Elton John concludes five-year Las Vegas run Elton John Tickets

The Rocket Man bids farewell to the Strip during emotional set

Elton John concludes five-year Las Vegas run
Elton John played his final show on the Las Vegas Strip last night (April 22) after a five-year run at the famed Caesars Palace hotel and casino.

The veteran singer performed an emotional finale laden with hits including 'Candle In The Wind,' 'Rocket Man' and 'Tiny Dancer'.

"Who are you going to get to fill in our shoes now?" he asked the crowd. "You've got Bette Midler, you've got Cher. It's gonna be the Village People next."

John initially signed a three-year contract to perform at the casino but his run was extended to five years and a total of 241 shows due to great demand, reports the Associated Press.

"The ex-home of Celine Dion…and now it's the ex-home of Elton John as well. One day I might even see you in Vegas, OK? But until then, I love you," he said before leaving the stage.
