Jose Canseco, Jim McMahon, Terrell Owens Staring In New Vegas Show

From Renegade Instagram

“Renegades” featuring Jose Canseco, Jim McMahon, and Terrell Owens will open at Caesars Palace on January 25, 2018. The show will take place at the tiny Cleopatra’s Barge. The idea of a tell-all show with these guys sounds like an amazing train wreck that I might need to see.

You might have access to meeting the guys at the show. Additionally, you might find Canseco in the poker room. There’s more information in the press release below.

Press Release:

New interactive show allows fans to get up
close and personal with sports legends including
Jose Canseco, Jim McMahon, Terrell Owens and Jimmy King

LAS VEGAS (December 20, 2017) – The rebels of sports are taking over the Las Vegas Strip with Renegades, a new interactive and totally unique show. Opening Thursday, Jan. 25 inside Cleopatra’s Barge, the intimate 180-seat theater at Caesars Palace, Renegades gives sports fans an up-close and personal experience with three of their favorite sports stars. No subject is off-limits as legends recount stories from their playing days to tabloid-making headlines and beyond. Hear directly from the greats as they share their eyewitness accounts of the biggest sports stories in history, while getting your chance to play the role of sports reporter lobbing questions at the athletes during the show’s panel roundtable finale.

The starting line-up includes baseball great Jose Canseco and two-time Super Bowl champion Jim McMahon. The Fab Five’s Jimmy King will appear during the first eight shows, with six-time NFL Pro Bowler Terrell Owens taking over starting Thursday, Feb. 8. **Please note that Terrell Owens will not appear in the shows from January 25 through February 4. The shows will be hosted by comedian Martin Montana, with Eric Jordan Young serving as writer, director and creative director. The Renegades roster will rotate athletes every three months.

A two-time World Series champion, Jose Canseco is best known by millions of fans around the world as the “Godfather of Steroids.” He spent 17 years in the Major Leagues “bashing” baseballs into the upper decks of stadiums and accomplished such impressive accolades as Rookie of the Year, American League MVP, six All Star Game appearances, 462 career homeruns, and became a member of the exclusive 40/40 club. As a controversial best-selling author, reality star, mixed martial arts enthusiast, competitive senior softball player, avid bowler, identical twin, and extreme long drive hitting golf ball philanthropist, you never know what the self-proclaimed “King of Twitter” will say or do next.

Jim McMahon is as well known for his on-the-field performance as he is for his off-field antics, including mooning sports writers when they asked about the status of an injury to his buttocks, and entering his first public event with the Bears holding a beer. Best known at times for being the controversial Chicago Bear who clashed with his coach, Mike Ditka, and NFL commissioner Pete Rozelle, McMahon earned two Super Bowl rings in 15 pro seasons with seven teams, the first win with the Bears in Super Bowl XX where he was the starting quarterback, and the second with the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XXXI. He was also the star of the Bears’ rap video, “The Super Bowl Shuffle,” in which he proclaimed “I’m the punky QB known as McMahon.” He played college football at Brigham Young University, where he was a two-time All-American in 1980 and 1981, and was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1998. McMahon retired from the NFL following the 1996 season and has since worked as a restaurant owner and motivational speaker, and is also dedicated to supporting U.S. troops and veterans.

Jimmy King is most famous for his time spent on the famed University of Michigan Wolverines Fab Five, considered by many to be “the greatest class ever recruited” as it was the first time all five starters were freshmen. King, along with Ray Jackson, Juwan Howard, Chris Webber and Jalen Rose, reached the 1992 and 1993 NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Championship games as freshmen and sophomores. However, most of their wins and both of their Final Four appearances were vacated due to some of the players accepting money and gifts, compromising their amateur status. King played all four years at Michigan and averaged 15 points per game as a senior in 1995, and went on to play 12 years of professional basketball. Besides a having a thriving business career, over the last 20 years Jimmy has spent much of his time working with non-profit organizations that mentor youths in the Detroit area.

Philanthropist, entrepreneur, fitness expert, model, motivational speaker, humanitarian, loving father and the NFL’s six-time Pro Bowler Terrell Owens is a man on a mission. His extraordinary skills on the gridiron and elite athleticism raised the bar for wide receivers in the league. Owens is credited with being one of the most exciting and electrifying players to ever play the game, with 1,078 Receptions, 15,935 yards, and 153 touchdowns during the span of his 15-year career. Owens has garnered countless awards and accolades for his work on and off the field, including six Pro Bowl appearances, five time Associated Press All-Pro, recorded five seasons with 13 or more touchdowns, and the first to score a touchdown in seven straight “Monday Night Football” games. On September 15, 2008 in yet another remarkable Monday Night Game, Owens moved into second place on the NFL’s all-time career touchdown list. While he was one of the best players of his era, Owens also created a significant amount of controversy during his professional career, and also attracted attention for his flamboyant touchdown celebrations and rifts with teammates. Owens’ work on the field is only mirrored by his accomplishments off the field including partnering with the Alzheimer’s Association which is near and dear to his heart.

Martin Montana began his comedy career in Boston, performing at a bowling alley … showbiz! He then spent several years in New York City and now lives in Los Angeles. The co-creator of the web series “Middle Grown,” Martin has also written and acted in sketches on Funny or Die. In 2014 he began voicing the talking orange slice known as “Wedgehead” for the beer Shock Top in a series of hidden camera unscripted ads. The campaign immediately went viral with over 10 million views, expanding into television commercials for both Canada and the U.S., including a Super Bowl commercial in 2016. He can be heard on SiriusXM satellite radio, was a semi-finalist in NY’s Funniest Stand Up Competition, has been featured in the Boston Comedy Festival, and has performed at a Washington Nationals baseball game.

Eric Jordan Young first came to Las Vegas in 1993 for the production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s all-roller skating show, “Starlight Express.”  He starred in the Las Vegas production of “Rock of Ages” from 2015 through 2017 and appeared in over 2,300 performances of “Vegas! The Show.” Young earned a BFA with honors in Musical Theater, graduating from Ithaca College in 1993 and has appeared in a number of Broadway productions including “Chicago,” “Ragtime,” “Seussical the Musical” and “The Look of Love,” as well as several other off-Broadway and touring companies. Eric is currently the Resident Director of “BAZ a Musical Mash-Up,” now appearing at the Palazzo Resort and Casino and is currently performing in Las Vegas’ newest production, “The Cocktail Cabaret” at Caesars Palace.

Renegades is co-produced by Rich Lenkov, Michael Speyer and Jordan Fiksenbaum. “You think you know these athletes’ stories, but trust me, you have no idea!” said Lenkov. “Renegades will offer the most unique entertainment experience on The Strip, where some of the most infamous names in sports will take you through the highs and lows of their careers in an intimate setting.”

Renegades will be presented Thursday through Sunday at 8 p.m. beginning Thursday, Jan. 25. **Please note that Terrell Owens will not appear in the shows from January 25 through February 4. Tickets are $75 and $100, with a VIP package available for $300 which includes VIP seating, a photo, merchandise and a meet and greet with the athletes in Montecristo Cigar Bar after the show. Tickets go on sale Thursday, Dec. 21 at 10 a.m. PST and may be purchased online at ticketmaster.com. Find Renegades on Facebookand follow on Twitter and Instagram.

The production, featuring an eight-piece band, takes fans on a journey through the celebrated singer, actress, songwriter and philanthropist’s life and career, and was recorded and released as a two-CD collection “Summer Nights – Live In Las Vegas” earlier this year. With a career spanning over five decades with more than 100 million albums sold, Olivia’s successes include four Grammys, numerous Country Music, American Music, Billboard and People’s Choice Awards, an Emmy Award, ten #1 hits and more than 15 top 10 singles. She recently scored another #1 hit, this time on the Billboard Dance Club Songs chart with her latest single, “You Have to Believe,” with her daughter Chloe Lattanzi. In 1978, her co-starring role with John Travolta in Grease catapulted Olivia into super-stardom and to date remains the most successful movie musical of all time.

The show is a musical journey through the iconic artist’s illustrious career featuring hits from her early years including “Have You Never Been Mellow,” “Let Me Be There,” “If You Love Me Let Me Know” and “I Honestly Love You,” as well some of her hits from Grease, “Hopelessly Devoted to You,” “You’re The One That I Want,” and of course, “Summer Nights.”  Favorites from some of her other movies, including Xanadu, as well as her ‘80s anthem and record breaking song “Physical,” keep the room dancing, while new songs from her recent Billboard hit album Grace and Gratitude warm the hearts of the entire audience. 

In addition, Newton-John is thrilled that a portion of every ticket sold to her Flamingo shows benefits the wellness programs the Olivia Newton-John Cancer & Wellness Centre (ONJCWC). In 1992, Olivia was diagnosed with breast cancer and it was her personal triumph against cancer that led her to announce her partnership with the Austin Health and the creation of the ONJCWC in her hometown of Melbourne, Australia.  The ONJCWC opened its doors in 2012 and, provides a comprehensive range of services and facilities for cancer treatment, education, training and research as well as a dedicated wellness center (oliviaappeal.com). The Olivia Newton Cancer Research Institute opened its doors on the grounds of the ONJCWC in 2014.

Throughout her career, the much-loved star has held many humanitarian and environmental causes close to her heart, particularly since the birth of her daughter Chloe. Olivia served as Goodwill Ambassador to the United Nations Environment Programme, was the co-founder of Children’s Health Environmental Coalition (now Healthy Child, Healthy World) and, in 1992 she created National Tree Day in Australia, which is responsible for planting more than 10 million trees since its beginning. In 2008 she married “Amazon John” Easterling and together they are spreading the word about the importance of preserving the Rainforest by serving on the board of the ACEER Organization (ACEER.org). With her life today focusing on health and wellness, Olivia is the co-owner of the internationally award-winning Gaia Retreat and Spa near Byron Bay in Australia. Most recently she co-founded One Tree, One Child, an international school initiative with the goal of having every child under the age of ten plant at least one tree.

Lake Of Dreams – Awesome or just Weird and Creepy?

Wynn Las Vegas recently posted a “Behind the Scenes” for the free “Lake of Dreams” show on their youtube page.

I’m always amazed when I look at video of the show.  At times I look and I think it’s awesome and other times I look and it’s weird and creepy.  Today I’m stuck in the middle.  Because the behind of scenes footage looks cool I was hedging that direction but there’s always the music and trippy show that makes me think the creators are on a bad acid trip.

What do you think?
