Beatles fans won't want to miss the chance to relive the days of Beatlemania at B - A Tribute to The Beatles. The performers impress even the most discerning fans with their dead-on impressions of the famous quartet in their show at the V Theater in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood.Let your mind drift back to 1964 when the Beatles made their U.S. television debut on "The Ed Sullivan Show." This is just one of the many iconic moments in Beatle history that you are transported to during the show."We have a live show tonight, but what I'd like to know right now is do we have a live audience?" exclaims an Ed Sullivan impersonator who acts as both your host and tour guide for the different eras of Beatles music visited in the show. He is met with an uproarious response from the audience in anticipation of the upcoming act.Next, the curtain rises, unveiling the clean cut, mop-topped quartet, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, singing "I Want to Hold Your Hand." People in the audience cheer and sing along to the well known tune.The performers play all of the songs live on the same brand of instruments and amps used by the Beatles, without tapes, sequences or backing tracks. Their remarkable attention to detail with every song makes it seem as though you were listening to an actual recording from the real band.As they perform "A Hard Day's Night," "Can't Buy Me Love" and more of the band's early hits, audience members dance in their seats to the familiar songs.For "Eight Days a Week" they get the audience involved by asking everyone to join in and clap during the chorus. Go-go dancers appear on both sides of the stage to add some extra pizzaz to their already outstanding performance of "I Saw Her Standing There."The curtain closes and Sullivan reappears dressed in an outfit more fitting of the changing times as the show shifts gears from the early to late '60s. He tells a few jokes and sets the tone for the next Beatles era .From "Day in the Life" to "Let It Be," Fab Four Live performs all of the Beatles' legendary songs while at the same time also re-creating the real band members' change in appearance as their music evolved.This time they reappear with longer hair, mustaches and wearing brightly colored military-style suites to perform "Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band." Their flawless re-creation of the signature outfits and the well known psychedelic rock songs brings everyone back to when that album was first released in 1967.Later in the show, Lennon, wearing an all-white suit, comes out and takes a seat at the white baby grand piano that has been rolled out on stage. Before singing his next song, he takes a moment to show his gratitude to the audience and explains his affinity for Beatles music, making it clear that although they sing their songs, his band never actually attempts to be the Beatles."Thank you for coming and celebrating the music and the message of the Beatles," says Lennon, now also acting as an impersonator paying tribute to one of his greatest idols. "I love this music, it makes all of us connected."In a few more simple words he pays tribute to his character, Lennon, and acknowledges his everlasting presence in the world today."An act of violence may have taken this man, but nothing would ever silence his voice," says Lennon before breaking into "Give Peace a Chance" and "Imagine."The band members reunite on stage for a few more memorable tunes before ending with "and in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make."Their electrifying performances remind everyone of the incredible power of song and how the Beatles not only created innovative music but started a cultural revolution."They're phenomenal guys," said Ralph McCormick, a guest in the audience from Charlotte, N.C. "It takes me back to the days when I used to listen to these guys. I can't put it into words, it was just phenomenal."--Staff report

For visitors wanting to be in the center of the magic and excitement on the Las Vegas Strip, the Flamingo is a wonderful option. It's located near the always busy Flamingo Road/Las Vegas Boulevard intersection. The north entrance of the resort is also connected to The Linq, a retail, dining and entertainment district that boasts a giant observation wheel called the High Roller. Plus, when compared to many of the elite hotels in the area, the rooms here offer comfort and luxury at more affordable prices.Situated in the heart of paradise, the laid-back Flamingo is also themed for paradise. In fact, it's always five o'clock in the Margaritaville Casino. Inspired by singer Jimmy Buffett's island-escapism lyrics, the resort constructed a 15,000-square-foot casino at the front of the property that opens right onto Las Vegas Boulevard. The décor features palm trees and tropical colors. Bikini-clad babes serve cocktails, while flair bartenders keep tabs on the shack-style 5 O'Clock Somewhere Bar.  Margaritaville Casino is complemented by the multilevel, Caribbean-themed Margaritaville restaurant, which boasts two patios overlooking the Strip and a huge retail store. Festival-like sights and sounds are all around. Parrot Heads can dine in a wooden boat or on its bow. Not only is the place buzzing with Buffett's hits, but there are stilt walkers who craft balloon hats and waitresses who slide down from the top of the three-story Volcano Bar and land in a 300-gallon blender of margarita mix.The party vibe can also be found in the Flamingo Showroom. The family musical duo Donny and Marie Osmond host a nightly extravaganza presenting their greatest hits. (Note: Fans can view costumes from their TV stints on "Dancing with the Stars" and Donny's mirrored disco ball trophy in exhibit cases near the lobby.) Olivia Newton-John is also appearing in "Summer Nights," a residency that runs on select dates until Jan. 3, 2015. You can catch the celebrity impersonators of "Legends in Concert" in the afternoons. In the late evening hours at the X Showroom, men will get all hot and bothered by the beautiful dancers in "X Burlesque" -- while women can learn the secrets to the cast's sexy moves at XBU - X Burlesque University.Another major attraction at the Flamingo is the Wildlife Habitat. Its impeccably manicured grounds are home to pink Chilean flamingos, wood ducks, koi, turtles and other fascinating creatures -- all of which coexist peacefully together. If you are captivated by the playful critters, you may want to have a meal -- breakfast, lunch, dinner or weekend brunch -- in the Paradise Garden Buffet, which overlooks the habitat.Amid the 15 acres of lush greenery lie the resort's spectacular pools. The main pools are interconnected and feature lagoon areas, a seasonal waterslide, a meandering river and cascading waterfalls. For a trendy dayclub experience, visitors will want to check out the Go Pool (open during summer only), where a DJ pumps up the volume for guests reveling in chaise lounges, daybeds and VIP cabanas.In the vicinity, near the enchanting garden and gazebo wedding chapels, a plaque marks the site of the original hotel (erected in 1946 and knocked down in 1993). It also pays tribute to the Flamingo's infamous founder, Bugsy Siegel. This resort is one of the few left in Las Vegas with links to the past. Be sure to behold its pulsating pink and orange neon façade, another rarity in this day and age.When you get hungry, you'll find plenty of places for a relaxing, casual meal -- from the Tropical Breeze Café to the food court. Hamada of Japan serves up an authentic Japanese dining experience, complete with teppan demonstration cooking and a sushi bar. Featuring a black interior with pink accents, the Center Cut Steakhouse perfectly cooks organic steaks, Kobe burgers and rack of lamb. And Carlos'n Charlie's restaurant and bar is known for great food and overflowing spirits -- which often lead to impromptu dancing on the tables and chairs. The restaurant has an expansive indoor dining room and an outdoor patio.In contrast to the resort's easy-going vibe, the action in the casino is always fast-paced. You'll discover a party pit, with female dealers manning pink felt-covered blackjack tables, by the open-air entrance near Bill's Gamblin' Hall & Saloon. A sexy pole dancer entertains from a small cage suspended above the gaming floor. A friendly poker room is tucked next to the lobby, and the race & sports book makes sure all the games are right in your face.Named for the legendary mobster, players can grab a drink in the casino at Bugsy's Bar.There is a wide range of rooms available at the Flamingo. The Go rooms and the recently renovated FAB rooms both have stylish and funky interior design elements as well as flat-screen TVs and other modern amenities. Pets (dogs weighing less than 50 pounds) are welcome in the specially designated PetStay section of the hotel, which contains a dog relief area.Pamper yourself at The Spa. Or if you'd prefer to get out and about, transportation is easy. There's a Las Vegas Monorail station on the premises, so you'll have access to several other resorts along the Strip.-- By Renée LiButti
