Elton John to perform

LAS VEGAS -- Singer and songwriter Elton John signed an agreement with Park Place Entertainment to perform a series of 75 shows over three years at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

The first of the shows is scheduled for Feb. 13 through 22.

Titled "The Red Piano," the engagements will blend the performer's music with visual imagery to create an experience billed by Park Place officials as "unlike any previous Elton John performance."

The shows will not alter the schedule for "A New Day," which stars Celine Dion and also is performed in the 4,100-seat Colosseum.

Tickets for "The Red Piano" are priced at $250, $175 and $100 each, plus applicable taxes and handling charges, and can be purchased at (888) 435-8665, www.ticketmaster.com or in person at the Caesars Palace box office.
