Yamaha has unveiled its $1 million Elton John piano in Las Vegas.

Yamaha has secretly been developing a unique $1 million piano for Sir Elton John, which was officially unveiled last night (September 28th) as the superstar launched his three-year Las Vegas residency at Caesar's Palace.

It is now evident as to why his show is entitled the Million Dollar Piano.

The instrument was created in shrouds of secrecy with meticulous craftsmanship over a four-year period.

It's fair to say it is exceptional in every way and future audiences will be eager to see how the sound resonates live.

The global megastar's piano even has a name of its own – Blossom, which is named after Blossom Dearie.

Showing that age hasn't dampened his dry British humour, Elton said: "It has a spin cycle washer in the back, a microwave and an aquarium. The only thing it's missing [is] a barbecue."

Elton, who was knighted in 1998, is famous for hits like Rocket Man, Your Song, Candle in the Wind, Can You Feel The Love Tonight and Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word.

He has sold more than 250 million records across the world.
