If you're looking for a show that's a fusion of acrobatics, dance and visual effects, accompanied by a classic rock 'n' roll soundtrack, then all you need is LOVE.Show Director Dominic Champagne calls The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil a "rock 'n' roll poem." The show is a slightly psychedelic journey through the trends and politics of the '60s and most importantly, The Beatles' history, told through nearly 30 of the group's songs.LOVE started out as a collaboration between George Harrison and Cirque du Soleil's Guy LaLiberté. After Harrison's death, the remaining Beatles and the families of the late group members helped bring Harrison's vision to life, sharing their ideas about song selection and song order for the show.The music director for LOVE is none other than Sir George Martin, who is best known for his work producing The Beatles' music. Martin's son, Giles, is also a music director for the show.Although LOVE features some well-known Beatles songs, it is not meant to be a greatest hits show.The journey starts with the energetic "Get Back" at the scene of The Beatles' farewell concert and then flashes back to Liverpool during World War II when the band members were young children.No journey through the '60s would be complete without a trip through the era of Beatlemania. Acrobats and tumblers on trampolines perform, accompanied by "I Want to Hold Your Hand" and "Drive My Car.""Help" serves as the soundtrack for four extreme sports athletes who take the stage leaping 11 foot ramps on inline skates."Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" and "Octopus's Garden" are the perfect backdrops for Cirque's famous aerial ballet moves.The show even features a "jam session" created from authentic recordings of the four band members. All of the audio clips and music in the show are from actual recordings from The Beatles' Abbey Road studio.The show concludes with its namesake "All You Need is Love," as a montage of photos of The Beatles plays on huge screens, leaving the audience with a feeling of nostalgia for a bygone era.Besides The Beatles, the other star of the show is the 2,000-plus seat theater itself, which features 360-degree seating. There is not a bad seat in the house and the farthest is only 98 feet from the stage.The sound system is unlike any other - there are 6,341 speakers in the theater and patrons feel as though they are completely enveloped in sound. There are three speakers per seat -- two in each headrest and one in the seat in front of you.The theater also features a complex video system with 28 projectors and two 20-foot-high by 100-foot-wide screens, which contribute to the visual experience.LOVE is not a typical Cirque du Soleil show with high-flying trapeze artists, gymnasts and acrobats. Although there is some of that in the show, it is mainly a theatrical and dance-oriented show. The creators also wanted to bring a bit of the youth of today into the show, showcasing extreme sports, break dancing and street dancing.In the end, it's all about the music and if you're a fan of The Beatles, you'll have nothing but love for this show.-- By Kristine McKenzie

 RockTellz & CockTails presents Meat Loaf
RockTellz & CockTails presents Meat Loaf
One of rock 'n' roll's most gifted artists, Meat Loaf is once again offering fans of his music and acting a rare, stripped down deconstruction of his 47-year music, stage and film career.Best known for his powerful rock ballads "I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That)" and "Two Out of Three Ain't Bad," Meat Loaf captivates his audience with his engaging stage presence.    "I had so much fun doing the show in the fall, I couldn't wait to extend my time in Vegas when they asked me to," Meat said of SPI Entertainment, producer of the RockTellz & CockTails concert series. "For me, the show is more than just another concert because the RockTellz & CockTails format allows me to add something different. I'm able to bring together music, acting and theater and do things you can't normally do when you're on the road.  I get to have a lot of fun and it definitely shows."With a live band, dancers and back-up singers, Meat and his iconic red scarf gives the audience a special treat when he takes their questions on his career. Using a tablet, he illustrates his life story with personal photos. A video montage highlights his film career.Performances include "I Would Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That), "Paradise by the Dashboard Light," "Dead Ringer for Love," "Bat Out of Hell" and "Hot Patootie Bless My Soul," which Meat performs in sync with a video of his character "Eddie" in the cult classic, "The Rocky Horror Picture Show."Meat Loaf first rose to fame in 1977 with the release of "Bat Out Of Hell," the first in an operatic album trilogy. His earliest memorable film role was in "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Since then, he has had roles in dozens of films and TV shows, including "Snitch," "Fight Club," "Monk," "Wayne's World" and "Tales from the Crypt."RockTellz & CockTails brings back the intimate, artist-centric shows that helped put the Las Vegas Strip on the map.

Meatloaf Made Me Cry....
PostedFebruary 16, 2014
Meatloaf What a great show.... He is so powerful and funny and entertaining. Myself at age 65 a year younger then Meatloaf was taken by his energy and power on stage. He puts everything into his singing, so much so where I would think that they may call peramedics before the show is over.. He sang all his hits, and with great video behind him. He sang two songs from Rocky Horror Picture Show , with a large group of girls dancing and doing the TimeWarp on stage... It blew me away bringing me back to my Old Rocky Horror picture Midnight Movie Show viewings.. That I realized tears were rolling down my face... For a guy this does not really happen very often.. Thank You Meat Loaf for a great show.

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

Great Location
PostedJanuary 26, 2014
I have been to a lot of hotels in Vegas, but for the price and location and being in the middle of the busy strip..I think The Flamingo Hotel is the best deal, location and action spot on the strip.

Sail away to the Caribbean in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. Treasure Island (also known by its hipper initials as "the TI") is something of a tropical island getaway -- and it's set along a beautiful manmade cove.You can celebrate the spirit of the high seas as well as the legacy of pirates here. The décor is reminiscent of the lively markets of colonial times. Instead of a snooze on a hammock, guests rest their weary heads on the resort's exclusive Elite Sensational pillow-top beds in the 2,885 rooms and suites, all are which are outfitted with modern-day amenities.Like the tropics, lazy days at Treasure Island are devoted to sun, swaying palm trees and island foods. Relax on the beach-like pool deck (complete with a 25-person hot tub!) and while away a few hours in Kahunaville Tropical Restaurant. You can have a bite of something exotic, like the Calypso calamari, or get an island-infused drink prepared by a flair bartender at the "Party Bar."The hub of the activity at the resort occurs near the entrance from Las Vegas Boulevard, where you will discover several rollicking bars, restaurants and shops. Things often get wild and crazy in Gilley's Saloon, Dance Hall & Bar-B-Q. There are multiple bars within a hangar-like atmosphere. Patrons can drink, watch bikini bull riding contests, dance and listen to live bands. The restaurant, which specializes in barbecue cooking, runs along the front of Treasure Island and sports glass windows looking onto the Strip.Infamous in Mexico for its party scene -- and now at Treasure Island -- is Señor Frog's. Along with great south-of-the-border food, it has a spring break-style vibe. Antics such as shots being poured into your mouth or dancing on tabletops are highly encouraged...but there's an outside balcony for those who just want to chill out, too..For more traditionally staged entertainment, get tickets to "Mystère" -- which is anything but traditional. This imaginative production is packed with over-the-top props and daring feats of human strength and agility. "Mystère" is the longest running permanent Cirque du Soleil show in Las Vegas.Several bars are spread throughout the premises including the upscale Breeze Bar and the outdoor Margarita Bar. Need a quick bite? Choose from a variety of fast-served favorites, such as slices of pizza at Pizzeria Francesco's, delicious hot dogs at Little Richie's Chicago-Style Beef and Dogs or pastries and coffee at Starbucks. The Coffee Shop and The Buffet at TI are two more wonderful options for speedy, cooked meals morning, noon or night.In addition, you can sit down to a fine, slower-paced meal at Phil's Italian Steakhouse. Fennel-crusted halibut, spinach and ricotta-stuffed free-range chicken breast  and other American fare with Italian twists are created in its Tuscan wood-fired kitchen.A sanctuary for the senses, Oleksandra Spa & Salon is a place that offers peace and profound relaxation. Perched on the third floor, the menu boasts an array of relaxing and revitalizing treatments from around the world, like Swedish, ayurvedic and Lomi Lomi massages.Interested in shopping? You'll find something for everyone -- from jewelry and souvenirs to perfume and apparel. Don't miss the unique items sold at the Couture, TI Bling Co. and Adixion stores. A pedestrian bridge leading to the Fashion Show mall, one of the city's most prestigious shopping venues, is also just steps away. Plus, construction has started on a new three-story, 40,000-square-foot retail center on the northeast corner of the property opposite the Fashion Show Mall. The new retail center is scheduled to open in fall 2014.Perfect for swashbucklers and buccaneers -- or anyone interested in a fun and affordable Vegas visit -- Treasure Island has so many entertainment, dining, shopping and gaming options, along with plush accommodations, you'll think it's all been pillaged and plundered!-- By Renée LiButti
