Your pal and ours... MR. LAS VEGAS - also known as Wayne 'Fucking' Newton is back at Harrah's for an extended visit. Wayne, who apparently studies numerology in addition to the banjo, guitbox, piana, harmonicer and other Shenadoah delights, has scheduled his triumphant return to Las Vegas around what is becoming a sacred holiday - July 7, 2007 - yep 7/7/07.

So strap on yer feedbags of popcorn, fill up those yards o' beer, grab yer USO and RNC cards and head over to Harrah's for an evening of finger pickin' goodness with the one, the only - Wayne Fucking Newton.

Thanks to VT reader Clifford for the tip off!

According to the Harrah's website, he's booked there from May 1st-July 7th.

Exactly. I guess I wasn't clear enough. Thanks vespajet!

Wayne "Mr Las Vegas" Fucking Newton was born in Roanoke, Virginia. Every winter he became deathly ill and it wasn't until he was 7 years old that the doctors diagnosed him with asthma.
(from the book; Wayne Newton, Once Before I Go) "....Finally the doctors told my parents that if they wanted me to live, they had better get me to a dry climate. For my parents, it meant tearing up their roots and leaving everything they had known behind."
The family ended up in Phoenix (Uncle lived there) where Wayne's health immediately improved. Sadly, his father was unable to find work, and 7 weeks later they moved to Newark, Ohio (Aunt lived there) and bought a home, thinking Wayne was "cured". Sadly, they were forced to forfeit the home the following winter when Wayne became seriously ill again. Back to Phoenix they went.
When Wayne was 15 years old, he and his brother Jerry rode the bus from Phoenix to Las Vegas ($20 cash between them) and auditioned at the Fremont for Eddie Torres. They were booked to work the Fremont for 2 weeks, but ended up working 46 weeks.
...Well as you know, the rest is history.

That's my great moments in WFN history moment,
