WATCH: Elton John fell out of a chair at a tennis match

Monday December 8th, 2014

Sir Elton John attended the Statoil Masters at Royal Albert Hall in London, England, over the weekend. And as a guest of his star power, he naturally commanded one of the best seats in the house.

He was sitting courtside in a slick, all-black track suit, but his smooth style couldn't save him from taking a backwards tumble out of his chair.

His fall took those around him by surprise, and he pulled some chairs down with him. But he is Elton John -- so the entire process looks spectacular.

Naturally, the video made its way to the Internet. 

Next time Sir Elton John goes to have a seat, whether at a tennis match, behind his piano, or really in any venue, let's hope he finds a sturdier chair awaiting him.
