At the centerpiece of the performance is the show’s namesake “million

than 68 LED video screens. A collaboration between Elton and Yamaha
Entertainment Group of America, this state-of-the-art instrument is the
perfect accompaniment to his spectacular show, as it displays imagery to
complement each of the show’s iconic songs. For “The Million Dollar

Davey Johnstone on guitar, the late 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.
Elton is one of the top-selling solo artists of all time, with 35 gold
and 25 platinum albums, 29 consecutive Top 40 hits, and he has sold more
than 250 million records worldwide. Elton holds the record for the
biggest selling single of all time, “Candle in the Wind ’97,” which sold
37 million copies. He also holds the record for most appearances on
Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart, with his newest single, "Home
Again," marking his 69th entry. Since his career began in 1969, he has
played over 3,000 concerts worldwide. Elton has recently been named the
first recipient of the BRITs Icon Award, which recognizes the very

Dollar Piano’ performance,” said Dan Diamond, senior vice president of
