LAS VEGAS, NV (CelebrityAccess) – Elton John took his final bow at Caesar’s Palace last night (May 17) to a sold-out crowd of 4,298 fans, as the icon’s second blockbuster Las Vegas residency “The Million Dollar Piano” came to a close.
It has been reported that Elton took his final curtain call to a standing ovation as confetti and balloons inscribed with “450” rained down on the stage and the crowd.
Since February 2004, Elton and his band have performed 450 shows at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace to over 1.8 million fans from across the world. The first five-year residency “The Red Piano” played 243 shows to approximately one million people through April 2009 followed by a triumphant return on Sept. 28, 2011, with an all-new, second residency, “The Million Dollar Piano” which played 207 shows across seven years. Both productions achieved record ticket sales and worldwide acclaim by fans and critics.
The Las Vegas curtain closes as Elton prepares to launch his highly-anticipated, last ever worldwide tour, “Farewell Yellow Brick Road,” that kicks-off in the U.S. on Sept. 8, 2018.
