Las Vegas Showstoppers

Powerhouse vocalist Adele is known as a showstopper.  And at a show at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, she did that – literally.  During a rendition of “Water Under the Bridge”, she stopped singing and addressed the crowd.  “What is going on there with that young fan who’s been bothered so much since I came on for standing up?”  The fan in question raised his hand.  “What’s going on with him?  Yes, you, with your hand up.  Yes, you.  Why are you all bothering him?  Can you leave him alone, please?”  Security walked away.  Pleased with herself, Adele continued.  “They won’t bother you anymore, darling.  You enjoy the show.  Leave him alone.”  Before going back to the song, she added, “Sorry, guys.  He’s been bothered the whole show by security and other people sitting behind him.”  Well, I can’t blame the people sitting behind him – they probably couldn’t see a thing!  “He’s here to have fun.  All of you are here to have fun.”  Unless you’re sitting behind him – then you’re on your own!

Speaking of Las Vegas, we have some exciting news.  I’ve already told you that the vivacious Varla Jean Merman will be performing at the Westgate on October 3-5 (on the eve of Las Vegas Pride).  That same week, Vegas will welcome another luminary with her own residency.  The Queen of Burlesque, Dita Von Teese, will take to the stage of the Jubilee Theatre starting October 5thDita Las Vegas: A Jubilant Review will be staged at Horseshoe Las Vegas (previously Bally’s) – the former home of Fluff LeCoque.  The press release promises it will be “the most lavishly staged burlesque production ever, anywhere”.  That’s good enough for me to book a flight.
