“REVIEW: “Legends in Concert’s” Holiday Show” By Sandy Zimmerman

Award-winning “Legends in Concert’s” exceptionally large stage was filled with holiday visions- two Christmas trees and their grand stairway glowed with ornaments. Instead of one large video screen background, separate sections flashed with exciting scenes.   

I enjoyed the blending of a holiday flavor to their usual tribute format with all of the excitement of a “Legends in Concert” show.
This production highlights the glamour and pizazz reminiscent of earlier Las Vegas shows along with four highly rated REBA, BONO, ELVIS, & MARIA tribute artists, and a cast of exceptional dancers.  

Watching Corrie Sach’s stand-out REBA performance of Reba’s biggest hit song “The Heart Won’t Lie”, you could feel the emotion in her words and realize the meaning of the song. Corrie was perfect in her adaptation of REBA MCINTIRE as she switched from emcee introducing each act as well as her own star tribute. Another stand-out performance was Jass Meagher who brought Mariah Carey for the first time on a Legends stage. Bill Cherry portrays Elvis Presley in style! Pavel Sfera brings rockin’ songs fromU2 as BONO.  

The dance numbers stood out for their creativity! An interesting touch to the show, each of the female dancers wore different tops but they all wore the same bottoms of their costumes.
All of this in one show!

In early 2000, I reviewed “Legends in Concert” at the Imperial Palace and that evening saw tributes to Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, Janet Jackson and Rod Steward.  

This very special holiday production at Legends in Concert continues through December 30. Legends in Concert performs at Tropicana Las Vegas Monday through Saturday (dark Sunday) at 7:30 p.m. Tickets: Start at $49.99 (excluding tax and fees).
