Mach Shau! Mach Shau! We've been checking in on the Boulevard Theater. The really large, but largely hidden Strip production space behind Fatburger. The promised snazzy LED sign isn't yet up and former headliners Barbra and Frank: The Concert That Never Was, the Sinatra and Streisand tribute show, has come and gone leaving magician Tommy Wind as the only permanent resident. Until March.

“Stars In Concert” will become the venue's main attraction starting March 1. It's a celebrity singer impressionist show. Not exactly re-inventing the wheel. But, tribute artists will have two chances a night, at 8:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., to prove our current skepticism about the venture unfounded. Boulevard says the roster will include "Madonna, Cher, Joe Cocker, Freddie Mercury, Ray Charles, Elvis Presley, Tina Turner, Elton John, Aretha Franklin, Donna Summer, Prince, Tom Jones, Sting, Boy George, and many more."

Now, the producers are European so their very German website promotes their Robbie Williams performer at the top of their page. Yep, thought that might puzzle you. For the rest of us, it makes perfect sense. They have had great success intentionally in this genre and certainly know how to mount this sort of production. Here in Vegas we are promised "a 5-piece band, an entourage of dancers and captivating stage decor."

We always like to provide you with a visual guide so here's a preview of their Berlin production called, "The Vegas Show." Oh, now it makes sense. The Robbie Williams numbers at the top of the clip still won't. When we have ticket details, we'll let you know.

As we mentioned earlier, magician Tommy Wind is now up and running at 6.30 p.m. nightly, according to the ticket broker. We'd bet discount coupons will be available around town. And, if you'd like a preview, we have another one of those, too. Not too many magicians play multiple instruments on stage. Really, check it out:
