It’s rather ironic that the City of Sin is one of the greatest places to celebrate Christmas and other faith-based holidays. Bosom-baring showgirls adorned in tinsel, bare-chested Santas on Fremont Street, and an ocean of alcohol-infused yuletide cocktails are yours to enjoy…along with every other Las Vegas indulgence.

Many of our resident shows roll out special holiday editions, giving fans a reason to return in what is typically considered the off-season.

Two years ago, BAT OUT OF HELL star Travis Cloer climbed up the iTunes chart with “Holiday With Me“. It was a joyful return for the handsome singer, whose CHRISTMAS FROM THE CITY debuted in 2007. The 2022 season gets a new dose of Cloer cheer thanks to the resurgence of his single “Marshmallow World/Winter Wonderland”.

A delightful duet with Niki Scalera, the medley was arranged by Keith Thompson for the 2015 album CHRISTMAS AT MY PLACE. (stream it here on Spotify). “Marshmallow World” and other Christmas treasures are sure to be on the setlist when Travis Cloer returns to Italian American Club for his ninth annual holiday show.

Funnyman Mark O’Toole has enjoyed a wonderfully successful year with his side-splitting The Mark O’Toole Variety Show. He packed the popular South Point Showroom for a number of sold-out concerts and released a new original single. Entitled ‘I Love A Lady”, the romantic song was written by Mark and Vegas resident Llynda More.

In 2017, the Boston native presented A CLASSIC CHRISTMAS, featuring eight seasonal favorites, all flavored with Mark’s signature flair. His latest project for the South Point stage is “A Classic Crooner Christmas”. It performs at 7:30 pm on December 16th and 17th. Tickets are $35 (plus taxes/fees) and can be ordered here.
