Known as one of the hottest-selling touring acts in any genre, the trio also recently celebrated a major milestone of 10 million tickets sold, following a rousing year stacked of headlining shows.

Behind those statistics is an accomplishment more basic than numbers, more important than any trophy–for the past decade, the music of Rascal Flatts has been the soundtrack to countless lives. Songs like “These Days,” “Mayberry,” “What Hurts The Most,” “My Wish,” “Stand,” “Here,” “Here Comes Goodbye” and “Summer Nights” have soothed and uplifted, fired up, mellowed out and otherwise impacted millions.

AEG Live and The Venetian® Las Vegas Announce

The Essential Diana Ross: Some Memories Never Fade

at The Venetian Theatre

Diana Ross, named “Most Successful Female Vocalist of All Time,” to
take the stage for nine performances beginning Wednesday, April 1, at 8 p.m.

Tickets available Friday, January 30, at 10 a.m. at Venetian.com/DianaRoss

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 Venetian.com/DianaRoss or by calling (702) 414-9000 or (866) 641-7469.

The Colosseum at Caesars is Named Top Venue at 2011 Billboard Touring Awards

THE COLOSSEUM AT CAESARS PALACE NAMED TOP VENUE
AT 2011 BILLBOARD TOURING AWARDS

Sixth Consecutive Win for World-Class Venue

 

For the sixth consecutive year (dating back to 2005 when the category was first introduced), The Colosseum at Caesars Palace has been named Top Venue Under 5,000 seats at the recent 2011 Billboard Touring Awards.  The annual award was based on global box office numbers reported to Billboard Boxscore from Oct. 1, 2010, through Sept. 30, 2011.

 
The ongoing success of the world-class venue can be credited to the stellar entertainers that grace the stage of The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, and the distinctive artist residency model featuring the greatest entertainers in the world, including: Celine Dion, Elton John, Rod Stewart and Shania Twain (who begins her run on Dec. 1, 2012).
 
In 2011, The Colosseum at Caesars Palace was home to Cher’s sell-out run of the final shows of her three-year residency, (which culminated in February), along with the first year of 54 sold-out performances of Celine Dion’s triumphant return that began in March.  In August, Rod Stewart kicked off the first two runs of sell-out performances of his two-year residency of Rod Stewart: The Hits. and in September Elton John returned for his second residency at The Colosseum with the premiere of his sold-out run of The Million Dollar Piano.  
 
The Colosseum is booked and operated by AEG Live. “The past year has been very strong for The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.  In addition to opening productions with the newest resident performers-Celine Dion, Rod Stewart, Elton John- we also announced the addition of Shania Twain to the lineup which begins in December 2012,” said John Meglen, president and co-CEO of AEG Live/Concerts West. “This rotation along with presenting top-notch touring performers gives us the ability to offer an unforgettable entertainment experience to nearly every visitor to Las Vegas. Our ability to attract the biggest, most diverse group of international superstars is one of the reasons people love to visit The Colosseum.”

 
“Celine Dion had a triumphant return to The Colosseum, ushering in a whole new era of top-shelf entertainment for the venue and, frankly, the city of Las Vegas, “ added Gary Selesner, president of Caesars Palace. “Opening March 15, 2011, Celine’s first 20 shows grossed more than $14M, and we saw a ripple effect from those ticket sales by way of increased hotel revenue at Caesars Palace.”
 

Other entertainers who helped make The Colosseum at Caesars Palace a number-one venue in 2011 include Jerry Seinfeld, Luis Miguel, Jeff Dunham, Diana Ross, Leonard Cohen, Stevie Nicks, and Janet Jackson.
