A regular showgoer, @paperposter reports he had the pleasure of attending opening night for Vegas' newest residency. He sat amongst a star-studded crowd that included Eddie Murphy, Joey Fatone and Joe and Katherine Jackson.

Las Vegas will soon have two new ways to entertain you, plus new chances to see a cult fave.
At Harrah's, Jason Alexander will take the stage as part of a four-week weekend residency beginning April 11. The actor best known as George Costanza on Seinfeld, will perform his one-man show, An Evening With Jason Alexander And His Hair, on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays through the limited engagement.

It seemed fitting that right before America’s favorite show, The Walking Dead, returned to living rooms across the country, we would get an invite to check out Zombie Burlesque in the V Theater inside Miracle Mile at Planet Hollywood.
Zombie fever has swept into Vegas in the last couple years. We have a Zombie Run, a Zombie Apocalypse store, a non-profit Zombie Squad branch, and you can even shoot zombie targets at The Gun Store. It was only a matter of time before someone put together a zombie show. This writer was not surprised that the man behind this show is David Saxe. Saxe is one of the city's most prolific producers, having brought many well-known shows to the stage including Nathan Burton, Marc Savard, The V Variety show, Recycled Percussion, and Popovich Comedy Pet Theater.

A few weeks ago, we filled you in on a scoop that the group would be rockin' out in Britney's showroom this March, possibly as a mini-residency. Tool now lists a stop in Vegas on their website, however, it's only for one night -- March 15. We're still really pumped about even that, though. The band will swing by Vegas after playing Fresno the night before. They'll head to San Diego the night after. And, who knows, maybe they'll come back this way again.

With all the delays and sh*t that comes and goes or just shrinks it feels all warm and fuzzy to highlight a Vegas show that's doing well enough to add performances to its schedule. Even more so when it comes as a bit of a surprise.

There's a rockabilly barbershop in Vegas so why not a rockabilly pizza joint?

Planet Hollywood isn't quite done dishing out Meat Loaf just yet (we'll get at least one more serving when the icon returns for a new run beginning next month), but that isn't stopping the resort from joining the city's obsession with the King of Pop.

When a man in drag performs a better Britney Spears than Britney can, you know there's something wrong.
After seeing Spears' "Piece of Me" last week, this VC writer was impressed with everything about the show’s production, but found the iconic pop singer's performance a bit lackluster. The Britney I came to know and love did back flips in her music videos (which I learned all the choreography to). The Britney I idolized set the bar for controversial, coming of age performances on the MTV VMAs (sorry, Miley). The Britney I saw on E’s documentary was quirky, likeable and sweet. To be way harsh, these aspects of Britney were nowhere to be found in her Vegas show.
Here are some of the “Gimme More” and “Oops!” moments I observed:

Britney has been in the entertainment industry since 1992, but most of us didn’t know about her until the release of ...Baby One More Time in 1999. That album has since sold 12 million copies in America and 30 million worldwide. Britney's toured for many years since then, but she’s never been known for singing live. She protests that comment, but we all know what's up. Furthermore, with each tour, her limited dancing skills have diminished. That happens with age.
This writer first saw Britney Spears in 2004 on the Onyx Hotel tour. She lip-sync'd much of the show as she’s always done. Even five years into her career, fans knew that to expect her to sing every note would be ignorant. The Onyx Hotel concert was amazing. Production for the show made up for the lack of singing. My friends and I had a great time. Fast forward 10 years and "Piece of Me" is a lot of the same with more hits.

It's a question we're asked every December and, we get it, it's an important one -- where can we see fireworks on New Year's Eve? Just standing on The Strip is a good idea, but where is an important factor, especially with towering resorts all around.
This year, just like the past two, fireworks will launch from the rooftops of seven resorts: Stratosphere, Treasure Island, the Venetian, Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood, Aria, and MGM Grand. The entire production will last eight minutes and 23 seconds.

To many, it will be known as Britney's theater, for at least the next few years. But, for some (including us), it's hard not to think about it as the Aladdin's Theatre for the Performing Arts. This writer just referred to it that way only yesterday. It seems fitting then that, during a press event at Planet Hollywood today to announce the venue's new name and to show off its new look, executives began by noting the theater's storied history. One that's seen entertainers ranging from Neil Diamond to Justin Timberlake.
