Elton John To Wrap Up Vegas Residency In May

Elton John fans take note! Tickets go on sale Oct. 22 for the final block of performances of The Million Dollar Piano at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

The 70-year-old music icon’s last shows at the venue will run from April 28 to May 19.

John will have performed the show than 200 times. His previous residency in Vegas, The Red Piano, ran from 2004 to 2009.

Returning to the Colosseum last week for a string of shows until early November, John spoke about the mass shooting just down the Strip.

“I couldn’t believe it. This is a town that has been so kind to me. I’ve been appearing here throughout my career but a lot since 2005 and it has a big place in my heart,” he said, according to the Las Vegas Sun.

“Every time something happens like that, a killing like that, it stays in our hearts as musicians because we can’t do anything except play music to try and heal the wounds.

“But it does have a profound effect on us, and I just feel for this town.”
