World-renowned singer, songwriter and performer Elton John made a triumphant return to The Colosseum at Caesars Palace with his all new show, “The Million Dollar Piano” in Sept. 2011. 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.
Elton is accompanied by his band, which includes Davey Johnstone on guitar, Matt Bissonette on bass, John Mahon on percussion, Nigel Olsson on drums and Kim Bullard on keyboards, with a special appearance by percussionist Ray Cooper.

The five-time Grammy® and Grammy Legend award winner has been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and has received both Academy and Tony Awards for his contributions in The Lion King and Aida. Additionally, Elton composed the music for the smash-hit stage production of Billy Elliot, which was nominated for a record-tying 15 Tony Awards and won 10, including Best Musical.
