I was invited to attend the opening night of Legends In Concert, a showcase that features an acclaimed set of celebrity tribute acts from Las Vegas.
Legends In Concert is the longest running show in Las Vegas. It has been lighting-up stages for over 34 years! The performers use their own singing voices and are supported by a five piece live band, two backing singers and a troupe of eight energetic dancers.
According to the Legends In Concert website, they offer over 80 different tribute acts. For the 2018 Melbourne season, the show included tributes to Michael Jackson, Dolly Parton, Lionel Richie, Cher, Elvis Presley, Tom Jones, Whitey Houston and Freddie Mercury.
The cast are exquisite and the resemblance between the performers and the legends that they are portraying is just uncanny! The attention to detail in the casts’ physical appearance, mannerisms and vocal quality is impressive. I can only imagine how hard these performers have worked to perfect their acts.
The highlight of the show for me is a jaw-droopingly good tribute to Michael Jackson. Just like Jackson, the performer is a true triple threat. He has an incredible singing voice, his monologues are just like watching Jackson speak, and his dancing is outstanding.
Special mentions also need to go to the performers who portray Dolly Parton and Cher. In addition to looking the part, they have stunning singing voices.
As this was my first time seeing a tribute show of this calibre, I was blown-away by the costumes, hair-styling, wigs and make-up. The quality is outstanding and the creative teams need to be congratulated for their attention to detail.
The band and back-up singers are amazing. They are a talented, tight-knit group and sound incredible from start to finish.
The dancers are some of the most energetic performers I have ever seen! They perform beautifully throughout the show in a variety of dance styles. Not to mention that they must have at least 20 quick costume changes!
Legends In Concert is playing at The Palms at Crown until the 28th of January. Tickets are selling fast so book now to avoid missing out.
