John's new show will be titled The Million Dollar Piano, after a special instrument built for the singer by Yahama. John has not announced any further details about the show itself, but it is most likely to focus on his biggest hits, much like his previous Caesars residency. That show, The Red Piano, was originally booked for 75 nights over the course of three years but was expanded to 241 shows in a five-year period, including two brief European arena tours in 2009.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
