Gladys Knight to Perform at Tropicana Las Vegas Beginning April 5
Seven-time Grammy Award-winning performer Gladys Knight will headline in a special engagement at the newly transformed Tropicana Las Vegas, beginning Tuesday, April 5, 2011. 

The show, produced by Freestyle Mac, will take place in the newly named Gladys Knight Theater, formerly known as the Tiffany Theater. Knight will showcase her fan favorites, such as “Midnight Train to Georgia,” as well as newer hits including her December 2010 single “Settle.” She will be joined by four singers and dancers during the show, alongside an 11-piece band. Merald “Bubba” Knight, one of the original members of the Pips, will be featured as part of Knight’s show, as well.

“I’m thrilled to be returning to the Las Vegas Strip and am very happy to be coming back home. It’s always been a dream of mine to have my own showroom and I’m excited to showcase songs ranging from both my greatest hits to my new album,” said Knight.

She will be releasing a new album in late spring or early summer. She has teamed up again with Producer Randy Jackson, whom she previously worked with on her album released in 2000, At Last.

“We are extremely excited to add Gladys Knight as part of our overall transformation of Tropicana Las Vegas,” says Tom McCartney, President and Chief Operating Officer of Tropicana Las Vegas. “We believe her intimate and up close performance fits in perfectly with our strategy of exceeding our guest’s expectations. We are confident our guests will leave grateful to have spent an intimate evening with one of the greatest performers of all time.”

The Empress of Soul will be welcomed home by the Tropicana for a multi-month engagement. The show can be seen Tuesday through Thursday at 8 p.m. and Friday and Saturday at 9 p.m., beginning April 5. All ages are welcome when accompanied by an adult. There will also be three preview performances held March 31, April 1 and April 2. Tickets for these preview performances are available for the public to purchase as well.

Tickets go on sale on Monday, March 14 and will be available for $65 and $75 plus tax and applicable fees. VIP packages are also available for $95 plus tax and applicable fees. Tickets can be purchased through the Tropicana Box Office by calling (702) 739-2411 or by visiting
