Planet Hollywood Welcomes "Loberace" a CeeLo Green Vegas Show

CeeLo Green Presents LOBERACE

The new Planet Hollywood headliner show Loberace is the brainchild of famed American singer CeeLo Green (born Thomas DeCarlo Callaway May 30, 1974). The new show is a tribute to American pianist Liberace. On March 27, the Las Vegas Strip was halted briefly for the arrival of CeeLo on a truck with a burning piano. Twitter was aflutter with photos of eye-witnesses to the madness, as he arrived and cemented his hand prints in clay, flanked by the Jubilee Dancers from nearby Bally's Hotel.

Loberace features CeeLo Green as the ringmaster who'll take fans through decades of music covers, including Prince and the Rolling Stones, as well as his own original music. Let's face it, CeeLo has had a few hits like "F*%ck You" and "Crazy", the latter which was produced by his duo Gnarls Barkley. He is most recently known for his role on NBC's "The Voice", and he's also famous for working on Santana's "Supernatural" album (with Lauryn Hill), in addition to his work with Atlanta Hip Hop group the Goodie Mob. In this new show created just for Las Vegas, flamboyancy is promised, as is great vocal talent, while the rest is unknown.

How will the 1400 capacity Planet Hollywood Showroom be shared? "Peepshow"  is still running (in year five) and currently starring Coco Austin (Ice-T Loves Coco) where reality TV show star Holly Madison previously starred. Peepshow is now offering early time slots (dark Wednesdays) at 8, 9:30, and 10pm, and tickets begin at $66.

The newest PH show Loberace will play four nights a week Wed. - Fri. at 11pm and Sat. at the stroke of midnight. Tickets start at $54.00.  Get group tix for ten or more via EntertainmentGroupSales@Caesars.com, or order single tickets at 1-866-574-3851. Now showing.
