Achmed the Dead Terrorist is no stranger to the ways of Sin City. Ventriloquist Jeff Dunham has worked on the Strip since before his most famous puppet was even invented. But in November, Dunham and his puppet sidekicks will become full-fledged Las Vegas headliners, with a residency at Planet Hollywood.
There’s a full-circle coolness to Saturday’s Junefest show on Sunset Station’s lawn being headlined by Creedence Clearwater Revisited, who shared the stage with Carlos Santana and RatDog back in 1997.
It isn’t Las Vegas without an Elvis impersonator, sure. But anymore, it isn’t Las Vegas without a Tim McGraw impersonator, some nights working a few blocks away from where the real McGraw is singing. You can choose either one at adjacent venues inside the V Theater.
Chelsea Handler changed Las Vegas, and didn’t even have to be here to do it
Jeff Civillico still relies on hand-to-eye coordination, but his low-budget show at The Quad doesn’t really feel like one when it comes to ideas per dollar.
Cirque du Soleil doesn’t appear to be packing up and leaving Las Vegas anytime soon. So the next best hope of all the smaller shows in town is that the Strip’s dominant producer will be really, wildly successful.
Kevin James says he won’t be confused for a member of the Rat Pack. But he is a veteran Las Vegas headliner getting at least a one-day taste of the “Ocean’s Eleven” legend, working a showroom by night and a movie set by day.
Las Vegas is the magic capital of the world, but its magicians don’t represent the world’s diversity. Reynold Alexander is out to change that with “Magia.”
So a guy who should be a resident headliner on the Strip is going out on the road with an opening act who sort of tried that already. Will Cee Lo Green learn from the master, Lionel Richie?
Edgy satire and old-fashioned musical numbers combine to bring all kinds of audiences to the Tony-winning musical “The Book of Mormon,” which opens an almost monthlong Smith Center run Tuesday.
There’s still a certain sizzle to having “Las Vegas” in your name. Maybe less so for pavers or locksmiths, but definitely for three singers trying to sell tickets to people who haven’t heard of them.
The classroom wasn’t as packed with television cameras and people in suits this time. Most of those little chairs that make a grown-up feel like Gulliver in Lilliput stayed empty.
The Fray, a band from Denver is just that — a band. Unlike many groups splitting up and running away with solo careers, this band of musicians plans to create together, with four guys and “four distinct personalities.”
Mark Brett remembers his future wife, Michelle Berting Brett, calling his bluff when he claimed to love The Carpenters, thinking he just said that to get on her good side: “Do you have a Carpenters record sandwiched in between your Stones and Zeppelin and Floyd?”
So Randy Couture walks into a bar … Maybe you can keep going with an actual joke, but this story leads to Friday’s “Coyote Under the Stars & Stripes” benefit.
Girls just want to have fun. Guys just want to have the “Girls.” Nothing reminds you of this more quickly than back-to-back viewings of two shows at the Riviera, the venerable “Crazy Girls” and its young tables-turning roommate, “Men the Experience.”
Nothing promotes a live Las Vegas show like TV exposure. So Nathan Morris of Boyz II Men will be watching “The Bachelorette” for the very first time this week, because he is on it.
You can get your Frank Marino and Frankie Moreno mixed up, but don’t be confusing their number of shows.
Cher doesn’t change, so what does? The eternal pop star’s “Dressed to Kill” tour doesn’t sound radically different from the headliner show that parked at Caesars Palace from 2008 to 2011. Reviews from the road cite gymnasts, Vegas-y production numbers, the same “Half Breed” headdress and the same Cher ass (which turned 68 on Tuesday) in chaps.
Stand-up is the second chapter for Tom Green, but it’s also a return to the first chapter.
Cyndi Lauper will be here to make sure Las Vegas starts and ends its summer on the right Cyndi Lauper note. In between? We’re kind of on our own.
Fear not “Mamma Mia!” fans. The beloved ABBA musical did not lose any sparkle as it danced its way back onto the Strip, even if it did set the cute control this time.
