World-renowned singer, songwriter and performer, the legendary Elton John performs his spectacular and critically acclaimed The Million Dollar Piano concert from The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
The Million Dollar Piano is currently being performed to standing ovations during Elton’s residency at Caesar’s Palace and includes all of Elton’s greatest hits from throughout his career including Rocket Man, Tiny Dancer, Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting, I’m Still Standing, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Crocodile Rock and Your Song.
At the centrepiece of the performance is the show’s namesake piano, an engineering marvel featuring more than 68 LED video screens created by Yamaha. Nearly four years in the making, the state-of-the-art piano is the perfect accompaniment to Elton’s greatest hits displaying imagery to complement the entertainer’s fan favourites. Creating a whimsical, one-of-a-kind entertainment experience, the piano weighs in at nearly 3,200 pounds.
Completing the incredible spectacle is the show’s impressive and elaborate baroque style stage set, masterminded by the show’s design team, Mark Fisher and Patrick Woodroffe. Fisher (best known for his design of Pink Floyd’s The Wall and his work designing the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2008 Beijing Olympics) and Woodroffe conceived and designed the impressive lights display that perfectly augments the set and piano.
‘I’ve had the best time (in Las Vegas) because I always thought of it as a challenge and wanted to put on the best show’, says Elton. ‘If you put on a great show and a spectacle, and it’s fun and people feel as if they are getting value for money, then it’s a no-brainer.
‘I don’t think there could be a better-looking show than this in Vegas or in any venue anywhere.’
