‘Pawn Shop Live!’ Moves to Riviera

“Pawn Stars” parody “Pawn Shop Live!” officially moved to the Riviera from the Golden Nugget on Wednesday, April 16, 2014. Austin “Chumlee” Russell is pictured here posing with fans. Launch slideshow »

“Pawn Stars” patriarch Richard “Old Man” Harrison on Wednesday pulled out his famous Chrysler Imperial convertible to drive his family, including Austin “Chumlee” Russell, and the cast of the parody “Pawn Shop Live!” to their new home at the Riviera, which is celebrating its 59th anniversary.

Up in the famous Sinatra penthouse suite, son Rick Harrison’s gold Frank Sinatra LP was unveiled and will remain there for the show’s run. (Rick, incidentally, was reportedly MIA due to a pesky root canal.) Also present: show producer Derek Stonebarger and Riviera General Manager Rob Kunkle.

“Pawn Shop Live!” is a Broadway-style musical comedy, which opened at the Golden Nugget downtown and now plays at the Riviera daily at 4:30 p.m. Our thanks to Denise Truscello of WireImage for her photo gallery.
