In definitely one of the most unusual collaborations — ever — in Las Vegas, Caesars Palace headliner Shania Twain was joined onstage Tuesday night by Piff the Magic Dragon and his Chihuahua, Mr. Piffles, during Twain’s show “Shania: Still the One” at the Colosseum.
Piff and Mr. Piffles star in “Vegas Nocturne” at Rose. Rabbit. Lie. in the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. RRL sister show “Absinthe” is performed in the Spiegelworld tent outside Caesars Palace and next to Serendipity 3.
Twain talked up “Vegas Nocturne” and how much she loves the erotic and unique show — and Piff and Mr. Piffles, as they’ve become besties as of late. The Canadian superstar invited Piff to join an onstage singalong with audience members as she held Mr. Piffles.
Twain had a busy weekend, as she attended The Backstreet Boys concert at Axis in Planet Hollywood (BSB’s opening act was Canadian singer Avril Lavigne, whose husband, Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, also was in town) and joined the boyband at their afterparty Saturday night at Chateau in Paris Las Vegas.

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 Palace features 3,348 rooms and suites in five towers, including the new luxury boutique Nobu Hotel and Restaurant, which opened Feb. 4, 2013, in the totally remodeled Centurian Tower. 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.
