“The Million Dollar Piano” show features beloved hits and album tracks from throughout the acclaimed singer/songwriter’s five-decade career. Elton has lots of tunes to pick from when putting together a setlist, thanks to his 38 gold albums and dozens of Top 40 singles.

Elton is joined on stage by drummer Nigel Olsson, who was part of the star’s original three-piece band, and musical director/guitarist Davey Johnstone, who first recorded with Elton in 1971 and joined the band the next year. His current band also features Matt Bissonette on bass, John Mahon on percussion, Kim Bullard on keyboards, and a special appearance by percussionist Ray Cooper.

After having celebrated New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day at The Colosseum, he returns to the venue Feb. 7. Previously announced residency gigs are booked Feb. 8, 10-11, 13-15, 17-20.

The new Sin City shows are scheduled April 25-26, 28-29 and May 1, 3-5.
