Matt Goss heads to Caesars Palace-March 12


Presently billed as Matt Goss Live from Caesars Palace Produced by Robin Antin — , "In the Gossy Room at Cleopatra's Barge inside Caesars Palace," the 70-minute show will carry on Caesars' tradition of late-night entertainment with 10 p.m. performances Friday and Saturday. Over the years Caesars' various stages have seen the likes of Tom Jones, Sammy Davis Jr., Tony Bennett, Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra and, more recently, Celine Dion, Luis Miguel, Bette Midler and Cher. Goss' own show is slated to debut March 12.Until recently, Goss had been performing since September 2009 in the Lounge at the Palms, an intimate 210-seat theater right off the casino, which has itself been home to the duo Zowie Bowie and Santa Fe and the Fat City Horns every Monday night at 10:30. Goss' run there concluded January 23rd.In anticipation of Goss' March 12 debut, Cleopatra's Barge, the venerable party lounge that opened in the 1970s will get a face-lift, including new red carpeting, red chairs and spiffy new red curtains to corral some of the sound.While the ticket price has gone up (from $25 plus tax to $40 including tax, on sale at the Colosseum box office this Saturday), Goss' performance venue has gotten even more intimate; the newly renovated barge will hold just 165 seats at first.
