The Who Expected to Sign Two Year Deal to Take Over Elton John's Spot at Ceasars

by VVN Music

There are multiple reports that Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey are about to sign a two year contract to play at The Colisseum at Caesars Palace, replacing the departing Elton John.

Elton has been playing at the Colisseum since February of 2004 and will finish his run on May 19, 2018.

An insider told Britain's Mirror that AEG and Caesars are hoping to get the Who on stage by July and consider them a worthy replacement for Elton John for a long term residency. The band had played there last summer for a short, very successful stint. "Their shows this summer were a critical success and a sell out, with Roger’s voice sounding better than ever. They enjoyed the gigs and unique opportunity of a residency and were open to repeating it for a longer run. The talks have been going well and there is a genuine hope that a deal will be done. The issues are simply the volume of shows and total length of the run."

Reports say the deal could be worth from $15.75 million to $46 million (£12million to £35million) depending on the number of shows.  They are expected to make around $325,000 per show.
