The longest running show on the Vegas strip, Legends in Concert, has been revamped and now stars some of the biggest names in music history! The celebrity impersonation show began in 1983 at Imperial Palace, now known as the LINQ, as a limited engagement. Now, 34 years later the show is just as popular as ever.
Legends, which now plays in the 700-capacity Donny and Marie Showroom at the Flamingo, has spent the past three years changing up and rotating different stars into the show to keep it fresh. Because so many of the Legends portrayed in the production now have their own residencies on the Strip, Legends decided to mix things up for its 34th season, which launched February 11, and brought back some of the legends that you can’t see anymore.
With the new “Legends Never Die” edition of the production, guests will not see any living legends, but instead hear the hits from such artists as Janis Joplin who kicks things off with the songs, “Me and Bobby McGee,” “Piece of My Heart” and more. The King of Pop Michael Jackson also takes the stage performing “Thriller” with six backup dancers. Next is Marilyn Monroe, who interacts with the audience before belting out “Heat Wave.” Finally Elvis Presley closes out the show.
In addition to the new legends, the show also as an original opening number designed by “Dancing with the Stars” and “So You Think You Can Dance” choreographer Lacey Schwimmer.
