I am not a big Elton John fan but, I was blown away from this two hour show. He sang all of the songs I could think of and interacted with the audiance throughout. I had a great time and will see him in concert again. A great show for all ages.

Sir Elton still has it! This man can still sing and perform like he did in his younger years. And that million dollar piano was stunning and a big part of his show. The show is so good I've seen it 3 times this year alone.

I am not the biggest Elton John fan around but I do enjoy his music. Out of the 90 minutes there was only one song I didn't recognize and he put on a very good show. What an amazing group of musicians he surrounds himself with as well

The theater at Caesars is beautiful and the stage props are elegant and classy. The actual million dollar piano is covered in custom fit LCD screens so that images can be projected to match the background videos. Kind of cool but worth a million dollars? Debatable. The background videos were kind of hokey, reminding me of some of the animation from the 60 ‘s. More than one video was reused from the red piano tour. I know because the words “red piano’ were drawn into some of the images. I did not see any of the porn or disturbing images others have mentioned. Instead, there was a lot of grainy photos and videos from Elton’s early days in the music industry. His band is phenomenal. The “two cellos” group that accompanies him are amazing. And Sir Elton still has his voice. He put on a good show but sang many of his classics with an almost mechanical enthusiasm. Like he was going through the motions of having a good time without actually enjoying himself. At least he was nice enough to fake it. The audience seemed to enjoy the show, dancing and screaming “I love you Elton”. He did not respond, just continued along the show’s script. He did one scheduled encore, performing “can you feel the love tonight”. To many people’s disappointment he did not sing “candle in the wind”. Overall it was a good show. I enjoyed myself even though I am not a big Elton fan. Would I do it again? Probably not. And definitely not for the $250 a seat we paid.

We attended the final performance of this last series of concerts at the Coliseum at the end of October. First time there, it’s a wonderful venue that lived up to its reputation. We sat in the first row centre in Mezz1 and these were great seats ($140). Looking around, there really is not a bad seat in the house. That said, there’s no doubt sitting in the front floor section would have given a better view. If you can afford the $100+ extra per seat, that is. We were satisfied. But I believe Mezz2 prices were about $50 less than Mezz1 and they were probably almost as good. Keep in mind also Elton is set up on the left side of the stage so seats to the right have a better view. Check the pix I posted.

I had read the reviews here and so I was pretty confident it would be a great show. First time seeing Elton John and it was a treat. His voice was very strong (although he doesn’t even try to hit the high notes anymore, understandable), and he put in a great effort despite a sometimes lethargic audience. Don’t know if this was because it was Sunday night or because everyone was over 50. Not Elton’s fault though, as he really made an effort to get the crowd into it and did succeed a few times. This was to his credit. Two solid hours of hits.

The stage was beautiful, changing occasionally and seamlessly to a completely different palette. We appreciated the stories between songs, some of which we were not aware of. It must be a bit tiresome to be repeating the same stories night after night, but he seemed genuine in enjoying telling them.

The band was tight and enjoyable on its own, especially the dramatic performance of the percussionist which was a show in itself.

We are not huge fans, but we loved it.
