Everyone seems to adore Olivia Newton-John. Her image and personality are as treasured as the songs she’s shared. Through decades of stardom (and bouncing back from numerous personal tragedies), Olivia continues to hold a place in our hearts. That was clear on the opening night of her Summer Nights residency at Flamingo.

Olivia Newton-John has been eyeing the Donny and Marie Showroom for quite some time. A previously announced April 2013 opening date was postponed after another sad event in her life. But finally on April 8 last week, she triumphantly strolled onstage with elegance and a voice that has never been stronger. For anyone who’s ever enjoyed an Olivia Newton-John song, Summer Nights will be a perfect evening of entertainment.

The Soul Patrol will be moving on as Taylor Hicks finishes up his residency at Napoleon's inside Paris this April.

After a successful run at Bally’s, the American Idol champ moved next door to Paris where he has performed since the beginning of the year. Though his residency is ending, fans of the silver-haired crooner will soon have a new album to look forward.

Las Vegas holds a special spot in Hicks’ heart as it was here he first auditioned for American Idol, a move that helped bring him into the mainstream spotlight. As the first Idol winner to secure a Vegas residency, he brought an old-school Southern sound to Sin City.

Would you pay $54 (or more) to see The Jacksons in Vegas? If your initial response is no, VegasChatter member @paperposter may change your mind. Or, at the very least, get you to reconsider.

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.

Guns N' Roses not your thing? How about taking a chance on Olivia Newton-John at the Flamingo?

No Lies: Guns N' Roses Residency Returning This Spring

February 4, 2014 at 4:43 PM | by | Comments (2)

Back in December, Guns N' Roses fan site MyGnrForum reported on rumors that the band was planning a follow-up to their successful 2012 Vegas residency at the Hard Rock. A few days ago, the Guns N' Roses Facebook page started teasing confirmation of a Spring 2014 return via pics of poster and billboard announcements.

As instructed, we've texted 'GNR' to 97580, but haven't received any details yet on what the spring will bring. Unfortunately, that's all we gots for now. So, while we know where you are and sort of when, the how long and exactly has yet to be released to a jungle of fans.

Could This Rock Band Be The Next Big Name For The Axis?

January 24, 2014 at 3:05 PM | by | Comments (8)

This one isn't official yet but rumor has it the Axis theater at Planet Hollywood is adding another tool to their residency box soon.

Their first, Britney, of course (bitches), has been a love it or hate it affair. If true, the follow-up act can be filed under something completely different.

A reader tip claims the rock band Tool will play a mini-residency in March. The band, working on a new album, just announced a handful of 2014 tour dates that start in Spokane on March 4.

Would You Pay 54 Bucks (Or More) To See The Jacksons In Vegas?

January 9, 2014 at 5:56 PM | by | Comments (12)

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.

A Prissy Girl Reviews Britney

Where: 89109
January 2, 2014 at 7:27 PM | by | Comments (4)

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:

A Dude's Take on Britney

Where: 89109
January 2, 2014 at 7:27 PM | by | Comments (5)

This guy can sum up Britney Spears' "Piece of Me" residency at Planet Hollywood in two words: awesome and flawed.

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.

Jon Secada Wants A Vegas Showroom For 2014

Planet Hollywood’s newly renamed Axis Theater wants to redefine live entertainment for the younger generation (while leaving Caesars Palace and the Celine/Shania/Rod gang to the oldsters). But, what about those gradually graying showgoers who might fall between the cracks? Worry not, because early 90s sensation Jon Secada is determined to entertain you. If he finds a theater, that is.
