Tix Go On SALE TODAY! Dianna Ross Limited Run At The Venetian!

AEG Live and The Venetian Las Vegas announced a special nine-show engagement at The Venetian Theatre with world-renowned legend Diana Ross. The Essential Diana Ross: Some Memories Never Fade will perform April 1-18, 2015. Tickets go on sale Friday, January 30, at 10 a.m.

Diana Ross’ famed and remarkable career spanning almost five decades has included major awards and accolades, and music history milestones. One of the most prominent women in popular music history, Ross is inarguably a consummate performer and significant contributor to the world of pop culture music in the late 20th century.  

The legendary singer will perform nine show dates: April 1, 3, 4, 8, 10, 11, 15, 17, and 18

“Las Vegas attracts the biggest names in the world, so it is only fitting that one of the most remarkable entertainers of all time brings her talent to a uniquely intimate stage,” said John Nelson, senior vice president, AEG Live Las Vegas. “This limited engagement will allow audience members an unforgettable experience with a living legend.”

A unique presentation designed especially for The Venetian Theatre, The Essential Diana Ross: Some Memories Never Fade will highlight the original diva’s illustrious career that has spanned more than five decades. From Motown classics (“Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”) to pop favorites (“I’m Coming Out”) and heartfelt hits (“Endless Love”), the limited engagement production features a carefully curated set list covering Ross’ musical milestones. Set inside the intimate Venetian Theatre, audiences will feel as though they can “Reach Out and Touch” the singer, who Billboard named "Female Entertainer of the Century."

“The Venetian Las Vegas has established itself as a premier luxury destination, which includes some of the finest entertainment offerings on the Strip,” said John Caparella, president and chief operating officer for The Venetian, The Palazzo and Sands Expo.  “We are looking forward to adding to that reputation when Diana Ross steps onto the stage of The Venetian Theatre on April 1.”

Beginning in the ‘60s, as lead singer of the world-renowned group, The Supremes, Ross achieved the unprecedented feat of 12 number-one singles in the U.S. becoming the most successful American group in history and rivaled only by The Beatles for the position of the biggest hit group of that generation. Diana Ross went on to achieve six number-one singles as a solo artist amassing a total of 18 number-one hits. Diana Ross’ phenomenal music career is marked by chart and commercial successes. In the U.S. alone, to date, she has tallied 31 Top Ten singles and 14 Top Ten Albums selling over 100 million units around the globe. 

Career milestones include induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, The Songwriters Hall of Fame, National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (NARAS) Hero Award, NAACP Entertainer Award, Billboard’s Female Entertainer of the Century Award, The Soul Train Legend Award and International Lifetime Achievement at the World Music Awards. The icon is forever cemented in history with two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  “Stop! In The Name of Love,” “Where Did Our Love Go” and “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” have all been inducted into the NARAS Hall of Fame.  “Stop! In The Name of Love” and “You Can’t Hurry Love” are among The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s Songs that Shaped Rock & Roll. In February 2012, The National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences bestowed one of its highest honors to Ms. Ross by presenting to her the Grammy’s Lifetime Achievement Award.

Tickets, starting at $59.50 (plus applicable fees), go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. at any Venetian or Palazzo Box Office, online at or by calling (702) 414-9000 or (866) 641-7469.

Flow-Rider Pool Fun Coming To Planet Hollywood This Spring!

Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino is about to change the Las Vegas summer scene with the addition of the Strip’s first-ever FlowRider Wave-in-a-Box Double by FlowRider, Inc., set to make its pool debut Spring 2015. This new addition will have professional wave riders and novices alike hanging ten and testing their talents in a safe yet exhilarating environment.

With FlowRider’s waveform technology, riders should have no fear of wiping out as the surface is designed to absorb the energy of impacts.

The FlowRider Wave-in-a-Box Double is the newest addition to Planet Hollywood’s well-known pool scene, which features two separate pool decks, two pool bars, live DJs, 21 all-new cabanas with poolside bottle service, daybeds and a pool café.
