Elton Dedicates Song to Prince


At two of his Million Dollar Piano shows following the passing of Prince on April 21, Elton told the Las Vegas crowds how he heard about the tragedy as he introduced I Guess That’s Why They Call It The Blues.

Calling his death an “enormous, enormous loss,” Elton explained how he had sung with Prince twice (both times during encores at Prince shows in 2007) and regarded him as “the greatest musician I’ve ever seen live on stage, without question.”

To see the full dedication from April 23, which includes an amusing anecdote, watch the video below.
