Rod Stewart – Las Vegas NV : August 15 2015

What a great show tonight with Rod Stewart at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Toni and I had seen Rod Stewart before, so we looking forward to another great performance and stage show and we weren’t disappointed at all. He had a full band including all the ladies playing the horns and strings. The setlist was incredible including early songs such as I’m Losing You and Maggie May. I think one of my favorites of the night was Your in My Heart.

Rod did all of his regular show antics with kicking soccer balls into the crowd, walking through the crowd while singing and ending with a huge balloon drop during the final song Do You Think I’m Sexy.

Fun night in Vegas!

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.
