Rod Stewart to Begin Two-Year Vegas Residency

ABC/Donna Svennevik(LAS VEGAS) -- Rod Stewart will begin a two-year residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas starting August 24, according to Billboard.  Tickets go on sale May 15 for the show, called Rod Stewart: The Hits.  That means Stewart, his good friend Elton John and Celine Dion will all have shows running concurrently at Caesars Palace.

Stewart tells Billboard that the show will be "90 percent songs that people know," and adds, "It's a rock'n'roll show. We'll try to give the people what they want, which are the songs that made me famous, plus a few surprises. There won't be any magicians or midgets, just a good rock show."

He also says that in a few weeks, he plans to meet up with Jeff Beck in England for more work on the album of blues songs that they're recording.

Elton John Returning to Las Vegas with 'The Million Dollar Piano'

PRNewsFoto/Sundance Channel(LAS VEGAS) -- Celine Dion came back to Las Vegas, and now Elton John is doing the same thing.  Sir Elton will return to the Colosseum at Caesars Palace with a brand-new show on September 28.  It's called The Million Dollar Piano, and it'll play for three years.  Sixteen shows have been scheduled so far, and tickets go on sale April 25.

In a statement, John said, "Caesars Palace is just a perfect, idyllic place to play, and the show will be a gargantuan feast of music and imagery. I’m going to have a fabulous piano that Yamaha has been working on for four years, and that’s the reason why the show is called The Million Dollar Piano.”

John's previous five-year residency at Caesars Palace, which wrapped up in April of 2009, was a huge financial and critical success.  It's not surprising that John wants to do another one -- now that he's a father, staying in one place would offer him a more stable environment than touring the world.

Celine Dion's New Las Vegas Show Opens Tuesday Night

Frazer Harrison/Getty Images(LAS VEGAS) -- It's the moment for which Celine Dion fans have been waiting for more than three years -- her return to the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.

Tuesday night marks the official opening of Dion's brand-new show, simply called Celine.  By all indications, this show will be as successful as her first: the initial run of dates is already sold out, and those scheduled for June through August are selling briskly.  An additional 16 shows, scheduled for between Dec. 28 and Jan. 22, will go on sale this Saturday.

At a press conference a few weeks ago when she and her family arrived back in Las Vegas, the singer told a crowd gathered at Caesars Palace, "I'm looking forward to present [the new show] to you, and I'm very very excited.  Because every time you put a show together, you wonder, 'What are we gonna do next?'  And it's going to be an amazing show."

The set list for Dion will include the singer backed by a 31-piece orchestra and performing her greatest hits, but also many cover versions, ranging from a Michael Jackson tribute, to some James Bond themes, to her versions of songs by Journey, Billy Joel, and Janis Ian.
