Sir Elton John has extended his residency in Las Vegas for another three years.

The Rocket Man's The Million Dollar Piano show was due to finish in late 2014 after a three-year run, but the singer has signed a new deal with Caesars Palace bosses to extend the shows until 2017.

Elton John will return to the resort's Colosseum venue under the new agreement on 16 January (15). Performance dates have been released until April (15).

Celine Dion also has a residency at Caesars Palace until 2017. In August (14), she scrapped her performance dates until March 2015 so she could care for her sick husband Rene.

News of Elton John's deal comes amid reports Jennifer Lopez is poised to become the latest big name star heading to Sin City. The singer/actress is believed to be in talks to perform two years of shows at the Planet Hollywood casino and resort, where fellow pop star Britney Spears has a residency.
