Elton John Starts His Three Year Run at Caesars Palace

Posted by at 2:11 pm on September 30, 2011

Singer Elton John opened his new Las Vegas act at Caesars Palace on Wednesday, tickling the ivories on his new “million dollar piano” nicknamed Blossom that lit up to reflect the mood of each song.

“The Million Dollar Piano” show marks the beginning John’s three-year residency at Caesar’s theater, The Colosseum, and Wednesday’s performance was the first of 16 shows scheduled through October. A second series begins in February.

Long-known for his flamboyant costumes, John walked onto a Roman-inspired golden stage in a glittering silver cape, removed to reveal a glimmering black coat and golden shoes before sitting down to play on a custom piano covered with more than 68 LED screens.

He played favorites including “Your Song,” “Rocket Man,” “Bennie and The Jets” and “Circle of Life” to a welcoming crowd that responded with standing ovations to nearly every song.
