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?

With top accommodations, first-rate entertainment, high-end shopping and a slew of acclaimed chefs, the Palazzo has positioned itself as one of the most luxurious resorts on the Strip.
More than 3,000 all-suite rooms start at 740 square feet and are decorated in a modern, yet classic, Italian style. Each room features a sleeping area, with a king or two queens, and a sunken living room area with floor to ceiling windows.
A cathedral ceiling tops the Palazzo casino, while a second 80-foot dome brings natural light to the property's lobby. The 105,000 square foot casino features more than 2,000 slots and 80 table games but lacks the stale smell of cigarettes, as the property is LEED certified with smoking off limits in most of the Palazzo — including 50 percent of the casino floor.
Dining at the Palazzo is among the best of the Strip, starting with Wolfgang Puck's CUT. Chef Simon To serves up authentic Chinese cuisine at Zine, while Sushisamba combines Brazilian and Peruvian flavors with Japanese techniques. At LAVO, club-goers can dine on Mediterranean dishes before heading upstairs to the bath house-inspired nightclub.
