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

Where: 89109
December 15, 2014 at 4:39 PM | by | Comments (5)

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)

Weíre happy to report that Raiding the Rock Vault hasnít 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 didnít catch it in its last incarnation, Raiding the Rock Vault is a show featuring rock legends performing the hits of the Ď60s, Ď70s and Ď80s. 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

Where: 5225 Boulder Highway [map], 89122

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.

Call A Buddy: Pawn Shop Live Is Picking Up, Erm, Shop

It aimed low and still missed the mark for us, but the Riviera apparently thinks there's a profit margin to explore.

After officially opening at the Golden Nugget on January 21, Pawn Shop Live! -- the Pawn Stars parody -- is already moving. Beginning April 21, the show will call the Riviera home with performers taking to the stage daily at 4:30 p.m. inside the Starlite Theatre (where illusionist Jan Rouven performs at night).

Big Things Are Happening For Binion's... Cafe

Where: 128 Fremont Street [map], 89101

Binion's isn't renovating its hotel rooms (yet?) but it is giving its cafe a big revamp that will include more square footage.

A renovation is underway that will double the cafe's size. The expanded space should debut around the first week of March, according to Binion's Facebook page. In the meantime, folks can now find cafe fare downstairs in Binion's old coffeeshop which has been closed since 2009. The downtown casino shuttered its 365-room hotel tower a year later.

The Phat Pack Trading Downtown For The Strip

Where: 3645 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109
November 12, 2013 at 4:04 PM | by | Comments (3)

With only two more shows at the Plaza, critic fave Phat Pack will live to harmonize again. But, this time they're trading downtown digs for a new Strip residency.

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.

Mob Attraction Closing at Trop, 'Moving'

Where: 3801 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109
October 1, 2013 at 5:05 PM | by | Comments (2)

In a mobster turf war, downtown's Mob Museum won our vote over the Strip's Mob Attraction. Although, truth be told, we enjoyed both. But, we probably weren't the only ones to continue wondering if two mob attractions, umm.. experiences.. (ok, we can't win this one) could really exist in the same town.

Well, the time has come for a possible answer. Tropicana's Mob Attraction has announced it will close on November 3. But, it's promising to live again. Somewhere else on The Strip. The news was met with mostly silence from its fan base. @MobAttractionLV on Twitter, followed by more than 16,000, only received one RT after sending out the announcement:
