The Million Dollar Piano, Elton John – A Concert Movie Extravaganza

Elton John has had a very successful long term residence in Las Vegas. For the past three years his show at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace has been “The Million Dollar Piano“. It has grossed $42 Million Dollars in the Six Legs it has run to date! At the centerpiece of the performance is the show’s namesake piano, an engineering marvel featuring more than 68 LED video screens created by Yamaha.

If I had plans to go to Las Vegas and Elton John was performing “The Million Dollar Piano” I would make that event my priority. We just saw Elton John this past November in Bridgeport and it was a phenomenal show. It was clear throughout the evening how much the 10 year Vegas residency has aided Elton John’s live stage act.

Well if you can’t get to Las Vegas here is the next best thing. Elton John is releasing a film of the Las Vegas show, The Million Dollar Piano, which will play at 500 movie theaters in America and 1,200 in over 40 other countries. The concert will screen on March 18th, with an encore showing on March 26th.

Tickets go on sale on Valentines Day, Friday 2/14/14, more info here.
