January 2017

And, the New Year is upon us… Yes. It’s a time to make resolutions and to be (indeed) resolved to do…something else; something different, something more, or something less (please let’s do something different this year.) Resolutions (for a lot of people) seem to be centered on getting rid of something in your life, and I have usually looked at it as wanting to add something to my life. I realized, however, that all resolutions are really about the same thing…working to be the best version of ourselves that we can be.

2017 is upon us…is this a good thing? Are we looking forward to it? I know that I’m glad that 2016 is over…WTF!? As I look back, I see a vast wasteland of scorched earth that used to be our own humanity and dignity. 2016 certainly brought out the worst of us. I didn’t realize that we were so xenophobic, homophobic, prejudice, misogynistic, bigoted…and well, ignorant. We threw aside dignity and integrity. We have had to re-evaluate our own principles. We became the lowest possible common denominator. We embraced false news and lies…even when we were told they were fake and made up…people still hung onto them as the truth. It was a divisive and angry year that created the Divided States of America. A country that now looks at compromise as a bad thing, a sign of weakness…even when everyone knows that real solutions usually lie somewhere between “I’m right and you’re wrong,” our representatives just don’t do it because it doesn’t serve their own selfish purposes. None of them seem to embrace working for the greater good anymore…just what serves their own needs.

I am an entertainment writer…why am I addressing national and global issues? It’s simple. It affects everything…even the shows and entertainment in Las Vegas. We will have a Labor Secretary that doesn’t believe in workers’ rights. We will have a Secretary of Education that doesn’t believe in public education. In a town that has a huge population of transient low end wage workers…it matters.

We lost so many great people this year…stars, notables, legends…gone. Debbie Reynolds hit me the hardest. I saw her on many occasions and even worked in her former casino. It’s time to watch, “Singing in the Rain.”

I want this year to be about building, making, and creating (this past year seems to only have been about tearing everything down.) I want to create art, draw something, build something, and write something. I want to surround myself with fans, and in turn, become a fan of something or someone. I want to pursue dreams. I want hope for the future.

Now…I’ve got to ask. What the hell happened to Vegas while I was gone? I am absolutely disgusted by the two major corporations that control most of the casinos in Vegas. It is becoming a generic resort town…no character, pay for parking, no new shows, nothing original. In my mind, I look at all the executives from both Harrah’s and MGM/Mirage as castrated eunuchs that just somnambulistically roam the hallways of their offices and only bow their heads and say, “yes, sir,” to whatever the accountants and bookkeepers say. THIS IS VEGAS!! This city was built on fantasies and dreams. It embraced the outrageous. We are Las Vegas!! We are not supposed to be any other town…but that’s what these gutless, spineless corporate executives are striving to make it. No one is trying to be different. All decisions are being based on what is happening in other cities…parking? …well, other cities are charging for it, I guess we should to… Entertainment? …well, this show did good somewhere else…I guess we should bring it here… Comps? …well, other cities make patrons work for their comps…I guess we should to… Hospitality seems to be a thing of the past…except if you pay for it. Vegas was a city of hospitality, of originality…we used to have character. We need to bring some of that back. We need to be different…especially since there are now casinos popping up across the country. We need to be different. Shame on the casino executives for trying to make Vegas…common.

There are those entertainment mavericks and practitioners out there that do make a difference. I still applaud them most enthusiastically. I want to see more of your work.

The CES convention will be the big news for January...it comes in the first part of the month (the 5th to the 8th). It is a huge time in the city, and the Adult Entertainment convention runs this month, too...always interesting to see...

CES is the world’s gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technologies. Held in Las Vegas every year, it has served as the proving ground for innovators and breakthrough technologies for more than 40 years—the global stage where next-generation innovations are introduced to the marketplace.

The AVN Adult Entertainment Expo is the chance for you to meet more than 500 hottest stars from the adult industry. With entertainment, autograph sessions and more, it's the only place to see your favorite performers and get up close and personal with them. It is January 18 -21 at the Hard Rock Hotel.

Powerhouse Broadway belter Niki Scalera celebrates the life and career of Dame Shirley Bassey with her one-woman cabaret concert, “Bassey and Me,” at The Smith Center’s elegant 240-seat Cabaret Jazz showroom on Saturday evening, Jan. 14, 7 p.m. and Sunday afternoon, Jan. 22, 2:30 p.m. A Broadway veteran, Scalera brings her unique perspective of the extraordinary life and career of British mega-star Bassey to The Smith Center just in time to celebrate Bassey’s 80th birthday. Las Vegas audiences will remember seeing Scalera in “We Will Rock You” at the Paris and as one of the featured vocalists with the Las Vegas Philharmonic. She appeared on Broadway in Disney’s “Tarzan.” Then, while starring on Broadway as Penny Pingleton in “Hairspray,” she began bringing her fascination with Bassey to the stage with a cabaret concert at New York’s Laurie Beechman Theatre. Returning to Las Vegas, Scalera teamed up with long-time friend and colleague, Keith Thompson, musical director of “Jersey Boys,” and co-founder and host of “The Composers Showcase,” and began developing the concert into a musical and theatrical tour-de-force that not only highlights the music and career of Bassey, but also showcases the spectacular vocal prowess of Scalera, one of Vegas’ most thrilling singers.

Chinese New Year is recognized as the most important Chinese holiday and is known as "Spring Festival" in China, “Tet New Year” in Vietnam and “Seol-lal” in Korea.

Continuing the Marvel experience, the retail store offers a Hulk-errific “green screen” photo experience where fans can have their photo taken in several different Avengers-themed photo settings and have the image made into a custom mug, t-shirt or other customizable item. The vast shopping hub is also home to Become Iron Man – an interactive experience that allows guests to channel their inner Tony Stark and try on Iron Man’s suit and take it for a spin via virtual reality.

The colossally clever Ralphie May is bringing “Ralphie May: No Apologies” to the Harrah’s Showroom at Harrah’s Las Vegas. With no subject off limits, this raw, edgy, and uncensored, late-night show will reveal the hilarious quirks that infiltrate politics, race and even his family, curated especially for Las Vegas audiences. “The show is a crazy, hilarious mix of stories and current events. Dirty, irreverent, loveable comedy like you’ve never seen,” said May. As lovable as he is outrageous, Ralphie May has become one of the most popular comedians in America. Since his debut on season one of “Last Comic Standing,” audiences can’t get enough of the larger than life comedian. May has starred in four record-breaking one-hour Comedy Central Specials, two Netflix Specials, and most recently he filmed an episode of INSIDE AMY SCHUMER. Ralphie has sold out countless tours across the country and traveled the world for the USO. He has a no nonsense point of view and the ability to connect with a diverse audience by pointing out society’s hypocrisies.

Together as a band for the first time, Chinese pop rock superstars Band of Brothers will celebrate Chinese New Year on the west coast and Lunar New Year on the east coast when they bring their spectacular production to the stages at Park Theater at Monte Carlo Resort and Casino in Las Vegas and The Theater at MGM National Harbor in Maryland. The Park Theater performance is scheduled for Sunday, Jan. 29 at 8 p.m. with The Theater at MGM National Harbor set for Thursday, Feb. 2 at 8 p.m. Band of Brothers is a Chinese pop rock band formed by veteran singers Richie Jen, Steve Wong, Edmond Leung and William So. Each member of the band has an extraordinary career spanning more than two decades and have collectively released more than 80 albums throughout their respective careers. The group name was selected as a representation of the qualities each of the band members possesses as a true man – career, personal life, and family life.

Monopoly isn’t the only place to find free parking! Bucking recent trends in Las Vegas, Hooters Casino Hotel Las Vegas is proud to offer free self and valet parking to all hotel guests and Las Vegas residents alike. Located steps from the famed Las Vegas Strip, Hooters Casino Hotel Las Vegas is home to the world’s busiest Hooters Restaurant, hundreds of newly-renovated suites and of course, the world-famous Hooters Girls. “Hooters Casino Hotel Las Vegas is dedicated to providing our guests, whether they be locals or from out of town, with the best overall Las Vegas experience possible,” said Hooters Casino Hotel Las Vegas General Manager, Michael Storm. “Free parking has been an institution in Las Vegas and one of the cornerstones of what has made this city so unique and appealing. We’re proud to continue to carry that torch.” Furthering the property’s commitment to providing guests with the best Las Vegas experience possible, all guests and Las Vegas residents who present a receipt from another Las Vegas Strip-located parking garage or post a photo of their car, parked in the Hooters lot, on Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #IParkedForFree, will receive a free beer at the Hooters Lobby Bar.

Pop superstar Rick Astley is returning to Las Vegas for a special performance at the Pearl Concert Theater on Saturday, January 21, 2017 at 8 p.m. With his rich, deep voice, Rick Astley became an overnight sensation in the late 1980s, with his well-crafted dance-pop. Astley was discovered by the producer Pete Waterman in 1985, while singing in the English soul band FBI. After that, Waterman's production team -- Stock, Aitken & Waterman -- took Astley under their wing, writing and producing such impeccably crafted pop singles as “Never Gonna Give You Up,” which peaked at number one in 25 countries, and “Together Forever.”

Trevor Noah, host of “The Daily Show,” will make his ‘Aces of Comedy’ debut at The Mirage Hotel & Casino January 20 – 21, 2017 at 10 p.m. Noah, who replaced Jon Stewart in September 2015 on the Comedy Central Show, will entertain audiences with his signature blend of global perspective and cool-guy comedy. Born in South Africa, Noah is quickly going from being the most successful comedian in Africa to being one of the most successful comedians in the world. Before joining “The Daily Show” as a contributor in 2014, Noah cemented himself as a force in South African entertainment. He hosted numerous television shows in his home country, including two seasons of his own late-night talk show “Tonight with Trevor Noah.” He made his U.S. television debut in 2012 on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” becoming the first South African stand-up comedian to appear on the program. Last year, Noah premiered his one-hour stand-up special, “Trevor: Lost in Translation,” to rave reviews.

Best known for his powerful guitar licks the legendary Joe Walsh maintains a legion of fans around the world with huge success over the past four decades as a bona fide solo artist, and as a member of the Eagles and James Gang. The multi-GRAMMY Award winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee hits include “Funk #49,” “Walk Away,” “Life’s Been Good,” “Rocky Mountain Way,” “Life in the Fast Lane” “In The City,” “Ordinary Average Guy” and “Analog Man,” just to name a few. On his most recent solo ‘Walsh Toor,’ Walsh has said his current band is “the best band I’ve played with in a long time” and he is clearly at the top of his game, his playing is transcendent and he is more comfortable than ever as a performer. Walsh’s shows spotlight songs from throughout his career and pack in his hits alongside fan favorites like “Turn To Stone,” “Mothers Says,” and “The Bomber.” A recent review in the Charleston Gazette Mail touted, “…what a privilege it is to see a rock and roll great like Joe Walsh in such an intimate setting….a well spent and memorable evening.” and Nepa Scene raved, “Joe Walsh jokes and shreds – there is always a good bit of comedy at a Joe Walsh concert but don’t let that fool you – when it comes to playing guitar, he’s dead serious and he’s a monster.” This will be a show Las Vegas fans won’t want to miss.

Friday, Jan. 27, JAY LENO
The Television Hall of Fame inductee Jay Leno will return to the Terry Fator Theatre for multiple performances in 2017.

The new Cirque du Soleil touring show inspired by James Cameron’s record-breaking movie AVATAR, TORUK – The First Flight, is coming to Las Vegas for a limited engagement. The show is presented at T-Mobile Arena for one week only, January 18 - 22 as part of a global tour in arenas around the world. Inspired by James Cameron’s AVATAR, TORUK – The First Flight transports you to the world of Pandora in a visually stunning live setting. Experience a storytelling odyssey through a new world of imagination, discovery and possibility.

Through a riveting fusion of cutting-edge visuals, puppetry and stagecraft buoyed by a soaring cinematic score, Cirque du Soleil applies its unique signature style to James Cameron’s imaginary world and “makes the bond” between two kindred artistic visions that capture the imagination. This live immersive experience also bears the distinct signature of directors and multimedia innovators Michel Lemieux and Victor Pilon. It is a living ode to the Na’vi’s symbiotic coexistence with nature and their belief in the basic interconnectedness of all living things. Narrated by a “Na’vi Storyteller” and populated by unforgettable characters, TORUK – The First Flight is a mythical tale set thousands of years before the events depicted in the film AVATAR, and before any humans ever set foot on Pandora. When a natural catastrophe threatens to destroy the sacred Tree of Souls, Ralu and Entu, two Omatikaya boys on the brink of adulthood, fearlessly decide to take matters into their own hands. Upon learning that Toruk can help them save the Tree of Souls, they set out, together with their newfound friend Tsyal, on a quest high up in the Floating Mountains to find the mighty red and orange predator that rules the Pandoran sky. Prophecy is fulfilled when a pure soul rises among the clans to ride Toruk for the first time and save the Na’vi from a terrible fate.

Rock legends Styx with very special guest star Don Felder-formerly of the Eagles--will take the Las Vegas stage for an unforgettable five-night limited engagement at The Venetian Theatre inside The Venetian® Las Vegas. The show, "Styx & Don Felder: Renegades In The Fast Lane," will be held on January 6, 7, 11, 13 and 14, 2017. For these special performances, Styx--Tommy Shaw (vocals, guitars), James "JY" Young (vocals, guitars), Lawrence Gowan (vocals, keyboards), Todd Sucherman (drums) and Ricky Phillips (bass), along with the occasional surprise appearance by original bassist Chuck Panozzo-has created an exclusive set list and brand new stage production. Don Felder is also working on some exciting plans of his own for the residency. The multi-show run will pay tribute to both Styx and Don Felder's combined 45-plus years as one of the most successful rock and roll bands in history and one of rock's most illustrious guitar legends.

British R&B icon and legendary composer, singer and performer Van Morrison will headline two nights at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on Friday, January 13 and Saturday, January 14. As a special offer for fans, a physical CD of Van Morrison’s upcoming album, Keep Me Singing, will be included with every ticket ordered. Information about CD redemption will be provided to ticketholders following purchase. Van Morrison grew up on his father’s collection of blues, country and gospel music early in life and by the age of 13 was working as a travelling musician playing guitar and saxophone in several bands. In 1964, he formed the group Them, which would go on to record the much-covered hits “Gloria” and “Here Comes the Night.” A few years later, he released the Top 40 pop sensation “Brown Eyed Girl” and began his career as a successful solo musician. He has since released over 30 albums and has created one of the most revered catalogues in music history, including singles “Moondance,” “Have I Told You Lately” and “Days Like This.” Morrison has continued to advance his status as a game changing artist with numerous awards and accolades, including a knighthood, honorary degrees from two prestigious universities, a Brit Award, an OBE (Order of the British Empire), six Grammys and entry into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame.

Remember, too, Elvis' Birthday is on January 8th. He would be 82!
