Daniel Platzman offers peace and love to Beatles during Cirque show celebration

Imagine Dragons drummer Daniel Platzman showed some love at the 10th anniversary celebration of “The Beatles Love” on Thursday at The Mirage.

Platzman had a peace sign shaved onto the left side of his head. It was a hit on the red carpet that included Beatles icons Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.

“I thought it would be appropriate for the occasion,” said Platzman, who was with bandmate and bassist Ben McKee.

McCartney left photographers sputtering with frustration when he and his wife, Nancy Shevell, did a quick pose or two before rushing away minutes before showtime.

Also on the red carpet were Yoko Ono, the widow of John Lennon, and Olivia Harrison, the widow of George Harrison.

Ono told Mark Gray, who was covering for People magazine, she thought the longevity of the Beatles would continue “over the next century.”

ANGEL CALLED OUT

R-J colleague Mike Weatherford filed this follow-up Thursday on the kerfuffle between magicians Criss Angel and Brett Daniels.

“A magician wants to take his beef with Criss Angel to a new place — a cage, specifically, for a mixed martial arts brawl.

“A lot of people want to see this fight happen,” Daniels says in a video challenge to the Luxor headliner. “A lot of people want to see you get your ass beat. I’m one of them.”

“It’s about time somebody called him out,” Daniels added by telephone. “What can I do, say, ‘Let’s do card tricks’?”

The two once were friends and prospective partners for a packaged tour of magicians similar to the Broadway partners and touring show, “The Illusionists.” But Daniels said they could never come to terms on a contract, and he claims Angel proceeded to use illusions Daniels has the rights to for both the touring show “The Supernaturalists” and the new edition of his Luxor showcase.

Daniels also shared a July 12 email he says he sent to Angel: “Tell me why you didn’t ask me before you put my levitation efx in your new show?” he wrote. “I see your many posts with Chuck Lidell (sic), Randy Couture — all of the MMA guys. … Your countless tweets of you in the gym — you’re in shape, buddy!

“I’m challenging you to a full-contact 3-round MMA fight. Las Vegas, 2017. You and me — hey — I’m a 55-year-old man … out of shape and never got into a fight in my adult life.

“But for you — I’ll learn to fight,” he concluded. “We’ll do it for charity. It’ll be fun.”

Angel responded to Daniels’ challenge in a Thursday email: “I have already schooled this wannabe in the Palms parking lot. No need to waste time doing it again.” He added, “This is the last time I’ll address such pettiness.”

THE PUNCH LINE
