Who can forget Elton John at the Van Andel Arena last April?  he brought his band and it was 2-hours of non-stop hits.  What a night.

Well, Elton is off the road for a bit but he's not off the stage.  He is returning to Las Vegas for a three-year headlining gig at Caesars Palace.

The five-time Grammy winner is scheduled to perform Wednesday night for the first of 16 shows scheduled through October. The show is titled "The Million Dollar Piano."

John says it's named for the instrument he'll play during the show -- a piano that took manufacturer Yamaha four years to build.

His return comes more than two years after a five-year stint that ended in 2009. That run was originally planned for three years, but was extended because of demand.

John is one of music's most decorated stars. He was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 1998 and inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1999.

Here's a way to re-live the exciting Grand Rapids concert from last year.
