Rumors have been circulating around Vegas for months that CeeLo Green would have a residency on the Strip soon. Today the rumors were confirmed.
Planet Hollywood Resort will be the home to his new show, “CeeLo Green Presents LOBERACE.” Hot off an exhilarating Super Bowl halftime show performance with Madonna and the premiere of the second season of NBC’s “The Voice,” CeeLo’s Las Vegas resident show will bring even more star power to one of the Strip’s hottest properties. The show debuts Wednesday, Aug. 29, in the resort’s 1,400-seat showroom. He will perform 28 shows this year.
CeeLo serves as the conductor/ringmaster “LOBERACE.” He plans to take guests on a ride through decades of music covering everyone from Prince to Blue Magic to The Rolling Stones, new wave to disco and beyond. Visually, the production will combine CeeLo’s flamboyant sense of style and over-the-top creativity, magnified and intensified, with his soulful voice covering some of his favorite music, as well as original songs.
Part dance party, part live intimate concert, this energetic, exotic show will be as inspired and visually alive as CeeLo Green. There will be mind-twisting magic and sexified showgirls, and the larger-than-life wardrobe and impressive stage design will out-glam and out-clever anything you’ve seen from this Muppet-ized, sequin-styled international Lady Killer to date.
Shows will be held Thursdays and Fridays at 11 p.m. and Saturdays at midnight, with additional shows at 11 p.m. on Wednesdays.
