Piff thinks out of the box, Heidi doesn’t; Town individuals anticipate Route 91 return

Friday, Oct. 16, 2015|5:14 p.m.

. The Kats Report Bureau at this writing is an enclave of peacefulness simply around the corner from Mayweather Boxing Club.

All I’ll state about these particular training centers is those inside are apt to punch it out, and hug it out.

Onward …

– The city’s preferred breath of fresh air, Piff the Magic Dragon, is returning to the Vegas phase in “America’s Got Talent Live” from Thursday through Oct. 24 at World Hollywood’s PH Display room.

The program’s Season 10 champion, ventriloquist Paul Zerdin, headings the production, and finalist comic Drew Lynch likewise is set up to carry out at the former “Peepshow” venue.

Under his given name of Jon van der Put, Piff and his Chihuahua sidekick, Mr. Piffles, appeared on Friday’s episode of “Kats With the Meal.” He stated he did not want to win the show, as his dour and deadpan character plays far more successfully as a loser than a winner of the show.

“There is absolutely nothing about my character that screams ‘champ,'” Van der Put said throughout the show. “As a comedian, it’s far much better for me to have lost the program.”

Van der Put said his magic may have been a bit too persuading for at least one of the judges. After one of his techniques, in which Mr. Piffles is seemingly stuffed in a little box, Heidi Klum whined to him, “I believe it’s terrible to put a dog in a box like that.”

“You do know what I do for a living?” Van der Put replied, not bothering to add that the dog was not really trapped in a box for the whole trick. Fortunately, for him and for Klum, he didn’t saw Mr. Piffles in half …

– On the subject of magic, stuff being cut and assembled again …

The relaunch of Criss Angel’s “The Supernaturalists” is official: The show goes back to the stage Nov. 11-15 at Fox Theater at Foxwoods Gambling establishment Resort (or Felix’s Funhouse, so called by me for hotel President and CEO Felix Rappaport). The show goes back to the vast home in Connecticut on Dec 16-20.

“The Supernaturalists” halted its U.S. trip today after a stop Tuesday and Wednesday in Toledo, Ohio, during which Angel appeared onstage rather than in video from Las Vegas. He joined the tour in the days after among the 9 magicians in the lineup, Krystyn Lambert, left due to the fact that of an Achilles’ tendon tear, which was the reason given for the tour’s truncation. Knocked out were dates through Pennsylvania; Washington D.C.; Baton Rouge, La.; and San Antonio and Austin, Texas.

Angel likewise is performing in “The Supernaturalists” reveals at Foxwoods, where his live program “Mindfreak Live” did sold-out company this year. No word on whether Krystyn (her singular stage name) will be ready to go back to the phase then, or if Angel is to summon a new female magician– and there is one, Chloe Crawford, who leaps to mind– to the cast.

– The passion for a step by Route 91 Harvest country festival from Las Vegas Town to Las Vegas Celebration grounds for its October 2016 return appears premature. MGM Resorts authorities, expressly Senior Vice President of Home entertainment Chris Baldizan, have actually envisioned the festival’s step north from the 15-acre Town to the 50-acre Las Vegas Celebration Grounds (that figure counts the entire area, not simply exactly what has actually been used for Rock in Rio).

Route 91 Harvest’s ticket sales did show a significant improvement over 2014, offering out at 25,000 fans per night over three nights on a tightly packed parcel throughout from Luxor and Mandalay Bay. The durable sales caused the sensible expectation that the next celebration would be provided some space to breathe and grow at the larger Celebration Grounds venue on the Strip and Sahara Opportunity.

However more just recently, in the days following the 2nd Wine Enhanced Celebration last weekend (which drew a decent 5,000 on Friday night and 7,000 Saturday), word is that Route 91 marketer Live Country prefers returning once again to the Town.

The Route 91 choices are easy: Grow the festival at its current ticket rate with the characteristically strong lineup and move it north, improving attendance by a few thousand and adjusting the celebration area appropriately (more than 15 acres and less than 50 acres). Or, keep the ticket sales capped at this year’s level and increase ticket costs, therefore enhancing revenue and keeping the show on a space that, many festival-goers concur, is more viscerally enticing than the Celebration Grounds.

The Town’s excellent view of the resorts on the south end of the Strip has ended up being into a significant illustration component for the Village (look into my groovy Instagram images of the Town view during shows there). Unless Live Nation and MGM Resorts specifically agree to move the show north, anticipate the exact same sort of Path 91 Harvest celebration next year– and to pay more for that experience.

– “Alice– A Steampunk Rock Performance” blew up Brooklyn Bowl on Tuesday night, and not unexpectedly. Production founder Anne Martinez provided on her guarantee of innovative aerial acts, a cigarette smoking pre-show (much of that aerial) carrying the “Alice” theme, and even impressive LED complements from the bowling lanes on house left.

In terms of quality and amount, the turnout was fantastic, about 360 paid with tickets set at $30 a shot, $15 a ticket for residents and an industry-heavy audience on hand.

Martinez and co-lead Ashley Fuller made it over simply after 11 p.m. from their respective programs (Martinez in “50 Shades! A Parody” and Fuller in “Jubilee,” both at Bally’s).

Martinez its still “in talks” (and truly, aren’t all of us?) with the bookers of the space and is positive she can parlay Tuesday’s performance into a more recurring role at the Bowl. A residency has actually always been the objective. The trick is to discover the tipping point where “Alice” can pull in the break-even numbers each break– and Martinez wants a for-real, sit-down, nightly residency at such a location as Brooklyn Bowl. The skill, dedication and execution of the entertainers is indisputable. Discovering an audience of Vegas visitors that “gets” this musically muscular, steam-punk rock show is the next job.

– Word is infiltrating the scene about an intriguing location being developed at New York-New York. This is a convention area with entertainment choices, a seating capability of 300 or so, in the unused area atop Tom’s Urban facing the hotel’s sports book. It is to be open in early 2016, with no company plan of programming yet identified.

– A terrific moment Wednesday night from Gordie Brown’s media performance at Golden Nugget: I took my seat in the display room while carrying a glass that was formerly loadeded with carbonated water. As I settled in, the person next to me dropped a $1 costs atop the ice in that glass.

“Here,” stated funny legend Marty Allen, cracking smart at age 90. “You’ve made it.”

State this for Allen: He still has the shtick. But he no longer has his first dollar …

Dusk settles in throughout the Route 91 Harvest Country Music Fest on Saturday, Oct. 3, 2015, at Las Vegas Village.

The Kats Report Bureau at this writing is again Route 91 Harvest C and w Fest at Las Vegas Village. Huge operation. As Hilary Rodham Clinton once stated, it takes, like, a whole community … an area … a village, if you will, to grow something this important to complete health.

Earlier we were discussing the future of this event, 102.7 The Country radio character Rick Kelly and me. It’s likely movinged towards the Las Vegas Resort Festival Grounds for 2016. The concept we had was to turn the Town into the auxiliary phase for Celebration Grounds and ship the crowd of 25,000 approximately backward and forward up the Strip

At the Town on the south end of the Strip, you could catch, state, Jason Aldean at the Town. Then you would be transported north for, say, some Blake Shelton action.

I see absolutely no logistical concerns with this idea.

Onward:

– Some reliable yet unofficial word around the scene is that Phish has actually been in talk with appear at a celebration in Las Vegas in 2016. This would be an outdoor celebration, and know that Rock in Rio is not carrying out on the Strip in 2016. So begin working that a person out …

– Friday night’s show-closing efficiencies by Thomas Rhett and Florida Georgia Line additionally sealed the vast array of music carried out at this festival. Rhett in fact carried out a cover of “Uptown Funk” that had lots of in the crowd two-stepping (or two-staggering, given the alcohol intake out right here).

FGL, the duo of Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard, is likewise dexterous. The frequent speakers and winners from the Academy of Country Music Awards (to name a few) at MGM Grand have actually blown up in practically 3 years, from when they were the type of rising act you ‘d catch at the peripheral Next From Nashville phase. In a medley of songs they proclaim to have grown up with (and who’s to suggest?), they sampled “Forgot About Dre” by Dr. Dre, “We Dem Boyz” by Wiz Kalifa and “This Is How We Do It” by Montell Jordan.

Dee Jay Silver’s between-sets music, important to the experience as the time lapse in between acts is set at 50 minutes, has actually showcased the likes of Aerosmith and AC/DC. If Mr. Silver appears with “2112” by Rush, by God, I will rush the phase.

– Quick mathematics on attendance: This year’s event is drawing about 25,000 fans per show, but it’s not precise to state 75,000 people are participating in the celebration. Same as last year: Many are holding one wristband covering numerous days and nights. And a lot of fans are from out of the location.

Rhett carried out an unscientific however likely on-target ballot of the crowd, asking, “Who here lives in Las Vegas?” followed by, “Who doesn’t live in Las Vegas?” The clear bulk, perhaps three-quarters, were visitors. They all require rooms, too, which is why authorities right here are promoting the occasion as a civic taking place and not simply an MGM Resorts production.

– Crazy moment from Friday night, as streamers were blasted from cannons at the front of the stage near completion of the FGL performance. The colorful cluster of paper was instantly caught by the wind blowing from the west and skyrocketed into the apartment building directly to the east of the Village parcel. Those houses were the source of sound grievances during last year’s event.

Carol-Lyn Liddle participates in the “Divorce Celebration: Las Vegas!” grand-opening celebration Thursday, March 13, 2014, at Bally’s.

The Kats Report Bureau at this writing is amongst several thousand c and w fans at Path 91 Harvest Country Music Fest at Las Vegas Town.

This makes us, naturally, the Town individuals.

Carrying out to fantastic response as the sun goes down is A Thousand Horses, who earlier today were calling out, “My kingdom for a thousand horses,” as the band’s bus broke down en path to Route 91. Thus, they missed their 3 p.m. start and were saved by some swift setup work by Gloriana, who went on an hour ahead of their scheduled phase appearance. That meant Gloriana opened the festival at 3 p.m. in a boot-scootin’ shuffle.

“They conserved our ass!” is how A Thousand Horses frontman Zach Brown expressed his gratitude.

At the moment, A Thousand Horses is thumping through that Black Crowes country traditional “Tough to Deal with,” first recorded by country super star Otis Redding. The point exists is a great deal of crossover in these nation festivals. Somebody will play AC/DC by weekend’s end, if they have not currently.

Quickly will certainly be Easton Corbin, Thomas Rhett and Florida Georgia Line, and I ‘d wager my boots that at least one of the FGL kids will be putting on a black T-shirt you ‘d purchase 6 to a pack at Target and matching jeans. I know that due to the fact that they just walked past us in the media space. Howdy, boys …

Meantime, we wait for Corbin (I think) as “Rock and Roll All Night (And Celebration Every Day)” by KISS shrieks over the festival stereo. Let’s rock it out somewhere else:

– Guitar fantastic Tracii Weapons’ go back to “Raiding the Rock Vault” next week is not the only shift in the lineup of the indefatigable rock extravaganza at Tropicana Theater. Out is Carol-Lyn Liddle-Puffer, now duel-hyphenated vocalist after her current marriage to Las Vegas musician and Red Rock Harley-Davidson bike sales rep Patrick Puffer.

A fan favorite from the minute she hit the stage with the show 2 years ago (her take of Heart’s “Alone” was always a skyrocketing effort), Liddle-Puffer was release by Sir Harry Cowell for factors she states are uncertain. Sir Harry states everything is under control– and truly, everything is constantly under control with “RRV,” whose uncanny capability to survive is surpassed only by Keith Richards in the rock universe.

More than 3 years considering that opening at LVH, the program advances with Starship vocalist Stephanie Calvert (who previously swapped looks with Liddle-Puffer) and Meat Loaf backing vocalist Cian Coey.

An epilogue: In what has ended up being a celebration of “RRV” alumni, the ceremony pairing of Patrick and Carol-Lynn was officiated by “Rock Vault” author and former band member John Payne. It’s not just rock ‘n’ roll, but I like it.

Pitbull at Axis at World Hollywood
Pitbull kicks off his seven-show Launch slideshow “

– A day prior to breaking ground at his charter school, Slam!, in Henderson, Pitbull appeared at “Absinthe” on Thursday night. He did not show up alone: In tow was a posse of backing artists, dancers and assorted members of his production team (including his hairstylist; not actually). He hustled over to the Spiegeltent throughout an off night from his blazing Axis theater residency.

The Cuban-born rap specialist had his picture taken with numerous of these folks, specifically tap-tap-tap twins Sean and John and Melody Sweets. We require more of Pitbull in this city. Seriously.

– Paul Scally’s test drive of Grand Laughs at Lounge at the Palms filled the space Thursday night, which was not a surprise given Scally’s popularity amongst his fellow Las Vegas performers. Geechy Individual and Kathleen Dunbar were the Las Vegas club vets who helped enhance the program. Where Scally goes from right here is anybody’s guess, and he is to talk about a future at the Palms with that hotel’s entertainment director, Billy Conn.

. The lounge has actually hosted funny prior to with the Playboy Funny Club in the days when the hotel was in partnership with Playboy Enterprises. Funny is an easy fill, and Scally is an excellent host with a long list of comics he can reserve in a regular club format.

Jason Egan

– Humanity supervisor Steve Sterling states he cannot actually comment (his words) on reports that the act is leaving Sands Display room for Harrah’s. This is one step from “we don’t react to reports,” and far from a rejection that the affable Aussies are vacating the Venetian.

– Jason Egan typically works himself to the bone in the days leading to the opening of Fright Dome, which commemorated its 13th opening night tonight at Circus Circus. He has actually dropped to 135 pounds during the run-up to opening the tourist attraction simply since he is commonly working 19-hour days.

However today Egan is sitting at 160, a middleweight, and says, “I am caring for myself and trying not to look like a zombie.” No, he has actors for that– 430 stars, in fact. “This has actually gotten outrageous,” says Egan, now 37, who still manages to look as youthful as he did when we fulfilled a years back.

– Lydia Ansel, late of Zowie Bowie, is performing her first solo gig in VegasVille at 9:30 p.m. Monday at Rockhouse at the Venetian. Hers is the most recent effort in which timeless instrumentation is combined with EDM tracks and dance beats and such. A member of Rod Stewart’s “Splendid Seven” lineup of very violinists at the Colosseum, Ansel has been establishing a solo act for numerous weeks.

She had a refresher course in performing in Las Vegas with the Zowie Bowie performances at Rocks Lounge at Red Rock Resort, on Fremont Street and Sundown Station’s Club Madrid. This brand-new job deserves a look-see.
