“`Wayne Newton will mark his sixtieth anniversary with a return to Caesars Palace casino-resort. His show starts Monday with dates scheduled until May. He has performed in 30,000 live shows on the world-famous Las Vegas Strip.

“`Wayne’s success in Las Vegas began when a two-week tryout at the Fremont Hotel and Casino turned into a lounge act of six shows per night, six nights a week for nearly a year. The crooner earned national fame after his television appearance on The Jackie Gleason Show in 1962. He soon became known as Las Vegas hottest entertainer, signed a contract to work thirty-six weeks a year for Howard Hughes Summa hotels. He worked more than forty weeks a year, building a local ranch home and raising prize Arabian horses.             WAYNE NEWTON –>

“`Caesars Entertainment estimates Newton has performed for more than forty million fans over the past six decades. Along the way, he saw Las Vegas’ transformation from a gambling oasis to a glitzy destination with corporate-owned mega casino-resorts that have world-class dining, shopping areas and venues that sign superstars for extended engagements known as residencies. Wayne is considered a pioneering local headliner.

“`Newton was previously at a showroom at Bally’s casino-resort, but it ended in December. The planned shows at Caesars will be in a room for under two hundred people, providing a more intimate setting. The Danke Schoen crooner will be backed by a live band during his Wayne Newton: Up Close and Personal show. He will sing some favorite numbers and share personal career highlights through film clips, anecdotes, and questions from the audience.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
