Elton John Concert To Be Screened In Cinemas Across The UK & Ireland For One Night Only On 22nd March 2014

On Saturday 22nd March for one night only, Cinema Live in association with Rocket Music Entertainment Group, Yamaha Entertainment Group of America and Universal Music will release one of the world's most sensational concerts from the legendary singer, songwriter and performer Elton John. The concert will be shown in over 200 cinemas across the UK & Ireland including Odeon, Cineworld and Vue Theatres, forming a totalof 1,200 cinemas worldwide in over 40 countries including the US, Canada, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Mexico and Australia. 
 
Coming to your local cinema the critically acclaimed concert was recorded at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas.
 
'The Million Dollar Piano', is being performed to standing ovations during Elton's current residency at Caesar's Palace and includes all of Elton's greatest hits from throughout his career including 'Rocket Man', 'Tiny Dancer', 'Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting', 'I'm Still Standing', 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road', 'Crocodile Rock' and 'Your Song'.
 
At the centrepiece of the performance is the show's namesake piano, an engineering marvel featuring more than 68 LED video screens created by Yamaha. Nearly four years in the making, the state-of-the-art piano is the perfect accompaniment to Elton's greatest hits displaying fantastical imagery to complement the entertainer's fan favourites. Creating a whimsical, one-of-a-kind entertainment experience, the piano weighs in at nearly 3,200 pounds.
 
Completing the incredible spectacle is the show's impressive and elaborate baroque style stage set, masterminded by the show's design team, the late Mark Fisher and Patrick Woodroffe. Fisher (best known for his design of Pink Floyd's "The Wall" and his work designing the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2008 Beijing Olympics) and Woodroffe conceived and designed the impressive lights display that perfectly augments the set and piano.
 
Elton said, "I've had the best time [in Las Vegas] because I always thought of it as a challenge and wanted put on the best show. I don't think there could be a better looking show than this in Vegas or in any venue anywhere."
