The D Las Vegas is located on Third Street between the Four Queens and Neonopolis. It's a hip, party-oriented resort – one that reflects the energetic vibe of the revitalized downtown area.Its 638 rooms and suites boast contemporary décor and furnishings, flat-screen televisions, iPod docking stations, pillow-top mattresses and more. High-speed wired and wireless internet access are available so you can stay connected to the world while traveling.The D Las Vegas is home to the Longbar. You can mingle and share in the excitement of downtown with other visitors at the longest bar in Nevada. This sleek spot has a color scheme of black combined with striking red high-top chairs. Fifteen huge flat-screen monitors have been mounted side-by-side down the length of the bar. There's another vibrant new bar outside on Fremont Street -- the D Bar. Flair bartenders serve an array of frozen drinks and specialty cocktails here. In addition, the Vue Bar on the property's second floor is the place to go for the best view of downtown's mesmerizing Viva Vision canopy.Eclectic entertainment is always on tap at the resort. You can get tickets to the interactive mystery dinner show "Marriage Can Be Murder" or the hilarious musical extravaganza led by Frankie Scinta. "Purple Reign, THE Prince Tribute Show" (closing Sept. 28, 2014) is a high-energy tribute performance that will take fans back to Prince at his prime. Comedy magician Adam London and "Ja-Makin'-Me Laugh," a ventriloquism act starring Matilda and Patrick Murray, appear in the afternoons. Featuring fine food and service, Joe Vicari's Andiamo Italian Steakhouse on the second floor of The D Las Vegas offers expertly prepared steaks and homemade pasta in an elegant setting. A true dining gem -- where you can indulge in a five-star meal without the five-star price tag -- all of the dishes here are prepared from scratch daily using only the freshest ingredients. Among the items not to miss are the Andiamo Grande Meatball, the 32-ounce Andiamo Tomahawk rib eyesteak, the Pappardelle with Veal Ragu and the Cioppino alla Calabrese. Plus, the cannoli is to die for! For a more casual meal, step into the D Grill, where breakfast, lunch and dinner are dished up in generous portions.

There's also a McDonald's on the premises. And The D Las Vegas has brought a Detroit hot dog legend to Sin City. American Coney Island now serves up Michigan's most famous Dearborn Sausage Company frankfurters -- complete with the secret recipe sauce!The casino at The D Las Vegas mixes modern and vintage atmospheres.

This show ROCKS !
PostedJune 7, 2013
I am a huge fan of rock music, from the 60's right up until today, when you can find new "good stuff".
This show was everything I read in reviews and more ! While the LVH theatre does not have a poor seat in the house, I chose to do the Meet and greet with a front row seat ! I am sure that added to the experience as well, it was worth every penny !!!
The guys were very gracious and took time to chat with you. They brought me right back to the 80's as a teen.
The music sound and quality was second to none, while it was perfectly loud, it wasn't overloud at all !
Tracii Guns is an under rated guitarist, in my books, he really puts his all into it. All the guys were great performers, really enjoy still doing this and didn't seemed belittled by performing in Vegas in a small venue.
I would recommend ANYONE that like rock to see it, its not just the music, but the extra story that makes it entertaining.
The crowd that night varied, but there were people in their twenties, up to people in their 80's, and that's what rock is about, its for everyone, like this show !
Thanks guys for an amazing "ROCKIN" evening of music !

What would a magician do when his act gets mixed reviews for having too much going on and too much filler?He'd make those parts disappear, of course.And in true magical fashion, he makes them re-appear as something much better.The recently revamped Criss Angel Believe from Cirque du Soleil brings out more of what Angel's fans have been clamoring for in the first place: magic.This production has seen some significant changes in response to feedback from guests and critics alike, and the end result is a highly focused and entertaining show.Criss Angel Believe takes his illusions and stage presence, combined with the flair and artistry Cirque is best known for -- with just enough of each to make fans of both happy.Although the magic acts in Criss Angel Believe form a loosely-connected narrative, this story is secondary to wowing the audience with illusions. From levitation to "how'd-he-do-it?" disappearances, Angel brings out all the acts he has made famous on "Mindfreak" and then some, along with some more traditional illusions with an added "Mindfreak" twist to them.From the theater itself to the set pieces used during Angel's performance, the whole atmosphere is dark with gothic accents, reminiscent of old-fashioned circuses and carnivals with a morbid twist.Angel's back-and-forth interaction with the audience throughout the show keeps things interesting, but his bumbling assistants -- four "ushers" named Maestro, Luigi, Slim and Lars --  ensure that the whole experience, from start to finish, inspires both awe and laughter. Expect lots of dark humor, as Angel has snappy commentary to accompany many of his illusions."You're applauding this woman being cut in half. Really, that's horrible. Just horrible," he says with a sarcastic grin, after a scaled-up take on the classic "saw a woman in half" trick. We've never thought about it like that, but Angel generally has an entirely different way of thinking about these illusions than your average magician does.If you've ever wanted to be a part of a larger-than-life, stage version of Angel's "Mindfreak" program -- this is the show to see.-- Staff report

Criss Angel show, minus the Cirq
PostedNovember 21, 2012
User submitted photo
I thought based on the title there would be more involvement with former Cirq performers. While I found the show highly entertaining, I was a bit misinformed , as I read it.

Music: Classic rockBest known songs: "Babe," "The Best of Times," "Mr. Roboto," "Show Me the Way," "Come Sail Away," Too Much Time on My Hands" and "Don’t Let It End."Albums include: "The Grand Illusion," "Pieces of Eight," "Cornerstone," "Paradise Theater" and "Kilroy Was Here."Awards: Styx has had four consecutive albums certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.Of Note: Styx has performed more live since 1999 than all the previous years of its career combined.Audience: Fans of progressive rockVenue: The PearlHistoric rock band Styx bring a unique concert experience to fans in Vegas by performing their two most legendary albums, "The Grand Illusion" and "Pieces of Eight," in their entirety. This is the first time this show will be performed west of the Mississippi and the only performance of 2013 to feature the entire albums.The group, consisting of Tommy Shaw, James "J.Y." Young, Lawrence Gowan, Todd Sucherman and Ricky Phillips (along with the occasional surprise appearance by original bassist Chuck Panozzo), has performed more live since 1999 than all of the previous years of the group's combined career.If you grew up in the '70s, you can probably name quite a few Styx songs. The band was one of the most popular in the United States during the '70s and early '80s.Styx started out as a successful band in the Midwest, but in late 1974, WLS-FM in Chicago began playing the song "Lady" from "Styx II." The song became a monster local hit and prompted other stations nationwide to begin playing the single, which brought the album to gold status.In 1977, the band released "The Grand Illusion," which featured a huge hit, "Come Sail Away," as well as another radio staple, "Fooling Yourself."One of the band's best-known and most memorable songs, "Babe," came from 1979's "Cornerstone."The band's hits kept coming during the '80s and Styx became one of the most popular live acts around. For instance, 1981's "Paradise Theatre" was yet another triple-platinum success, reaching No. 1 on the strength of Top 10 hits such as "Best of Times" and "Too Much Time on My Hands."Two years later Styx returned with "Kilroy Was Here," which featured the hits "Mr. Roboto" and "Don't Let It End."The band broke up in 1984 while many band members pursued successful solo careers. Styx re-formed in 1990 and released "Edge of the Century," which spawned a No. 3 hit, "Show Me the Way."Their upcoming shows in Vegas are a chance for fans to hear their most iconic albums and greatest hits performed live.

Styx and the Palms....

Styx is an amazing show of music and showmanship. They were having a really great time and the whole audience was into it and singing along.
The Palms was made for sound and we had great seats, but there really isn't a bad seat in the house !!
