The V Theater musical, which has been killing it (hee) on The Strip since July 2012, will offer a special, see-what-we-did-there $13 ticket price this Friday (and Saturday, too). General admission is normally $49.99.

Britney Spears officially arrived in Vegas tonight and was welcomed to her new home at Planet Hollywood with a 'blink and ya missed it' appearance. Where outrageous and traffic-stopping was expected, instead crowds received a brief performance by some Britney impersonators before the real deal arrived. But, seeing as how she likely has a lot of work, b*tch before her December 27 debut (oops, we did
see what we did it, again), we're sure her true fans understood the brevity of her ceremony.
When she did appear, Brit Brit greeted a swell of onlookers with this address:

Palazzo is hard at work on its new show, PANDA!
Set to premier December 16, we’ve been wondering just what to expect since it was announced last month, especially since the tagline -- it’s a rescue story, a dream story, a Chinese story, an American story, a story for the entire world -- left us puzzled. Yesterday, we learned a bit more as Venetian hosted a press conference and preview of the upcoming production.
PANDA! will play in The Palazzo Theater which will have plenty of room for all of the kung-fu, acrobatic-heavy antics. Our first look took place in The Venetian’s Sands Showroom, though. We were hoping for a glimpse of the new stage which is supposed to feature gigantic, moving LED panels that create an effect similar to that of navigating a real-life video game. Instead, we were treated to performances from dancers, as well as two of the costumed pandas.

The trio, comprised of Phantom of the Opera castmates from when it ran at Venetian, belt out everything from Broadway standards to originals. An almost year-long run at Plaza is coming to an end, however, it's not over 'til it's over. And, in this case, it's not over, at all. Phat Pack will take to the stage at Bally's beginning next month. Pretty awesome door/window if you ask us.

Cirque du Soleil suffered another serious mishap during a performance over the weekend. This time, theater-goers at Zarkana saw one of the performers in the "Wheel of Death" act slip and fall. According to Zarkana's Facebook update, the show was halted and the artist was transported to UMC where he was in stable condition. He was expected to be released from the hospital in the next few days.
For those unfamiliar, the Wheel of Death is a giant set of spinning wheels from which the performers jump off.. jump on.. and do other death-defying acts. The wheels are also featured in KA, and can make a nervous audience member very uncomfortable.

That's because PANDA!, a Far Eastern folklore show, will premier at the hotel in December. Here's what's in store from this Chinese-produced show (the first of its kind to take up a residency in Vegas):

Well, that didn’t last very long. Just a week after we brought you details on LVH’s The D*Word, the show went dark. Now, LVH is bringing in acts with broader appeals to sell seats in its Shimmer Showroom. First up is Mo5aic, an a cappella vocal group that is music to our ears.
Also new on the roster is clean comedian Carlos Oscar, a “comedy treasure” according to the legendary Bill Cosby. As we made our way towards the LVH showroom last Friday night, posters reminded us of Mr. Cosby’s opinion over and over again. Inside, we took note of the abundance of children and families in the audience and recalled that this is the same theater that was once home to Andrew Dice Clay.
Even as it attempts to move into the now with new rooms, new shows and new eats, Bally's still wants us to know that it can fling us back into the past. And, no, you don't have to travel through its
outdated retro non-working self-powered people mover to do so. Although, it would help.

At this point, sharing news of the pending closure of yet another Plaza production probably doesn't even rate a reaction.

Every decade has their share. Some, like The Beatles, inspire LOVE and a legacy. Others yield punchlines, or are forgotten altogether. (Let’s hear it for LFO - Lyte Funky Ones... anybody?) After the inevitable break-up comes the solo careers of varying success and, sometimes, a fun reunion with all (NSYNC) or most of the original remaining members (this summer's Monkees tour minus Davey Jones). The really lucky ones continue to re-invent themselves, building on their songbook with new material. Or, sometimes they just head off in an entirely new direction. Jeff Timmons of 98 Degrees has done all of the above. And, like the boy band he founded, Jeff still manages to keep temperatures rising.
