Elton John has announced the end of The Million Dollar Piano, his second critically-acclaimed Las Vegas residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

“For over a decade, Elton John and his band have graced the stage at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, performing all the hits that have defined a generation. Elton John’s residency at The Colosseum has set the standard for those all that have followed,” says Gary Selesner, President of Caesars Palace. “We are incredibly grateful to Elton for allowing Caesars Palace to be the home for his 450 memorable performances.”
