Editorial Reviews

Elton John's 'The Million Dollar Piano' is a residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The show has been running since September 2011, with the most recent leg being 16 shows between March 29th and April 26th of 2014. The concerts are the culmination of Elton Johns decades-long partnership with Yamaha pianos. This film features classic Elton John tracks from across his extraordinary career performed either with his band, with percussionist Ray Cooper, or solo. The multimedia staging is extraordinary with vast screens behind the stage illustrating the songs, and the piano itself acting as a screen for graphics and animations. Elton John is the ultimate live showman and this is the definitive Elton John concert experience.

I saw this on its limited run on the big screen. I sat close and really got into it. Actually lapsed into thinking I was at a real concert. Began singing and clapping along. Probably lucky that I didn't get tossed out. Elton really still has it, Even though he Doesn't quite hit the high notes like he used to, but all the songs sounded great. The piano does some awesome stuff, you really have to look closely because it doesn't seem possible. I can not leave out the excellent ensemble of musicians and backup singers.

I saw this as a tv special & just had to order it on Blu Ray. This disc will have you dancing in your living room…you'll be 25 again, I promise you. I had the thrill of seeing Elton's Red Piano show in Las Vegas several years ago, but this show outdid even being there in person. Sure, there are loads of special effects, but they just add to the energy and excitement of watching the performance. They didn't seem gimmicky, just fun. Forget going to the gym- just buy this Blu Ray and enjoy 45 years of an immense talent!!!!!!!!!!!!!

VIDEO:

Elton John’s Million Dollar Piano arrives on blu-ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080i 1.78:1 encode. The picture is generally incredibly sharp and clear looking, with deep, solid blacks and convincing contrast. Colours are bold and very vividly saturated. The video presentation on the giant video screen in the background is truly outstanding, almost appearing 3-dimensional. (4.5/5)

AUDIO:

Elton John’s Million Dollar Piano arrives on blu-ray with DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio or LPCM 2.0. The audio is presented with excellently clear and faithful accountings of the music. The 5.1 mix does have noticeably more ambience, with a more spacious rendering of the music. The sound from Yamaha’s million dollar piano is truly spectacular and clean. One can hear every single note from the piano, despite of all the other instrumental tracks in the background. Elton is truly magical on the piano, and does not miss a single note. The band is also outstanding, especially Davey Johnstone playing his Captain Fantastic guitar and Nigel Olssen on drums. Although Elton’s voice now is not as refined as when he was younger, his presentation and showmanship are both top-notched. (4.5/5)

CONCERT:

This concert was filmed on location at the Colosseum, Caesars Palace, Las Vegas. Next to Elton John, the centerpiece must be Yamaha’s million dollar piano, with LED video screens on each side of the piano. As noted above, the sound from the piano is truly magical, crisp and clean.

Super-ornate lighting and staging surround Sir Elton during this outstanding show(s) from Caesar's Palace featuring a Yamaha $1,000,000 (actually 1.4 million dollar) piano with LED lighting. Frankly the piano's effects were only a small portion of what must have been an incredible visual and sonic experience for the 4000 people in attendance. There was so much going on in the background that there were times that I wished the director would have used more wide shots, especially during the performance of "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" when the audience was apparently seeing a visual depiction of the career of the man singing the song while we disc viewers were left mostly with close-ups of the singer and members of the band.

One of the most welcome and interesting performances was the seldom-played live, "Indian Sunset" from the "Madman Across the Water" album that featured Elton backed only by percussionist Ray Cooper.

I don't know about most viewers but when I watch a concert disc, I at least prefer to have the illusion that I am watching one performance. While most of the band members seemed to have gotten the memo requesting that they wear the same clothing during the filmed performances, backup singer Rose Stone (from Sly and the Family Stone) and the late bass player, Bob Birch, apparently did not. I found it very distracting to see Ms. Stone wearing two different blond wigs in shots taken from within the same song. Similarly, I was constantly amazed to see Mr. Birch's jacket appear and disappear within the same song. Unfortunately these were not isolated occurrences either; I noticed the same things happening multiple times.

Don't let my quibbles stop you from purchasing this disc if you are an Elton John fan or even a marginal one. The fact remains that I still awarded it five stars due to the strength of the performances and overall presentation. The Piano Man certainly didn't just phone it in!

Love Elton and this is a very good concert, but some of the performances seem stripped-down. Concert itself is just a little over an hour and forty minutes, and that is with the encore. Gone is Elton's signature epic version of "Rocket Man" replaced with a nice version, but i was looking forward to one of his amazing extended renditions of one of his best songs ever. Gone completely are numerous classics like "Daniel," "Burn Down the "Mission" and "Somebody Saved My Life Tonight." Best performance for me were "Indian "Sunset" with just Elton and the legendary Ray Cooper, handling what originally included his band and a full orchestra. The encore is just "Circle of Life" but its beautifully performed with a stunning, cinematic backdrop that fondly recalls "The Lion King" The only really annoying part of the show comes when many audience members come on to the stage during "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting." The electrifying production and staging is marred by these people almost swallowing up Elton; some holding their cell phones inches from his face. Coming to mind was "Tantrums and Tiaras" moments when Elton was not happy when fans invade his space. What some of these fans did on stage re-defines the yword 'invasion' Overall a nice, but too short performance. I have to say, I liked the "Red Piano" show much more. Although i could do without the silly inflatables, the use of video sceens was more creative and exciting. I also thought that the "Red Piano" show as a video, was better produced and featured many shots of the actual, wonderful staging and production values, which is not the case with this one. If you're an EJ fan, this is worth purchasing, but not everyone will slobber all over themselves in excitement and euphoria viewing this.
