Elton was wearing a very cool hat. When he started in on "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road," a guy snuck up on stage and ran to him, grabbing at the hat. Elton and the guy wrestled for it for a couple seconds, until three or four security men pulled the guy away. Elton sat on the piano bench for a few moments and then said, "We'll skip this song. That's your punishment." But by the end of the set, he was feeling visibly better, and said "Thank you, Portland."
I went with some high school friends, including Joe Breuner.
