Dean Martin Hologram Live At The __Blank___

Las Vegas and The Rat Pack are truly one thing. For whatever reason - the voice, the eyes, the vulnerable machismo inherent in getting, losing and drinking your way to the other side of a relationship that has run afoul - Frank Sinatra is the marquee name of the group. I posit that Sammy Davis Jr. truly the best all-around entertainer of the group - a phenomenal singer, amazing performer, dancer, comedian and actor of the mall.

But Dean Martin.... oh Dean. He was the life of the party. The funniest, wittiest, warmest guy in the room, the best technical singer of the Rat Pack and an actor so deft that people truly believed he was a complete drunkard, kind of like MikeE, except that Mike's stories aren't fabricated.

Live After Death, Live at Budokan, Alive II, Frampton Comes Alive, The Song Remains The Same... Dean Martin Live at the Sands 1964.

Now, 20 years after his passing, Dean Martin is returning to the stage in his beloved Las Vegas. Via Vanity Fair.

Immortalized as the King of Cool, Martin will be resurrected in high definition by Hologram USA so that new audiences can experience the effortlessly cool charmer as he performs a number of his timeless hits.

Hologram USA also claims Whitney Houston, Liberace, Roy Orbison, Tammy Wynette, Jackie Wilson, Bing Crosby, Billie Holiday, Wilson Pickett, Redd Foxx, Nat "King" Cole, Buddy Holly, Patsy Cline, Al Jolson and ANDY KAUFMAN as part of their stable of "talent."

As of yet, there is no specific Las Vegas location announced for the "Dean Martin Hologram Residency." Any guesses?

Big thanks to VT superfriend rsuave for the tweet tip!


Comments & Discussion:

I will be there opening night. I really hope this doesn't become vaporware.

Andy Kaufman??
I think maybe Tony Clifton might work downtown. On one of those outdoor stages on Fremont.

I thought that someone announced that Elvis was returning in hologram form this year. If Elvis ain't making the trip, I have a hard time believing Deano will.

seems like a perfect fit for the Encore Players Club. Those Millenials will identify with Deano and his "good times. laissez-faire" attitude, plus they love all things high tech - and what screams high tech more than a hologram!?!

Sahara and the Riv are gone. What's the most classic Vegas (Strip) thing we have left?
The original gaming pit at Caesars?
Tropicana's showroom?
Flamingo's neon?

Or do you go with something new that has a classic feel, like Cosmo's Chandelier Bar or Bellagio's casino floor?

I would go with the Tropicana.

Yeah, Dean's hangouts are gone, so where to place this? Just glad to see some more recognition given to Dean...his legacy is still kept alive in his hometown of Steubenville, OH...in fact, my high school band instructor is his fan club president (that is just too weird).
