The Las Vegas Strip Brings Another Rock Legend

Las Vegas has had a reputation for hosting the world’s top performers for nearly 80 years, when pianist Liberace began residencies in Sin City in the 1940s.

Liberace continued his residencies for over 40 years, ending with his final Las Vegas performance in August 1986 at Caesars Palace on the Strip, six months before his death in February 1987. Frank Sinatra began Las Vegas residencies in the 1950s and would bring the Rat Pack to the Strip in the 1960s.

Many big-name artists would follow with performances on the Strip, including the famous Elvis Presley residencies that began in 1969. Magicians Siegfried and Roy were legendary performers on the Strip from the 1990s and Cirque du Soleil has produced several different shows over the years starting in 1993 with Mystery.
