Two of the last three standing tattoo artists for the finale of “Ink Master” are from Las Vegas: Christian Buckingham and Cleen Rock One. They compete against Tucson, Ariz., tattoo artist Anthony Michaels for the “Ink Master” title and the grand prize of $100,000 on the live Spike TV broadcast from New York City.

Here’s a YouTube preview of their showdown where the biggest shock will be facing as judges all the other competitors they KO’d during the run to the top.

Additionally, the finale will feature our Las Vegas tattoo artist Walter “Sausage” Frank, who will seek to end a feud that’s raged with Matti Hixson from Season 4. Both men were the runners-up that season.

It’s the closing-week run of the world-famous Improv at Harrah’s, as the longest-running comedy club on the Strip shuts its doors. Casey Ley opens, Marc Price is featured, and Henry Phillips is the headliner. They offer laughs through Sunday, when everybody will cry at the final performance.

DJ Afrojack is at Omnia in Caesars Palace.

Utah rockers The Used become new again with its album “Self-Titled” tonight and “In Love and Death” on Wednesday night at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas in the Linq Promenade.

DJ duo Jack Beats is at Beauty Bar downtown.

DJ John Cha is at Bond in the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.

The Cosmopolitan Chef Series continues at Whole Foods at Town Square.


We’ll unveil a preview of the sexy and mysterious new show Cherry Boom Boom starting 10 weeks of rehearsals June 14 before moving into Tropicana theater for two weeks before its official Sept. 8 opening.

In addition to the overnight results and photos from New York of the new “Ink Master” $100,000 champion, we’ll wrap up the 2016 Keep Memory Alive “Power of Love” Gala honoring Tony Bennett’s 90th birthday.
