Elton John's current contract with Caesar's Palace for his Las Vegas residency is up at the end of the year, but he says the Vegas shows have been among his favorites and wants to extend his stay until at least 2016.

Elton told Las Vegas columnist Robin Leach: I’m going to keep on doing shows, especially here in Las Vegas, because this run truly has been the best ever. We have always had the best time in Vegas. We love it here. I’m serious about continuing it out to at least 2016."
