Outrageous Tour Pranks

Elton John Monkeys with Iggy Pop

When Elton John ran onstage during an Iggy Pop concert dressed in a lifelike gorilla suit, he got chuckles from just about everyone – the main exception being Iggy Pop himself. The Stooges singer, who had been battling mental health issues at the time, believed he was being attacked by an actual gorilla and fled the stage to hide behind his drummer. "I was unusually stoned that evening to the point of barely being ambulatory so it scared the hell out of me,” Pop later wrote in his autobiography. "I really didn't know what was going on. For all I knew it was a crazed biker on methedrine in that gorilla suit." (Photos: Jeff Fusco / Mark Metcalfe, Getty Images)
