The longest running show in Las Vegas is getting a new home. Legends in Concert will bring an all-new residency to the Vegas hotel the second week of February. Despite being brand new, guests can still expect tributes to some of the greatest musical icons of all time.
“We are excited to welcome our newest residency addition, Legends in Concert, to the iconic Tropicana Las Vegas,” said Aaron Rosenthal, VP and General Manager for Tropicana Las Vegas in a statement. “This one-of-a-kind show has entertained more than 35 million fans around the globe, and its remarkable history on The Strip makes for the perfect partnership – where two legends in Las Vegas come together. The addition of Legends in Concert to our entertainment lineup demonstrates Penn National Gaming’s ongoing commitment to make the experience at Tropicana better than ever.”
Legends in Concert made its debut on the Vegas Strip in 1983 and continues to honor some of the best performers of all time. Tribute artists take the form of such talent as Elvis Presley, Aretha Franklin, Sting, Michael Jackson and many more. Not only do they look like their iconic music counterparts, they sound just like them as well.
In addition to the music and artists, the production will feature elaborate theatrical acts, exquisite costumes and special effects.
“We are thrilled to unveil our all-new production at our new legendary home, Tropicana Las Vegas, building on the show’s three and a half decades of success, while also beginning a powerful multi-year agreement between two Vegas icons,” said Brian Brigner, chief operating officer of On-Stage Enterprises, producers of Legends in a statement. “We are delighted to expand our relationship with Penn National Gaming via a long-term multi-dimensional partnership, and move the flagship version of our production to the famed four corners of the Las Vegas Strip. We are grateful to our long-time host Flamingo Las Vegas, where our currently scheduled performances will continue through the end of the year, prior to commencing our performances this February at our new Las Vegas home.”
Over its 35-year career, Legends in Concert has earned numerous awards including Show of the Year, Entertainers of the Year, Grand Slam, Show of Shows awarded by the International Press Association, and was recently awarded the 2018 Casino Production Show of the Year at the sixth annual Casino Entertainment Awards.
