Elton John is a hit machine
From “Crocodile Rock” to “Your Song,” “Rocket Man” to “I’m Still Standing,” you know every song you’re going to hear at Elton John’s beloved The Million Dollar Piano show at the Colosseum. And yet it is just as certain you will still find moments of nostalgic rediscovery during the hit-packed spectacular, thanks to the British pop legend’s endless catalog and the exuberant talent of his band.
The last time he was on the Strip, John took a moment to explain the unorthodox relationship that has yielded “Bennie and the Jets,” “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me,” “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” and so many other classics. “We’ve been together 50 years and it’s quite amazing,” he said of songwriting partner Bernie Taupin. “We’ve never had an argument. He gives me a lyric and from the word go, I’ve gone always gone into another room and written the melody. We’ve never been in the same room when we’ve written a song, which is probably why we’ve lasted 50 years.”
