Celebrity weekend preview

The spooky and scary Halloween holiday is underway with a weekend of sky-high stiletto heels and skimpy costumes that leave nothing to the imagination. From the erotic to the exotic, it’s five nights of dressing up as wicked and wanton witches with gangsters, goblins and ghouls thrown in for good measure as we celebrate the Day of the Dead.

And with the arrival 40-years later of “Halloween 2018” with the return of Mike Meyers and Jamie Lee Curtis Halloween is still dark and dangerous. Here’s the trailer:

Freddie Kreuger and Leather Face are also still attracting their fans and Michael Jackson’s 1982 Thriller LP is still spinning with sales of over 100 million copies of the world’s best-selling album :

Even new Strip magician David Goldrake has a special Halloween themed show of illusions and a spirit séance at the Tropicana, and Hollywood Undead’s inebriated hip-hop industrial sounds are at the Palms.

The largest escape room in Vegas, Escape Reality, is amping up its seven themed escape rooms with live actors to enhance the fear factor. The Psycho Circus takes over at the GlowZone with an indoor glow in the dark challenge.

The granddaddy of all Halloween parties is, without a doubt, the Fetish & Fantasy Ball — this year at the Red Rock Resort. It’s outrageous, bizarre and risqué — the most adult of the adult Halloween shindigs — a collection of twisted, crazy, edgy performers

In the midst of the madness, though, there’s some normalcy with superstars Britney Spears at Planet Hollywood Resort, Sir Elton John at Caesars Palace, Ringo Starr at Planet Hollywood Resort, diva Diana Ross at the Wynn and Jay Z with his 4.44 tour stop at the T-Mobile Arena. Hurry — a new block of final sale tickets have just been released for tomorrow’s show.

Remember, though, that makeup maestro Marilyn Manson has had to scrap his plans for tonight and tomorrow’s planned shows at the House of Blues due to an on-stage September injury. They’re being rescheduled for Jan. 12 and 13. But fear not, horror master John Carpenter will perform his collection of classic movie soundtracks live at the Hard Rock Hotel on Sunday.

Please support the American Cancer Society’s breast cancer walk, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, tomorrow (Saturday) starting at 8 a.m. at the Red Rock Resort, A year ago, 22,000 walkers in Southern Nevada helped raise more than $700,000. This year’s walk celebrates 25 years of saving lives nationwide in the fight against the second leading cause of cancer death in women. Another walk sets off at Town Square as part of the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s disease with the Walk to End Alzheimer’s and a poignant Promise Garden ceremony.

In saying happy fifth birthday to the Neon Museum this weekend and welcoming comedian Tom Green to his new Bally’s residency starting Sunday, let’s make massive noise as the spooktacular weekend gets underway to keep us all spellbound with enough events in the Royal Robin Rundown to wake the dead:
