Stardust Las Vegas - Lawrence & Gorme
On the big sign, Steve lawrence and Eydie Gorme were billed for closing out the main Stardust showroom; the one which had been called The Wayne Newton Theater, until Wayne left some time ago.
In the news, stories were run about how Lawrence and Gorme had the honor of closing out The Stardust. Indeed they performed there on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and then the Theater went dark.
But that Thursday, Friday and Saturday, was October 26th, 27th, and 28th. The final night of The Stardust was Halloween 31 October 2006. And on that night, and into the early hours of Wednesday 1 November 2006 a band called WonderBoogie played in The Stardust's Starlight Lounge.
Lawrence and Gorme closed out the Theater, but Wonderboogie got us all through the last night.
I will be posting about that last night, and Wonderboogie in forthcoming posts.
