Gladys Knight to extend show
at Tropicana Las Vegas
Seven-time Grammy Award
winner Gladys Knight will be extending her special engagement at the newly
transformed Tropicana Las Vegas. Gladys Knight “A Mic and a Light”, which
showcases 90 minutes of fan favorites such as “Midnight Train to Georgia” and
“The Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me” as well as newer hits, was originally
scheduled to hold its final performance on September 3. Due to the show’s immense success, the
“Empress of Soul” will continue to entertain audiences Tuesdays through Sundays
at 8 p.m. through the end of the year.
“I am thrilled to be
extending at Tropicana Las Vegas through the end of the year. The joy we’ve had
performing at the Gladys Knight Theater over the past several months and the
overwhelming support from our fans led us to add these additional shows,” says
Knight. “Working in this showroom at Tropicana has been a dream come true for
me and I look forward to sharing this experience with many more audiences.”
“Gladys is one of the
greatest performers of all time, and we are excited that she and her team have
decided to extend their special engagement at our property. They have truly
become an important part of the Tropicana family,” said Melissa Steinberg, Vice
President of Casino Operations and Entertainment at Tropicana Las Vegas.
