Elton John's "The Million Dollar Piano" to Play U.S. Theaters on March 18 & 26

A film of Elton John's Las Vegas show, The Million Dollar Piano, will play in movie theaters across the U.S. on Tuesday, March 18 and Wednesday, March 26.

Recorded at the iconic Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, the legendary Sir Elton John performs his entire, critically-acclaimed concert, including a playlist of his greatest hits including Rocket Man, Tiny Dancer, Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting, I’m Still Standing, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Philadelphia Freedom and Your Song. Fans will also be treated to an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the making of Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year.

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.

John said of the show "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."

The Million Dollar Piano is presented by Fathom Events, CinemaLive and Rocket Music Entertainment Group. Go to Fathom Events for a list of participating theaters.
