The legendary British musician will hit the stage on Blu-ray in July.
In an early announcement to retailers, Eagle Rock is preparing 'Elton John: The Million Dollar Piano' for Blu-ray on July 1.
'The Million Dollar Piano' was filmed over multiple nights in 2013 at Elton John's residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The show has been running since September 2011, with the most recent leg spanning 16 shows between March 29 and April 26 2014. The concerts are the culmination of Elton John's decades long partnership with Yamaha pianos. This film features classic Elton John tracks from across his extraordinary career performed either with his band, solo, or 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.
