THE LAS VE­GAS STRIP

Weekend Herald - - Review -

Res­i­den­cies have been a sta­ple of the Las Ve­gas Strip for decades, pi­o­neered by pi­anist Lib­er­ace in the 1940s and Frank Si­na­tra in the 1950s. In the late 60s and early 70s Elvis Pres­ley played an eight-year run at the Hil­ton Show­room, en­ter­tain­ing an es­ti­mated 2.5 mil­lion peo­ple. More re­cently, Brit­ney Spears, Jen­nifer Lopez, Back­street Boys, Ricky Martin and Pit­bull are among the artists who have signed up to ex­tended runs. Those an­nounc­ing a string of shows for 2018 in­clude Bruno Mars, and Lady Gaga who has signed for a two-year run at the MGM Park Theatre.
