“Elvis Presley’s Heartbreak Hotel” opened with a star studded red carpet this was a big evening!
I interviewed the beautiful ladies of “X Country” (Harrah’s), the producer’s latest hit –others include “X Burlesque” (Flamingo) and “X Rocks” (Ballys). Their motto, “Unleash your wildest fantasies at “X Country”. The show is called “A Kick’n Topless Revue” which brings the best of contemporary country with a great mix of traditional music that adds so much more. This is an adult show and you’ll know why when watching the dances.
The “Naked Magicians” recently opened at the MGM Grand- Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club bringing their own unique style of humor mixed with magic from Australia and tonight were here on the red carpet at Harrah’s.
I attended Hypnotist Anthony Cools (Paris) opening 25 years ago and always happy to see him tonight and at other events. It is amazing how Anthony hypnotizes all the people on the stage at once! His show is always fun for the audience.
There are a lot of magicians in Las Vegas but only one with a duck! Adam London (D Hotel) performs quick-action close-up magic with a touch of humor.
Next I interviewed Kitty, the hostess at “Marriage Can be Murder”. She is not the murderer, but the murderer may be sitting next to you while everyone dines eating a great dinner. I saw the show twice and it’s always funny as you try to guess who done it.
Retired comedian Fielding West, without his tiger, still appears around Las Vegas and on tours.
It was a grand affair reminiscent of early Las Vegas, a time to enjoy an exciting production show and a lavish after party feast dining at Sushi Roku, in Caesars Palace.
The celebrities also included: Cast of “Friends the Musical” (D Hotel), TV/Comedian/Magician Murray SawChuck (Tropicana), Jose Canseco (sport’s figure), Film/TV personality Doc Phineas (Jay Leno’s Garage, Haunted Hospitals, Touched & Mute & Duds, The Professor-Pawn Stars), Comedian/Hypnotist Marc Savard (Planet Hollywood), cast of “Raiding the Rock Vault” (Hard Rock Hotel), cast of “Fantasy” (Luxor), Brent Musburger (lead broadcaster/ managing editor/ Vegas Stats /Information Network/Oakland Raiders radio play-by-play voice), television personality/ actor/singer Adrian Zmed appeared as Johnny Nogerelli in Grease 2 and Officer Vince Romano in the T.J. Hooker television series; “Tenors of Rock” (Planet Hollywood), The Miss Behave Game show (D Hotel), and many more.
