New Entertainment Venue Planned for Las Vegas

The Saxe Theater will be the new name for the 435-seat Las Vegas performance theater venue in the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood.  The theater was formerly operated by magician Steve Wyrick, who surrendered it to the mall in a December foreclosure. 

Producer David Saxe will manage this new venue and his current V Theater, also located in the Miracle Mile Shops area.  The V runs as many as 17 performances of 10 titles per day. 

The new Saxe Theater is planned to be up and running by June 1.  

Though the production theme is being worked out,  one of the ideas proposed is a show that that documents the history of Las Vegas entertainment industry.

$67 Million Memorial Day Weekend Party in Las Vegas

Lavish spending and, hopefully, getting a great return on the investment, is the whole idea behind the replacement of the porte cochere at Wynn’s Encore with Encore Beach Resort and Surrender nightclub in Las Vegas, including new outdoor seating for Switch restaurant as well. 

The changes, funded by Wynn Resorts Ltd., all kickoff starting on Memorial Day weekend.

The beach club features a 60,000-square-foot pool with 40-foot tall palm trees and three tiered pools.  Bungalows and cabanas are part of the chic design experience, along with a restaurant and poolside gaming tables.

Keith Emerson and Greg Lake to Perform in Las Vegas?

Maybe yes, maybe no.  The duo from the classic rock group Emerson, Lake and Palmer has planned their “Unplugged Tour” for the Las Vegas Hilton for April 24.  But, hold on… to date, the group has had a very rocky start and have cancelled their prior U.S. shows due, as they say, to “musical and technical reasons.”  Keep your fingers crossed- and toes!
