London calls his icons together for a tribute to pop & roll greats

“Why sound like me when I can sound like everyone else,” mused Greg London during a recent performance of “ICONS” at the Riviera Hotel and Casino. Sounds like a performer with a serious identity disorder, but in the case of London it’s not about suffering from multiple personalities even though he hears voices in his head. Rather, the award-winning entertainer has simply leveraged a state of mind that enables him to effectively channel over thirty pop … Read entire article »

How is it that the explosive convergence of kinetic, creative and dramatic energy generated by Cirque du Soleil’s “Love” has not launched the Love Theater into orbit like the many mushroom clouds so familiar to Vegas of the 1950s? It’s because this Cirque production succeeds so well, that even an earth-rattling atomic explosion won’t separate it from the destiny of audiences whose beautiful fate is to experience this 90-minute tribute to Beatles music.

Enter the American Superstars tribute show at Stratosphere Las Vegas … Read entire article »

But to experience her high level of energy and enthusiasm live in person is to suggest there should be two names gracing the Riviera marquee, as in Charo-Charo. In other words, one name for each of what seems like two people co-habitating the petite frame of this entertainment firecracker … Read entire article »
