Elton John In Las Vegas
Elton John returns to Las Vegas to perform at Caesars Palace with a brand-new show. He plans on beginning a three year performance at the Colosseum theater called The Million Dollar Piano. Elton’s previous show the Red Piano was a huge hit spanning over five-years and 241 shows. For his newest performance he’s starting with the very limited amount of performance engagements.
Elton will be accompanied by his band with special appearances by percussionist Ray Cooper. Currently the members of the band are Davey Johnstone on guitar, John Mahon on percussion, Kim Bullard on keyboards Bob Birch playing bass, and Nigel Olsson on drums.
When asked about the show Elton John said, “Caesars Palace is just a perfect, idyllic place to play, and the show will be a gargantuan feast of music and imagery.” The show is called the million Dollar piano because Elton will be playing on his famous Yamaha piano he has been using for the past four years.
We’re not sure which songs will appear in the new show. However I think it’s safe to say you’ll hear some of his favorites and most popular hits such as, Bennie and the Jets, Tiny Dancer, Candle in the Wind, Your Song, rocket Man, Crocodile Rock, Island girl, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, and Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me.
Elton John is a multiple Grammy award-winning legend and one of the most successful singer songwriters of all time. He’s been performing music ever since 1961 when his first band was formed which was called Bluesology. Recently in 2010, Elton toured with Ray Cooper, Billy Joel, and his band. In 2010 he also produced the Broadway musical, Next Fall and came out with a new studio album titled, The Union.
