Gladys Knight Las Vegas is the newest addition to the line up of entertainment at the world-famous Tropicana Resort. Previously part of Gladys Knight & the Pips, the singer is best known for hits such as "Midnight Train to Georgia," "If I Were Your Woman," and "Settle." Gladys has won seven Grammy Awards and is commonly referred to as The Empress of Soul. She has been performing since the 1960s and has been a staple on the Las Vegas entertainment circuit since the late 1970s.
The new Gladys Knight at the Tropicana show is called A Mic and a Light. Produced by Freestyle Mac, the show is a new additon to the list of Las Vegas headliners, and it's set to turn heads and please crowds. She performs a set list of fan favorites, both old and new, accompanied by singers, dancers, and an eleven-piece band. Another highlight of the new Gladys Knight Las Vegas spectacle is that Merald "Bubba" Knight, an original member of the Pips, will be part of the show.
The Tropicana Resort underwent a large-scale renovation in 2010, redoing its rooms and suites, as well as other parts of the complex, and thus the venue has been perfectly tailored to the shows it will host—the Empress of Soul will perform at the newly named Gladys Knight Theatre. Previously known as the Tiffany Theatre, the Tropicana Las Vegas has dedicated the venue to its newest star in order to keep with the transformation the resort has been undergoing. The South Beach-inspired changes are being made to bring more energy and vibrancy to the hotel, and the new Gladys Knight Las Vegas show is an integral part in bringing these changes to life. Her R&B style and smooth vocals will greatly add to the atmosphere of one of Vegas' most popular accommodation options.
Once the show gets under way, Gladys Knight tickets will surely be a hot commodity. A Mic and a Light is scheduled to take place every Tuesday through Thursday at 8 pm and Fridays and Saturdays at 9 pm. Tickets range in price from $65 upward, depending on the seats and type of experience you are looking to have—both general admission and VIP experience Gladys Knight tickets are available. The benefits of the VIP tickets are that you get both a better seat and a VIP line pass.
It is best to book your show tickets in advance as Gladys Knight is sure to attract a devoted audience. If you’re looking to combine your trip to see the show with other things to do in Las Vegas, it’s best to look into vacation packages, which can help you save money on hotel rooms, as well as transportation and often meals or drinks. In some cases it’s even possible to combine tickets to multiple Las Vegas shows into one bundle. Although the duration of the new Gladys Knight Las Vegas show at the Tropicana Resort is unclear, she is set to perform for at least a few months. Those looking to see the new spectacular should make sure to head to Vegas soon in order to catch the new talk of the town.
