International songstress Celine Dion is back in Vegas and better than ever. In her new show at Caesars Palace, the Grammy Award-winning artist performs her repertoire of hits and a collection of songs from other artists including Billy Joel and Ella Fitzgerald.Dion performs with 31 musicians, consisting of orchestra and band, who are situated behind her on the stage for most of the show. There aren't any back-up dancers. Instead the show puts the focus on Dion and her incredible voice. It also gives Dion the opportunity to take a break from singing to talk to her audience. After her first song, Dion takes a moment to express her gratitude for being able to return to the same showroom she called home from 2003 to 2007 with her previous show "A New Day."A video montage played before the show starts lets the audience in on what Dion has been doing since 2007. There are shots from her Taking Chances Tour, launched in 2008, which visited five continents, 25 countries and played to more than 3 million people. The montage also features video footage of her family including her son Rene-Charles Angelil and twins Eddy and Nelson. Returning to Caesars Palace and performing as a resident headliner in Vegas is a personal experience that Dion shares with the audience. "On top of all this, I can still do what I love, sing for you," says Dion.Throughout the show she breaks from singing to speak to her fans, making her performance feel like an intimate experience despite the Colosseum being a 4,300-seat venue.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 Colosseum. As Dion performs, moving stage pieces and a video and light display themed to each song, create an amazing audio and visual experience.During her performances of fan favorites including "Where Does My Heart Beat Now," "Because You Loved Me" and "It's All Coming Back to Me Now," vintage clips of Dion, along with shots from the original music videos are played. Dressed in a sparkling gown, Dion evokes multiple standing ovations from the crowd before she's even half-way through the show.There's a brief interlude with a phenomenal violinist before Dion reappears on stage wearing a blue high-cut gown. This time she's with a three-piece band to perform Ella Fitzgerald's "(If You Can't Sing It) You'll Have to Swing It (Mr. Paganini)." Dion's take on the jazzy song isn't what people are used to hearing from the French-Canadian ballad singer, and that's a good thing. She's got the power and pizzazz to make any song her own, and she does.Some of the other songs in the show include Billy Joel's "Lullabye (Goodnight, My Angel)," Shirley Bassey's "Godlfinger" from the 1964 James Bond film, the Paul McCartney & Wings song "Live and Let Die" and Janis Ian's "At Seventeen."The show's audio and visual effects hit an innovative high note during "How Do You Keep the Music Playing?," a duet that Dion performs with a hologram of herself."Well, that was a pretty neat trick," says Dion.This same technique is used for "Overjoyed," a duet that Dion performs with Stevie Wonder.Later on in the show the music picks up where Dion's repertoire of hits left off with her performance of "Beauty and the Beast," "All By Myself" and the French song "Ne Me Quitte Pas."The show also includes a tribute to the late Michael Jackson. Dion explains how the king of pop helped influence her own career after seeing Jackson perform on television when she was 15 years old. While wearing a sparkling gold jacket reminiscent of Jackson, Dion performs "Ben" and "Man in the Mirror."There's no shortage of hits in this show. Fans will relish in hearing Dion's chart-topping anthems performed live. Even if you're not that familiar with her music, Dion's charisma and ability to conquer a dynamic mix of songs is sure to entertain all audiences.About DionDion grew up the youngest of 14 children in Quebec, Canada. During her childhood Dion sang with her siblings in her parents' small piano bar called Le Vieux Baril. When she was 12 she collaborated with her mother and brother Jacques to compose her first song, "Ce n'était qu'un rêve" ("It Was Only a Dream"). Her brother sent the song to music manager René Angélil.Impressed with the song, Angélil, Dion's future husband and manager, mortgaged his home to fund what would become Dion's first record, "La voix du bon Dieu" (a play on the words "The Voice of God/The Way of God"). Released in 1981, it became a local hit skyrocketing Dion to instant stardom in Quebec, Canada.In 1982 she competed in the Yamaha World Popular Song Festival in Tokyo where she won an award for "Top Performer" and "Best Song." The following years she continued to win awards increasing her popularity in Europe, Asia and Australia.Dion released her first album in the United States in 1991 called "Unison." The album was a hit within the adult contemporary radio format and featured the hit songs "(If There Was) Any Other Way," "The Last to Know," "Unison," and "Where Does My Heart Beat Now." The album's success established Dion as a rising star in the United States.Dion's album "The Colour of My Love," released in 1993 featured her first U.S., Canadian and Australian No. 1 single "The Power of Love." In 1996 the album "Falling Into You" solidified Dion's status as an international super star. The album featured a string of hits including "It's All Coming Back to Me Now," a re-make of Eric Carmen's "All By Myself" and "Because You Loved Me."Her next English album "Let's Talk About Love" released the following year featured the mega hit "My Heart Will Go On," a love ballad and the theme song for the blockbuster film "Titanic." "My Heart Will Go On" was an international phenomenon and won Dion multiple awards including two Grammy awards.In 2002, Dion released "A New Day has Come," featuring the songs "A New Day Has Come," "I'm Alive," and "Goodbye's (The Saddest Word)." It was followed in 2003 by the album "One Heart" and in 2004 with "Miracle."Between 2003 and 2007 Dion performed more than 700 shows as part of her concert series "A New Day..." at Caesars Palace. When the show ended on Dec. 15, 2007, more than 3 million fans had seen it.Dion's most recent English album, "Taking Chances," was released in November, 2007. She followed up with an international tour that visited five continents.Dion has continued to release chart-topping music around the world. In May 2009 she was named the second best-selling female artist of the decade in the United States selling more than 17 million albums.-- By Caroline Fontein

There is no way to select your seet till you pick up your ticket. My seat was terrible. I don't like paying upfront without a seat number.

Standing in the spotlight on a Las Vegas stage is second nature to Donny and Marie Osmond.The Osmond family has an extensive history with the city. Donny's first gig was at the Sahara hotel opening for Shirley Bassey performing with his brothers at the age of 7.It was at Caesars Palace during an Osmond show in 1973 that Donny and Marie sang together on stage for the first time, and throughout the '70s, members of the Osmond family played at practically every hotel in Las Vegas, including the Tropicana and the Las Vegas Hilton.In 2008, the duo opened their production at the Flamingo, aptly titled "Donny & Marie," and haven't looked back. The show is a family-friendly variety show that follows the winning formula of their 1970s TV program, incorporating dancing, humor and all of their hit songs -- both as individuals and as a duo.The show starts out with Donny & Marie singing a medley of "Get the Party Started," "Dancing in the Streets" and "Knock on Wood," accompanied by a group of talented back up dancers.They also sing a new song, "Vegas Love," from their latest album -- the first they have recorded together in 30 years.While they may be best known as a team, both Donny and Marie found significant success as solo artists as well and the show gives them each a chance to highlight their individual achievements.For Marie's turn in the spotlight, she sings her most well-known song, "Paper Roses," along with some of her other country favorites, accompanied by two guitar players.She also heats things up with a mash up of "Walk this Way" and "These Boots Were Made for Walking," accompanied by male dancers.Marie has a strong voice and shows her considerable range by belting out a flawless version of the operatic piece "Pie Jesu."As everyone knows, it's Donny who was always a little bit rock 'n' roll, and the show switches gears for his solo set.He appears out of fog on stage in to rock his 1989 comeback hit "Soldier of Love."Donny, a "Dancing with the Stars" winner, shows off some of his moves and some funky choreography on "Yo Yo" while footage of him and his brothers dancing during the '70s plays on a screen behind the stage.Even though Donny likes to rock, it was his love ballads that made him an official heartthrob and he doesn't disappoint the longtime fans, singing well-known hits like "Puppy Love," accompanied by footage of him during his teenage years."This is the part where all of the women would scream," says Donny in the middle of "Puppy Love," which of course, elicits screams from the female members of the audience. "I've still got it!" he proclaims.Donny and Marie reunite on stage toward the end of the show, singing some of their classic hits like "Make the World Go Away," "Morning Side of the Mountain" and "Deep Purple."The intimate 750-seat showroom at the Flamingo is a perfect fit for Donny and Marie, offering a good view from just about any seat and allowing the performers to walk out into the audience and get close to their fans. The classic Vegas-style room features booths and tables and contributes to the feeling of nostalgia the duo evokes with their show.The Osmonds have both starred on Broadway and they close the show with songs from "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat," "Wicked," "The Sound of Music" and more.Donny and Marie have been crowd pleasers in Vegas since childhood and judging by the fact that they're still consistently selling out shows, they'll continue to be welcome for a long time.Q&A with Donny OsmondDonny Osmond's life in the entertainment business began at the age of 5 when he first appeared on "The Andy Williams Show" with his brothers' singing group. During the 1970s, Donny stood out as the heartthrob of the bunch and he soon found himself in the center of "Osmondmania."His sister Marie joined him in the spotlight on "The Donny and Marie Show," a popular variety program that aired on ABC from 1976 to 1979. Donny (at age 18) and Marie (at age 16) made television history by becoming the youngest hosts of a weekly prime-time TV musical/variety show. When the show ended, they continued to perform together up until 1986 and they each went on to pursue solo careers. Donny and Marie reunited in 1998 to co-host "Donny & Marie," a talk show that ran for two seasons.Over the years, Donny has released 55 albums and has enjoyed a diverse career encompassing theater, television and the big screen. He has hosted the game show "Pyramid," he's a best-selling author (his autobiography debuted at No. 1 on the UK bestseller list) and an accomplished theater performer (over 2,000 performances starring in Andrew Lloyd Weber's "Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" and most recently on Broadway in Disney's "Beauty and the Beast").Donny also recently co-starred in the Disney film "College Road Trip" and he can currently be found appearing with Marie in their variety show at the Flamingo five nights a week.Q: You have a lot of history performing in Las Vegas -- you've been working here since you were a kid. How have you seen the city change over the years -- has entertainment changed?A: "It's gotten bigger -- that's for sure. Entertainment is entertainment. Obviously the production value has gotten huge and I think a lot of people have learned that, yes, we've raised the bar. But what Marie and I have tried to accomplish here is bring back a little bit of traditional Vegas where it's not just production, but there's personality -- and that's what we've tried to create here at the Flamingo. Yeah, we give them a lot of the dancing and the lights and the multimedia and sound and everything, but there are times where we just sit down and sing and try to give them what we were raised on -- and that is variety."Do you have any memories that stand out from your days performing here back in the '70s? Ever hang out with the Rat Pack or anything like that?A: "My first memory is opening up for Shirley Bassey at Sahara and Mickey Rooney would come by every so often and join in the show. I remember Elvis coming back stage when we were playing the International, when the Hilton was the International, and talking to us back in his dressing room. He closed and then we opened the next night and he stayed to watch our opening show. Then I remember working at Caesars and Frank was out in the audience when we were opening up for Nancy."Speaking of Elvis, there's some footage of you in your show in Elvis-like jumpsuits. Was that just the style or were you a big fan?A: "It's interesting to note that we had the same designer and when Elvis went into that high collar, flare bellbottom kind of a look, it's about the same time that Bill Belew started designing for us, which was around 1970. Obviously Elvis had it maybe slightly before us, but we had the same designer, Bill Belew."It's been 29 years since you did a long-term engagement in Las Vegas. What made you want to come back and do that?A: "We always knew we'd be back. We knew it would be inevitable for Donny and Marie to do something … We wanted to pursue our own careers after 'The Donny and Marie Show' ended and we did that and we thought, you know it's time to bring back some nostalgia and bring back our individual careers. When Chip Lightman and Danny Gans contacted us, they said 'we think Donny and Marie is right for Vegas right now and I know you guys have been thinking about it.' So we looked at a lot of different showrooms and then he introduced us to Don (Marrandino, president of the Flamingo). I was the first one to come here to the Flamingo and I saw the showroom and I said 'that's it.' The booths, the old traditional Vegas -- it's not the concert seating. It's intimate enough, it's small enough yet large enough to support a larger show. It was a perfect fit."You've been performing together for more than 30 years and you're still selling out shows. How have you managed to maintain that popularity?A: "It's unbelievable what's going on. You never really know what's going to happen... You can throw millions of dollars at a show and you just don't know if the audience is going to take to it. We're no exception to the rule, but the word of mouth has been fantastic. Granted, Marie and I have put forth a lot of work… but you just never know, so we're really lucky, really blessed right now to have a wave to ride -- especially in these economic times."In the show you joke about the fact that you're a grandfather, yet you do some pretty strenuous dancing. Where do you get all the energy for that?A: "I have no idea. I really don't know. I'm pretty tired at the end of the week. This grandpa goes home and plays with the grandkids."But that takes a lot of energy too.A: "It's different though. It recharges my batteries so to speak. I still have young children at home. My youngest is ten and I have a seventeen-year-old in high school and three older than that -- twenty-three, twenty-seven and twenty-nine." You've got your hands full.A: "Yeah I do, but I'm pretty lucky in that respect too. I get to have my cake and eat it too as they say. I get to play Vegas and do the star role and then I go home and play the dad role."You sing a lot of greatest hits in your show -- any plans to release new music? A: "We do actually. There's talk of doing a Donny and Marie album but again, we still have our own separate careers. Marie's working on an album right now and so the plans are there but …to add any more on the plate would be kind of dangerous right now, but there are plans for me to start my solo project after the first of the year."Would you ever want to go back to TV or do you prefer a live audience?A: "There is a show in the works right now -- can't really release the information yet -- but a network show that Marie and I are looking at doing... Vegas is looking like exactly the way I wanted it to be a few years ago -- the home base for both of us. Because when you get right down to it, let's call it the way it is -- Vegas has become the entertainment capital of the world. Everybody comes here and to have a huge presence here is just a good move."Have you gone to see anyone else's shows in town?A: "No I haven't. I wish I could but we all do shows at the same time. Although, the night before last I was in my dressing room late and George Wallace comes on and I walk out on stage, so I was part of George's show and sang with Mosaic. They said they want to do it again. They're coming up with an arrangement to involve me in one of their songs. So really that's the only thing I can do since all of our shows are at the same time and I go home Sundays and Mondays."You have done television, Broadway -- is there anything you haven't done yet that you'd like to do? Would you like to go back to Broadway?A: "Yeah -- That's obviously a really nice feather in your cap to say you've been to Broadway -- it's a long commitment because you have to do at least 5 -- 6 months…it's going to be easier for me to do stuff like that once my children are raised, but right now Vegas is the ideal situation for me. I did something last August that was so much fun. I did a Disney film with Martin Lawrence and Raven Symone. I played the dorkiest guy though but I had so much fun so I'd kind of like to do some more cameo spots in films. I like to jump around. I like to do it all. It keeps me from getting bored so to speak. Here again, I guess it's that variety in me -- I like to do a lot of different kinds of things."-- By Kristine McKenzie

Donny and Marie at the Flamingo in Las Vegas
PostedJune 18, 2013
Amazing show that should be on everyone's "too see" list. They have come back to the stage with power and purpose to prove that they are indeed a talent that isn't found just anywhere and any age. They commaded the stage..used their dancing and singing interwoven into a extremely entertaining musical experience. I don't know how it's possible to do that at any age. My recommendation is that this show should be on HBO to all enjoy.
