Elton John’s impressive run will total 13 years when he takes his final bow next may, but The Who are only rumored to be signing a much more manageable two year contract.Notify me of new posts via email.

Mirror’s source is quoted as saying. \”Their shows this summer were a critical success and a sellout, with Roger’s voice sounding better than ever. They enjoyed the gigs and unique opportunity of a residency and were open to repeating it for a longer run. The talks have been going well and there is a genuine hope that a deal will be done.\”

All that's left to negotiate is reportedly the length of the residency and the overall number of shows. The Mirror pegs John's Colosseum residency at 13 years and 450 shows when it ends next May — an impressive run that Daltrey and Townshend don't seem to have any intention of matching.

( Log Out / Change )Daily Mirror, the band plans to set up shop in a venue they've already given the residency treatment: the Colosseum Theatre at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, where they played a series of shows earlier this year. The paper cites a "Vegas insider" with apparent knowledge of negotiations between the band and the venue, where promoters are looking for a new top-drawer headliner to replace the outgoing Elton John.

"Elton is leaving, so the promoters and resort wanted to bring in an act of equal stature," the Mirror's source is quoted as saying. "Their shows this summer were a critical success and a sellout, with Roger’s voice sounding better than ever. They enjoyed the gigs and unique opportunity of a residency and were open to repeating it for a longer run. The talks have been going well and there is a genuine hope that a deal will be done."
