Elton John’s The Million Dollar Piano to premiere at Caesars Palace


MUMBAI: World-renowned singer, songwriter and performer, Elton John will return to The Colosseum at Caesars Palace with an all new show, The Million Dollar Piano, beginning 28 September for 16 shows.

Elton’s September return will mark the beginning of a three-year residency at The Colosseum and his second as a Caesars Palace headliner.

Tickets for the first sixteen performances of "The Million Dollar Piano" go on-sale on 25 April. Prices range from $55 to $250. Limited VIP tickets are available through the Caesars Palace Box Office.

"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,," said Elton John.

Elton completed a five-year residency at Caesars Palace in April 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. 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," said Caesars Palace president Gary Selesner.

Elton 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.
