Elton John gets standing ovation from Las Vegas fans


Washington (ANI): English singer Sir Elton John got a standing ovation from his fans in Las Vegas as he played the final show in his five-year residency. John, 62, who has been a regular fixture at the Colosseum at Caesar's Palace since signing on for a three-year deal in February 2004, was scheduled to play 75 shows over that time period, but a further 166 concert dates were added due to popular demand.

He brought the curtain down on The Red Piano show this week, paying tribute to the other superstars who have also enjoyed extended runs at the Colosseum. The singer wowed the crowds with hits like Candle in the Wind, Tiny Dancer and Rocket Man, earning him a standing ovation from fans after each song.

"The ex-home of Celine Dion... and now it's the ex-home of Elton John as well," Contactmusic quoted him as saying. "Who are you going to get to fill in our shoes now? You've got Bette Midler, you've got Cher. It's gonna be the Village People next," he said.

But the five-time Grammy winner isn't ruling out a return to the Vegas stage. "I really have enjoyed every single moment of this engagement. One day I might even see you in Vegas, OK? But until then, I love you," he added.
