Wynn Las Vegas will welcome legendary singer-songwriter, record producer and record executive Smokey Robinson in the New Year. The singer will bring his new show Live in Vegas! to the intimate Encore Theater for a special three-night engagement on February 27 and March 1-2, 2019.
Robinson has been entertaining with his hits for four decades. His big claim to fame came after he co-founded Motown Records with Berry Gordy. Additionally, he and his group, The Miracles, have been making hits since 1960, beginning with “Shop Around,” which sold one million units. From 1960 to 1970, Robinson and The Miracles produced 26 top 40 hits, including several top 10 hits like “You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me,” “I Second That Emotion,” “The Tears Of a Clown” and others. During Robinson’s Live in Vegas! show fans can enjoy these chart-topping hits, as well as other favorites like “The Way You Do The Things You Do,” “My Girl,” and “Get Ready.”
With more than four decades of music under his belt it is no surprise that Robinson has accrued quite the award collection. He is an inductee of the Kennedy Center Honors and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He has received numerous accolades, including the Grammy Living Legend Award, BET Lifetime Achievement Award, the Heritage Award at the Soul Train Music Awards, and the National Medal of Arts. Howard University also conferred on Robinson the degree of Doctor of Music in 2006, as did the Berklee College of Music in 2009.
