Glitzy superstar CeeLo Green hits Vegas to channel his inner “Loberace.”
He’s sung with the Muppets, introduced the world to the flying piano, and filmed the video for “I Want You” at Caesars Palace surrounded by Bally’s Jubilee! showgirls. Now, CeeLo Green is getting ready to bring his imagination and creativity to Las Vegas with residency at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
But what exactly does the singer and talent coach of NBC’s The Voice have in store for fans coming to see “CeeLo Green is LOBERACE” in Planet Hollywood’s 1,400-seat showroom? He’s promising twisted magic, an outlandish wardrobe and sexy showgirls. It’s a show that borders on the “supernatural, surreal and the extraordinary,” he says.
Sounds perfect for Vegas. We asked CeeLo about the show and the city he keeps coming back to.
Who is “Loberace”? Loberace is an experience. It’s a party. It’s a visual, audio and emotional journey into my head.
You’re known for some over-the-top performances. What can fans expect? Over-the-top times TEN. With this show, I don’t have the constraints that I usually face when I do some of my other performances.
You mention that the show will be a “ride through the decades of colorful music.” Can you explain? I say that to let people know the show isn’t just about my music or the music I’ve done over the last eighteen years of my career. It’s about music I grew up to; music that I’ve always loved, by artists that I admire. It’s not what people may expect. It’s not a concert, it’s a show.
Do you have a favorite restaurant you visit or dish you have to have when you’re in Vegas? I love any place that does a great Chilean sea bass.
What’s the first thing you do when you arrive in Las Vegas? Check out what suite my manager has booked me. It’s really cool to see all the different types of suites. Some of them are sick.
