Chuck Rounds' Las Vegas Entertainment News

A monthly Las Vegas Entertainment Newsletter


May 2015

It’s time to break out the Maypole and greenery and dance. May 1st is of course May Day (initially started as another pagan spring festival pre-dating Christianity.) Dancing around a pole might sound like a Vegas tradition, but there really aren’t a lot of maypole dancers out there. In the late 19th Century, May Day was chosen as the date for International Workers' Day by the Socialists and Communists of the Second International to commemorate the Haymarket affair in Chicago. In those countries that celebrate International Workers' Day, the day may also be referred to as "May Day" but it is a different celebration from the traditional May Day…just thought you should know.

May is another one of those perfect months in Las Vegas. The weather is great. Entertainment is plentiful. School is almost out. The summer season is almost upon us, and the pool party schedule is active until September. There has been a lot of activity in the entertainment world with shows moving and opening. May has always been an instrumental month for shows…especially new ones. Shows have to get established in May if they are going to survive in the summer. If a show can survive the summer then they’ll usually do well in the busier fall season.

There are currently a lot of “big doings” occurring in Las Vegas…some of this has not been confirmed yet, and part of this will be speculation, but here it is…

When the Riviera closes on May 4th there will be several shows that will be displaced. Most notable is “Crazy Girls” which is the second longest running show in town. (28 years) I had stated last month that this show will certainly find a new home…and I just heard that producer Norbert Aleman purchased the Sin City showroom at Planet Hollywood…after a brief hiatus from the show and some renovations on the showroom, it should become the “Crazy Girls” Theater. Sin City Comedy will still perform a late night show there after the “Crazy Girls.” (And yes, the statue is going with them.)

Cirque du Soleil has just been sold to a private equity group with founder Guy Laliberté maintaining a stake in the business and also serving in an advisory position…but what does that mean for all of the shows here in town? Well, not all of the Cirque shows are making money…so when their contracts are complete, we may be seeing some of the Cirque shows closing down and more traditionally “Vegas” entertainment coming back. Certainly, “Mystere” will close at the end of its contract (since Cirque has an exclusive with MGM properties and “Mystere” plays at Treasure Island…a hotel and casino that was sold off to Phil Ruffin, and is therefore, no longer part of the MGM family.)

Caesars Entertainment has been having huge financial difficulties…the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in January, promising to cut the operating debt from $18.4 billion to $8.6 billion…no easy trick to cut out $10 billion. One of the ways in which to company has been trying to make some money back is to go to all of their vendors and re-assessing their operations (vendors would include all of the shows, restaurants, and merchandisers.) What I have heard from the shows is they are now being asked to pay double, triple, or even more in rent each month for the showrooms. I know that Penn & Teller have been hit hard with these new “assessments” (the more successful the show, the bigger the “assessment.”) They go on break for the summer to perform on Broadway, and when they get back, I will bet money that they will not be going to a Caesars property. I suspect that a lot of shows are looking to move away from Caesars Entertainment. Now the company has stated that they do not anticipate closing any of the 44 casinos, but I would speculate that some of the properties will be up for sale to private investors, and I think that more privately owned casinos would be good for Las Vegas…it’s just a bit more like the old days…

It’s that time of year again when I start bouncing between Dallas and Las Vegas. Dallas, of course, is where I work on the Dallas Christmas Parade for Children’s Medical Center. It feels a little odd to be planning a holiday parade now, but it is necessary and worth it…and in Vegas, of course, I maintain everything else.

Cinco de Mayo is a big celebration in Vegas. Every bar and club will have Cinco de Mayo celebrations…Save water, drink a margarita.


Remember that Mother's Day is on the 10th. If you're in town, there are several shows that will offer specials for you and your mother; every buffet and restaurant in the city is offering some sort of deal. Remember your Mother!


May 15th is the 110th Anniversary of the founding of the City of Las Vegas. No one really cares about this statistic. We had a great 100-year celebration, and we may have to wait for the 125 or 150-year mark to get the city to celebrate again.

Fremont Street Experience will host the 20th Annual Susan G. Komen of Southern Nevada Race for the Cure on Saturday, May 2 with registration starting at 8:15 a.m. Individuals can participate in a 5K (approximately 3.2 miles) or a 1-Mile Fun Walk. The Race will start at the intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard and Clark Avenue and will finish at the intersection of Fremont East and 6th Street.

The pop icon, Mariah Carey, arrived at Caesars Palace Monday night in a classic pink convertible behind 18 mobile billboards bearing the titles of her number one hits. The entrance was to celebrate her Las Vegas Strip debut that will bring her chart-topping hits to the Colosseum at Caesars Palace starting May 6th. The show is called: "Mariah #1 to Infinity." The Grammy winner is among the best-selling female solo artists of all time and joins the ranks of Celine Dion, Elton John, Rod Stewart and Shania Twain, who have all taken up residency at The Colosseum. Tickets for Carey's show are priced from $55 to $250.

The most provocative show on the Las Vegas Strip, X Burlesque, celebrates 13 years as the city’s hottest topless revue with the addition of sexy new dance numbers at Flamingo Las Vegas. A high-energy, racy performance, X Burlesque features a variety of jaw-dropping performances by a troupe of gorgeous dancers. The sensual show will celebrate 13 years in Las Vegas Thursday, May 7 at Flamingo Las Vegas. Several new dance numbers have also been added to the show in honor of the 13th anniversary, including a seductive feather fan number with Beyonce’s “Haunted,” an over-the-top chair number to Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk” and a sexy fashion show of stunningly-beautiful costumes dripping with diamonds to Rhianna’s “Diamonds." The show has also added projection mapping to the choreography, becoming the first topless revue in Las Vegas to do so.

Rick Michel will present his “Sinatra Forever” show focusing totally on the music of Frank Sinatra. Michel will salute and interpret “Ol’ Blue Eyes” standards with his 24-piece symphonic orchestra on Saturday, May 9 at the Cannery Hotel and Casino at 8:00 p.m. Michel, who has performed and headlined in Las Vegas since 1981 and been a Master Impressionist for more than 40 years, has been touring his “Sinatra Forever” show around the country as well as internationally with performances in Costa Rica, Canada, Mexico and Chile, just to name a few. More than half the members of his orchestra at the Cannery are musicians who have performed with Frank Sinatra. They will back Michel in his 24-song set that will cover all of Sinatra’s classic songs. Michel has been called “the closest sound to Sinatra we have ever heard” by “Variety.”

PUPPETRY OF THE PENIS, the internationally-acclaimed phenomenon that Vanity Fair called “Dementedly Good Fun!” revealed itself at The Jewel Box at 3275 South Industrial Road on Wednesday, April 15, 2015. PUPPETRY OF THE PENIS is the Ancient Australian Art of Genital Origami, featuring an astounding series of penis installations. Time Out New York called “Comedic Brilliance!” requires astonishing stamina, an unbelievable stretch factor and an amazing level of testicular fortitude. The show leaves women and men gasping with more than 40 heroic and hilarious installations, including crowd pleasers, tourist attractions and food products, such as “The Pelican,” “The Windsurfer,” “The Eiffel Tower,” “The Loch Ness Monster” and their signature creation, “The Hamburger.”

Helldorado Days, this May 14th - 17th, is an outdoor community event celebrating Las Vegas' tribute to the Wild West and produced by the Benevolent and Protective Order of the Elks Lodge No.1468. Helldorado Days which began in 1935, is the longest running civic event in the history of Las Vegas, originally created as a means to encourage tourism to the city upon completion of the Boulder Dam. With over 40,000 people in attendance, Helldorado Days offers a 4-day pro rodeo, a parade, carnival, treasure hunt for gold, whiskerino contest, golf tournament, poker tournament, art show and auction, trail ride, exhibits and food. For 4 days Downtown Las Vegas is transformed into Helldorado Days as the event takes over several vacant downtown blocks and builds a rodeo arena and carnival from the ground up. Helldorado Days is a non-profit community event. The members of Elks Lodge No. 1468 are committed to assisting children and veterans in need and have given back over $75,000 in 2009 and over $4 million to the community since 1935. This year, Helldorado will (again) be staged in a prime location next to the Smith Center in Las Vegas’ rejuvenated downtown. The new rodeo grounds, in the surrounding area of the North East corner of Symphony Park Ave and Grand Central Parkway, will provide a much larger area for staging, parking, livestock, stands, vendors and bands. Foot traffic also is suspected to be significantly higher due to the proximity of attractions like the Smith Center, Symphony Park, Discovery Children’s Museum and various eateries and shops - not to mention the fantastic visibility of the rodeo grounds from the freeway.
