Recognized worldwide as ‘Mr. Las Vegas’, entertainer Wayne Newton is known for his signature song, “Danke Schoen,” plus many hit singles, including “Daddy, Don’t You Walk So Fast,” “Red Roses For a Blue Lady” and “Years.” He has recorded and released 165 albums to date. In a business that is, at best, volatile, and success sometimes short lived, Wayne has performed live to more than 40 million people and has performed over 25,000 shows in Las Vegas alone. Without reading a note of music, he plays 13 instruments. He exemplifies the talent, glamour and energy that is Las Vegas. Having established himself as an accomplished actor, both on television and in movies such as “Vegas Vacation” and James Bond’s “License to Kill”, Wayne’s getting more attention than ever.
Born in rural Virginia, Wayne knew from a young age he wanted to entertain. At age six, he had his first radio show. At age nine he had his first television show in Phoenix AZ, where his family had moved due to Wayne’s asthma. Starting at the bright young age of 15, Mr. Las Vegas performed six shows a night, six nights a week, at the Fremont Hotel. It was obvious Wayne simply worked harder and dug deeper than anyone out there, sizing up audiences as he went, and tailoring shows to fit their moods.
