Like many Brits, the Rocket Man singer was appalled by Thursday's (23Jun16) shock vote to exit the European Union, which led to Prime Minister David Cameron's resignation on Friday (24Jun16).

And he made his feelings known at his first show since the referendum, telling fans at Meadowbank Stadium the sunshine that shone over his gig during a gloomy weekend was for them.

"We haven’t seen blue skies anywhere else in Britain," he said. "That’s because you voted to stay in Europe. You’re the only f**king sensible people in Britain."

He subsequently summed up the political mood of roughly half of the U.K., who wanted to stay in the EU, by playing I Guess That's Why They Call It the Blues.

It was clear Sir Elton feared the worst on the eve of the Brexit vote, when he and his husband David Furnish hosted the third Woodside Gallery Dinner for the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

Kevin Spacey, Elizabeth Hurley, David Walliams, and designer Valentino were welcomed to the couple's home for the intimate dinner event, which included a video address from U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, and a surprise performance from Andrea Bocelli. The posh bash raised over £3.3 million (£2.4 million).

But guests claim the host and his partner were apprehensive about the Brexit vote the following day and feared the worst.

Sir Elton wasn't the only musician to express his dismay about the referendum - One Direction star Niall Horan and former bandmate Zayn Malik made their feelings known on Friday, as did Damon Albarn, James singer Tim Booth and Bastille at the Glastonbury festival.
