Elton's concert on Saturday October 8 at The Colosseum, Caesars Palace, Las Vegas will be extremely special for several reasons. Not only is this concert one of the first in The Million Dollar Piano opening season, not only does 2011 mark 40 years since Elton's debut concert in Las Vegas, but on October 8 Elton will play his 3000th public concert!
It has been an extraordinary and unique voyage from the first ever public concert played by Elton John. This took place on Elton's 24th birthday, March 25, 1970, at the Revolution Club, London, England. Elton was joined onstage by Nigel Olsson on drums and Dee Murray on bass - the original Elton John Band. They were promoting the Elton John album, which had just been released on the DJM label.
