Elton Returns to Vegas with "The Million Dollar Piano"
(LAS VEGAS) -- Celine Dion came back to Las Vegas, and now Elton John is doing the same thing. Sir Elton will return to the Colosseum at Caesars Palace with a brand-new show on September 28. It's called The Million Dollar Piano, and it'll play for three years. Sixteen shows have been scheduled so far, and tickets go on sale April 25.
In a statement, John said, "Caesars Palace is just a perfect, idyllic place to play, and the show will be a gargantuan feast of music and imagery. 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's previous five-year residency at Caesars Palace, which wrapped up in April of 2009, was a huge financial and critical success. It's not surprising that John wants to do another one -- now that he's a father, staying in one place would offer him a more stable environment than touring the world.
