His 23-year run impersonating Joan Rivers and anchoring “A Night at La Cage” ended in 2009, six years prior to the Riviera closed. Now Marino’s “Divas Las Vegas” drag program has actually closed suddenly after nearly 9 years at the Linq. The abrupt ending came by the weekend with the last show running June 26 and no official factor has actually been provided; Caesars Home entertainment, operator of the Linq, would only mention that the business and Marino “have mutually consented to close the long-running show at the Linq.” I haven’t been able to talk to Marino yet however it’s a safe presumption that the Vegas veteran will be searching for a brand-new place. “Divas” had actually been sharing the Mat Franco Theater at the Linq with Mat Franco, the magician who won season nine of “America’s Got Talent.”

Another long-running Strip program– the current longevity champ, in fact, at 35 years and counting– is making some changes to celebrate its anniversary. “Legends in Show” at the Flamingo has a fresh set of acts launching today and continuing through September 9. Tribute artists will represent Michael Jackson, Tina Turner, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and, for the very first time ever in this show, Jon Bon Jovi and Bob Marley.
