Some things never change and perhaps never should. So maybe it’s no surprise, even a bit reassuring, that “Jubilee” is still camp.
Tom Green is doing OK in his transition from TV prankster to agitated stand-up comedian, but he’s not going to turn down any extra help. On certain nights, that helps comes in the form of a visit from Andrew Dice Clay, who usually follows Green with a separately ticketed show in the Hard Rock Hotel’s Vinyl club.
The annual ACM awards will celebrate the academy’s 50th anniversary with a one-time move next year to the Dallas Cowboys’ stadium, but the Academy president is already vowing to “drive this back to Vegas.”
Is it too late for anything but the life boats? Or can the “reimagined” “Jubilee” still steer around that iceberg that makes the nightly sinking of the Titanic an apt metaphor for the new version of the Strip’s 33-year-old crown jewel, officially unveiled Saturday.
Holly Madison says it’s time for Vegas to think small. Madison, who starred in “Peepshow,” sees those empty seats for most ticketed shows are a sign of something else missing in the bigger entertainment picture. So she’s opening a new club, 1923 Bourbon & Burlesque, that will offer burlesque acts but not a traditionally ticketed show.
Terry Fator’s live show is getting to be a little like “The Muppet Show.” After five years, there’s no reason for him to behave as if we’re not as familiar with his puppet characters as we are with him.
The short-term forecast calls for it raining men. But if you fear these girls’ nights are getting out of hand, Holly Madison will be back in the burlesque business soon.
There’s an old saying on the Strip: “It ain’t a show without a gaucho.”
“Divorce Party Las Vegas,” a new cabaret musical in the cool Windows Showroom at Bally’s, is one of many bouncing around the country.
Priced out of Cirque du Soleil’s big “One Night for One Drop” benefit last year? Friday brings a second chance, with entry-level tickets going for less than a prime Celine Dion seat.
Onstage she is Jenny Arata, half of a breathtakingly dangerous variety act known as the Skating Aratas.
Country music fans will have the new High Roller observation wheel to steer them to this year’s events surrounding the Academy of Country Music awards, but they will need to show up with some cash. And not show up on Fremont Street, unless they are willing to settle for less-famous bands.
Red Rock Resort has announced a series of concerts planned for the outdoor Sandbar pool area.
Eric Jordan Young has done a show on the Strip more than 2,000 times for four years now, but no one is calling him a Las Vegas headliner. That’s the next thing he’d like to be.
Of course, Cirque du Soleil wants you to see all of its Las Vegas shows. Knock yourself out, I’m sure they would say.
The Riviera always had a crazy number of show venues for what its room count and location could support. So don’t be surprised to learn it’s on the way back to hosting seven or eight titles again.
The Amazing Johnathan has already cheated death a few times, one Sunday afternoon in particular.
These are the Jacksons, not the Jackson 5. And they are the Jacksons in their mid-50s to early-60s, without their lead singer. But it doesn’t take long for the open-minded to realize it is possible to be a new group and an old one at the same time.
From wedding to divorce in one hour? Hey, it’s Vegas.
It’s clearly not about production values, as a hand-held camera follows four magicians around the interior of your standard-issue Las Vegas apartment.
If you get to “X Burlesque” early, there’s a preshow video in which Howard Stern asks the same question I always used to ask. “Who goes to burlesque shows?”
Don’t think you can just pay 10 bucks for the new DVD of Terry Fator’s Mirage show and save the other $65 on a show ticket because it’s going to be the same thing.
If you write a song about Las Vegas, you gotta go big.
If you wonder why Criss Angel’s arm’s in a stylish black sling, or why the show title has changed from “Believe” to “Magicjam” for the next month or so, he shows us “eight seconds of pretty gross stuff” to explain it.
