 graceland

 

 

On the 59th anniversary of Elvis Presley’s first Las Vegas performance, Graceland is opening the doors to a multi-faceted, authentic Elvis experience that showcases the man, the performer and the music that revolutionized popular culture around the world.“Graceland Presents ELVIS: The Exhibition – The Show – The Experience” is now open at Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino, the same hotel where Elvis performed more than 600 record-breaking, sold-out shows between 1969 and 1976 when it was the International Hotel and then Las Vegas Hilton.

 

Priscilla Presley and Lisa Marie Presley presided over a formal “blue suede” ribbon-cutting ceremony to unveil their personal treasures from the family archives, from rarely seen artifacts including Elvis’ personal television remote from his Graceland bedroom to Lisa Marie’s baby shoes. Priscilla served as the matron of honor for the first wedding in Elvis Presley’s Graceland Wedding Chapel, and tonight, she and Lisa Marie will hold a VIP red carpet gala for the debut of the “Elvis Experience” musical production that embodies the spirit of the king himself.

 

“Just think, it was 59 years ago today that Elvis performed his first show in Las Vegas,” said Priscilla Presley. “Elvis loved Las Vegas and he loved his fans – he would be the first to welcome you to this great exhibition of his life. Lisa and I are so happy to share these wonderful artifacts from our family with you and are thrilled to bring the authentic Elvis back to Las Vegas for the first time in 40 years.”

 

FIRST PERMANENT ELVIS EXHIBITION OUTSIDE OF GRACELAND

The first-ever permanent Elvis exhibition outside of Graceland encompasses more than 28,000 square feet and includes hundreds of artifacts from the Presley family’s treasured Graceland Archives. The exhibition takes visitors on an unprecedented journey through Elvis’ life and career, beginning with his early days in Tupelo, Mississippi through his first recording session in Memphis, rise to fame, Hollywood career, life at Graceland, the Las Vegas years and more. Graceland-produced videos immerse guests in the experience, concluding with a 26-minute retrospective film featuring Elvis’ greatest performances. Select artifacts will be rotated regularly with artifacts from the Graceland Archives to ensure the exhibit is constantly evolving and remains fresh. The exhibition is open seven days a week from 10 am to 10 pm.  Tickets are priced at $22 plus taxes and fees, and are available for purchase at Graceland.com/Vegas.

 

Exhibition Highlights:

  • Tupelo and Memphis. This collection of artifacts follows Elvis’ humble beginnings in Tupelo, Mississippi to his family’s move to Memphis, where Elvis’ discovery of gospel blues would influence his music and drive his rock & roll sound. Guests can peruse family portraits; the Presley family bible; Elvis’ 1950 and 1952 high school yearbooks, and graduation tassel; his mother Gladys’ poodle purse, dress shoes and social security card; family loan papers; and paystubs from Elvis’ first job as a delivery truck driver for Crown Electric.

 

  • Elvis Mania. In 1956, Elvis released his first album on the RCA recording label and appeared on a variety of nationally televised shows, including the Ed Sullivan show. This is the same year that Elvis first graced the silver screen in his acting debut, “Love Me Tender,” and had a No. 1 hit by the same name. The Elvis Mania exhibit documents this rise to fame including personal copies of his first singles on the Sun record label,1955 RCA contract, a variety of Elvis Presley collectibles, his custom leather guitar case, the gold record for his eponymous first album, and wardrobe pieces from “Jailhouse Rock,” which was released in 1957.

 

  • Elvis in the Army. From 1958 to 1960, Elvis took a break from his singing and acting career and proudly served his country n the U.S. Army. This marks a particularly poignant time in his life, as he met his future wife – Priscilla Beaulieu – while stationed in Germany. Guests in this exhibit see Elvis’ army fatigues, fan letters, a check written to Moulin Rouge from his time on leave in Paris, and iconic photos of his famous military haircut at Fort Chaffee, Arkansas.

 

  • At the young age of 22, Elvis purchased his first home where he would live with his mother, father and grandmother. A 17,000-square-foot property sitting on 13 acres, Graceland was a place where Elvis could relax and get away from his busy life as a singer and actor. Later in life, Priscilla and Elvis would marry and raise their daughter Lisa Marie at Graceland, a home Elvis vowed to never sell. Today, Graceland is visited by hundreds of thousands of people every year. At the Las Vegas exhibit one area that showcases Elvis’ Memphis home allows guests to see baby Lisa Marie’s footprints and baby shoes, a silver tray etched with Elvis and Priscilla’s photo on their wedding day, their wedding china and more.

 

  • Elvis in Hollywood. Between 1958and 1968, Elvis left live performance touring to serve in the U.S. Army and then focus on his movie career, starring in 31 feature films – such as “Jailhouse Rock,” “King Creole,” “Viva Las Vegas” and “Blue Hawaii” – and two theatrical musical documentaries, including Golden Globe winner “Elvis on Tour.”  This exhibit features a collection of scripts, movie posters, a pair of coveralls worn in “Viva Las Vegas,” his bomber jacket from “It Happened at the World’s Fair” and more.

 

  • Elvis in Las Vegas. For Elvis’ first stint in Las Vegas at the New Frontier in April 1956, Colonel Parker billed him as the “Atomic-Powered Singer.” This title would prove true as Elvis signed a deal with the International Hotel in 1969 and became the reigning king of live entertainment in Las Vegas, breaking all box office records for the city. Guests exploring Elvis’ Las Vegas history can see iconic stage costumes from Elvis’ live performances, Priscilla’s dress from Elvis’ opening night at the International Hotel, the suit Elvis wore when signing his 1969 contract, and never-before-displayed advertisements placed by Parker throughout the city from bus stops to billboards. Of particular note is the gold-plated belt encrusted with diamonds, rubies and sapphires that Elvis received in 1969 for breaking Las Vegas breaking box office records and later wore for a meeting with President Nixon in the Oval Office; and a contract written by Parker on a table cloth – complete with coffee stains – when owners of the International Hotel agreed to initial terms on Elvis’ long-term engagement.

 

  • Elvis on the Road. Even before he became the king of rock & roll, Elvis loved anything with a motor that moved fast. This would become a theme in his life especially after he achieved fame. It’s estimated that Elvis purchased more than 200 cars – some for family and friends, others for strangers and dozens for himself – including Cadillacs, Rolls Royces, Mercedes and Harley Davidson motorcycles. Elvis was often behind the wheel driving his band members for early tours and cross-country trips. Guests to this exhibit can view cars from Elvis’ collection, including a 1957 Harley Davidson motorcycle, 1962 Lincoln Continental and the1971 prototype Stutz Blackhawk delivered to Elvis at the International Hotel.

 

  • 1968 Comeback Special. After an eight-year hiatus from live musical performances, Elvis took to the stage once again for a concert taped on NBC’s Burbank lot dubbed the “1968 Comeback Special.” Elvis reenergized his singing career performing a collection of classic hits and new material for the TV special, which was NBC’s highest rated show of the year, priming Elvis for his Las Vegas run. The exhibit space documenting this performance includes Elvis’ iconic “If I Can Dream” white suit, and the blue chair used in the sit-down jam sessions in the special.

 

ELVIS PRESLEY’S GRACELAND WEDDING CHAPEL

Elvis Presley’s Graceland Wedding Chapel at the Westgate is the first chapel outside of Graceland to be operated by Elvis Presley Enterprises. Couples can be joined together in an atmosphere of southern hospitality unique to the Graceland experience.

 

Winners of a nationwide contest by NBC’s Today Show, Kaycee Satava and Cameron Baker, were the first couple to be married at Elvis Presley’s Graceland Wedding Chapel the morning of April 23, with Priscilla Presley serving as matron of honor. Kaycee became an Elvis fan as a child, when she would listen to his music and watch his movies as she took medication for a health condition that forced her to be immobile for long periods of time.

 

Wedding and vow renewal packages for Elvis Presley’s Graceland Wedding Chapel have been specially designed to bring the authentic and memorable Graceland wedding experience to Las Vegas. For information on booking the chapel for a wedding or vow renewal ceremony, visit Graceland.com/Vegas.

 

 

ELVIS EXPERIENCE LIVE MUSICAL PRODUCTION

The newly renamed and renovated Elvis Presley Theater at the International Showroom is now featuring the critically acclaimed “Elvis Experience,” produced by LCQ Productions, on the very stage where Elvis performed for millions of guests during his record-breaking, seven-year stint from 1969 through 1976. The theater has been restored to have the same look and feel it had when Elvis performed in this historic showroom.

 

Elvis Experience is a large-scale production replicating one of Elvis’ legendary Las Vegas shows, starring actor Martin Fontaine and featuring 24 musicians and eight choir members portraying the original musicians and artists on stage with Elvis.  Elvis Experience performs Tuesdays through Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are on sale now and start at $49 plus taxes and fees. Following this limited engagement that will end May 30, the property will feature other limited-run, Graceland-produced live shows in The Elvis Presley Theater.

 

Joel Weinshanker, Managing Partner of Graceland Holdings, LLC, stated, “In a country without royalty, there has truly only been, and continues to be, one king – Elvis Presley. And now in Las Vegas, there is only one place to see the real thing, at the Westgate Resort & Casino.” He continued, “I can promise each and every visitor to our Elvis exhibition, live shows and chapel, an experience that will make them want to come back time and time again, as well as take a trip to Memphis to visit the one and only Graceland.”

The scheduled undercard will also showcase top-notch boxing talent, including WBC Women’s Lightweight Champion Ava Knight and local Las Vegas boxers.

Fantastic Entertainment and Platinum Entertainment have joined forces to promote this fight night at the Westgate Las Vegas. Platinum Entertainment, one of the premier boxing promoters in Las Vegas, will keep fans entertained throughout the night with ENTROBOX, which is a combination of heart pounding boxing action and musical performances on the very stage where Elvis Presley and many Las Vegas legends have performed.

This is the first time that the Westgate Las Vegas will host a live professional boxing event since Westgate Resorts acquired the Las Vegas landmark last July. The Westgate Theater has a rich boxing history. It was this very venue where Mike Tyson became the youngest heavyweight champion of the world on November 22, 1986, and where Leon Spinks upset Muhammad Ali in a title fight on February 15, 1978.

Now, championship boxing makes its triumphant return to the Westgate Theater.

The weigh-in and press conference will take place April 10, 2015, at 4:00pm at the Shimmer Cabaret inside Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino.

Main Event

The main event will feature Zab “Super” Judah, former five time world champion (light welterweight and welterweight divisions). With a record of 42 wins (29 knockouts) against nine losses, Judah will face Ghana’s Yakubu Amidu who brings a record of 21 wins (19 knockouts) against six losses.

Co-Main Event

The co-main event presents WBC UNSBC Champion Jesus “Chuy” Gutierrez. Gutierrez will put his perfect record (14-0 with six knockouts) and WBC Title Belt on the line when he faces challenger James Lester.

Undercard

The action-packed undercard includes heavyweight contender Chazz Witherspoon, nephew of former heavyweight champion Tim Witherspoon, WBC Women’s Lightweight Champion Ava Knight, and Joe Judah, brother of Zab Judah. Las Vegas local fighters will round out the rest of this exciting card.

Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino Introduces New Asian Cuisine Concept, Silk Road Noodle Bar

Restaurant brings the East to the West through the Fusion of Asian Flavors


Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino announces the debut of the Silk Road Noodle Bar, a new Asian-food concept inspired by the world-famous Silk Road Trade Route.

The Silk Road Noodle Bar combines Eastern culinary styles to offer an array of authentic and contemporary Asian dishes. Open nightly from 5:30 p.m. until 10:30 p.m., Silk Road Noodle Bar is a casual 156-seat eatery with a private dining area that can accommodate up to 38 guests. The restaurant overlooks the gardens in Westgate’s Benihana Village and provides a unique and exotic setting.

“This exciting venture shares its philosophy with the historic Silk Road Trade Route by honoring a cultural interaction through a vibrant menu,” says Chef Alex Irlandes. “We feature several different Asian cooking styles, such as Japanese Ramen Noodle, Chinese Rice Noodle, and Vietnamese Pho, and blend a variety of Asian ingredients like Shishito peppers, Wagyu beef, Szechuan spice, and plum glaze.”

Featured menu items are the Wagyu Beef Pho, thin slices of tender Wagyu beef served in a clear spiced beef broth; Special Roast Duck, a slow roasted duck prepared in a savory broth with fresh Asian vegetables; XO Shrimp & Scallop, a wok preparation tossed in a spicy XO luxury sauce with asparagus; Five Flavor Chicken, a wok stir-fried chicken dish with Asian flair vegetables mixed with a blended spice and chili Szechuan sauce.

For those looking for vegetable-only options, Silk Road Noodle Bar offers several dishes including the Vegetable Delight and Vegetable Earth Pot.

“The Silk Road Noodle Bar is just one of the many exciting additions here at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino,” says David Siegel, CEO of Westgate Resorts. “This new feature restaurant represents our vision and goals for the property, which include preserving its history while moving forward with innovative concepts.”

The partnership marks the next step in the advancement of the SuperContest and the progression of sports betting in America.

Last year’s winners took home nearly $750,000 and the SuperContest is anticipating that they could have their first million-dollar winner in the near future.

The satellite tournaments will operate on a unique points system developed by Gamblino, so no currency is ever exchanged. This feature makes the app legal across the U.S. and provides players the thrill of placing a bet without the financial risk.

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 40 YEARS, ELVIS IS BACK IN THE BUILDING

Graceland Presents the First, Permanent Elvis Exhibition
Featuring Hundreds of Artifacts Never Before Displayed Outside of Graceland

Live Elvis-Themed Entertainment Shows in Historic Showroom
Where Elvis Performed Over 600 Sold-out Shows

Set to Debut at Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino in April 2015




 Elvis Presley’s Graceland and Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino announced today that they will bring the authentic Elvis Presley back to Las Vegas for the first time in 40 years. “Graceland Presents ELVIS: The Exhibition – The Show – The Experience” will include an expansive, new permanent exhibition featuring hundreds of artifacts never before displayed outside of Graceland, and live entertainment shows that celebrate the life and legacy of Elvis Presley. Graceland Holdings LLC Managing Partner Joel Weinshanker and Westgate Resorts CEO David Siegel together made the historic announcement that Elvis will be back in the building, and unveiled specific details of the upcoming exhibition and entertainment, which are scheduled to debut April 23, 2015. The press conference took place on the 46th anniversary of Elvis’ first press event at the construction site of the same venue, then known as the International Hotel, where Elvis performed over 600 record-breaking, sold-out shows.

The first-ever permanent Graceland exhibition outside of Memphis will encompass over 28,000 square feet and include hundreds of artifacts from the Presley family’s treasured Graceland Archives, showcasing the man, the performer and the music that revolutionized popular culture around the world. Visitors will experience an unprecedented journey through Elvis’ life and career, beginning with his early days in Tupelo, Miss., through his first recording session in Memphis, rise to fame, Hollywood career, life at Graceland, the Las Vegas years and more. Graceland-produced videos will immerse guests in the experience, concluding with a 26-minute retrospective film featuring Elvis’ greatest performances.

Some of the rare artifacts include Elvis’ high school yearbooks, his first Gold Album, his 1957 Harley Davidson motorcycle, a 1962 Lincoln Continental, 1971 Stutz Blackhawk, jewelry and iconic stage wear from Elvis’ live performances, including the first outfit worn on stage for his first concert at the International Hotel in 1969. Select artifacts will be rotated regularly with artifacts in the Graceland Archives, to keep the exhibit constantly evolving and fresh. The exhibition will be open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and tickets are priced at $22 plus taxes and fees, and available for purchase now.

The newly renamed and renovated Elvis Presley International Showroom will present Elvis-themed live shows for limited engagement runs on the very stage where Elvis performed for millions of guests during his record-breaking, seven-year stint from 1969 through 1976. The debut show will be “The Elvis Experience,” a large-scale production replicating one of Elvis’ legendary Las Vegas shows, starring actor Martin Fontaine and featuring 24 musicians and eight choir members portraying the original musicians and artists on stage with Elvis. The Elvis Experience is scheduled to open with the exhibition on April 23 and perform Tuesdays through Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are on sale now and start at $49 plus taxes and fees. After this limited engagement, the property will feature other limited-run, Graceland-produced live shows in the Elvis Presley International Showroom.

Another exciting feature will be the new, “Elvis Presley’s Graceland Wedding Chapel” which will be the first-ever wedding chapel in Las Vegas to be operated by Elvis Presley Enterprises.  Additional information on the chapel and special packages will be announced in March. The chapel is also scheduled to open on April 23.

The grand opening of the exhibition, live show and wedding chapel will be marked with a star-studded celebration, with Priscilla Presley joining the roster of VIPs and celebrities on the red carpet. Tickets for the exclusive opening celebration and opening weekend are on sale now.

“Elvis is synonymous with Las Vegas and this property, so we are tremendously excited to have this new attraction and live show here to entertain Las Vegas visitors,” said David Siegel, CEO of Westgate Resorts. “It is a true honor to join forces with Elvis Presley’s Graceland to bring Elvis to the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino. We are thrilled to have Elvis back in the building.”

“After a 40 year absence, it’s time for the authentic Elvis Presley to return to Las Vegas,” stated Joel Weinshanker, Managing Partner of Graceland Holdings LLC. “Elvis redefined live entertainment in Las Vegas, so there’s no better location for this new venture than the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino, the very site where more people saw Elvis perform live than anywhere else in the world,” Weinshanker said.  “The extensive exhibition, live shows and wedding chapel will together create an unprecedented Elvis experience for visitors.”

Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino Announces Las Vegas’ Newest Topless Review, Sexxy

westgate

Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino Announces
Las Vegas’ Newest Topless Review, Sexxy

Show features talented local headliner, dancer and choreographer Jennifer Romas


Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino is proud to announce the addition of Las Vegas’ newest topless review appropriately titled, “Sexxy.” Suggesting show-goers leave their inhibitions at the door, the show features the talented Jennifer Romas and will debut on January 4 inside the 300-seat Shimmer Cabaret.

Sexxy will take audience members through a journey of sensual, sexual, fun and enticing vignettes that incorporates the top ten most popular erotic fantasies. The show will encompass all eras of music, appealing to both men and women of all ages. Dressed in tantalizing costumes, the cast of seven highly trained female dancers will come into the audience for an interactive guest experience. The show boasts a shock element not seen in other topless review shows, as well as a few other surprises that will keep customers both entertained and captivated.

Sexxy will arouse a standing ovation in one way…or another,” said Jennifer Romas, creator, producer, choreographer and star of Sexxy. “The show is “sexxy,” sassy with a bit of edge and is sure to please everyone. My cast is amazing…they are brilliant and “sexxy” in their own right.”

With more than 30 years of dancing experience, Romas got her start as a gymnast. The former Minnesota State Floor Champion received a dance scholarship to work with the world-renowned Gus Giordano Dance School in Chicago where she later toured and taught for the company. Romas has been featured on numerous national television shows including NBC’s America’s Got Talent and VH-1’s Rock of Love, and performed as a lead dancer in Striptease The Show, Monster Circus, Splash and ICANDY Burlesque. Romas has also had the opportunity to work for big screen films such as Sony’s Think Like a Man Too, and most recently had the distinct honor of choreographing for pop-superstar Britney Spears. She is currently the solo dancer in Purple Reign: THE Prince Tribute Show, also performing at Westgate’s Shimmer Cabaret, and is the owner of JRR Enterprises LV.

“Westgate is committed to appealing to a wide variety of guests through our diverse line up of entertainment options,” said Rick White, Vice President of Entertainment at Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino. “In a city where topless entertainment is prevalent, we believe Sexxy will distinguish itself as a must-see show of this type in Las Vegas.”

Sexxy debuts Sunday, January 4 and will perform through Thursday, January 8 for the first week only. After that, the show can be seen nightly at 11 p.m., dark Monday and Tuesday. Tickets start at $29.95 for general admission and $39.95 for VIP admission. Guests must be 21 years of age or older.

Effective the week of January 12, 2015, Westgate will have a new show schedule that will reflect the following changes:

·     The King starring Trent Carlini: 7:00 p.m., dark on Tuesdays

·     Purple Reign: THE Prince Tribute Show: 8:45 p.m., dark Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays

·     Sexxy: 11:00 p.m., dark Mondays and Tuesdays

New Restaurant, Sid’s Cafe, to Open at Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino on December 17

High-end cafe pays homage to owner David Siegel’s father, Sid Siegel

 

Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino announces the opening of Sid’s Cafe, named after owner, David Siegel’s father, Sid Siegel. The restaurant, offering a creative approach to homestyle cooking, is scheduled to open on Wednesday, December 17 at 5 p.m.

Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, Sid’s Cafe is a 200-seat, eatery in the heart of the casino. The restaurant is awash in elegance, offering large marble columns and rich tones of warm gold and brown, as it sits in what was once was the casino’s former High Limit room. In addition to the ambience, Sid’s boasts attentive service and large plates of freshly prepared food. The restaurant’s slogan states that “we treat everyone like a high roller.”

“My father would come to Las Vegas twice a month from Florida and loved how he was always treated like a high roller,” said David Siegel, CEO of Westgate Resorts. “Everyone knew his name and catered to his every need which made him feel important. At Sid’s, everyone will be treated with the same level of customer service that my father received.”

Menu options range from appetizers, salads, burgers, sandwiches, main plates and desserts. Chicken Lollipops, tender chicken lollipops deep-fried and tossed in your choice of sauces; The Best Chopped Italian Salad in Vegas, made with finely chopped greens mixed with sliced salami, diced turkey breast, and mozzarella cheese, tossed in a signature herb-mustard parmesan dressing; New York Reuben Burger, grilled tender sliced pastrami, crisp sauerkraut, sliced Swiss cheese, and thousand island dressing, all topped on a signature blend burger between two thick cut slices of Jewish rye; North Shore Lobster Roll, tender lobster tossed in just the right blend of spice and enough mayo, served on a butter toasted roll; Mom’s Meatloaf and Mashed, homemade meatloaf made with roasted peppers and onions. For dessert, guests have many options including a tribute to “The King” himself with The Elvis Sandwich, made with peanut butter, grape jelly, sliced bananas all battered and fried.
