September 2022


We always feel the changes that happen between August and September—the weather changes dramatically, and because of that, business and conventions come back to town.  Las Vegas gets busy in September.  School is back in session.  Headliners are storming back to the city.  Football is back!  We also have Labor Day, Mexican Independence, and the 21st anniversary of September 11th, (I’ll be flying my flag and taking time to remember the heroes, the horror, the evil, and the strength that was brought about because of all of those events.) It’s also time to change the watering schedule for the yard.


September (from Latin septem, "seven") was originally the seventh of ten months in the oldest known Roman calendar.   After the calendar reform that added January and February to the beginning of the year, September became the ninth month but retained its name. It had 29 days until the Julian reform, which added a day.


The autumnal equinox—also called the September or fall equinox—is the astronomical start of the fall season in the Northern Hemisphere and the spring season in the Southern Hemisphere.  It will be on September 22nd.  The word “equinox” comes from Latin aequus, meaning “equal,” and nox, “night.” On the equinox, day and night are roughly equal in terms of length. During the equinox, the Sun crosses what we call the “celestial equator”—an imaginary extension into space of Earth’s equator line. The equinox occurs precisely when the Sun’s center passes through this line. When the Sun crosses the equator from north to south, this marks the autumnal equinox; when it crosses from south to north, this marks the vernal equinox.


There are some very fascinating national designations for September…I’ll highlight a few that I find the most interesting…


September 1st is National No Rhyme (Nor Reason) Day. The First Friday in September is National Lazy Mom’s Day.  International Bacon Day is the Saturday before Labor Day, and September 15th is National Linguine Day, National Double Cheeseburger Day, and Day.  Interestingly, September 18th is National Cheeseburger Day (just a few days after Double Cheeseburger day.)  September 20th is National Punch Day and Wife Appreciation Day…is that just bad taste?  September 22nd is Hobbit Day, and the 23rd is Celebrate Bi-sexuality Day.  In spite of bad press the 26th is National Shamu the Whale Day and the 27th is National Corned Beef Hash Day.  And one of my favorites…September 30th is Blasphemy Day.


Élia Beach Club located at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, part of Curio Collection by Hilton, closes out the summer season with splashy performances during Labor Day Weekend, Friday, September 2 – Sunday, September 4.  Best known for his singles "YA NO" with Seven Kayne and "Illuminati" featuring Ski Mask the Slump God and Lil Yachty, guests will enjoy sounds of Diablo, prepared to headline on Friday, September 2. Élia Beach Club has prepared a special performance from Flosstradamus, Good Times Ahead, and Faed set to elevate the crowd on Saturday, September 3.


Stroll amongst villages and guilds, converse with royalty and show your true knighthood as Clark County Parks and Recreation presents the 28th Annual Age of Chivalry Renaissance Festival at Sunset Park Oct. 7-9, 2022.  For more than two decades, the three-day outdoor festival has brought more than 35,000+ locals and visitors together for a weekend full of authentic medieval fun as Sunset Park is transformed into a magical wonderland. The Age of Chivalry will immerse visitors in the Renaissance era with numerous villages and different guilds, activities, historical reenactments, live performances and an array of authentic period foods and beverages – truly an event that is fun for the entire family.

The Marshall Tucker Band
Friday, September 9, 2022 at 8 p.m.
The Marshall Tucker Band came together as a six-piece outfit in Spartanburg, South Carolina in 1972 and they've been in tune with tearing it up on live stages both big and small across the globe ever since. The band's mighty music catalog, consisting of more than 20 studio albums and a score of live releases, has racked up multi-platinum album sales many times over. Lead singer Doug Gray sees no end to the road that lies ahead for The Marshall Tucker Band, whose legacy is being carried forward by the man himself and his current bandmates, drummer B.B. Borden; bassist and vocalist Ryan Ware; keyboardist, saxophonist, flutist and vocalist Marcus James Henderson; guitarist and vocalist Chris Hicks; and guitarist and vocalist Rick Willis.

Jon Dorenbos, AGT Season 11 finalist, to guest host August 29 – September 11.

Additional Show Date:  Monday, Dec. 26 


Following an extensive audition process, the producers of Bat Out of Hell – The Musical, the award-winning hit production set to Jim Steinman and Meat Loaf's greatest hits and one of history's best-selling albums, have hand selected Travis Cormier as the coveted starring role of Strat, the immortal leader of The Lost. Cormier will take the stage at Paris Las Vegas on Sept. 27, after a long and tedious selection process filled with setbacks, hard work and ultimately triumph.  After a wide search in both Los Angeles and Las Vegas over the course of several months, the producing team headed to New York for one last round of auditions to find the perfect fit for Steinman and Meatloaf's original vision. At the very last minute, the show's casting director came across Cormier, even though he had actually just missed the New York auditions because of a misplaced passport, and were intrigued by his rock 'n' roll yet dreamy vibe. To see if the voice matched the face, the team agreed to meet him on a conference call and within the first five notes, the producing partners knew they had just found the next big star and hired him on the spot.
