Mega Stars and Shows Ensure that Memorial Day in Vegas Will be a Memorable One.
After one of the worst winters ever, the start of Summer 2014 can’t come quick enough. Lucky for you if you’re planning a Sin City adventure to kick it off there is plenty of excitement going on. Memorial Day weekend in Las Vegas is jam packed with big name stars and breathtaking performances guaranteed to help you forget about snowdrifts.
Bruno Mars: Since his career started at the ripe old age of 5 performing an Elvis impersonation in the hit movie Honeymoon in Vegas, it is only fitting that he take top billing on this list. Having won 2 Grammy awards in his first 4 years as a pop music sensation, Bruno is destined to become the musical legends are made from. You will be able to catch his live performance at the Cosmopolitan Hotel on May 23rd and 24th.
Diddy: Is that what he is calling himself now? You may remember him as P Diddy. Whatever his name is, he is still one of rap music’s most influential performers. If you have plans on diving into at least one pool party Memorial Day weekend, which you should, make it Rehab Sundays at Paradise Beach to see Sean Combs, er... P Diddy do his thing as host on May 25th.
Bill Cosby: So it isn’t music, but it was mentioned that there would be something for everyone. If you want to ROFL over the holiday weekend go to the Treasure Island Hotel on May 23rd. Here you will find one of the most entertaining men of all time performing his legendary comedy act. This Philly boy has been in the entertainment business for over 50 years and is still a very funny fellow.
Air Supply: Las Vegas is not all out of love for this Australian rock band, who will be with us live at the Orleans Hotel all weekend. With music that spans almost 4 decades, you are sure to hear some familiar hits as well as new songs off their latest studio album, Mumbo Jumbo.
Guns N’ Roses: This is No Trickery, Axl and the gang are still rocking, and will be doing so at the Hard Rock Café over Memorial Day Weekend. Promising an Evening Of Destruction, you can bet this hard rock sensation puts on an even better act then their last Vegas stint 2 years ago. We can only hope this time they manages to leave the police out of his antics.
Once: This Tony award winning Broadway musical has taken to the road and has plans on stopping off at the Reynolds Hall of The Smith Center for the Performing Arts over Memorial Day weekend. Once takes musical theatre a step further, allowing the actors play their own instruments to enhance this music inspired love story. If a step away from the mayhem and into a simpler time place is what you want, then Once will deliver.
Of course on top of all of this you will find that the pool parties, dayclubs and nightclubs in Vegas will all be hosting special events to ring in the summer season. So go ahead, pick your show, pack your bathing suit, and put that dang polar vortex behind you by heading to Las Vegas.
