The group’s Harry Styles was amongst the crowd and John began a shout out to him from the stage: “Thanks to the fabulous Harry Styles…” when the crowd began booing.
John quickly responded with: “I love One Direction, **** off”.
The booing didn’t seem to upset Styles who later tweeted: “@eltonjohndotcom is a living legend.”
From what we’re hearing, Benedict Cumberbatch and Stephen Fry were also amongst the crowd at John’s 90-minute concert where he played classics such as Rocket Man, Saturday and I’m Still Standing at the London concert.
