This Month's Las Vegas Entertainment Newsletter

July 2016

July is the hottest month of the year according to all of the records kept in Las Vegas, and the thing about living in the desert is...during the summer, it gets hot. There are some essentials that you will need in order to cope with the heat in the desert... sunscreen! Sunscreen!! And did I mention sunscreen! Also water—stay hydrated, (and try putting fruit in your water (oranges, raspberries, etc) to help with electrolytes,) and be sure to use lotion, and limit your time in the sun. The best place to be is inside a casino or a showroom. We pride ourselves that it’s a “dry” heat, but it’s still hot. We thank God for the invention of air conditioning, and we curse the Devil for the invention of power bills. It’s a great time to really enjoy the beautiful summer nights.

The 3,000-room Monte Carlo will undergo a two-year, $450 million makeover that will create a new luxury brand for MGM Resorts International and bring the NoMad Hotel concept to the Strip. The transformation of the property, which will become known as Park MGM, will begin this year and be completed by the end of 2018. The Monte Carlo opened in 1996.

The NHL is now officially the first major professional sports league to gamble on Las Vegas.

The NHL's board of governors unanimously approved expanding to this city, making the franchise the 31st team in the league. The team will start play during the 2017-18 season and will be included in the Pacific Division. The league said its current playoff format will not change. In the expansion draft, which will take place next year, the Las Vegas franchise must select one player from each team for a total of 30 players, with at least 20 being under contract for the 2017-18 season. The franchise also must select at least 14 forwards, nine defensemen and three goaltenders.

Death Valley had such a problem with people frying eggs on their sidewalks, that it is now illegal. The pavement is hot. You may have to rethink when and how you walk your dogs. If the pavement is too hot for you to walk on with your bare feet...then your dog will be burning the pads on its paws. Of course now, the big thing is to put a cookie sheet with cookie dough on your dashboard while the car is parked in the sun…yes, it will bake them.

July is the national month for a lot of things; a few of my favorites are...Air-Conditioning Appreciation Days, Bereaved Parents Month, Bioterrorism/Disaster Education and Awareness Month, Cell Phone Courtesy Month, Family Reunion Month, Hemochromatosis Screening Awareness Month, Herbal/Prescription Awareness Month, International Blondie and Deborah Harry Month, Doghouse Repairs Month, Make a Difference to Children Month, Pickle Month, Share A Sunset With Your Lover Month, Wheelchair Beautification Month, Smart Irrigation Month, Social Wellness Month, Tour de France Month, National Anti-Boredom Month, Unlucky Month for weddings, National Hot Dog Month, National Ice Cream Month, and Women's Motorcycle Month.

The second week in July is Nude Recreation Week!

July 1st is International Joke Day. The 2nd is I Forgot Day and World UFO Day. The 3rd is Build A Scarecrow Day, Compliment Your Mirror Day, Disobedience Day, and Stay out of the Sun Day (good advice.) The Fourth, of course, is Independence Day (U.S.), but it is also National Country Music Day, and Sidewalk Egg Frying Day- Hmmmm, I wonder why!?! The 6th is International Kissing Day and National Fried Chicken Day. The 7th is Chocolate Day, and the 8th is Video Games Day. The 9th is National Sugar Cookie Day, and the 10th is Teddy Bear Picnic Day. The 11th is Cheer up the Lonely Day. The 13th is Barbershop Music Appreciation Day, Embrace Your Geekness Day, and Fool's Paradise Day. The 14th is Bastille Day, Pandemonium Day, and (a personal favorite,) National Nude Day. The 15th is Cow Appreciation Day- Go out and give a cow a hug, and the 17th is National Ice Cream Day, Peach Ice Cream Day, and Yellow Pig Day. The 20th is National Lollipop Day, Moon Day, and Ugly Truck Day- it's a "guy" thing. The 21st is National Junk Food Day; the 22nd Hammock Day; and 23rd National Hot Dog Day and Vanilla Ice Cream Day; and the 24th is Amelia Earhart Day. The 25th is Threading the Needle Day; the 26th All or Nothing Day; the 27th Take Your Pants for a Walk Day; and the 28th is National Milk Chocolate Day. The 30th is National Cheesecake Day, Father-in-Law Day, and International Day of Friendship; and finally, the 31st is Mutt's Day and System Administrator Appreciation Day.

With that out of the way, let's talk about fun stuff...the first week of July is packed with stuff, but will be dominated by two events; the Fourth of July, and the UFC Fight week.

Our Independence Day is bigger and better here than just about anywhere else in the country. The entire valley is going to part of this celebration. Over a quarter of a million people are expected to be visiting here on the fourth, and if you are anywhere near, or in view of, the Strip you are in for an amazing fireworks display. There are events planned all over the city, and it will be almost impossible to miss. I would suggest seeking high ground...and watching the multiple displays that go out across the city.

The purchase of the "safe and sane" fireworks are legal in Clark County, the local fire departments are hoping that few indulge themselves. After having a long bout of no rain and hot weather, the fire alerts are on an all time high---there is a lot of fuel out there. Wildfires are the plague the southwest and no one wants the situation to be worsened by additional fires caused by fireworks. "Unsafe and Insane" fireworks are available outside of the county, and are supposed to be illegal in Clark County, but they are seen going off all over the city. The Fourth is the only holiday that makes me nervous...there are just too many accidents. Do everyone and yourself a favor---watch one of the planned displays.

The UFC International Fight Week will return to Las Vegas July 8-10, 2016 being held at the Las Vegas Convention Center. For the first time in UFC history, UFC Fan Expo has expanded to three days to offer fight fans unparalleled access to UFC champions, top-ranked contenders, UFC Hall of Famers, celebrities, legendary fighters and Octagon Girls®, while offering numerous interactive and immersive activations. UFC Fan Expo will take place from Friday, July 8 – Sunday, July 10. With more than 600,000 square feet, fans will have the unique opportunity to engage with a record-number of athletes during autograph and photo sessions or participate in activities conducted by UFC partners including: Reebok, EA Sports, Bud Light, Harley-Davidson®, Toyo Tires®, Monster Energy and UFC GYM®. UFC Fan Expo will also include amateur martial arts tournaments from various disciplines, providing hours of amateur competition featuring athletes from around the world. The celebration will culminate with a weekend of action-packed fights, including UFC 200 on July 9th.

Criss Angel closed his show “Believe” in April, and recently opened his show, “Mindfreak Live!” Cirque du Soleil will continue as producer. There is still 2 and a half years remaining on his original 10-year contract with Cirque.

David Saxe Productions is excited to announce "VEGAS! The Show," its flagship production in the Saxe Theater at Planet Hollywood, has reached its six year milestone. The show opened to rave reviews on June 26, 2010. Over the years, fans have been thrilled that there is finally a show in Las Vegas about Las Vegas. Guests can enjoy their favorite iconic songs from beloved artists who put Las Vegas on the map including The Rat Pack, Wayne Newton, Elvis Presley, Tom Jones and Sonny & Cher. Add the most beautiful showgirls and dancers in town and you get everything you would expect from a Las Vegas music and dance spectacular.

From Jackie Brett’s, Vegas View… Cindy Williams, best known for her role as Shirley Feeney in the comedy series “Laverne & Shirley,” will join “Menopause The Musical®” at Harrah’s as a guest star this summer from July 7-Aug. 28. The longest-running scripted musical in Las Vegas history has played 4,200 performances and just celebrated 10 years here. While Williams is making her Las Vegas debut, this run marks the third time she will perform in “Menopause The Musical®,” having previously appeared in the Tampa, Fla., and Laguna Beach, Calif., productions. The actress will play the role of the fifth girlfriend, joining current cast members. After each performance, Williams will greet fans and sign copies of her memoir, “Shirley, I Jest!”

Also from Jackie… Magician Tommy Wind, the 26-year-old with his own namesake theatre on the Strip, has won the coveted Merlin Award for “Best Family Friendly Magic Show in the World.” Tony Hassini, president and founder of the International Magicians Society, presented the award to Wind, who has been a regular on the “Masters of Illusion” TV series on the CW network.

As part of Caesars Palace’s 50th Anniversary “Summer of Caesars” celebration, the iconic property pays homage to its colorful history of hosting amazing daredevil action with a night jump by the Red Bull Air Force skydiving team in front of the famed resort. The daring stunt is set to take place on Sunday, July 3 at 9 p.m. during the free Independence Day Weekend Block Party and will be followed by a colossal 13 ½ minute fireworks extravaganza set directly above the hotel’s newly-reimagined Julius Tower (weather permitting). Kicking things off at the stage built over the iconic fountains at Caesars Palace at 8 pm will be a roster of live entertainment including beloved winner of ‘American Idol” season five, Taylor Hicks, cast members from Absinthe and the UNLV “Star of Nevada” Marching Band. Caesars Palace has a rich history of hosting suspenseful, daredevil action that dates back to 1967 when Evel Knievel attempted to jump the resort’s towering row of fountains on his famous red, white and blue motorcycle - a feat that was successfully completed years later by his son Robbie Knievel in front of a national television audience in 1989. Robbie Knievel was the first to clear the fountains and will be on hand July 3 to witness the latest thrilling stunt at Caesars Palace.

For the 26th year in a row, Laughlin’s annual Independence Day celebration, Rockets over the River, will light-up the sky with patriotic flare over the Colorado River. At dusk, the burst of colorful fireworks will light up the sky, with the vibrancy reflecting off of the river water.

For the best view of all of the pyrotechnic beauty, attendees can take a walk along the Laughlin Riverwalk with friends and family or relax near the riverside properties. The fireworks will coincide with patriotic music for a true all-American experience. The fireworks display is free and open to the public.

This Fourth of July weekend, SLS Las Vegas invites holiday-goers to kick the celebration into high gear with a mix of top-notch talent at The Sayers Club, Foxtail Pool and Foxtail Nightclub. As part of SLS’ Neon Cowboy Country Series, The Cadillac Three will take the stage at Foxtail Pool on Saturday, July 2 with Elvis Monroe.

The Las Vegas Firefighters Benefit Association (LVFBA), Vegas' premiere 501-C benefitting active and retired firefighters, is proud to announce that it will up the ante for its annual LVFBA No Limit Poker Tournament this year by opening the poker-for-a-cause event to the public and by hosting the event for the first time on the Las Vegas Strip at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. On Saturday, July 9th, the LVFBA will host fellow firefighters, neighbors, local celebrities and poker enthusiasts alike at its celebrated annual poker tournament, with proceeds benefitting active and retired firefighters.

Last year this original, one of a kind, show sold out all 3 nights at the  South Point during the July 4th weekend and this year hopefully history will repeat itself (It's been known to happen from time to time). AMERICAN TRILOGY is a Las Vegas produced show that brings together three of the greatest and most beloved entertainers of all time – ‘FRANK SINATRA’ (Gary Anthony),‘ELVIS PRESLEY' (Justin Shandor), and ‘NEIL DIAMOND' (Rob Garrett). The show is a scripted “What If” production that will both delight and enlighten the audience as they come to realize that, during their prolific, illustrious careers, not only did these gentlemen all cross paths, but actually connected and/or collaborated with each other. The audience will see the mutual respect and admiration the three had for one another and the love and gratitude they shared for their country. They personified the American Dream, becoming three of the biggest megastars of our time. In addition to performing solo segments backed by a live band, the show includes the ultimate trifecta as the stars unite for a moving, upbeat, patriotic finale to help bring in America's 240th birthday.

Chris Isaak’s upcoming tour in conjunction with his critically acclaimed new album, First Comes The Night, will include a performance at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Saturday, July 30 at 8 p.m.  Isaak, who has a reputation as a supreme showman and one of the funniest live performers today, is a non-stop touring Grammy nominated singer-songwriter, actor and talk show host.   With his stellar bandmates, Silvertone, Isaak’s haunting voice, fierce guitar, and glittered outfits, Isaak has entertained fans for decades.

Due to overwhelming demand, the critically-acclaimed show Mike Tyson UNDISPUTED TRUTH – Live On Stage, starring the legendary Mike Tyson, has been extended at MGM Grand Hotel & Casino. Following a knockout premiere in 2012, a record-breaking run on Broadway, a worldwide tour, an HBO special and a string of sold-out shows at MGM Grand in early 2016, the former Undisputed Heavyweight Champion of the world will return to the famed Las Vegas Strip for a limited run at Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club inside MGM Grand. Featuring riveting, never-heard-before stories from the champ’s tumultuous life and career, Mike Tyson UNDISPUTED TRUTH – Live On Stage steps back into the ring for select dates from Thursday, Sept. 8 through Sunday, Oct. 23 at 10 p.m.

Featuring thousands of beer pong enthusiasts from across the globe, more than $65,000 in prize money and the ultimate bragging rights of “World Beer Pong Champion” up for grabs, the 11th Annual World Series of Beer Pong  will return to Las Vegas this summer. The World Series of Beer Pong will take place on Wednesday, July 6, 2016 through Sunday, July 10, 2016. Tournament play at the 11th Annual World Series of Beer Pong follows the official WSOBP rules, but in short, the game is one of skillful hand-eye coordination. During play, two-person teams stand at opposite ends of an eight-foot-long table, where ten 16-ounce cups, filled with water, are placed in bowling pin formation. Each team takes turns tossing beer pong balls (similar to table tennis balls) at their opponent’s cup formation. If the ball goes in a cup, that cup is removed from the game. The first team to eliminate all of its opponent’s cups wins.

Las Vegas is proud to welcome America’s first Mah Jongg World Championship this July. An ancient tile-based Chinese game, Mah Jongg requires players to use a high degree of skill and strategy, along with a little bit of luck, to prevail. Top Mah Jongg players from across the United States will gather at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino from Friday, July 22, 2016 through Sunday, July 24, 2016 to compete for the largest prize purse in American Mah Jongg history. According to the National Mah Jongg League, there are approximately 500,000 players in the United States. With the 2016 Mah Jongg World Championship taking place in Las Vegas, local tournaments and the Destination Mah Jongg events occurring throughout the country that number is likely to grow in the coming years.

The Beatles™ LOVE™ by Cirque du Soleil® at The Mirage Hotel & Casino, one of the most celebrated shows in the world, is evolving to deliver a more dynamic and engaging version of the musical experience that has already captured the hearts of music and theater fans worldwide. Tickets are on sale now for LOVE’s special 10th anniversary celebration performance on Thursday, July 14th at 8pm.

From the signature sound of the band’s horns, their iconic vocals, and a few dozen of ever-classic hit songs, Chicago’s concerts are celebrations. 2016 will mark Chicago’s 49th consecutive year of touring, without missing a single concert date and one of those stops includes The Pearl inside Palms Casino Resort on July 9, 2016 at 8 p.m. Hailed as one of the “most important bands in music since the dawn of the rock and roll era” by former President Bill Clinton, the legendary rock and roll band with horns, Chicago, came in at No. 9, the highest charting American band in Billboard Magazine’s recent Hot 200 All-Time Top Artists. And Chicago is the first American rock band to chart Top 40 albums in six consecutive decades.

Pre-sale tickets are now available for chart-topping rock band Barenaked Ladies’ “Last Summer on Earth” tour at Downtown Las Vegas Events Center (DLVEC) on Friday, July 22. The Canadian group has also announced that special guests OMD and Howard Jones will join them for this wild night in Downtown Las Vegas. The “Last Summer on Earth” tour coincides with the band’s upcoming album BNL Rocks Red Rocks, a live recording from their 2015 show at the Red Rocks Amphitheater. The album will feature some of their biggest hits including “One Week,” “Pinch Me” and “Brian Wilson” along with appearances from musician Colin Hay and Blaise Garza of Violent Femmes.

Innovators, renegades, villains, mothers, influencers and music superstars, Dixie Chicks, announced a return to touring with their upcoming DCX MMXVI World Tour. The multiple Grammy Award®–winning and multi-platinum selling band will make a stop in Las Vegas on their highly anticipated North American tour, produced by Live Nation, for one night only at the new LAS VEGAS ARENA  Saturday, July 16, 2016. Since their first album, the music of the Dixie Chicks have stirred emotions in fans across the world making them one of the biggest and most influential bands of our time. Not just "big for a country band" or "big for a female band," the Dixie Chicks are a multi-platinum selling act in North America, Europe and Australia.  They are one of a mere handful of acts with multiple albums achieving "diamond" status (meaning sales over 10 million copies) - both WIDE OPEN SPACES (1998) and FLY (1999) hit that stratospheric landmark - and over the years have sold over 30 million albums worldwide and won 13 Grammy Awards. Their on-stage reputation has helped them sell over $100 million worth of concert tickets while outspoken songs like "Goodbye, Earl" and "Not Ready To Make Nice" made it clear that this power trio played by nobody's rules. The Dixie Chicks have grown from a band into a cultural force becoming the biggest selling female band of all-time in the U.S. 

Fueled By Ramen recording group Twenty One Pilots will return to the U.S. this summer for a massive headline tour. The “EMØTIØNAL RØADSHØW” tour will see the band bring their explosive live show to The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas on Friday, July 15, 2016 at 7 p.m. The summer-long trek includes the chart topping duo’s biggest headlining shows in North America to date. 

It's so hot, from around Vegas:

It’s so hot you learn that a seat belt makes a pretty good branding iron.
It’s so hot that now hot water comes out of both taps.
Satan called, He wants his weather back.

There is a lot of great entertainment this month...
