Anniversary events for shows in Las Vegas are a dime a dozen, but for entertainer Gordie Brown, they are ideal for amassing family, friends, and fans, if only to have an excuse to throw a party.
The longtime Las Vegas headliner will celebrate “Gordie at 1,740” on Thursday, August 20 at The Golden Nugget Las Vegas.
The ‘gold carpet’ event will toast Gordie’s “almost at 2,000” landmark number of performances at the iconic downtown hotel and casino, while also unveiling new impressions and new songs.
“Every show in Vegas, hopefully, reaches some sort of milestone, and more power to them,” said Gordie. “We just wanted an excuse to party.”
Gordie, who has performed in Las Vegas for more than 27 years, began headlining at The Golden Nugget Las Vegas in Feburary 2009 in the state-of-the-art theater now known as the Gordie Brown Showroom, following a North American tour with Celine Dion. A multitalented entertainer, Gordie brings to life iconic stars including Elvis Presley, Sammy Davis Jr., and Arnold Schwarzenegger, with his signature impressions alongside a five-piece live band.
A native of Montreal, Canada, Gordie moved to Las Vegas with the goal of working with fellow Canadians Paul Anka and Rich Little. The gamble paid off and before he knew it, he was opening for both Anka and Little. Gordie went on to work with other stars including Jay Leno, Louie Anderson, Kenny Rogers, Randy Travis, Barry Manilow, and Jerry Seinfeld, before opening up his own headlining show.
“Life’s too short to take yourself too seriously,” said Gordie. “At my show, we’re all about having a good time and a good laugh, and turning that into an unforgettable night. I only perform my 1,740th show once, so we might as well have a great time doing it.”
Gordie Brown performs Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday in the Gordie Brown Showroom at The Golden Nugget Las Vegas. Tickets to the show can be purchased at www.goldennugget.com or by calling (866) 946-5336.
