May 29, 2015 at 6:15 PM | by | ()

A lot of sh*t comes and goes in Las Vegas and some of it actually sticks.

Mariah Carey is Vegas' New 'Sweetheart' With Her Glitzy Debut at Caesars Palace

Where: 3570 S. Las Vegas Blvd [map], 89109
May 7, 2015 at 4:29 PM | by | ()

Miss Mariah Carey kicked off what will be a two-year residency (over 50 shows) last night at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace. Mariah #1 to Infinity includes all 18 of Carey’s number one hit singles in chronological order from 1990 to 2008, beginning with Vision of Love. She also debuted a new song Infinity, which she sang live for the first time.

Carey had six costume changes and one hair change during the almost two-hour performance. On-stage entrances included a pink 1950’s style car car for Dreamlover, and a jet ski for Honey (because, of course.) We didn’t attend the show last night (we will at a later date) but we do have spies all over town who attended. Word is she interacted with audience, made fun of herself, walked through the crowd, brought an audience member on stage, and was humble throughout the whole show.

Mark Your Calendars: Here's When The Las Vegas Arena Will Open

Where: 3770 Las Vegas Blvd. Las Vegas, Nevada [map], 89109
May 4, 2015 at 3:57 PM | by | ()

April 30, 2016. That's the new official opening date of The Las Vegas Arena (or according to the countdown clock on the Arena's website--361 days, 11 hours, and 50 minutes. MGM Resorts International and AEG broke ground almost exactly a year ago and they have hundreds of staff members working extra hard to meet the finish date deadline on time.

During a recent construction update, we were able to get a tour of the facilities (wearing hard hats, construction vests, and all. Serious stuff). The Las Vegas Arena is located behind New York New York and to the south of The Monte Carlo. But despite the heavy construction going on, the Arena is taking shape and looking good.

On The North Strip, Stage Almost Set For Rock In Rio Concert Event

Where: 89109
April 30, 2015 at 2:05 PM | by | ()

With the US debut of Rock in Rio just seven days away, the festival grounds where it will take place are almost done taking shape on the north Strip.

The two-weekend mega-concert event is set for May 8-9 and 15-16 on what, until recently, had been a long abandoned plot of land at Las Vegas Boulevard and Sahara, across from SLS. (Vegas geeks will remember when plans for the acreage once called for a mega-resort.) VegasChatter photographer Greg Clarke captured what the space looks like now. Gone are the tumbleweeds and in their place are stages, turf, a zip line, a DJ platform resembling a mechanical spider, an expansive VIP tent (capable of holding up to 4,000) and curving, white speaker towers. He did not, however, see the promised Ferris wheel, though. There's still some time, however, to erect that, too.

Shania cantered up by horse. Olivia Newton-John pulled up in a 1940s Ford Mercury Cadillac convertible from Grease. Now, another iconic singer has made a splashy Vegas debut for her residency.

Last night, Mariah Carey arrived at Caesars Palace one week ahead of her limited-engagement run in a pink (of course) 1936 Auburn Boattail (value: $131,500) to a sea of screaming fans.

Elvis Is Back In The Building At Westgate

Where: 3000 Paradise Rd. [map], 89109
April 27, 2015 at 3:16 PM | by | ()

Elvis is back in the building. That’s the slogan Westgate Las Vegas is going with, though, they seem to forgotten about headliner Trent Carlini who performed as Elvis for a long run before the new "Graceland Presents ELVIS: The Exhibition – The Show – The Experience." Their newest, multi-faceted Elvis extravaganza has gotten the stamp of approval from Graceland and both Priscilla and Lisa Marie Presley were on hand for opening night.

The full experience includes the new Elvis Presley’s Graceland wedding chapel (featuring wedding and vow renewal packages) and the first permanent Elvis exhibition outside of Graceland. More on the exhibition in a forthcoming post. The third part of the Elvis overload is a stage production show. On the 59th anniversary of Elvis’ first performance in the building, then the International, the new show kicked off.

Las Vegas shows its (hockey) colors: We may not officially have a NHL team, or a name for them yet. But, we do have their colors. Yahoo Sports dishes on the uniform palette.
