As if Grammy-nominated recording artist and “Voice” judge [artist id="1163841"]Cee Lo Green[/artist]Cee Lo Green didn’t already have enough on his plate, the man is taking his act to Las Vegas, where he will headline “Cee Lo Green Presents Loberace,” at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino beginning August 29.
The “F— You” singer announced via his website Friday (March 2) that his show will “take you on a ride through the colorful decades of music, stopping at legendary moments in time, from Prince to Blue Magic to The Rolling Stones, new wave to disco and beyond,” according to the news announcement on the site. “Visually, the production will combine Cee Lo’s flamboyant sense of style & over-the-top creativity, magnified and intensified, with his soulful voice covering some of his favorite music, as well as original songs. Part dance party, part live intimate concert, this energetic, exotic show will be as inspired and visually alive as Cee Lo Green. There will be mind-twisting magic and sexified showgirls, and the larger-than-life wardrobe and impressive stage design will out-glam and out-clever anything you’ve seen from this Muppet-ized, sequin-styled international Lady Killer to date.”
Cee Lo’s “alter ego” is a nod to legendary and flamboyant showman Liberace, a world-renowned vocalist and pianist famous for both his talent and his outlandish fashion. The Goodie Mob rapper and Gnarls Barkley singer has been front and center in the world of music and pop culture over the past couple of years thanks to the success of his hit single “F— You” and the subsequent duet with Gwyneth Paltrow that was born on “Glee” and received special “Muppet-ized” treatment at the Grammys last year.
And don’t forget the success of “The Voice” and Cee Lo’s recent involvement in the Super Bowl halftime show with Madonna.
“Cee Lo Green Presents Loberace,” begins its first of 28 shows on Wednesday, August 29, and goes through December 9.
