Elton may be prohibited from next tennis Grand Slam

Thursday 22 January 2004 @ 3:23 - GMT

Elton might not be able to participate the next time Andre Agassi holds his Grand Slam for Children benefit, eltonjohnworld has unearthed.

According to the October 22, 2003 edition of Las Vegas Review, his Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, deal this spring prohibits him from performing at other casinos or casino-hosted events in North America, as well as any other venue in Clark County.

Since Agassi always has his benefit in the now-prohibited county and/or at MGM Grand (casino-affiliated), that's why it might be a no-no for Elton.

On the bright side, his Vegas shows should offer songs not normally heard in concert - even Empty Garden, which Elton normally finds ''very upsetting'' to do. Empty Garden is a tribute to slain John Lennon.

See the piano key Elton On Tour for more details about Elton's Caesar's Palace gigs, also know as the Red Piano shows.
