ABC News announced recently that at the age of 70, Cher will be returning to the Las Vegas stage. Cher will be coming back to Vegas and Maryland as 'classic Cher', performing some of her biggest hits with more glitz and glamor than ever at the Park Theater at Monte Carlo (soon to be The Park).
Cher said: "I plan to make this my best show ever and I am extremely excited about both of these new theaters - they are state-of-the-art and beautiful".
The Lucky Dragon, scheduled for a Dec 3 opening, recently won final approvals from the Nevada Gaming Commission. It's the first ground-up casino built near the Strip in the last several years and sits near the corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Sahara Avenue.
Matthew Harkness, the Lucky Dragon General Manager, has said that the resort will aim to market domestic Asian customers in Las Vegas and Southern California, as well as those in the Pacific Northwest and Vancouver, British Columbia. Harkness expects that only 10% of the casinos revenue will be coming from overseas customers.
Scott Falkner, of the Inquisitr, recently posted about the Las Vegas hotels and casinos that are going environmentally friendly and 'leaving the Nevada power grid' by becoming primarily solar powered.
Las Vegas casinos associated with both MGM Resorts International and Wynn Resorts Ltd officially left the power grid this month, with MGM Vice President John McManus saying "It is our objective to reduce MGM’s environmental impact by decreasing the use of energy and aggressively pursuing renewable energy sources."
