Fab news!
Elton John is returning to Las Vegas for an all new show called The Million Dollar Piano!
As of right now, only 16 shows have been announced but this marks just the beginning of a three year residency. If the demand is anything like his last show, The Red Piano (which went from a 75 show, three year run, to a 241 show, five year run), you can guarantee that there will be many more performances!
Here's what the performer had to say:
Caesars Palace is just a perfect, idyllic place to play, and the show will be a gargantuan feast of music and imagery,” said Elton. “I’m going to have a fabulous piano that Yamaha has been working on for four years, and that’s the reason why the show is called ‘The Million Dollar Piano.’”

Elton completed a highly successful five-year residency at Caesars Palace in April of 2009 with the critically acclaimed “The Red Piano.” Originally booked for 75 shows over the course of a three-year run, audience demand for “The Red Piano” was so overwhelming the engagement was extended for a total of 241 shows over a five-year period.
“We couldn’t be more excited to once again welcome one of the world’s most beloved entertainers, Elton John, to The Colosseum,” said Gary Selesner, Caesars Palace president. “During his last residency, Elton and his talented band brought so many memorable performances to Caesars Palace. We are looking forward to more incredible moments with Elton on-stage at The Colosseum and continuing our successful partnership.”
Elton will be accompanied by his band, which includes Davey Johnstone on guitar, Bob Birch on bass, John Mahon on percussion, Nigel Olsson on drums and Kim Bullard on keyboards with a special appearance by percussionist Ray Cooper.
One of the most successful live acts on the road today, Elton and his band put on an unforgettable show: the entire audience standing, dancing and singing along with much-loved classic songs.
The monumental career of international singer, songwriter and performer Elton John has spanned more than five decades. He is one of the top-selling solo artists of all time, with 35 gold and 25 platinum albums, 29 consecutive Top 40 hits and has sold more than 250-million records worldwide. Elton holds the record for the biggest selling single of all time, “Candle in the Wind,” which sold 37-million copies. Since his career began in 1969, he has played almost 3,000 concerts worldwide. The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences has awarded Elton five Grammys, the Grammy Legend Award and honored him with the Music Cares Person of the Year Award. Elton was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1999.
Elton’s new album with Leon Russell, The Union, produced by T Bone Burnett, was released last fall. In April 2011, the Tribeca Film Festival will open with the world premiere of Cameron Crowe’s documentary, The Union, which captures the writing and recording of the John and Russell album.
The smash-hit stage production of Billy Elliot, for which Elton composed the music, originally opened in London and garnered Elton a top-five hit in the UK with the song “Electricity.” Billy Elliot was nominated for a record nine Olivier Awards, winning Best Musical among others. Billy Elliot opened on Broadway November 13, 2008 to critical acclaim. It was nominated for a record-tying 15 Tony Awards and won 10 including Best Musical. In March of this year, Billy Elliot opened in Toronto to rave reviews.
Elton received an Academy Award for The Lion King and Tony awards for both The Lion King and Aida. He served as the executive producer for the hugely successful animated feature Gnomeo & Juliet, which opened in February 2011.
In 1998, the Queen of England knighted him Sir Elton John, CBE. In 2004, Elton received the Kennedy Center Honor for his lifetime contributions to American culture and excellence through the performing arts.

Sir George Martin BBC Documentary to be aired over Easter

LONDON, UK – A BBC Arena documentary on the life of Sir George Martin, Britain’s most celebrated music producer, is due to air on Monday April 25th on BBC 2 at 9:00 p.m. (UK time).
Best known for his work with The Beatles, the 90-minute documentary is an intimate portrait of Sir George’s life and was partly filmed in Montserrat.  In January 2011, a two-man BBC crew visited the island with Sir George and his wife to finalise work on the documentary. 
The Martins have been associated with Montserrat for more than 30 years and the crew said they could not tell the story of his life without featuring the island.  The documentary features several locations on the island including Olveston House, Sir George Martin’s residence, which was first built to house band members for stars like Elton John who were recording at Martin’s Air Studios in the 80s.

AIDS foundation funding promotes treatment in South
Last week as the U.S. House of Representatives endorsed plans for deep cuts in funding to health care and domestic programs, officials and advocates in Augusta said there is an even greater need for grassroots groups and public health to work together.

Kristine Evans, of Mercy Ministries, leads a tour of the old Castleberry's building as part of last week's training session. The nonprofit Augusta ministry bought the property for $1 in July. Part of the building will be used for AIDS outreach.
"You have to work with what you have," said Lisa Frederick, the associate director of the HIV Health Literacy Program for AIDS Community Research Initiative of America.
The group partnered with Georgia Health Sciences University to sponsor a two-day training session for health literacy, bringing together various organizations from the community. Using a grant from the Elton John AIDS Foundation, the group has specifically targeted the South, and Augusta in particular, to help foster collaborations, Frederick said.
"We can bring service providers together and they are in a comfortable space and they can kind of brainstorm and talk to each other," she said, and work on potential solutions, particularly in light of cuts at all levels.
"We know that funding is a huge issue but we can mobilize the community as much as we can" to think innovatively, Frederick said. "We have to think a little differently right now because services still need to be provided. How do you provide them? What is the alternative?"
A lack of services in one state is likely to affect another. About 26 percent of the HIV patients treated at Medical College of Georgia Hospital and Clinics are from South Carolina, said Dr. J. Peter Rissing, the chief of infectious diseases and principal investigator for the Ryan White Programs at GHSU.
And that number might grow, said Vivian Armstead, the testing project coordinator for the S.C. HIV/AIDS Council.
"As they can't access services in South Carolina, it's going to overflow across that ditch," she said, referring to the Savannah River. "There's only a bridge separating us. So our waiting list is going to impact Georgia's waiting list, and run up the costs here in Georgia because they can't get services and needs met in South Carolina."
The waiting list refers to those waiting for help from the AIDS Drug Assistance Program. There are 597 waiting in South Carolina and 1,328 waiting in Georgia, about a quarter of the 7,900 on ADAP waiting lists nationwide.
Still, there is hope that an ambitious national HIV/AIDS strategy will meet its first set of goals in 2015, even in the South, said Christian F. Castro, the director for the Latinos in the Deep South Program of the Latino Commission on AIDS.
"We want to make sure that all of the regions, including the Deep South, are aware of what they're working with going forward so we can begin to really do the work, roll up our sleeves and get the work done," he said.

Elton John and his partner David Furnish have joined a handful of European royals – and Kate Middleton's mailman – on the exclusive list of invitees to the royal wedding.

Despite John's earlier insistence that he wouldn't snag a spot at the April 29 ceremony, "We do have an invitation," the singer tells Canada's CTV. "I’ve been trying to be discreet."

He also shares thoughts on the bride-to-be, noting that Kate "is Diana in personality. She is very discreet, she is a very beautiful girl. They have been together a long time and I think she has handled the pressure so much."

Elton John And Sting Tickled Pink For Charity

April 18, 2011 by Tim Saunders
Elton John and Sting were among the performers at a very special event in New York City that raised over $4 million for breast cancer research during the weekend.
Held at the Waldorf Astoria and benefiting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, the Tickled Pink event attracted guests such as emcee Elizabeth Hurley, Carolyn Murphy and current Miss USA Rima Fakih.
The annual event is a successful fundraising platform for the organization.
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation was founded in 1993 by Evelyn H. Lauder as an independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to funding innovative clinical and translational research. In October 2009, BCRF awarded nearly $28.5 million to 173 scientists across the United States, Canada, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, and Australia.
