Elton John – Las Vegas : March 21 2015

 

Finally getting around to posting on the show last weekend in Vegas. This was an absolutely wonderful performance and show by Elton John and his band. This was his “Million Dollar Piano” show which he has been performing for a while now at the Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace. When we got into the venue, we were just in awe with the opulence and the size of the set. There were huge golden structures on either side of the stage that soared about 30+ feet above the percussion riser and on either side of these structures were beautiful red velvet floor to ceiling curtains, held back by rocket shaped tie backs. Our seats were pretty good just a few rows from the stage, with the only problem being that our view was straight on to Elton playing his piano, which normally you would think this would be a good thing, but we were only really able to see his head above the top of the piano…still a great view.

He came on just after 7:30pm and played for a little more than 2 hours. Some of our favorite songs of the night were; “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road”, “Crocodile Rock”, “Mona Lisa”, “Levon” and “Empty Garden” which was a great memorial to John Lennon. After the show, with all of the lighting and projections we knew why they called it the “Million Dollar Piano”, simply amazing show.

It was a quick trip down for the show, and we wished we could have stayed another day to see the performance again, but alas…we both had our day jobs and reality to get back to.
