The Vegas Golden Knights fan base has embraced the Vegas born Johnson as their national anthem singer, allowing a 7-3 record in the NHL Stanley Cup playoffs. Like the Vegas Golden Knights, Johnson has become a community favorite.

Guests can see Johnson, or Pippo, as he’s known on the Venetian waterways, Monday through Friday at The Venetian’s outdoor gondola attraction, which runs from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. daily. Schedule subject to change.
