Elton John Announces 2016 Las Vegas Dates

Elton John gives fans the go-ahead to start planning a trip to Las Vegas next year by rolling out his initial 2016 “Million Dollar Piano” dates. So far, shows are set for January and April.

The Colosseum at Caesars Palace announced in fall 2014 that the world-renowned singer’s residency at the venue had been extended another three years. The “Million Dollar Piano” show, which began in 2011, takes its name from “an engineering marvel” of a piano created by Yamaha that boasts more than 68 LED video screens.
