My wife and I went to Wayne Newton on Wednesday, April 23, 2003. I am a fan of his music but had never seen him live before.It was simply awful. He could not sing. His voice was shot. He tried but could not hit any notes. His voice constantly cracked. Sometimes no sound came out at all.His between song banter was very tasteless. His well known walk among the audience to shake hands and kiss women was quite honestly, creepy.His band did their best to carry the obviously washed out performer. They whooped and yahooed whenever they could to give the impression that everyone was having a good time. Which they were not.Has something snapped in this man's mind? He should not have been on stage at all. We asked for and easily received a refund. The ticket person was not surprised and looked as if many people before us had also asked for their money back.The only good thing that came out of this is that when we went back to our hotel we were able to get standby tickets to Mystere, which turned out to be front row centre. Thany-you Wayne Newton for putting us in the right place at the right time for one of the truly great experiences in Las Vegas.
