Las Vegas’ twin towers of tap are heading to one of the Strip’s hottest shows.
Sean and John Scott, more famously known as Sean & John, are premiering in “Absinthe” at Caesars Palace on Thursday night. The duo has most recently performed in “Vegas Nocturne” at the Cosmopolitan’s Rose. Rabbit. Lie. but were left without a stage when that show closed July 12.
Sean & John have appeared on several network and cable TV shows. They have been featured on “America’s Got Talent” and MTV’s Video Music Awards with Christina Aguilera and backed Beyonce at Encore Theater and Usher on “Dancing With the Stars.”
The addition of the twin dancing stars arrives amid a series of changes to “Absinthe,” which is reportedly performing better than ever at the Caesars box office.
A new performer, Charlie Starling of Manchester, England, has taken over the balloon-dancing act vacated by Angel Porrino. Lea Hinz, an aerialist from Germany who has been trained in Montreal, also is in the production.
Thus, “Absinthe” is already a powerhouse production. Sean & John are merely bolstering a hit show.
The hard-working duo became well known and highly regarded in Las Vegas as one of the specialty acts in David Saxe Productions’ “Vegas! The Show” and “V — The Ultimate Variety Show” at Miracle Mile Shops of Planet Hollywood.
They were snapped up by Spiegelworld as “Vegas Nocturne” began casting its show at the Cosmopolitan, and the tappers floored audiences during the production show and also as atmospheric entertainers in the supper club Rose. Rabbit. Lie.
During the final performance of “Vegas Nocturne” at RRL, Sean Scott ended the duo’s final act while breathing heavily and wiping sweat and tears from his face. It was not known at the time if Sean & John would return to the stage on the Strip, but Thursday night, they will make their return.
A very loud, powerful return.
Transport yourself to the opulent and excessive Roman Empire at Caesars Palace. But the ever-changing Caesars Palace is far from ancient. The hotel and casino is constantly raising the bar for what visitors can expect in a Vegas resort experience.

Caesars features 129,000 square feet of gaming space, including the Strip’s largest poker room and a 250-seat sports book. Other amenities include about two dozen restaurants, a four-level shopping mall, four pools, a spa, Pure and Poetry nightclubs and Pussycat Dolls.
Dining options include restaurants from world-renown chefs Guy Savoy, Wolfgang Puck, Bobby Flay, Gordon Ramsay and, on Feb. 4, 2013, Nobu Matsuhisa.
You never know what characters you’ll run into at Caesars with regular performers like Jerry Seinfeld, Bette Midler, Elton John and maybe even the emperor himself.
