The Show at Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa in my hometown of Rancho Mirage is on fire this winter season! I’ve had the ticket line on speed-dial for the past few years, ever since this great state-of-the-art performance venue opened, but even with that I had a hard time keeping up with all the great concert dates that have come along.
Lucky for me, I was just about first in line to get tickets for the great Dolly Parton, who will be performing in this 2000+ seat space on January 24, 2014. Although she sold out quickly, there are occasionally returned tickets, as well as a standby line. As one of the most honored country western performers on earth, she is sure to present a show that is as big a knock-out as she is!
And just as exciting is the breaking news that Liza Minnelli (daughter of the late, great Judy Garland, and half-sister of beautiful Palm Springs Valley local Lorna Luft) has been booked at The Show! She’ll be in the house on Saturday, March 22, 2014, performing some of her biggest show-stoppers from hits like “Cabaret,” “New York, New York,” and “The Act.” As a winner of all four major entertainment honors—the Emmy (“Liza with a Z”), the Oscar (“Cabaret”), the Tony (“The Act”) and the Grammy (for contributions and influences in the recording field), Liza gives a show that is sure to sell out swiftly. So don’t delay!
Other notables who’ll be performing over the coming months include Air Supply (February 14, 2014), Johnny Mathis (February 16, 2014), Ray Romano & Brad Garrett (March 21, 2014), and ZZ Top (April 4, 2014). Many concert-goers—locals and out-of-towners alike—opt to stay overnight in one of the very plush rooms of Agua Caliente the night of their show. It’s a great opportunity to extend the fun beyond the featured entertainment, and to take in some gaming in the casino, some superb cuisine (especially at my favorite, The Steakhouse), and some great cocktails “After The Show” on Fridays and Saturdays in WatersCafé.
But whatever you do, buy your tix early—especially for my old pal Liza. I’d hate for you to miss out. See you there!
