    Fans of pop superstar Mariah Carey, who debuts her Las Vegas residency at the Colosseum in Caesars Palace from May 6-24 and again July 8-26, crashed the resort’s website Wednesday after she encouraged fans to read her cover story of its magazine Vegas Player.

    Mariah has sold more than 200 million records worldwide and surpassed Elvis Presley as the top solo artist with the most No. 1 singles in America.

    Fans by the thousands caused the website to freeze and then shut down. Caesars officials confirmed that for hours afterward when it went back online, it was experiencing a “very slow” situation and that they will have to reconfigure it for possible future overload.

    ‘Duck Commander Musical’ begins previews at Rio; grand opening April 15

    The official red carpet gala premiere of “Duck Commander Musical” isn’t until next Wednesday at the Rio, but today is its first run of previews. Broadway veterans and Las Vegas locals have joined together to celebrate the Robertson family’s rags-to-riches story aired on A&E’s “Duck Dynasty.”

    The Louisiana bayou has been transported to the Las Vegas stage in a 90-minute show with Southern spirit and down to Earth humor from some of America’s most famous rednecks. Upcoming Caesars Palace headliner Mariah Carey’s former husband, record producer Tommy Mottola, is one of the producers of the new musical.

    Executives at Westgate Las Vegas have given Jennifer Romas and her “Sexxy” showgirls their first “indefinite” contract renewal.

    “We are very happy with the show and look forward to its continued success,” Westgate COO Mark Waltrip told me.

    Jennifer originally launched the sexy dance adult cabaret show just before New Year’s with three weeks’ notice.

    Sixty years of the Riviera: Making a ‘Splash’ with Las Vegas’ first water show

    The Riviera moves closer and closer to its final days. The doors shut to the public on Monday, May 4. To date, we have looked at Liberace, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Dolly Parton and Pia Zadora’s connection with the hotel as it ends its 60-year run as a legendary Las Vegas icon.

    Time now to turn the spotlight on producer Jeff Kutash as we continue our look back at some of the highlights, fun facts, celebrity sightings and rarely seen photographs that helped build the Strip’s first high-rise hotel and casino.

    Week five of RivFacts honors the long-running aquatic show “Splash.” Premiering June 22, 1985, “Splash” was billed as an “aquacade” of music and dance.

    BLUE MAN GROUP LAUNCHES REVAMPED VERSION OF CLASSIC PRODUCTION
    BY: Susan Stappleton/Las Vegas Magazine

    Back in 1987, three friends put together a comedic performance art piece that started with small shows in New York clubs and grew into a full-fledged production four years later housed in its own showroom, the 300-seat Astor Place Theatre. Blue Man Group still performs there to this day.

    For Las Vegas, something much more dramatic is required in a 1,200-seat space at the Monte Carlo. The men in blue just revamped their show to stay fresh with the times, retooling about half of the acts, adding new vignettes and removing others. Only two pieces remain the same, says Michael Dahlen, one of the two creative directors of Blue Man Group.

    “We’re constantly looking at our shows and thinking, ‘What’s next?’ It’s a real luxury as an organization to do that,” Dahlen says. “I just don’t think Blue Man Group survives if that’s not part of our DNA.”

    He says the whole 105-minute show flows better with these upgraded acts. Crazier instruments and snazzier lighting add to the dramatic way the new show unfolds.

    Enterprise!

    I agree with Mario! No Fox! If I'd wanted to rent a car with holes worn through the carpets, I could have slipped my kid $10 and used his car! The "offsite"

    Welllll.....

    So the reason I have been absent is that I opened a new business a couple of years ago, so my social (and travel) life was definitely put on the back

    Problems with Budget RAC?

    After many rentals through Alamo with no issues the last couple of times the best rate I was able to get was through Dollar. I've used Dollar many times
