The man who has long demanded, “Walk this way, talk this way,” will be doing some talking — along with singing — on the Strip in July.
Steven Tyler is bringing his “Out On A Limb” song-and-storytelling show to the Venetian Theater on July 2 (tickets start at $40 and are on sale May 14 at 10 a.m. at Venetian.com and by calling (702) 414-9000 and (866) 641-7469).
The original Aerosmith frontman, Tyler is touring theaters and music halls — such as Lincoln Center in New York on Monday night — with the band Loving Mary of Nashville. His show is to be a mix of tales about his life as a legendary rocker.
The show is to be directed by Brett Ratner and makes the use of video screens to punctuate Tyler’s narrative and live music performance. In his Lincoln Center appearance, on behalf of Janie’s Fund (a charity partnership with Youth Villages to provide support for young abused women), he played such hits as “Sweet Emotion,” “Jaded” and “Cryin’” in a 90-minute set.
"I'm digging deep and finding some real buried treasure for this one. I've never performed quite like this before," Tyler told Rolling Stone magazine. "I'm telling it like it is and getting to perform with some extremely talented musicians and dear friends from Nashville."
In the spirit of Venice, The Venetian is a little piece of romantic Italy right here in Las Vegas. The Venetian is an "all-suite" hotel, with rooms accented with plush linens and Italian marble. The 4,027 suites are divided into two towers: The 36-story Venetian Tower that offers guests a taste of luxurious Las Vegas and the Venezia suites, which guarantee 12 floors of high-end elegance. The top five floors are the hotel's highest level of luxury with its private access, concierge lounge, upgraded features and even a dedicated staff.
The flagship of Venetian nightlife is TAO, an ultra-hip nightclub located inside of TAO Asian Bistro. V Bar is The Venetian's super smooth ultra lounge, made by the owners of New York City's club Lotus and Los Angeles' super swank Sunset Room.
The Venetian features 19 restaurants including Thomas Keller's award-winning French restaurant Bouchon, Mario Batali's B&B Ristorante, Aquaknox for fresh seafood and the 42,000 square foot TAO Asian Bistro. There's also the food court inside the Canal Shoppes for those looking for a quick bite.
Guests can float along The Grand Canal Shops in an authentic Italian gondola ride and pass stores like Burberry and Kenneth Cole along the way. And if you haven't caught a real celeb, on the street in Vegas, you can head over to Madame Tussauds to check out a wax version.
