Old R&B/pop Divas (yes, that includes Elton John) and now apparently old R&B bands don't die, they just settle in Vegas.
To wit: Former Prince proteges The Time will be doing a summer residency at The Flamingo Las Vegas.
The band recently performed on the 50th Grammy Awards show in February with all orginal members Morris Day, Jerome Benton, Jesse Johnson, Monte Moir Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis on stage together for the first time since 1993..
Now the same lineup will try to inspire tourists and gamblers to do The Walk and The Bird and perhaps even engage in a little Jungle Love while reminding everyone how Cool they were in the 80s'
(sorry about that)
Anyway, The Time will perform 15 shows at the Flamingo from June 24 through Aug. 2, with ticket prices ranging between $65 and $125 via Harrahs.com.
I'm a big fan, but for $125 Morris Day better come to my table and sing 777-9311 to me and Jerome has to be my hype man for the rest of the evening?
