Elton John interrupted his Russian gig Friday night to let his feelings be known about the country's anti-gay law.

BBC News report that during his set he told the audience that he was 'sad to learn' of the law banning 'propaganda of homosexuality', that it is 'inhumane and it is isolating'.

In September, the Tiny Dancer singer explained to The Guardian why he went ahead with the Russian gigs. He said, 'I’ve got to go. And I’ve got to think about what I’m going to say very carefully. As a gay man, I can’t leave those people on their own without going over there and supporting them. I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I’ve got to go.'

Elton's Moscow show was dedicated to Vladislav Tornovoi, a young man who was tortured and killed earlier this year for being homosexual.
