Rated 2 out of 5 by Michael8762 I have no complaints with VEGAS.com but thought I was going to see a hour and a half of the performer.
The performer sang only4 songs. The rest of the time it was a Q&A of the artists experiences and accomplishments. The entertainer seems like a real nice guy, but I thought I was going to see a regular concert. I would not reccommend this concert to anyone. Unless of course you are a real big fan of the Entertainer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HouseGuy1 Far beyond expectations!!!
My wife and I decided to go to the show because Wayne Newton is a complete legend in Las Vegas. We expected to hear some classic songs and see a good show but we were pleasantly surprised by the spin that he put onto this event. It was so up close and personal The way he shared experiences that got him to where he is today, it was like being at a live documentary with tons of entertainment.
We have seen many shows and tons of concerts and both agree that nothing compares to the experience that we had at this one!
If you only have the time or money to do one show while visiting Vegas this one is a must!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marthaginca Wayne Newton is a Vegas icon! He is not to be missed!
It's clear that Wayne Newton does not take his fans for granted! You can tell he is truly appreciative of the folks that came out to listen to his songs, and hear his story! Do not miss this one!

Rated 4 out of 5 by digriz60 Great Retrospective of Mr. Las Vegas
Sure, he's a bit older now, and his voice isn't what it used to be. That's fine. The theater is intimate, he interacts with the crowd and still has a ton of energy.
It was very entertaining and funny! I'm 47, so he's a little before my time, but I had no idea of his history or his talents other than singing. He is very engaging, and plays a few instruments well.
Interspersed in the show are singing, answering questions, and showing short videos of when he was a child/teen performer. That, I was not familiar with.
Not only does he engage the audience, he actively encourages people to talk to him, shout out stuff (at appropriate times, of course) and crack jokes. He is slightly risque, but there were two kids in the audience, and the material was just fine, even if it had double or triple entendre. He worked very well with the kids and their parents, assuring them whatever he said, would sail comfortably over their little heads.
It's a solid hour and 45 minutes, and he genuinely seems happy to be there and performing again. If you want to see a last slice of Old Vegas, catch him now before he retires again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dabriguy Very good show!!
This was a very good show!
Up close for sure, Ther probably was less then 200 people who went!
Wayne took questions from the audience and it was a great look at his life and worth the money.
I can cross this off my bucket list now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by granseegirl Wayne Newton Up Close and Personal
This was hands down one of the best shows I have been to! Wayne was funny and really interacted with the crowd. Not only is he very talented with his voice but instruments as well. He took the time to answer questions and shared some really interesting moments in his life from the start to this day. The one thing that stood out the most to me was watching him and how much he enjoys his fans, he truly enjoys what he does and it shows. I got to meet Wayne after the show along with my mom (one of her life long dreams was to meet him) He was so kind and caring that you could feel it....A++++

Rated 2 out of 5 by OhioMom7 This show was a disappointment.
My husband and I saw Wayne about 40 years ago in Las Vegas and the show was really great. We thought we would like to see him again. He looks different (not just older, but different to an extent) and his voice sounds different. He didn't sing that much, but just talked about his life. There was a woman in the audience that kept yelling at him that she "loved" him and he would respond back. This was annoying during the show. We wish we didn't go after all. We would not recommend this show to anyone.
