The Hoover Dam is a wonder to behold.
PostedApril 8, 2014
The Hoover Dam is amazing. The size is awe-inspiring. Everyone should visit the Dam to see it for themselves in person. Seeing it on TV or in the movies does not do it justice.
The tour guide was a little overly chatty. We could have done with a few minutes of quiet now and then during the bus ride over and back. A lot of what she talked about was not relevant to the tour, just talking to keep us entertained.
Don't let that prevent you from considering this tour. I would do it again.

 Elton John: The Million Dollar Piano
Elton John: The Million Dollar Piano
The Rocket Man has returned. Singer, songwriter and musician Elton John is back at Caesars Palace for a three-year residency, his second as a Caesars headliner. "It's great to be back here at the Colosseum - it's a magic place," said Elton on the opening night of his new show. "When I was here last, Celine had one child and now she has three. Cher's daughter became a man, Rod Stewart is now Benico del Toro's father-in-law and I became a dad, which is probably the least likely of all those scenarios," he jokes, regarding the major changes that have happened to Caesars headliners since he completed a five-year stint at the Colosseum in 2009.Elton kicks off his new show, The Million Dollar Piano, with "The Bitch is Back," crowd pleaser "Bennie and the Jets" and what Elton calls one of his favorite songs, "Rocket Man."The focal point of the stage when Elton is singing is, of course, the piano and Elton introduces it as "the other star of my show."The show's namesake instrument, created by Elton and Yamaha, is an engineering marvel that took nearly four years to make and weighs 3,200 pounds.The piano features more than 68 LED video screens on the side of it, which create the perfect accompaniment to Elton's greatest hits, displaying imagery that complements the songs and sometimes mirroring what's being projected on the mammoth screen behind the Colosseum stage.Elton said he has five pianos all over the world with different names and this one is called Blossom after jazz singer and pianist Blossom Dearie. The piano is so high-tech that Elton jokes it has a microwave and an aquarium under its glass top. "The only thing it doesn't do is barbecue," he said.Besides the eye-catching piano, the rest of Elton's show is visually stunning as well. The set features large golden scrolls decorated with piano keys on either side of the stage, a huge golden dog standing guard on one side, large golden Roman-inspired columns and rocket ships flying through the air. The designer, Mark Fisher, is known for his design of Pink Floyd's "The Wall" and his work designing the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2008 Beijing Olympics.Although there's a lot to look at, the show is all about the Elton's award-winning music. He sings the big hits that everyone wants to hear including "Tiny Dancer," "I'm Still Standing" and "Levon." Elton is backed by a five-piece band, two cellists (who appear on several numbers) and four female background singers including Rose Stone from Sly and the Family Stone and her daughter, Lisa Stone.After playing several numbers with the band, there's a segment that Elton calls "the mini unplugged section of the show" where it's just him and his million dollar piano for songs like "Your Song" and "Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters."Elton dedicates the song "Blue Eyes" to his late friend Elizabeth Taylor as images of her float across the screen and the stage is bathed in a blue hue.The colors turn yellow for "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" while an animated trip through Elton's life flashes on the screen behind him."Philadelphia Freedom" is a high energy explosion of red, white and blue lights and stars and stripes on the screen behind Elton and the screens on the piano.The crowd gets involved on "Crocodile Rock" as live video of Elton singing is projected on the screens before the camera is turned on the audience to show video of them dancing and singing along.The production comes to a close with "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting" as Elton invites a few lucky audience members to gather on stage around the piano to dance and get an up-close look at his considerable piano playing talents.Elton's original show, The Red Piano, was originally booked for 75 shows over the course of a three-year run, but audience demand was so overwhelming the engagement was extended to 241 shows over a five-year period. Judging by audience reaction to the new show, he will be calling Las Vegas home for quite awhile.--By Kristine McKenzie

If you have the opportunity to see Elton John, take it!
PostedApril 8, 2014
The performance was absolutely great. You can't ask for more from an entertainer. The show has a good mix of his songs that will appeal to every Elton John fan out there. We could have sat through the show again, it's that good. Catch it while you can.

 Legends in Concert at Harrahs
Legends in Concert at Harrahs
A night to rememberStaff ReportWith more than 25 years of success on the Las Vegas Strip, Legends in Concert has become a mecca for tribute artists around the world. The show features only the creme de la creme of performers who pay tribute to the most iconic entertainers in the world.If you missed seeing the real Elvis when he was still alive or another favorite entertainer the last time they were in Vegas, Legends in Concert is the next best thing. Aside from the holiday show Legends in Concert has an alternating cast so you never know who you are going to see grace the stage next. On the night the show was attended, Jay Leno, Barry White, Dolly Parton, Madonna, The Temptations and Elvis performed. It's the only show where you can see a line up of some of the best talent in the world from both the individuals as impersonators and the characters that they become for the night.Jay Leno, played by Marcel Forestieri, is the show's emcee. He opens with a few jokes inspired by current events, much like the real Leno, before announcing the first performer, Barry White.Barry White, played by Jourdan Carroll, enters the stage singing "You're the First, the Last, My Everything." Carroll has an uncanny resemblance to the real White from his beard and smile to his velvety smooth, deep and soulful voice."Your sweetness is my weakness," says Carroll to the audience before performing his last song, "Can't Get Enough of Your Love, Babe."Along with Carroll, there are several dancers on stage who add to the show's signature of featuring only the crème de la crème. They accompany all of the entertainers in the show and do constant costume changes into different outfits themed by each performer and their songs.A spunky Dolly Parton, played by Sandy Anderson, is the next act. She displays all of the songstress's notable assets, from her big blonde hair to her red lips and of course, her voice.After her first song she walks out into the audience to have a little flirtatious fun with some of the male guests before singing, "Why'd You Come in Here Lookin' Like That." It is a fun, upbeat number with cowboy dancers in tight white jeans and cowboy hats, a sure hit for women in the audience."Like a Prayer," starts and Madonna, played by Coty Alexander, enters the stage wearing a black cloak, but it is not long before the cloak is removed to reveal the well- known cone bust ensemble and high blonde pony tail.For "Like A Virgin" she wears a white veil and brings a guy from the audience on stage. By the end of the song he is left with ruffled hair and needing to straighten and de-fog his glasses. A medley of Madonna's greatest hits follows where an ensemble of dancers joins her on stage for a high energy number where they really "strike a pose."The Temptations, played by Nathaniel Evans Radcliff, Talmadge Pearsall, Gregory Dean Lee, Ritchie Stanley and Reginald Reed, take the stage wearing sparkling purple suits and singing their greatest hits. They have rhythm and soul and the signature dance movements of the Temptations that they demonstrate in perfect sync with one another.As the hits keep coming, the audience becomes increasingly impassioned by the performers and before you know it everyone is singing along and dancing in their seats.Elvis Presley, played by Matt Lewis is the final act. He first comes out wearing an outfit that represents the entertainer earlier on in his career. Lewis' voice sounds so remarkably like the real Elvis that even the most devout fans could be fooled.For "A Little Less Converstion" he wears a black suit with a rhinestone trim that dazzles the audience along with his pelvis thrusting and smooth sounding voice.He stops singing for a moment to say, "Thank you, thank you very much." His speaking voice and mannerisms are everything you would expect from the real Elvis.Finally what everyone is waiting for, Lewis appears on stage wearing the iconic white and jewel-studded jumpsuit that the original performer sported when he first came to Vegas in 1969. More great Elvis hits are performed and Lewis really cuts loose, embracing all of the passion and vigor of the real performer."Viva Las Vegas," includes beautiful showgirls in dazzling white and silver costumes and a flashing neon Elvis sign. It is an exciting spectacular that is the epitome of everything Vegas.Legends in Concert is a fun opportunity to see legendary performers on stage again in their prime singing and dancing in the same way that first made you a fan.

I highly recommend this show!
PostedNovember 12, 2012
The performers in Legends in Concert should be stars in their own right. Their voices and performances were outstanding. Ths show is fun and highly entertaining. There was a very diverse mix of talent, all of which was superb. I look forward to another visit to Las Vegas to see it again.

is there a VIP package where you can meet the performer/s

I am seeking a VIP package for Elton John and or Penn & Teller (depending on cost I may have to choose 1 of them ) where you can meet the performer - Thanks
look forward to hearing back from someone soon

Amanda from Australia
I purchased my Elton John tickets through Vegas.com and did not see any VIP option. I imagine if there was one, they would have it.

I have not seen Penn & Teller so can't say what might be available for them.
