May 5 marked the 33rd anniversary of the longest-running show in Las Vegas, Legends in Concert. Initially introduced in 1983 as a six week limited engagement at the Imperial Palace Hotel & Casino, this Las Vegas original now performs 10 shows a week, year round in the Donny & Marie Showroom at Flamingo Las Vegas (Pictured: Frank Moore as Prince).
The elaborate production takes audiences on an electrifying journey through some of music’s most legendary performances. The current cast of legends crosses a dynamic spectrum of music. The show highlights legends-in-the-making such as Adele, portrayed by JC Brando, music titan, Michael Jackson, performed by Damian Brantley, and features Frank Moore’s tribute to beloved icon, Prince. The Blues Brothers, played by Eric Martin and Carmen Romano, host the incomparable experience of tributes with their engaging brand of comedy.
As Legends in Concert is always evolving, exciting tribute artists turn up the heat this summer with Jazmine as megastar Whitney Houston, Kate Steele as Lady Gaga, and the much anticipated return of Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Champion, Bill Cherry, as the “King of Rock ‘n’ Roll.”
“It has been our privilege and pleasure for the past 33 years to showcase such enormously talented tribute artists and to provide family-oriented, value-priced live musical entertainment, six nights per week, Center Strip,” said Brian Brigner, chief operating officer for Legends in Concert. “It’s been a long road to get to this moment, but it’s been a great ride.”
