Five Decrepit Music Legends You Can See in Las Vegas
Las Vegas has a way of making us all feel like kids again! It’s an adult playground, after all.
So, it’s not surprise many aging music stars make their way to Vegas to show the world they’ve still got it. Here are five guys in their 60s you can catch in Las Vegas.
1. Alice Cooper
“The Godfather of Shock Rock” might be more appropriately called “The Grandfather of Shock Rock” these days, but whatever you call him, Alice Cooper (65) is coming to The Palms on Nov. 27, 2013.
2. Meat Loaf
Mr. Loaf (65) has brought his unique brand of belting to Planet Hollywood for 18 shows through Nov. 5, 2013. Meat Loaf’s performances are part of a larger series featuring rock royalty, “RockTellz & CockTails.”
3. Carlos Santana
Carlos Santana (66) may not be a great driver, but he certainly can wail on the guitar. He’s a resident performer at the House of Blues at Mandalay Bay.
4. Elton John
Elton John (66) continues to display his box office clout, packing them in at Caesars Palace as a resident headliner. Just remember, old guys can get cranky, so plan accordingly. Here’s a list of his upcoming shows.
5. Lou Gramm
His name might not be as recognizable as the other folks on this list, but Lou Gramm (63) is part of music’s elite, nevertheless. He was the lead singer of Foreigner, with a number of hits and legions of fans. Gramm will be appearing in “Raiding the Rock Vault” at LVH (formerly the Las Vegas Hilton), Oct. 18-22, 2013. Learn more about this show that brings together rock’s “Cocoon” club.
Bonus Old Guy: David Bowie
Nothing’s been confirmed, but rumors are swirling about David Bowie (66) coming to Las Vegas, at least according to our buddy, Norm Clarke, at the Las Vegas Review Journal.
Come see music greats as they desperately cling to their former glory!
Which, we’re thinking, would make a great tourism slogan for the Las Vegas Visitors and Convention Authority.
