Frank Marino will guest host Legends in Concert as comedic legend Joan Rivers September 11- November 19 at Tropicana Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS (August 5, 2019) – For the first time in history, three Legends come together for an incredible engagement this fall. The longest-running headliner in Las Vegas history, Frank Marino, joins the longest-running production show, Legends in Concert in its legendary home at Tropicana Las Vegas.
“I’m truly honored to be joining the cast of Legends in Concert for a limited engagement. I think it’s the perfect marriage of Las Vegas’s longest running show and the longest running headliner. I’m simply ecstatic to be going from Diva status to a Legend inside the world famous iconic Tropicana Las Vegas where I’ll be retiring the Joan Rivers character from my act. As Joan would say “Can We Talk? This is the last time you’ll be able to see me play tribute to the legendary first lady of comedy.”
Starting September 11, audiences will enjoy the hilarious comedy of Las Vegas legend Frank Marino as he guest host’s Legends in Concert as comedic legend Joan Rivers. Frank Marino will be joined by a cast of sensational new tribute artists singing the biggest hits of recorded music. Fans will be taken into a “Bohemian Rhapsody” with Fernando Castro’s mesmerizing tribute to the one and only Freddie Mercury and the iconic catalogue of Queen; moved far from the “Shallow” with Tierney Allen’s breathtaking homage to Lady Gaga, and transported to the 80s with Jill Burke’s stunning recreation of Pat Benatar’s “Love is a Battlefield.” Elvis also returns to the Legends in Concert Theater with hunk of “Burnin’ Love” Matt Lewis and his beloved portrayal of The King, Elvis Presley.
“Since its debut at Tropicana Las Vegas, Legends in Concert has been a hit amongst our locals and guests on property,” said Aaron Rosenthal, General Manager of Tropicana Las Vegas. “We are absolutely thrilled to welcome Las Vegas legend, Frank Marino in the new tribute show this Fall season.”
