Eagle Rock Entertainment has announced that it will release on Blu-ray Elton John: The Million Dollar Piano. This will be available for purchase online and in stores across the U.S. on July 1.
The Million Dollar Piano was filmed over multiple nights in 2013 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 spanning 16 shows between March 29 and April 26, 2014. The concerts are the culmination of Elton's decades long partnership with Yamaha pianos. This film features classic tracks from across the star's 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.
As well as 19 songs from the residency set, the DVD includes as a bonus The Making Of The Million Dollar Piano, which tells the story behind the concerts.
In addition, there are four extra tracks filmed in Kiev in 2012: Candle In The Wind; Sacrifice; Sad Songs (Say So Much) and Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me.
