We have tantalizing Wicked Whispers & Racy Rumors this testy Tuesday!

The Rolling Stones are likely to OK a second show while in Las Vegas at T-Mobile Arena in October in between appearances over two weekends at the new desert music festival Desert Trip in Indio, Calif. Will The Who follow them into Las Vegas right after their Desert Trip concerts? Those are two of the latest rumors from the Las Vegas music scene.

• It is definite that hip-hop icon Kanye West will bring his “Saint Pablo Tour” to T-Mobile on Oct. 29. I am guessing that means another Kardashian clan weekend in Sin City led by wife Kim Kardashian West. An American Express cardholder pre-sale begins today, and general ticketing begins Saturday.

• The Analyst at Gaming Today has conjectured that a merger might eventually be in the works for mega-moguls Steve Wynn and Sheldon Adelson with their respective Wynn Resorts and Las Vegas Sands empires.

• Due to circumstances beyond control of Palazzo execs, the scheduled premiere there of “Baz: Star Crossed Love” on June 25 has been postponed. No new date has been set.

• Which star on the Strip is looking for a big-bucks investor to keep the show running? Which star on the Strip is about to pull up stakes from a long-running gig to head to Los Angeles? Which Las Vegas entertainer is about to depart his newly signed nightclub deal to concentrate on his charity endeavors?

• I’m hearing that several Strip restaurants are planning four-day shifts for their employees — some even closing for a week or two — during the expected, brutally hot weather season starting next week. Reservations have already become very weak.

• Is the game show “Lovers or Losers” hosted by former “Diff’rent Strokes” star Todd Bridges at the Plaza downtown going to get a cable TV deal?
