“Caesars Palace is just a perfect, idyllic place to play, and the show will be a gargantuan feast of music and imagery,” said Elton. “I’m going to have a fabulous piano that Yamaha has been working on for four years, and that’s the reason why the show is called ‘The Million Dollar Piano.’"
John completed a highly successful five-year residency at Caesars Palace in April of 2009 with the critically acclaimed “The Red Piano.” Originally booked for 75 shows over the course of a three-year run, audience demand for “The Red Piano” was so overwhelming the engagement was extended for a total of 241 shows over a five-year period.
“We couldn’t be more excited to once again welcome one of the world’s most beloved entertainers, Elton John, to The Colosseum,” said Gary Selesner, Caesars Palace president. “During his last residency, Elton and his talented band brought so many memorable performances to Caesars Palace. We are looking forward to more incredible moments with Elton on-stage at The Colosseum and continuing our successful partnership.”
John will be accompanied by his band, which includes Davey Johnstone on guitar, Bob Birch on bass, John Mahon on percussion, Nigel Olsson on drums and Kim Bullard on keyboards with a special appearance by percussionist Ray Cooper.
