The 27th annual “Merry Christmas Las Vegas” live show will take place at the LVH (formerly the Las Vegas Hilton) on Saturday, Dec. 8, 2012, at 4 p.m. and will be taped for television in front of a live audience from the main showroom.
As tradition, the show will be hosted by the show’s creator Las Vegas entertainer/TV host – Tony Sacca, and will feature a stellar lineup of Las Vegas’ finest entertainers performing in the holiday spirit.
The list of performers for this year’s holiday show include: legendary impressionist Rich Little; internationally acclaimed guitarist Esteban with violinist daughter Teresa Joy; award winning tribute show “The Rat Pack is Back;” tribute to Michael Jackson “MJ Live!;” singer Denise Clemente; the musical “Nunsense;” Tony Sacca & The Sexy Saccettes; the cast of “iCandy;” vocal group Spectrum; singing sisters Blonde Divas; Tommy Ward and the Rossi Reyes 17-piece Jazz Orchestra; and the fabulous Las Vegas Young Entertainers. Performers will be backed by the Michael T Orchestra.
Sacca conceived “Merry Christmas Las Vegas” in 1986 when he moved to Las Vegas. Originally the show was performed and filmed at the Mt. Charleston Hotel for about nine years. When the show went national, it was taped at Strip resorts starting at the Riviera Casino & Hotel and ending up at the Stratosphere Casino Hotel & Tower for 10 years.
Sacca and the Las Vegas Young Entertainers were invited four times to perform at the White House, in the U.S. Capitol Building and outdoors by the Washington Christmas Tree, during the holiday season.
