Rocker Rod Stewart isn’t saying goodbye to his Caesars Palace residency when he wraps his fourth year at the Colosseum this month.
The two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame musician who is readying the release of his 30th solo studio album, “Another Country,” this fall confirmed this morning that he’s signing on for a fifth year on the Strip.
AEG Live and Caesars Entertainment today announced a Spring 2016 run of “Rod Stewart: The Hits” at Caesars, with tickets for the first nine concerts of his extended 2016 residency on sale Friday at 10 a.m.
Las Vegas Club closing begins Sunday, may finish Thursday
For five years, owners of The D Las Vegas talked to officials with the Tamares Group, expressly GM Jonathan Jossel, about buying the Las Vegas Club.

That shutdown is happening sooner than expected. Though Derek Stevens said today that it would be 60 days before the Las Vegas Club would close, Jossel said plans are in place for the hotel’s table games to close by Sunday night, and the full casino would cease operations by Wednesday night, pending approval by the state Gaming Commission.

The Kats Report this week focuses on “Million Dollar Quartet,” the musical at Harrah’s that is celebrating its 1,000th performance Tuesday night. We met the cast in January 2013 during their first full rehearsal.
Since that initial assembly of the band and actors, we’ve grown quite fond of the crew that delivers the story of the night of Dec. 4, 1956, when Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry
