Grammy Award Winning singer/songwriter Cee Lo Green will be spending a few months performing in Las Vegas.
Cee Lo says his semi-permanent show, “Loberace,” will launch August 29 at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip, and is scheduled to run at least through the end of the year.
“The production will combine Cee Lo’s flamboyant sense of style and over-the-top creativity,” producers said in a statement, adding that the show “will be as inspired and visually alive as Cee Lo Green.”
Organizers say the show will include a musical journey through time, with Prince and the Rolling Stones tributes. “Mind-twisting magic and sexified showgirls” are also part of the planned extravaganza.
Green has become well-known for his soulful voice and wild costumes and is currently a coach on NBC’s hit singing competition show “The Voice.”
Green told the Las Vegas Review-Journal he sees himself continuing Sin City entertainment tradition.
“I love the city. I can’t wait to be a part of it. I can’t wait to be officially there,” Green said in an interview. “From this generation I would just like to be able to carry on, and pick up the torch and continue to make Vegas a place to be.”
