The “Country Superstars Tribute” is wrapping up their performances at Fitzgeralds in Las Vegas on June 28, with the “Marriage Can Be Murder” dinner show moving in the next day.
The country show with the “Legends’ impersonator format has been growing strong for two years and more than 500 shows. But the live band and multi-act format proved to be top-heavy for the room, which only seats about 120 people.
Ron Keel, who originally co-produced and performed as Ronnie Dunn, has been spending more time out of the show, trying to revive his ‘80s rock band, Keel. Producer Leonard Quenneville hopes to find a Las Vegas venue large enough to support the show’s format.
“Marriage” will put the audience closer to fellow suspects when the dinner show gives up the Canyon Club at Four Queens for the cozier space at Fitzgeralds.
On May 2 a benefit concert will be held in Las Vegas for Las Vegas celebrity impersonator Trina Johnson-Finn, who has been jailed in South America for more than seven weeks.
