On June 30, Australia's Shock Entertainment is to release The Million Dollar Piano on DVD and Blu-ray.
This was filmed in high definition and is packed with musical gems ranging from Philadelphia Freedom to Circle of Life.
The Million Dollar Piano was filmed at Elton’s residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The show has been running since September 2011, with the most recent leg being 16 engagements between March 29 and April 26 of this year. The concerts are the culmination of Elton’s decades long partnership with Yamaha pianos. The film features Elton performing solo, with his band and with percussionist Ray Cooper. The multimedia staging is phenomenal with vast screens behind the stage illustrating the songs and the piano itself acting as a screen for graphics and animations.
As well as the full 19 songs from the residency set, there's a bonus feature The Making Of The Million Dollar Piano.
