Living Legend Engelbert Humperdinck Films Special At Westgate Las Vegas

Legendary international superstar Engelbert Humperdinck was at the Westgate for three days last week filming segments for a documentary being produced about his life and his 50-year career. The handsome entertainer with the golden voice, who still tours the world playing to sold-out crowds, filmed scenes on the stage of the main showroom, where he was a major headliner attraction for nearly a decade when the hotel was the Las Vegas Hilton.

Engelbert also toured the Elvis Museum at the hotel and filmed a segment there as well. He and Elvis were good friends and they often attended each other's shows and spent time together backstage. Elvis confided to his bodyguard that Engelbert was "like the twin brother he had lost at birth." Indeed, the two bore a striking resemblance to each other and even dressed similarly on stage. But Engelbert had the unique hairstyle first -- he came on the music scene and gained recognition with his unusual name and his long black sideburns, the latter of which Elvis "stole" from Engelbert, which Engelbert enjoys teasing about today. The tour of the museum was very nostalgic for him and he enjoyed it immensely.

Engelbert just returned from a tour of England, Israel, and Belgium and he heads to Chile next week to perform.
