So you're probably wondering...what does the "D" stand for?The resort's moniker, The D Las Vegas, pays tribute to its downtown location as well as to the Detroit roots of its owners, Derek (who is often called "D" by friends) and Greg Stevens. Among the things that make The D Las Vegas so cool is the way it melds the Motor City with Sin City.Although not specifically Detroit-themed, the Stevens brothers have persuaded a few Michigan-based businesses to set up shop at their resort. Take Joe Vicari's Andiamo Italian Steakhouse. This Detroit-area import is a true dining gem -- and you can indulge in a five-star meal here without the five-star price tag. All of the dishes are prepared from scratch daily. The Andiamo Grande Meatball and 32-ounce Andiamo Tomahawk ribeye steak are not to be missed, plus the cannoli is so good you'll leave the gun and take it.Known for serving hot dogs like no others you've had before, American Coney Island counts itself among the oldest businesses in Detroit -- and there's only one location outside of Michigan. Can you guess where that is? Positioned next to The D Las Vegas' east casino entrance on Fremont Street Experience, these specially seasoned wieners from The Dearborn Sausage Company are topped with a secret chili recipe that's three generations old.There are other nuances of Detroit at The D Las Vegas. Whenever the city's beloved teams -- the Tigers, Lions, Pistons and Red Wings -- play, you can expect to see the game broadcast at the Longbar, which is hailed as the longest watering hole in Nevada with 15 big flat-screen TVs lined up side by side. (And if any of those teams should make it to the championships, expect to find a party of epic proportions going on.)Actually the party spirit begins any time you approach The D Las Vegas. Outside on Fremont Street, you'll discover the modern-looking D Bar, where dancing girls in boots and fringed bikinis pour frozen alcohol-infused drinks into funny souvenir cups. Flair bartenders also flaunt their talents while mixing cocktails at the other end of the long counter.What else should you know about The D Las Vegas? Well, its showroom features some truly eclectic entertainment. Comedy magician Adam London appears in the afternoons. You can get tickets to the one-man comedy "Defending the Caveman" or the interactive mystery dinner show "Marriage Can Be Murder" in the evenings. The casino at The D Las Vegas mixes modern and vintage atmospheres. You'll hear dance-oriented music over the speaker system while playing the latest in slot machines and table games (some of which are manned by the sizzling "Dancing Dealers") on the first floor. On the second floor, it's a blast to the past. You'll discover discover classic coin-operated machines and the beloved Sigma Derby, an electronic horse racing game. The resort also houses a William Hill Sports Book.The D Las Vegas is located on Third Street between the Four Queens and Neonopolis. It's got a high-energy vibe -- one that reflects the energy of the revitalized downtown area. So we'd say the "D" really stands for "dynamic" or "dude, this is a fun and affordable place to stay."

We always stay on the strip but the D and downtown was great. Fremont St was perfect to walk down, friendly , safe, affordable tables to gamble. The new remodeled 'D' was great. We will stay there again. Heartattack Grille is a bit pricey but fun. We will be back

International songstress Celine Dion is back in Vegas and better than ever in her revamped residency at Caesars Palace. The five-time Grammy Award-winning artist is performing an upbeat and inspiring collection of her renowned hits as well as covers of other artist’s hits including Prince and Queen.With a five-piece horn section and a 16-piece string orchestra included among the 31 onstage, the singer nails every song in her reworked set list. With her new song selection and order, Celine achieves an overall upbeat and we-will-all-be-OK message throughout the show. Adding to her songs are special elements such as video montages of her children, magical lighting effects as well as an awe-striking water element that takes place during the ever-enchanting "My Heart Will Go On."A stunning light and video display acts as a backdrop for Dion. Ken Ehrlich, who also directs the Grammy Awards shows, designed the visual presentation exclusively for the 4,300-seat Colosseum. As Dion performs, moving stage pieces and a video and light display themed to each song create an amazing audio and visual experience. Similarly, expect to see dazzling set pieces like chandeliers, star-like lighting props and a grandiose stage filled with surprises.Serenading the audience with more than 20 songs, fans get to sing along to, become mesmerized by and even get a bit misty-eyed to Celine classics including "Because You Loved Me," "Beauty and the Beast" and "Incredible." Oh, she also sings some duets with Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley… and herself. Yep. You read that correctly. Watch out David Copperfield, Celine pulls off a seriously awesome magic trick by fooling the audience with some unexpected holographic action.And just as striking as her perfectly-tuned vocals is Celine’s enviable wardrobe. With several quick dress changes throughout the performance, Celine wows the audience in flowing ball gowns and sassy fringed numbers, strutting some never-before-seen looks in the most glamorous way possible. Her dresses and the way she rocks them are stunning times 10.Having changed her show just enough to be fresh and revamped since her year-long break, Celine offers attendees an evening filled with talent and passion for an entertainment spectacle you do not want to miss.

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.After all, we’ve all been there; lying around on a hazy gold afternoon, humming along to “I Want To Hold Your Hand,” “Hey Jude” or another Beatles classic that has made its way onto the soundtrack of our life… There is just no getting around the fact that The Beatles are a musical home base of sorts.Since their heyday, The Beatles have awakened the dormant minds of waiting generations with their collection of hits that venture far beyond the lyrics and deep into a well-lit (innuendo totally intended) world of musical surrealism. But while capturing the essence of The Beatles is comparable to capturing lightning in a mason jar, Cirque du Soleil has managed to, quite literally, bend the rules of reality and bring the mystical and slightly psychedelic story of the enchanting, four-man band and the time in which they lived to life.Show Director Dominic Champagne calls The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil a "rock 'n' roll poem." The show is a 90-minute 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” booms through the speakers to serve as the adrenaline-pumping soundtrack for four fuzzy rollerblade-clad daredevils. With stunts worthy of making Tony Hawk nervous, audience members are astounded by flips, spins and other tricks performed on this 11-foot-tall, center stage half pipe."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.

Great show if you love the Beatles
PostedMay 2, 2013
Similar to Cirque du Soleil Re've the cheap seats are up close which is great. Although the props and acts aren't as grand as KA's huge revolving wall or Re've water act the performance is well done capturing the spirit of the Beatles, great music.
