The Red Piano
April 13, 2005 9:58 AM   Subscribe

The Red Piano designed and directed by David LaChapelle featuring Elton John, now showing at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Some clips are burlesque (2mb qt), weird (1.5mb qt) or meaningless out of context(12.5mb qt), but this most beautiful dance sequence(20mb qt) makes it all worthwhile.

most of the video clips are NSFW methinks. Looks really bad... but titillating. Vegas...

dr_dank: I hope you're not confusing Dave Chapelle with David LaChapelle.

Gotta love that copy:

"Commercially, creatively, on stage and on record, Elton John is a legendary artist — one who is still as relevant as ever."

If you have to tell me an artist is still relevant, chances are the artist isn't...

I didn't know he was the same guy who did this. (Posted just a few days ago!)

I went to the show and was pretty impressed. It was my understanding that the show I was going to was being taped for TV and that they were closing up shop shortly (for the return of Celine).
I especially enjoyed the huge inflatable female body parts. Accompanied, of course, with some huge inflatable bananas.

David LaChapelle is also the man behind Rize, the upcoming documentary all about krumping.
