Elton John to close Vegas show

'Red Piano' to end run on April 22

Elton John is playing his final notes on the red piano in Las Vegas.

Promoters say the pop singer will close his Las Vegas Strip show, “The Red Piano,” on April 22.

The show made its debut in February 2004 at The Colosseum theater at Caesars Palace. After initially signing on for 75 shows, John’s engagement was extended.

The casino says the closing show will be the 241st performance.

The offbeat production blends the singer’s top hits with elaborate video montages created by photographer and director David LaChappelle.

Tickets for the final engagement go on sale Thursday. John’s show alternates with other Colosseum headline acts, including Bette Midler and Cher.

A casino spokeswoman said there was no word on a replacement.
