Elton's curtain shocker
09:30 06 September 2005
Sir Elton John was reportedly left fuming after his luxurious silk curtains were snatched from his dressing room.
The pop legend was performing in Mijas on the Costa del Sol - and had insisted his room backstage was kitted out in style, according to a report in Britain's Daily Star newspaper.
Show organisers splashed out to get the room ready for the 'Rocket Man' singer, but thieves sneaked in during the show and stole the drapes.
Earlier this year, it was revealed Sir Elton performed for a group of students who had broken into his home thirty years ago - and they only paid him with a crate of beer.
The singer was reminded of the event at a charity concert he performed at Watford Football Club - the soccer team he once chaired.
The students had raided the singer's nearby home after a band failed to turn up to their graduation ball.
A source revealed: "The lads had to show him how they had got through security, and provide him with a crate of brown ale as payment."
