World-renowned singer, songwriter and performer Elton John gives fans exactly what they’re looking for in his Las Vegas show, “The Million Dollar Piano.” Playing exclusively at The Colosseum inside Caesars Palace, the show’s centerpiece is the namesake piano.

While the piano dominates the stage, the surrounding set design is also a beauty, so expect lots of gold and stunning visual effects. Elton John gets audiences on their feet with a set list of the iconic favorites. Beloved songs such as “Rocket Man,” “Benny and the Jets,” “Tiny Dancer” and “Crocodile Rock” make the night especially memorable.
