LAS VEGAS (Aug 11, 2016) – The Weekend in Vegas is a new entertainment-news program that focuses on the latest destination happenings in Las Vegas each weekend. The show takes place in front of a live audience at The LINQ Promenade in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip with the iconic High Roller, the world’s tallest observation wheel, as its backdrop. Jeff Civillico, headliner at Flamingo Las Vegas, is the show’s host. The Weekend covers all facets of Las Vegas – music, food, shows, nightlife, art, charity events, fashion and more. While much of the show is filmed at The LINQ Promenade, a variety of Vegas experiences are covered both on and off The Strip. Segments include the “Lucky 7,” seven best bets for the weekend in Vegas, the LiveNation “Music Minute,” the “60-Second Wedding,” the “Taste of Vegas” restaurant spotlight, the “Give a Darn” Las-Vegas charity feature, as well as celebrity interviews, and national and emerging artist musical performances.
The stage for The Weekend in Vegas is an attraction in itself. A shipping container has been repurposed into a portable two-story studio and is placed on top of The LINQ Promenade fountains each week with the assistance of a crane. The lower stage features guest musicians, celebrity performers, and interactive games for the live audience. Upstairs, The Weekend house band entertains the crowd. Audience members who come to the show in person have a chance to be on TV and win prizes including free drinks, show tickets, and even a cruise.
“Since we’re in the Entertainment Capital of the World, we knew we had to create a show to highlight all the great things happening in this city,” said Executive Producer Gary Harmon. “The Weekend in Vegas captures red carpets, celebrity sightings, concerts, shows, restaurant and nightclub openings, and brings the Vegas experience to our viewers around the world.”
“The LINQ Promenade is excited to partner with ISE Entertainment for the production of The Weekend in Vegas,” said Shaun Swanger, vice president and general manager of The LINQ and High Roller. “Our property offers a unique blend of dining, retail and entertainment options along with the world’s tallest observation wheel at 550 feet, making it the perfect backdrop for this entertainment-news show.”
The show officially launches on Thursday, August 18th with a red carpet at The LINQ Promenade fountain at 8 p.m., and the show’s taping at 9 p.m. Beloved entertainer and Flamingo Las Vegas headliner Olivia Newton-John is scheduled to appear on the show. Venetian headliners Human Nature will perform songs from their new hit show “Jukebox.
Tapings will continue every Thursday following at The LINQ Promenade fountain from 9 to 11 p.m. A 30-minute version of the show airs every weekend on KTNV, the Las Vegas ABC affiliate owned by SCRIPPS BROADCASTING HOLDINGS, LLC. The full-length 60-minute version of the show streams online at Vegas.com’s Facebook page every Thursday at 6 p.m. PT. Clips of the show can also be viewed in-room by guests staying at Caesars Entertainment properties, and in taxis through Taxi TV. The show’s sponsors include Vegas.com, LiveNation, and Brooklyn Bowl.
