'I look at it as a piece of art; This idea of a piano with LED screens...it becomes cinema!'

Mark your calendars for March 18. That's when Elton John's gorgeously filmed concert movie (which he performed at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas), The Million Dollar Piano, will hit cinema screens around the world.

The concert will be shown in an expected 500 theaters across the United States and a total of 1,200 in over 40 countries including the U.K., Ireland, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Brazil, Mexico, Canada, and Australia.

Sure it's whimsical, it's Elton! According to press materials, the epic undertaking has been nearly four years in the making, and includes state-of-the-art piano displays (the piano weighs in at nearly 3,200 pounds) to compliment some of the most enduring and iconic songs of the 20th century.

And we've got an exclusive clip of him performing one of the classics, "Benny and the Jets." Enjoy it below. 

Tickets for the March 18 spectacle available here.
