“It’s unlike anything I have done before, a complete mix, a showcase of all my
music, accompanied by spectacular scenery and beautiful video images,” said
Elton John.

At the centerpiece of the performance is the show’s namesake “million dollar” 
piano, a one-of-a-kind engineering marvel featuring more than 68 LED video
screens. A collaboration between Elton and Yamaha Entertainment Group of
America, this state-of-the-art instrument is the perfect accompaniment to his
spectacular show, as it displays imagery to complement each of the show’s
iconic songs. For “The Million Dollar Piano,” Elton is accompanied by many
from his legendary band, including Davey Johnstone on guitar, the late Bob
Birch on bass, John Mahon on percussion, Nigel Olsson on drums and Kim Bullard
on keyboards, with a special appearance by percussionist Ray Cooper.

Elton is one of the top-selling solo artists of all time, with 35 gold and 25
platinum albums, 29 consecutive Top 40 hits, and he has sold more than 250
million records worldwide. Elton holds the record for the biggest selling
single of all time, “Candle in the Wind ’97,” which sold 37 million copies. He
also holds the record for most appearances on Billboard's Adult Contemporary
chart, with his newest single, "Home Again," marking his 69th entry. Since his
career began in 1969, he has played over 3,000 concerts worldwide. Elton has
recently been named the first recipient of the BRITs Icon Award, which
recognizes the very highest level of British music achievement, presented only
to iconic artists whose writing, recording and performances set them apart as
having made a lasting impact on the nation’s culture.

“Elton John fans will be dazzled once again by his spectacular ‘Million Dollar
Piano’ performance,” said Dan Diamond, senior vice president of Fathom Events.
“Experiencing this incredible show on the big screen is historic and truly
worthy of a music legend of Sir Elton John’s caliber.”

“The Million Dollar Piano”  is currently being performed to standing ovations
and continues to sell out during Elton’s residency  at Caesars Palace in Las
Vegas.  The reissue of “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” will be released on March
25 through Universal Music Group.
