In preparation for his 500th performance at the Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower, Stratosphere headliner Frankie Moreno will debut a brand new show including new band members, new songs, and new choreography and special performances by Dancing With The Stars’ Lacey Schwimmer in his critically acclaimed Frankie Moreno Live beginning June 12, 2014 at 8 p.m (Photo credit: Denise Truscello / WireImage / www.DeniseTruscello.net).
Moreno is known for his unique and enthusiastic style on stage. The singer, songwriter and showman is incorporating the changes to keep the show fresh for audience members and to tap into his own artistic pursuits.
“I want to continue keeping audiences entertained and after 500 shows at the Stratosphere Theater, this is the perfect time to mix it up a bit,” said Moreno. “I think the audience is really going to like it.”
Changes include new songs written by Moreno and his song-writing team, brothers Ricky and Tony Moreno. The band will also debut four new members who, along with the entire band, will take a more active role in the performance by participating in choreography. The dance and choreography aspects of the show are being directed by professional dancer and choreographer Lacey Schwimmer, who will also dance periodically during Moreno’s performances. Schwimmer, who performed for six seasons on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars program also danced during Moreno’s performance on the popular show in 2012.
“Frankie Moreno Live at Stratosphere is one of the premier live shows on the Las Vegas Strip with an incredible amount of artistic energy, showmanship and talent,” said Paul Hobson, Vice President and General Manager of the Stratosphere. “We’re excited about the changes and the new feel to the show.”
A red carpet media event is scheduled prior to the performance, beginning at 7 p.m.
