Fighting),” he invites people from the audience to dance with him onstage. But in fan-recorded video posted by TMZ, Elton can be seen singing the song onstage on Wednesday night as a set of Mardi Gras beads comes flying out of nowhere and smacks him in the mouth.

As the band continued to play, a shocked and startled Elton looked confused, upset and furious — as much as he could look confused, upset and angry while wearing large sunglasses — and appeared to utter an expletive. He then wiped his mouth with a tissue several times to make sure he wasn’t bleeding.

Then, ever the trouper, he continued the song.
