Elton earns 500,000 $ every show. The 70-year-old Rocket Man next spring will wrap up his residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
The singer shares The Colosseum stage with Celine Dion, who also has an ongoing residency at the intimate venue, while fellow Sin City regulars include Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, the Backstreet Boys, and Lionel Richie.
He told the newspaper, ‘I couldn’t believe it,’ adding ‘This is a town that has been so kind to me.
‘I’ve been appearing here throughout my career … and it has a big place in my heart.’ Gary Selesner, President of Caesars Palace, shares in a statement. “We are incredibly grateful to Elton for allowing Caesars Palace to be the home for his 450 memorable performances.”
Recently the singer expected to make “full and complete recovery” after “harmful and unusual bacterial infection”
A “harmful and unusual bacterial infection” has forced Elton John to cancel his upcoming April and May run of “The Million Dollar Piano” gigs at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, as well as his May 6th show in Bakersfield, California.
The singer contracted the illness on a recent tour of South America and became violently ill on a flight home from Santiago, Chile. He spent two nights in intensive care at a U.K. hospital, where he received treatment to remove the infection and was released on April 22nd.
“Thankfully, Elton’s medical team identified this quickly and treated it successfully,” the singer’s rep wrote in a statement. “He is expected to make a full and complete recovery.”
