Elton John - Elton John celebrates his birthday

Elton John enjoyed a belated birthday celebration in Las Vegas on Friday night (28.03.14).

The 'Tiny Dancer' hitmaker toasted turning 67 on Tuesday (25.03.14) at the grand opening of his new champagne lounge at Caesars Palace Hotel with his partner David Furnish.

The couple were joined at the bash by their good friend Sharon Osbourne, her daughter Kelly Osbourne and former 'Bond' girl Britt Ekland, according to the MailOnline website.

Elton and David, 51, who have two sons Zachary, three, and Elijah, 14-months, together, were also celebrating the legalisation of same-sex marriage in the UK on Friday night.

The pair were one of the first gay couples to enter into a civil partnership in 2005, and David recently admitted he feels it is their ''duty'' to have a wedding.

He said: ''Elton and I will marry - as a high-profile couple, we feel it is our duty to do it, to make sure that everyone knows that this is something that many gay men living in this country never dreamed would happen.

''When it was announced that gay couples were able to obtain a civil partnership, Elton and I did so on the day it came into law.

''As something of a showman, [Elton] is aware that whatever he says and does, people will sit up and take notice - so what better way to celebrate that historic moment in time.''
