What started as just a six-week engagement at the Imperial Palace in 1983, Legends in Concert became the longest-running show in Las Vegas history with 40 years of live music entertainment and 22,000+ performances.
And now, a gorgeous, all-new edition with music spanning more than four decades, Legends In Concert – Legendary Divas, has opened at The Orleans in Las Vegas. This production really showcases the “best of the best” tribute artists all on one stage.
Featuring a live band, 100% live vocals, dancers and showgirls, this tribute to some of the greatest women of music – Dolly Parton, Cher, Whitney Houston and Lady Gaga – hosted by Frank Marino will run for 11 must-see-shows through July 8.
In addition to the top-tier “divas,” big props to the hard working/high-energy dancers, the fantastic and oh-so-versatile backup singers, and the gorgeous lighting design.
The opening night began with a thunderous performance of “Lady Marmalade” featuring four of the Divas on one stage.
The cast features:
• Whitney Houston portrayed by Jazmine with a mesmerizing tribute to the voice of a generation with the vocal prowess and passion that is the “Greatest Love of All”
• With her distinctive contralto singing voice, Cher, performed by Annika Starander Weaver, “turned back time” and made fans “Believe” in the music of this timeless diva all over again
• Lady Gaga was celebrated by Tierney Allen embodying all that is Mother Monster to show she was “Born This Way.”
Taking this show to the highest “Diva Level” is Las Vegas’ most famous Diva, Frank Marino, who returned as Celebrity Host with his portrayal of Joan Rivers, the pioneer of women in comedy.
“I am so excited to once again be part of Legends in Concert as it makes history in Las Vegas as being the Longest Running Show ever,” said Marino. “Their 40-year run has simultaneously coincided with my 39-year run as Las Vegas’s Longest Running Headliner proving that the art of celebrity impersonation is still alive and well in Sin City.”
The Divas captivated the packed house with their live vocals and stunning performances. The sold-out audience sang and danced along to celebrate the four-decade milestone.
To celebrate this special 40th anniversary engagement of “Legendary Divas” in Las Vegas at The Orleans Hotel and Casino June 26 through July 8, a special $40 ticket is available using code LIC40.
