Elton John & His Band

From the venue:Occasional hometown boy Elton John recently released the high-profile T-Bone Burnett-produced album The Diving Board, and has been slinging out the hits to high rollers in Vegas. That victory lap pays the bills, but doesnâ€™t speak much to artistic integrity. Similarly, the nearly $200 price tag for a non-nosebleed seat here also guarantees you wonâ€™t get too many new (i.e., bathroom break) songs. Those old ones still sound great, though, and the rocking pianistâ€™s indefatigable energy and well-deserved status as an icon provides the rest.
