Gladys Knight Performing in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA -- Headline entertainer Gladys Knight will begin an open-ended run of performances starting February 12th at the Flamingo in her hometown, Las Vegas. Knight will perform seven shows over five nights each week with tickets running $45 and $55.

Knight has apparently taken more of a financial stake in the run than normal, according to Flamingo Vice President of Marketing, Randy Sears, "It's more of a partnership between us and Gladys." Knight has performed short stints at Vegas hotels in the past, and in 2000 starred in a longer run of the musical 'Smokey Joe's Cafe' at Caesars Palace. "I'm a homebody. I love being at home," Knight said at the time. She has been a resident of Las vegas since the 1970s and joined the LDS Church after her son, James Newman, introduced the Church to her. Newman, who managed Knight's affairs, died of bilateral pneumonia in 1999.
