From The 'That Didn't Take Long' Department: Menopause To Return To Strip

Where: 3475 Las Vegas Blvd. South [map], 89109

Just when you think the hot flashes have ended and menopause is over, it pops right back up again. We’re talking about Menopause The Musical, of course, and fans will likely be happier to hear of the show’s return than they would be the actual condition.

After closing up shop Sunday at Luxor, Menopause will reopen soon at The Improv at Harrah’s. Preview performances kick off February 3 and a grand opening is scheduled for February 20. The same cast from the Luxor version of the production will appear in the new Harrah’s production. The updated version will feature an expanded stage, upgraded sound and lighting plus a new set and costumes. Despite the new venue being more “intimate” (read: smaller), it sounds like this will actually be an upgrade for the show that’s nearing a decade in Las Vegas.

At Tropicana, 'Illusions' Is Bigger And Better

He’s dark, mysterious and speaks in a distinct accent. Known for Goth eye makeup, wild hairstyles, frequent shirtlessness and making things (and himself) disappear, he surrounds himself with sexy dancers and often performs on TV. His magic show at the south end of the Strip is pretty terrific (so you know it's not performed at Luxor). He’s Jan Rouven, the handsome master illusionist from Germany. And, his New Illusions show at Tropicana is taking on Criss Angel head to head. Or, wand-to-wand, if you will.

Rainforest Cafe Leaving MGM Grand, Headed To Harmon Corner

Where: 89109

A grand rumor three years in the making will be realized this summer.

Back in December 2011, we reported on chatter that Rainforest Cafe would be leaving MGM Grand. It took a while, but will finally happen when the restaurant moves to Harmon Corner sometime this summer. Two different employees have confirmed the restaurant's departure to us over the phone and stated that, while an exact move timeline is not yet known, they were expecting a smooth transition from one location to the other.

MJ Live, Rat Pack Is Back To Find New Home On Strip

They've become off-Strip mainstays, now two Vegas productions are trading one "R" named resort for another.

MJ Live and Rat Pack Is Back will see their final shows at the Rio on February 22. Word has it they're being booted for that Duck Dynasty musical. (Hoping you cringed when you read that as much as I did when I wrote it.) Both shows won't disappear from the entertainment landscape, though; a change of scenery will place them at the Riviera beginning March 2.

Raiding The Rock Vault Makes The Move To Tropicana

Where: 3801 Las Vegas Blvd. South [map], 89109
November 11, 2014 at 3:43 PM | by | Comments (3)

We’re happy to report that Raiding the Rock Vault hasn’t lost its luster after a trip to The Strip, moving from Westgate (formerly LVH) to Tropicana. What could easily be seen as a rocker retirement home is, instead, a fun and upbeat trip through the hits of the past few decades.

If you didn’t catch it in its last incarnation, Raiding the Rock Vault is a show featuring rock legends performing the hits of the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s. Buffered by a loose framework about rock fans and roadies, the show lets different rockers take the lead in the songs best suited to their voices.

Circus Circus To Eventually Offer RV Park Again

Where: 2880 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109

The RV park at Circus Circus has closed... but, not for good.

While KOA has motored to Sam's Town to take over the off-Strip property's campground, folks who love the open road won't have to travel that far afield forever. The Circusland RV Park was shuttered to make way for MGM Resort's City of Rock festival grounds, but we were surprised to learn that it will -- eventually -- reopen. Albeit, as a much smaller operation.

KOA Finds New Home At Sam's Town

At the end of its 35 year run at Circus Circus, KOA has good news to share. The campground chain will motor over to a new home at Sam's Town beginning October 1.

The Boulder Strip hotel-casino has had an RV park of its own, but will now lease it to Kampgrounds of America. The park will boast the new, search engine-friendly name of Las Vegas KOA at Sam's Town. The partnership brings KOA full circle in Vegas as its first location was on Boulder Highway back in the 70s. A press release details what lovers of the open road will find at its new locale:

Purple Reign Headed To Westgate

Where: 3000 Paradise Rd. [map], 89109

The next time we see Prince tribute band Purple Reign, we may slip a tracking device onto the group's lead performer, Jason Tenner.

The much-loved but constantly on the move lounge act will pop up at Westgate's Shimmer Cabaret beginning October 1, according to the Las Vegas Sun. This after just moving to the D in July. And, that after spending a few months at Planet Hollywood. And, if you're really a fan of the act, you may remember them at Boardwalk, Monte Carlo, House of Blues, South Point, Hard Rock, and Hooters, too. And, yes, we've left a few out.

We couldn't find any listing for the show on the Westgate website just yet so ticket prices are unknown.

Are The Wranglers Gone Forever?

May 21, 2014 at 4:05 PM | by | Comments (5)

After losing their home at Orleans Arena, the Wranglers teamed up with the Plaza to bring minor league hockey to Downtown Vegas. First, the plan was to erect a tent on the Plaza's pool level. That was soon scratched for a tent in the parking lot. Then, both sides apparently realized that neither had the funding to pull it off.
