Elton John concert to be screened in Melksham

Melksham Assembly Hall is set to screen Elton John’s critically acclaimed ‘The Million Dollar Piano’ concert, recorded live at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, on Thursday 3rd April.

‘The Million Dollar Piano’ is currently being performed to standing ovations during Elton’s residency at Caesar’s Palace, and includes all of Elton’s greatest hits from throughout his career, including ‘Rocket Man’, ‘Tiny Dancer’, ‘Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting’, ‘I’m Still Standing’, ‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’, ‘Crocodile Rock’ and ‘Your Song’.

At the centrepiece of the performance is the show’s namesake piano, an engineering marvel featuring more than 68 LED video screens created by Yamaha. Nearly four years in the making, and weighing in at nearly 3,200 pounds, the state-of-the-art piano is the perfect accompaniment to Elton’s greatest hits.

Completing the incredible spectacle is the show’s impressive and elaborate baroque style stage set, masterminded by the show’s design team, who also designed the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Elton said, “I’ve had the best time (in Las Vegas) because I always thought of it as a challenge and wanted to put on the best show. If you put on a great show and a spectacle, and it’s fun and people feel as if they are getting value for money, then it’s a no-brainer. I don’t think there could be a better-looking show than this in Vegas or in any venue anywhere.”

Tickets to see this fantastic concert are priced at £10 each and are available from Melksham Assembly Hall (01225 704187) or the tourist information centre (01225 707424).
