Elton John replaces Celine Dion on some dates at Caesars Palace

Provides an up-close opportunity for some concert goers.

(SNN) – Considered one of the best performers to ever grace the stage at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, Elton John continues to wow audiences. His “The Million Dollar Piano” show is being extended to include some dates that Canadian diva, Celine Dion, was scheduled for, leaving Dion's future on the Las Vegas stage uncertain. According to a Caesars Entertainment news release, Elton John's show is being extended for three years.

Will Dion's absence be a concern to music lovers?

Fellow Canadian, Bill Pratt, who had the privilege of being on the stage with Elton John at a recent concert posted on Facebook, it was “.... perhaps one of the greatest concerts I've had the privilege of attending.”

According to Pratt, a musician from Edmonton, Alberta, if you are able to book a seat in the two rows of the section in front, you can get up on stage with him during the closing number, “Saturday Night's Alright.”  There were, “no restrictions, sit on the bench with him, dance with the band,” stated Pratt, “which I did... so, so cool.”

As for Dion, the Canadian superstar cited her husband Rene Angelil’s fight with throat cancer as the key reason for her hiatus.

The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, which was purposely built for Celine Dion, is home to the world’s top entertainers, which include Elton John, Shania Tain and Rod Stewart.

Whether Celin Dion returns to the Colosseum or not, it is clear that Elton John, the Grammy, Tony and Academy Award winning entertainer from Middlesex, UK, is sure to keep people singing and dancing in Las Vegas.
