    Just wondering if manyone on the forum has been to this show. My mrs wants to go see him as part of our honeymoon trip in May. I's it a good show. I cant help thinking that hes getting older an his voice might be about away.

    We saw it on New Year's Day. It was excellent. It was amazing how strong his voice still is. The graphic display between the staging and the piano itself is amazing and a wholly different experience in itself. Our tickets were in the upper balcony, but were still quite enjoyable.

    Although I have not seen this particular show, I've seen him many times. Never been disappointed. Enjoy!

    We're from Edinburgh and loved his show at Caesar's! On the other hand, Rod Stewart's voice was a little suspect, although still a good show.

    Saw Elton a few years ago (Red Piano) and would see him again in a minute. We also saw Rod Stewart last year and he was great lots of energy and voice, our night was really good. For aging gentlemen they are both doing as well as they were years ago.....Rick,

    Rod's voice has sounded "suspect", rough, crackly since he was 20 :) I love his stuff (except the disco crap he put out for awhile).

    Elton is definitely someone you should see at least once.

    The Elton John show was amazing. We saw the show a couple years ago. I was a little concerned about his voice too, but his voice and energy were very strong. Excellent show!!

    sat in upper balcony, and Captain Fantastic can still bang those keys. Hearing Indian Sunset live for the first time was amazing.

    We saw his Red Piano show on our first trip to Vegas and we loved it. He puts on a great show and you won't be disappointed.

    Glad to hear these great reviews. We are seeing Elton John on his last night in Vegas-May 5th. Also my birthday & Cinco de Mayo! Sound like it will be a great night..:clap:
    Any suggestions on a decent dinner to make the night complete??

    I really enjoyed it, as well. I didn't spend big $$, so I was a ways away, but could see and hear everything just fine. Unless you just have to have close, VIP type seats, I would not spend the extra money.
