ThrowBackThursday - Las Vegas Hilton

ThrowBackThursday Post- Looking back on a blog post of recent yesteryear (and bringing it over from the old website for further reference).

"That's alright, mama,...that's alright with me...."

So goes the song running through my head and softly warming up my vocal cords during load-in and soundcheck on Wednesday.  Why, you might be asking? 

I had this little show I was doing with Hotel California on the huge LAS VEGAS HILTON STAGE FOR GOODNESS SAKE!  (Catch my enthusiasm?)
 

Yes, it was the very place where Elvis (you know, "Presley"?) appeared in the days of old.













 

This is where Barry Manilow had his "house gig" as well, before moving to the Paris.

A quick search on YouTube will reveal the vast number of show biz greats that have graced this stage.

Back to the present, below are some moments I captured on my less-than-stellar camera phone in which you can actually distinguish some resemblance of a photograph.  More may be on the way when I have in my possession the pictures taken by Kevin our sound man with his iPhone.
 
This is the last remaining piece of original stage Elvis performed on (Was next to the water cooler)
 
 
No need to take stairs to the stage!  Did Elvis ride is way to work here?   Mmmm, I suppose so.
 
 
Thanks to Barry for getting things set up for us!
 
"Looks like we made iiiiit""

Thankyuveramuch!
