Sir Elton John is returning to Las Vegas for a three-year residency at Caesars Palace with his new Million Dollar Piano show.

His return to the hotel's Colosseum in September follows his five-year run at the hotel with The Red Piano show which ended in April 2009.

Sir Elton said the venue was the "perfect, idyllic place to play" and promised "a gargantuan feast of music".

Tickets for the first 16 concerts will go on sale on 25 April.

He said the show, which begins on 28 September, was named after a "fabulous piano" he would be using that instrument designers had been working on for four years.

Sir Elton is currently on tour in North America before beginning European dates on 24 May.

A series of dates in the UK start on 5 June at Scarborough Open Air Theatre.
