Mike Tyson Las Vegas
March 5, 2012 by staff
Mike Tyson Las Vegas, Former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson’s Las Vegas stage show should come as no surprise. For a half-century, the biggest names in entertainment have headlined their own shows in Las Vegas: Sinatra and Elvis; Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr.; Wayne Newton and Tom Jones; Liza Minnelli, Barry Manilow, Bette Midler and Celine Dion; Liberace and Danny Gans; Siegfried & Roy and Penn & Teller.
And now, Mike Tyson. Tyson doing a live variety show might seem as likely as Henry Kissinger hosting a rodeo. But the man who once threw punches at the MGM Grand Garden Arena will now tell stories at the MGM Grand Hollywood Theatre.
“Mike Tyson: UNDISPUTED TRUTH — Live on Stage” is scheduled for a one-week run April 13-18. Of course, if every show sells out, maybe they will extend the run. On the other hand, if Tyson knocks himself out in 91 seconds, it might be a one-night stand.
Tickets in the 740-seat theater start at $99.99, with “special VIP packages” available for $499.99. For that price, you should get a piece of Evander Holyfield’s ear.
The show is billed as a multimedia, no-holds-barred presentation of his life story, with an unfiltered Tyson peeling back layers of triumph and tragedy.
Why is he doing it?
Uh, he needs the money — despite career boxing earnings exceeding $300 million, Tyson declared bankruptcy in 2003. Coming soon to Caesars Palace: “Allen Iverson: DISPUTED TRUTH — Live on Stage.” Naturally, Iverson will hold no rehearsals.
Actually, Tyson, 45, might be rather engaging in a theatrical setting. In a city full of characters, Tyson is as eerily fascinating as any famous person in Las Vegas lore, other than, I suppose, Howard Hughes, whose entire life was a one-man show.
Besides, “Menopause the Musical” has been a Las Vegas staple at Luxor since 2006, so why not “ ‘Iron Mike’: Midlife Crisis”?
