Rated 5 out of 5 by Susieprivot This was an excellent show!
Wayne Newton is a Las Vegas icon. He was charming and fun. If you have any interest in the history of Las Vegas, this is the show for you! I was completely mesmerized and entertained, not to mention educated in the life and stardom of Mr. Las Vegas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LarryK A wonderful experience
Although he has virtually no voice left and barely sings, this is a marvelous visit with a most charming and interesting legend of show business. It is wonderful to hear about his life and career with great video clips and photos to enhance his wonderful recollections. Not sure if this show would appeal to anyone but his fans, but for those looking for the genuine, authentic old Las Vegas, it will be found here. He gives 110% ... this show billed at 80 minutes actually went on for more than 100 minutes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SGTsidster Excellant Show
Wayne is a showman of the highest quality. Interacts with the audience so well that you no sooner stop laughing, then you start again. Was great watching him dance along side Sammy Davis Jr. Wanted to see more of that with other performers. Plays the guitar & Violin as well or better than any top musician except Jack Benny of course. The meet & greet was my first ever. I'm 66 years old & it felt great to shake his hand & have my picture taken with a fine patriot as he is. Vegas needs more shows like this.

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.
