I haven't heard anything lately about Wayne Newton.

What's he up to these days?

He ever get that jet out of his yard at Casa Shenandoah?

Is he performing much any more?

He was headlining a show recently, but it was mostly him looking back at his career, not singing.

His voice is gone but the show Bill was discussing at Ballyís was still filled with a nostalgic look at his life with video and stories. And a few verses of songs. He also reached a deal to stay at Shenandoah and you can get deals on tours there on Groupon cheap.

He had a hell of a life and even almost banged Ellen Griswold.

It looks like you can still book a tour:

https://www.casadeshenandoah.com/

And that page still shows the jet.

I live down the block from Shenandoah and am amazed how popular it is, tourwise.

Comedian George Wallace was billed "The New Mr. Las Vegas". (This was some years ago and I think he's since retired.) I always felt this title was undeserved. All he could do is hold a microphone and tell jokes. And his material was mundane and unsophisticated. Wayne Newton is very talented musically and has mastered many instruments.

But, unfortunately, Wayne Newton has been involved in many lawsuits and counter-suits. Anyone that would ever enter into a contract with him should be cautioned.

Ugh. Maybe once we can keep that out of it. But Iím sure Wayne did bang his share of starlets along the way. And he was in the adventures of Ford Fairlane, Mr Rock & Roll detective.

Hey, he even had a role in a James Bond flick.
