If you can’t make it to the Colosseum in Caesars Palace to catch resident headliner Elton John’s “The Million Dollar Piano” performances this spring, you can still catch him at the movies: For two nights in March, the singer’s show will be screened in cinemas across the world.
The over-the-top theatrical concert will be shown in 500 movie theaters across the U.S. and 1,200 theaters around the world March 18, with an encore screening March 26.
The concert, presented by live-event broadcaster CinemaLive, will feature the same band, baroque stage elements and hit songs (not to mention the eponymous piano) of Sir Elton’s second Las Vegas residency, which debuted in 2011.
Tickets go on sale to the public Feb. 14. To purchase tickets and look up participating theaters, visit FathomEvents.com.
Transport yourself to the opulent and excessive Roman Empire at Caesars Palace. But the ever-changing Caesars Palace is far from ancient. The hotel and casino is constantly raising the bar for what visitors can expect in a Vegas resort experience.
Caesars Palace features 3,348 rooms and suites in five towers, including the new luxury boutique Nobu Hotel and Restaurant, which opened Feb. 4, 2013, in the totally remodeled Centurian Tower. Caesars features 129,000 square feet of gaming space, including the Strip’s largest poker room and a 250-seat sports book. Other amenities include about two dozen restaurants, a four-level shopping mall, four pools, a spa, Pure and Poetry nightclubs and Pussycat Dolls.
Dining options include restaurants from world-renown chefs Guy Savoy, Wolfgang Puck, Bobby Flay, Gordon Ramsay and, on Feb. 4, 2013, Nobu Matsuhisa.
You never know what characters you’ll run into at Caesars with regular performers like Jerry Seinfeld, Bette Midler, Elton John and maybe even the emperor himself.
