Grammy Award-winning singer and actress Alicia Keys set Mandalay Bay Events Center on fire Friday night with her “Set This World on Fire Tour” stop, and contributing photographer Tom Donoghue was onsite for a photo gallery.
Keys, whose wardrobe theme this tour seems to be see-through black and cabaret in a nod to “Cabaret” and “Chicago,” performed nonstop for nearly two hours, according to a spywitness, and was “absolutely fabulous.”
Grammy-winning singer Miguel opened for Keys before hosting and performing at LAX in Luxor. Our colleague Spencer Patterson of Las Vegas Weekly reviewed the concert.
