Guests love to be ‘wowed’ in Las Vegas. They enjoy and embrace new tastes, new flavors, and they come to expect the unexpected in Las Vegas.
I’ve enjoyed appearing in Atlantic City. East Coast audiences are a bit brighter than Las Vegas audiences. I think most entertainers will tell you the same thing. The East Coast audiences are more perceptive – especially when it comes to a performer with a theatrical background.
They are the three venues I wanted to box in – I wasn’t really interested in Las Vegas and all of them places. The three I always said was Croke Park, United, and Madison Square Garden.
Burnout comes easy in the high-pressure world of television, and when the opportunity arose to move to Las Vegas and bring my friends and star chefs to open their restaurants at the Venetian, I made the move here.
My daughter just graduated college and she’s a dance major. She’s done a couple of dance videos already and won Miss Massachusetts a couple of weeks ago. She’s going out for Miss United States the second week of July, out in Las Vegas. She will probably wind up going to New York and trying the Broadway thing.
As my wife says, I’ll never fully retire, but it’ll start to slow down. I’ll continue to do the local gigs or go to Las Vegas. But I won’t be going out to Ohio to play an Indian casino anymore. Those will probably go by the wayside.
Your email inbox is a bit like a Las Vegas roulette machine. You know, you just check it and check it, and every once in a while there’s some juicy little tidbit of reward, like the three quarters that pop down on a one-armed bandit. And that keeps you coming back for more.
I met Elvis first in Las Vegas. I think I was appearing with Tom Jones and he came backstage to say hello to Tom or we went to his dressing room to say hello.
I’ve always thought of Las Vegas as Los Angeles on its day off. There’s not any hierarchy of taste, and that’s what L.A. always was to me: It’s not really a town of culture – it’s a town of entertainment.
Actually, I was born in Las Vegas. My parents moved to Utah when I was eight because, after 40 years in Vegas, they were tired of it. We ended up in Nephi, a really small town in Utah.
I went with a friend to see Frank Sinatra in Las Vegas, in the last year that he was performing. He wasn’t necessarily on top form, but the way he could connect with an audience and the way he communicated through the lyrics was something I hadn’t ever really seen before.
Almost six years ago, before I was given the incredible opportunity to be in ‘Leaving Las Vegas,’ I was going through a long period of artistic confusion. I’d spent years doing work that hadn’t pushed me enough, and I was beginning to wonder if I had any talent.
I work a lot, and not just in Las Vegas.
I had a big troupe, a big army and it was a lot of fun. And, after 10 years of that, I just decided that I wanted to travel and do special dates. I go to Las Vegas these days.
I lost $35,000 in less than a week at the Mirage in Las Vegas.
‘Leaving Las Vegas’ is a relationship; ‘Dead Man Walking’ is a relationship, and they’re very contained movies. They’re compressed and not in wide open spaces all over the place.
There’s a great deal of disturbance in this country and how black feel about what happened in Katrina, and, you know, many of the comics, many of performers are in Las Vegas and New Orleans trying to raise money for what happened there.
We shot ‘Delusion’ in the middle of the desert and outside of Las Vegas where they did those underground nuclear bomb testings. So I only ate oysters and drank coffee because I didn’t want to turn into a mutant.
Phoenix and Las Vegas have grim long-term prospects. On top of oil-and-gas problems, they will have terrible problems with water and the ability to produce food locally. I suppose it shows how delusional the public is, and how our institutional controls have decayed – for instance, lending standards.
James Howard Kunstler
I never thought about becoming a professional singer, but I am in touch with Bono about releasing a musical movie. It will be about an Irish band during the ’70s who are looking for fortune in Las Vegas. I should play the singer of the band but I don’t want to sing in front of anybody.
After Leaving Las Vegas I did assume that things would get a lot easier than they’ve been. But it’s just been a mirror of the way my career’s been from the beginning, so for it to have changed would have been strange. My career has never been perfect.
Bangkok, like Las Vegas, sounds like a place where you make bad decisions.
I’m training at Phase 1 Sports in Las Vegas, and it’s a very high-end training facility for a lot of top-level athletes. I have been able to add a lot of power and the endurance to keep that power going. I’ve always been powerful, but the muscle conditioning I’ve been able to add has been a tremendous amount of help.
Nobody realizes that Mormons were the first Americans to settle Las Vegas.
Nevada Energy doesn’t lose money. The gaming industry loses money. It employs all the people. It pays all the taxes. And if you take the P&L, the profit and loss, of the hotels in Las Vegas and Reno, it is a number that is minus, not plus, minus.
My grandmother is still a woman who worries about what she looks like when she goes outside. She’s from that era, and I can remember saying to her, ‘Grandmother, we’re just going to the grocery store.’ And she’d be like, ‘I’ve got to fix my face!’ You were very aware of how you were presenting yourself to society in 1960s Las Vegas.
I was at our beautiful home in Martha’s Vineyard, near Boston, sitting on the porch looking at the ocean when I got a phone called and was asked, ‘Would I like to do ‘CSI’?’ A week later, I’m at a coroner’s office in Las Vegas, participating in a quadruple autopsy.
I moved from Minnesota to Las Vegas when I was 13, so I spent my high school years there and did some things I’m not proud of.
I was trying to take the band in a direction that I thought was appropriate, and Roth was trying to take the band in more of a Las Vegas direction. And there he is.
Eddie Van Halen
I have seen American determination in people like Debbi Sommers. She runs a furniture rental business for conventions in Las Vegas. When 9/11 hit, and again, when the recession tanked the conventions business, she didn’t give up, close down, or lay off her people. She taught them not just to rent furniture, but also to manufacture it.
The opportunity to be a star chef, to imagine it would be here in Las Vegas, I couldn’t comprehend it.
I was always obsessed with other performers doing their thing, and Britney ‘Live in Las Vegas’ from 2001 is my absolute favorite tour DVD of all time.
We were offered 100 ‘Sgt. Pepper’ shows in Las Vegas with a huge back-end.
Bun E. Carlos
It is not easy to get rich in Las Vegas, at Churchill Downs, or at the local Merrill Lynch office.
No presidential candidate should visit Las Vegas without condemning organized gambling.
I didn’t much like Las Vegas. The noise of the place and the whole 24-hour, ‘let’s play the slot machines all night’ culture of the place just left me cold.
In 2009, I began creating ‘Waterworks’ with the new vernacular coming from the ‘Signs of Life’ work in Las Vegas.
John Van Hamersveld
I love Las Vegas. I like that Las Vegas has everything. Everything and anything you want to do, you can do in Las Vegas.
My memories of Las Vegas were all with my father when I was, like, a teenager. He was best friends with Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, and we’d come up and see the shows and go backstage afterwards and have dinner together. It was one of my first educations about stars and how they really are back stage.
Las Vegas has the type of audience – and they haven’t changed since my father’s days – they’re still boring and bored. And there’s only that handful of artists that they really enjoy and know how to respond to.
I love seafood. Whenever I’m in Las Vegas, I love going to the Bellagio buffet because they have these great king crab legs.
Las Vegas, New Mexico has had a lot of great movies shot there.
In the late 1960s, Ontario Airport was a throwback to a bygone era. Located 35 miles east of downtown Los Angeles, the airport served only two carriers, Western and Bonanza. Passengers could catch regional flights to San Francisco, Sacramento, Las Vegas, Palm Springs, Phoenix and Los Angeles, and that was about it.
‘Behind The Candelabra’ is an HBO movie. It’s the Liberace story. Michael Douglass and Matt Damon. I play a small part in it. I play a choreographer who introduces, brings Matt Damon to Las Vegas for the first time.
I used to be with a publishing house called Roosevelt Music. A gentleman there told me he had seen Peggy Lee perform Fever in Las Vegas and I found out later she wanted to record it.
I love the live performances and Las Vegas. I also like making films that are being discovered by another generation. Having been a teen idol of the ’60s is great because you realize you left your generation with a smile and good memories.
It was a melting pot in Las Vegas. You got every age level, every ethnic background, every social aura – it was an absolute Americana audience… people who were there to celebrate occasions; people who were there to gamble; people who were there because they were awed by the whole Vegas operation. Tourists.
The Middle East is not part of the world that plays by Las Vegas rules: What happens in the Middle East is not going to stay in the Middle East.
I like Las Vegas because it kind of gives me a chance to gauge my material in front of a very diverse group of people. There are a lot of different people in the audience, and you can kind of get a barometer for how your material plays throughout the country.
Investing should be more like watching paint dry or watching grass grow. If you want excitement, take $800 and go to Las Vegas.
I really love Las Vegas. It’s, like, my favorite place to be. I love to DJ out there. It is the place to be as a DJ.
I could’ve always worked shows, clubs, Las Vegas and Atlantic City, but I was successful in business ventures, and things weren’t happening in show business, so I said, ‘Let me see what I can do.’
For me, I think that, certainly, the fact that Las Vegas has a gambling aspect to it is far overshadowed by the entertainment value, if you will, family appeal, that you have, the convention appeal. So it does not have disfavor with me, in my opinion, relative to being an NFL city.
I’ve been able to go on and have a successful career on Broadway and certainly the last five years in Las Vegas have been amazing.
Las Vegas and I both grew up together, and all of a sudden I was doing things that no performer had ever done before.
It is amazing that you now have a bus company in Ballymena producing world class buses for Hong Kong, Singapore, London and Las Vegas.
I come home every weekend and I still can’t believe I represent Las Vegas in Congress. It’s such a kick.
I’ve had two romances since moving to Las Vegas. One was with somebody 12 years older than me, and the other was the same age, and neither worked out. I know people still think of me as one of Hugh Hefner’s girlfriends, and he of course was much older than me, but that was a whole different lifestyle and a different kind of dating.
Melissa Barak, an ex-City Ballet dancer and sometime choreographer, has put together an unspeakably dopey and incompetent mess called ‘Call Me Ben,’ combining ultra-generic dance, terrible dialogue and disastrous storytelling, about the founding of Las Vegas by the gangster Bugsy Siegel, who insists, violently, on being addressed as ‘Ben.’
Obviously, I try to make the films work for an audience. That’s the main point of making a film, and in retrospect, one can see that certain films, let’s say Leaving Las Vegas, demonstrated its own success.
I live in Las Vegas with my family, and I never realized what my parents would go through to get me to a five-minute audition.
When I was 17 years old, Frank DiLeo saw my very first music video and flew to my hometown of Las Vegas to meet with my family and me. Frank told my dad, ‘I am coming out of retirement to manage one last big act: Manika.’
Area 51 is located in southern Nevada desert about 75 miles north of Las Vegas. It’s set inside a greater land parcel that’s about the size of the state of Connecticut that’s called the ‘Nevada Test and Training Range.’
I did my time for the rape. I paid my money to Las Vegas. I paid my dues.
When I played the Sahara Hotel in Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve, I got to bring Wiley, my 85-pound black lab. He’s responsible for my favorite New Year’s memory of all: At the end of the show, he ran onstage and then out across all the tables in the showroom, sending champagne glasses and gamblers flying.
I know many people within Anonymous; I was the keynote speaker at Defcon in Las Vegas and got a standing ovation.
When I went to college at the University of Nevada back in Las Vegas, I got tricked into singing in choir. The first thing we did was the Mozart ‘Requiem.’ That was the piece that changed my life overnight.
In Zurich, in a cafe overlooking the Limmat, I ate butter-drenched white asparagus pulled from the ground that morning; it had the aftertaste of champagne. I’ve been able to appreciate epic meals in San Francisco, New Orleans, Berlin, Paris, Las Vegas.
J. R. Moehringer
My parents divorced when I was 3 years old. They had a lounge act in Las Vegas, where I was born. The band broke up and the marriage dissolved, and my mother, my sister and I moved to Southern California. And I didn’t see my dad a lot growing up; he was on the road a lot. I’d see him every couple years.
Las Vegas is a very strange place. It’s a place of broken dreams.
Any artist who goes to Las Vegas is an idiot as far as I am concerned. Whoever goes to Las Vegas can stay in Las Vegas.
I have always loved Las Vegas. It’s a traditional place for lounge comics to perform, and I love that.
Betting on the success of innovative technologies in the marketplace can carry all the uncertainty and risk that betting on the next card in the deck does at a blackjack table in Las Vegas. There is a factor of randomness that must be factored in, but precisely how to do so is anyone’s guess.
I believe in Las Vegas. I think its best days are ahead of it. But I’m afraid to do anything in the current political environment in the United States.
I love coming to Las Vegas. I’ve always loved it and always had a good time.
I believe what makes cooking in Las Vegas different from cooking in most other cities are the guests that dine with you in Las Vegas.
I love roller coasters that make my stomach drop. One ride in Las Vegas, the Big Shot, straps you into a row of seats and catapults you into the air from the top of the Stratosphere Tower – then plummets back down. I ride it over and over; it’s exhilarating.
If Yucca Mountain had not been designated as a dumpsite for radioactive waste in 1987, it might easily have become a scenic overlook on the long drive between Tonopah and Las Vegas.
Wil S. Hylton
In Las Vegas, the magnitude is impressive, but the humanity is gone. It feels like you’re being intimidated out of your money instead of inviting you to come have this experience.
Las Vegas is the boiling pot of entertainment.
Housing was ground zero for the Great Recession. Between early 2006 and Obama’s inauguration in 2009, average house prices fell by a third across the country. In certain areas, including cities as diverse as Akron, Orlando and Las Vegas, house prices fell by more than half.
If you were black, you experienced prejudice. It wasn’t a real horrible thing for us; we went through it. We noticed it mostly in the South and in Las Vegas, where we couldn’t stay in the hotels where we entertained. But that began to change.
I like the Eiffel Tower in Las Vegas more than the actual one.
The last episode of Dallas was in ‘1991.’ Unfortunately, it was a terrible episode to end the show on: it was a sort of ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ with Larry as the Jimmy Stewart character. In that episode, I was an ineffectual-schlep kind of brother, who got divorced three or four times and was a Las Vegas reject.
I was born and raised in Las Vegas, and then I left there to go to the University of Evansville where I majored in theatre.
I’ve always loved it in Las Vegas, and it is the only city in the world that brings so many different talented people from so many places.
I don’t like Las Vegas. I’d rather be mountain biking or climbing.
The success of one market model cannot be migrated to another. Ignoring Macau’s special characteristics and duplicating a Las Vegas or an Atlantic City would not be a successful strategy.
Most people think of Las Vegas, and they think of extravagance. But it’s really a mix between fantasy and laziness.
I cut a rap song once. It was a few years ago for my old show ‘Buck Commander,’ and it was a song called ‘You’re Short.’ It was about my camera guy. We shot the video in Las Vegas, ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ style!
I’ve been trying to watch my weight a bit, but when I come to Las Vegas, all bets are off. I get enough healthy food in L.A. where the food is the size of a quarter and costs $40 – when I’m in Vegas, I want a steak!
In the heart of the desert and founded by the first Spanish Conquistadores, Las Vegas has become the entertainment capital of the world, with more than 30 million visitors a year.
A lot of places in Las Vegas are big boxes of stuff. The hotels I’ve built have had, for lack of a better term, a soul.
I think we can really use magic in a way never attempted before to inspire these children, help rally their self-confidence and even help them develop social skills. This is a national effort, not just here in Las Vegas. I know we can give them a true passion.
All my memories of being in Las Vegas with Bobby were great. Frank Sinatra brought us to the Sands Hotel in 1965. When we worked that lounge, it was a great lounge. I think it was bigger than the showroom. We were two 25-year-old dumb kids from Orange County in Las Vegas with The Rat Pack.
With everything it has to offer, Las Vegas is an obvious destination for tourists, as proven by the over 40 million visitors the city welcomes per year.
There are three capitals of entertainment in the world: Las Vegas, New York and London. So far the only one I truly conquered is Vegas. New York and London are still on my checklist.
If you don’t have a pool in Las Vegas, you have to put your children in the icebox.
One day, I saw a magic show, and I was like, ‘I have to learn how to do this!’ Every time I went to Las Vegas, I had to get at least two or three tricks from the magic shops.
Las Vegas is the expression, in glitter and concrete, of America’s brittle and mutating id.
I hate Disneyland. It primes our kids for Las Vegas.
My 2005 calendar we actually did a shoot in Lake Las Vegas. Since I had requests do some swimwear and athletic shots we tried them and they came out good so we inserted them into the new calendar.
The guys have a lot of good cars built up. We’re going to do some more testing before we go back to Las Vegas and try to win at Vegas again. We need to get off to a quick start.
Las Vegas without Wayne Newton is like Disneyland without Mickey Mouse.
Las Vegas is a 24-hour city. It never stops.
The reason we shot it was that the script was geared to Las Vegas and it was something commercial that we wanted to have in the can in case Butterfly was a success and we needed a follow-up.
