Elton John is trading in his Red Piano for a Million Dollar one. In announcing his return to The Colosseum this September, Elton says, “Caesars Palace is just a perfect, idyllic place to play, and the show will be a gargantuan feast of music and imagery.”

He continues, “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.’” Elton’s new three-year residency kicks off with a string of 16 shows beginning September 28.

A Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee in 1999, Elton is a rare entertainer who has conquered music, stage and screen. He has won five Grammy Awards, a Golden Globe and an Academy Award for the song, “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” in the film, The Lion King, and Tony Awards for the musicals The Lion King, Billy Elliot and Aida.
