I guess there is always a chance.

But .... if folks have already gobbled up the less expensive tickets, then they will sit on the more expensive ones counting on folks like you spending a little more than you want to, or they will hand them over to casino services / hosts to offer to their better players.

There are some single cheaper seats available on the 13th as I just checked randomly for the $175.00 price range [orchestra section]. Of course that means you can't sit with the person you are travelling with [assuming that you are not solo]. If you need 2 seats together then you might be out of luck for that date as I saw all of those are sold out, including the most expensive ones as of this writing. You could try putting your name on the cancelation waiting list with the hotel concierge. A certain number of tix are held back for favored guests but are sometimes turned back in for sale to the general public. Best of luck RocketMan Fan and next time book farther ahead for popular shows.

Did you just look at ticket master? I got my tickets by calling Caesars, maybe they have some left. Actually got better location cheap seat then what they were offering on line at ticketmaster.

I called box office a couple weeks ago and got front orchestra 10th row seats (2) on the 13th for $250 each. They had better seats than I found on ticketmaster. Definitely give them a call, but I would do it soon

I usually just buy my tickets ahead of time at full price because I'd be disappointed if I didn't get to go to the show I wanted to see, but a friend went to the Ceasar's box office one time and told them she wanted to see Celline but didn't want to pay for the really high priced tickets. They found her some of the least expensive ones for that same night. I guess someone had turned them back in or something. So it is possible. It worked for her, but I'm afraid it might not have for me. Best of luck!

Let me give you my two cents.Elton stood up about 10,00o angry fans--me included in February.What I did learn from that experience--only buy from ticketmaster because you never know.He's 65 and like Celine as iffy as an entertainer.These guys are all flaky so make sure you understand it's 50-50 deal.

A couple of funny items--they weren't funny at the time.Usher told us well he was fine last night--like that made us feel any better.A guy came by about five minutes prior to cancellation asking us if we needed tickets--man I hope he did not totally shaft someone.Anyway they kept us their til five minutes before the show--no chance we could change to another one.The Caesars folks are total #$#@%$@#$ about it all.No here's a free drink or anything remotely offering compensation.At any rate good luck to you.It will be a cold day in #$@# when I go to Caesars for a show.I am that bitter about it.They could have called this off hours before I mean we waited in line to pick up the tickets so we went to Caesars twice and wasted probably an hour or two overall.

And the next week Celine followed that up with like two weeks of no shows.To me it is insane that they cannot have some kind of alternate on a stand by and at least offer you something or some kind of compensation.I hope you fair better than we did.

When they cancel shows, no reschedule? Come to another show another time? Shame on Caesars if not
