Celine Dion is still planning the return in March; Vegas revival uncertain


The Theater at Resorts World Las Vegas is officially a fixture on the Strip residences scene. Carrie Underwood The shattering opening of “Reflection” at the Royal Venue, which will be attended by Katy Perry and Luke Bryan, ensured that the theater will be a long-term international destination.

What is not the center of attention is when Celine Dion, her performances put aside for health reasons, will perform at the Theater. Its status is still uncertain. We can’t even confirm whether she will headlining next year yet.

Asked Wednesday if there had been an update to Dion’s programming plans at the theater, the CEO of Concerts West John meglen said, “No, there is nothing to update. I mean, when she’s ready, she’ll be ready.

AEG Presents, the parent company of Concerts West, manages the theater and is taking the initiative to book its headliners. Dion announced in October that she was canceling her Vegas dates, citing severe muscle spasms.

“Everything else is totally on schedule,” Meglen said. “Celine is not going anywhere.”

That’s true when it comes to Vegas residency schedules, but Dion is expected to be heading somewhere in March. His delayed world tour is set to resume on March 9 at the Ball Arena in Denver. She is on the road in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom until September.

the manager of Dion, Dave platel, said in a text Friday: “Nothing to add at this time. Our March calendar is intact to this day, and we hope all will be well. “

Given that time horizon and the fact that Perry and Bryan picked up dates in January and February, the first Dion would likely perform at Resorts World would be October.

It would be after at least three headliners (and four, counting the Michael Bublé) have already performed at the Theater. Céline’s is definitely a program to watch, especially if her tour dates are postponed again.

AEG and vax

The Theater at Resorts World and the Theater at Virgin Hotels do not require proof of COVID vaccination for fans entering these facilities. Ticket holders are required to follow the state’s mask mandate, which will be in place until early 2022.

AEG Presents operates both sites, which are owned by their host complexes.

Additionally, Encore Theater, where AEG has a booking partnership, also follows the state’s mask mandate and does not require proof of vaccination. In August, AEG announced that it maintains a vax proof policy at the sites it owns and operates. The company has decided to follow state rules in the locations it operates in Las Vegas.

‘After Dark’ after Mars

Brian newman says of her upcoming shows at NoMad Library, “There’s nothing crazy new just yet, just more of the same beauty.”

Newman returns his late-night ‘After Dark’ hang-up at the Strip Art Library at 11:30 p.m. on December 17. Additional dates are December 30 and 31. Newman is following Bruno Mars on Dolby Live for all of these dates (Mars is also booked on December 18).

“We’ll be doing some holiday stuff on the 17th,” Newman said in a phone conversation from New York on Friday. “It’ll be a one night only kind of thing.” “

Newman was recently featured on the CBS Sunday TV show Tony Bennett-Lady Gaga concert at Radio City Music Hall. The show was filled with amazing performances at the center of the universe.

In Vegas, the burlesque woman of Newman, the star, Angie Pontani, is back as a star striptease artist. Jaclyn McSpadden, Skye Dee Miles and Mikalah gordon are among the singers Newman has lined up for all three shows. Murray sawchuck is always available, with his partner-wife, Dany Elisabeth, for a magical interlude.

Also, the imposing comic opera clown Feast of pity puddles makes himself available. He posted “I’m ready!” to the show’s Newman Instagram ad.

Newman had played his previous series right after playing Gaga’s “Jazz + Piano” shows on Dolby Live. It made a long night of music.

“I look forward to playing the shows when I’m rested,” Newman said. “I am delighted to end this year on a high note and hopefully add dates for 2022.”

A time to “stick”

Jonathan cain Journey says has untapped film-themed potential.

“I would love to see more of Journey in the movies,” the songwriter and multi-instrumentalist said during a media session Tuesday at the Theater at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, where the group continues their six-show residency this weekend. “I don’t think they’ve used our catalog at all. We have so many great songs from the movies.

I asked Cain if a particular song had come out. A Bond theme, maybe?

“It’s funny you say that because there’s a song called ‘Eyes of a Woman’ that’s very James Bond,” Cain said. “It could be the opening song of a Bond movie. It’s very haunting and very different for us.

It’s from the 1986 album Raised on Radio. Give it a spin. Cain is right.
