Elton John’s longtime residency inside the Colosseum at Caesars Palace will cease next year. The 70-year-old singer announced his Sin City performances will officially come to a close on May 19, 2018. John ends his run with more than 200 Las Vegas shows in his rear-view mirror.
The British legend has been performing “The Million Dollar Piano” show since the year 2011. The shows have been fan favorites since John came to the strip; often featuring dozens of big screens atop his world-famous piano. Health concerns have become an issue for John as of late. The singer cancelled several Vegas dates earlier this year after contracting a bacterial infection after a trip to South America.
The Million Dollar Piano show was not John’s first residency in Las Vegas – he had previously performed “The Red Piano” show from 2004 to 2009. His two tours in Vegas have helped John maintain his status as one of the top-grossing musicians in the world. John is just one of the many popular acts that call Las Vegas home. Britney Spears has been featured on the strip since 2013 and Jennifer Lopez recently signed on to continue her residency in Sin City through next year.
John rose to fame in the late-1960’s and his success peaked in the mid-1970’s with classic albums like Goodbye Yellow Brick Road and Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy. His studio work has really never taken a break – he has released 31 albums over the course of his career. John is also credited with one of the greatest soundtracks in movie history with his contributions to 1994’s The Lion King. He has taken home five Grammy Awards for his remarkable work, but his influence stretches far beyond the stage. The singer came out as openly gay in 1988 and has since donated his time and money to AIDS research. As his Vegas residency comes to an end, John intends to focus on Broadway productions.
