Stratosphere headliner Frankie Moreno joined the cast of the smash-hit musical MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET at Harrah's Las Vegas for a special guest encore appearance, performing the Jerry Lee Lewis hit, "Rockin' My Life Away." Scroll down for photos from his performance!

Moreno took the stage following the finale of MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET where he was welcomed with applause and cheering from the packed Showroom. One of the highlights of the performance included a moment where Moreno and Martin Kaye (Jerry Lee Lewis) engaged in "piano four hands," where each was playing simultaneously.

Named "Headliner of the Year in Las Vegas," Moreno is a classically trained musician and entertainer, making him a natural fit to add to the line-up of Strip headliners who have joined MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET to celebrate the music of the production's era through live jam sessions. Previous entertainers that have graced the stage with the cast include Bally's Las Vegas headliner and one-woman vocal phenomenon, Véronic DiCaire, and "American Idol" winner Taylor Hicks.

The Tony Award Winning musical, MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET takes place on December 4, 1956, when Sam Phillips, the "Father of Rock 'n' Roll," brought iconic musicians Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins together at the Sun Records storefront studio in Memphis for the first and only time.

MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET brings that legendary December night to life with the extraordinary story of secrets, betrayal, and the once in a lifetime celebration of four friends that is both poignant and funny. Relive the era with the smash-hit sensation featuring an incredible score of rock 'n' roll, gospel, R&B and country hits, performed live onstage by world-class actors and musicians. Showcased hit songs include: "Blue Suede Shoes," "I Walk the Line," "Great Balls of Fire,""Sixteen Tons," "Who Do You Love?," "Fever," "Folsom Prison Blues," "Hound Dog," "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," "Ring of Fire," and more. MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET performs Sunday - Wednesday and Friday at 7 p.m.; Thursday at 5:30 and 8 p.m.; and is dark on Saturday. Ticket prices begin at $62.70 plus applicable fees.

Unlike any other show on the Strip, Frankie Moreno Live at Stratosphere is a throwback to the kinds of performances that made Vegas showrooms famous!

It's a show full of music performed by talented musicians, where guests feel welcomed and invited to share the experience right along with the performers.
