Fahrenheit Yo/11 : Ronstadt/Moore Duet booked at Aladdin?

Forget Cirque du Soleil, Celine Dion or Wayne Newton, Linda Ronstadt --and her new duet partner, Michael Moore--could soon be the biggest thing on the Vegas strip.

Just days after getting booted from the Aladdin Hotel Casino for praising Moore as "patriot" and dedicating her encore song, "Desperado," to him, Ronstadt is already entertaining offers of a comeback.

On Wednesday, one of the prospective new owners of the Aladdin, Robert Earl, issued a statement of support for Ronstadt.

"We respect artists' creativity and support their rights to express themselves," Earl said. "We were very sorry to hear about the unfortunate circumstances of this past Saturday night and want to make it clear that Planet Hollywood has never, in our 13 year history, restricted any artists' right to free speech and we will continue with that policy once we take ownership.

"Upon the assumption of ownership, and with a new management team in place, we would like to offer the use of the Theatre of Performing Arts to Linda Ronstadt for a second concert and further to take Michael Moore up on his offer to join her on stage to introduce her and sing a song," Earl continued. The group Earl represents (a division of Planet Hollywood) expects to take control of the hotel as early as September.
