Twice last month when Sir Elton John performed here in Las Vegas for Andre Agassi and Justin Timberlake at separate charity events on The Strip, I reported rumors from highly reliable sources that talks were underway for the British superstar entertainer to return to Caesars Palace.
Now I can confirm that he’ll be back at The Colosseum next year, two years after his residency ended there. Elton will resume his shows after Celine Dion’s initial run of 70 performances a year for two years that premieres March 15. The legendary singer, pianist and showman returns to his theater home where he had alternated in a residency with Celine, Cher and Bette Midler beginning Feb. 13, 2004.
I was reliably told over the weekend that the 63-year-old award-winning singer-songwriter will be back for a regular run of shows. “You’re going to see him here again at Caesars next year for sure,” a top executive confirmed to me.
