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

More than 50 years ago the Flamingo Las Vegas sat all alone in the desert on the road leading to Las Vegas. Today it's in the heart of all the action on the Las Vegas Strip. That's what we call planning ahead. And besides bragging rights, being the longest-running property in the heart of the Strip has other perks too. For example, awesome attractions have been built around the hotel. As a result of a recent remodeling project, the north entrance of the hotel is now connected to The LINQ Promenade. This retail, dining and entertainment district boasts the 550-foot observation wheel called the High Roller. And not only does the hotel and its surroundings attract an exciting crowd around the clock, when compared to many of the other hotels in the area, The Flamingo's rooms offer comfort and luxury at more affordable prices.The laid-back Flamingo invites all visitors and guests to relax island-style...the desert is kind of like an island, right? Sans the ocean and the coconuts, it's easy to feel like you're in a tropical oasis inside of the Miami-esque resort and here's a bonus...it's always five o'clock in the Maragritaville Casino for all of you who think that 10 a.m. is too early to start drinking. Inspired by singer Jimmy Buffett's island-escapism lyrics, the 15,000-square-foot casino located in the front end of the Flamingo features palm trees, tropical colors, bikini-clad cocktail waitresses, and the shack-style Margaritaville 5 O'Clock Somewhere Bar.Among the themed décor, a friendly poker room is tucked next to the lobby in addition to a race & sports book that makes sure all of the games are the center of attention so you don't miss a beat. Unless of course you become distracted by the sexy party pit on the gaming floor where a sexy pole dancer in a cage hovers above scantily-clad female dealers manning pink felt-covered blackjack tables located next to the open-air entrance near The Cromwell.Conveniently located just steps away from other popular hotels, The Flamingo's location acts like a central hub to partying. But for those resorts that are a bit too far to walk to, there's a Las Vegas Monorail station on the premises, so you'll have access to several other resorts along the Strip.If you're anything like us, you're either wishing you were gambling and drinking breezy booze beverages or eating...and both of those things can be done at the casino's multi-level Margaritaville restaurant, which boasts two patios overlooking the Strip, a huge retail store, and even a dance floor. Raucous sights and sounds are all around this eatery and not only is the place buzzing with Buffett's greatest island tunes, but there are waitresses who slide down from the top of the three-story Volcano Bar and land in a 300-gallon blender of margarita mix. No, you didn't skip a paragraph; you're still reading about Margaritaville, it's a land of its own!However, if you're not quite ready to "...waste away again in Margaritaville" or if you've simply given up looking for that damn salt shaker, there are plenty of other dining options for a relaxing, casual meal at the expansive food court. Or there is always Center Cut Steakhouse and Carlos'n Charlie's restaurant and bar where they are known for overflowing spirits, which often lead to impromptu dancing on the tables and chairs in the restaurant's expansive indoor dining room and an outdoor patio.Once you've eaten enough and properly prepared yourself for the night ahead, the party vibe can be found in the Flamingo Showroom. The musical, brother and sister duo Donny and Marie Osmond host an 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 the exhibit cases near the lobby). When Donny and Marie aren't in town, Olivia Newton-John headlines the showroom. You can also catch the celebrity impersonators of "Legends in Concert" in the afternoons so that in the late evening hours, you can stop by the sexy X Showroom, where men will get all hot and bothered by the beautiful dancers in "X Burlesque" while women can get hot and bothered too and/or they 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. The hotel's grounds are home to pink Chilean flamingos, wood ducks, koi, turtles and other fascinating creatures. While your wandering through the grounds, keep an eye out for a plaque dedicated to Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel, the mobster who helped launch the Flamingo in 1946. Also 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 the guest DJ gets the party started and keeps it going all day long for guests reveling in chaise lounges, daybeds and VIP cabanas.  Also outside are the enchanting garden and gazebo wedding chapels where you and your honey can tie the knot and start your happily ever after at the hotel's luxurious spa. With a full menu of delicious body treatments, The Spa offers a myriad of services for your pampering pleasure.
