“Pin Up” to Close at Stratosphere After Four-Year Run

Despite the hotel’s statements to the contrary, it’s been confirmed “Pin Up” will close at Stratosphere on Mar. 4, 2017.

“Pin Up,” a topless revue featuring Claire Sinclair, has been at Stratosphere for four years.

We’d list all the things we like about “Pin Up,” but it’s hard.

The official announcement about the show closing appeared on the “Pin Up” Facebook page, stating, “It is never easy to deliver sad news, even if you know that you will have to face it one day. The entire ‘Pin Up’ production team is saddened to inform you that our 4th year anniversary show on March 4th, 2017 will be our last one. It was incredible for-year run with over 1,000 shows, many wonderful friendships and thousands of fans all over the world. Thanks to all of you, we made the world little sexier.”

We’ve always had a blog crush on Claire Sinclair, so we’re saddened to hear this news, despite the fact rumors had been swirling for some time about the show coming to an end.

We were lucky enough to chat with Claire Sinclair for the Vital Vegas Podcast, so take a listen.

Las Vegas is about to get a little less schwing. Thanks to “Pin Up” for the pic.

While Sinclair’s run in “Pin Up” is at an end, we’ll all be able to keep a collective eye on her via her Instagram account, perhaps the best thing to happen in Las Vegas since the invention of comps.

No official announcement has been made about the show replacing “Pin Up,” but it’s rumored to be “Men of the Strip” from Jeff Timmons, a founding member of 98 Degrees. We hear from a source close to that show it’s not landing at Stratosphere.

An unprecedented number of Las Vegas shows closed during 2016, and we hoped the carnage would end in 2017. Good going, Capitalism.

Shows tend to run their course in Las Vegas, even the ones starring someone as charming as Claire Sinclair, who we are completely open to consoling about “Pin Up” closing. We’re selfless like that.
