*Cee Lo Green will stay put in Las Vegas for a few months.
The singer/rapper and judge on NBC’s “The Voice” will launch his semi-permanent show, “Loberace,” on Aug. 29 at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip. The production will run at least through the end of the year, reports the AP.
“The concerts will combine Cee Lo’s flamboyant sense of style and over-the-top creativity,” producers said in a statement, adding that the show “will be as inspired and visually alive as Cee Lo Green.”
Organizers say the show will include a musical journey through time, with tributes to Prince and the Rolling Stones. “Mind-twisting magic and sexified showgirls” are also on tap.
The 28 shows through the end of December are scheduled for late nights, and some follow Planet Hollywood’s “Peepshow” production in the 1,400-seat theater.
Green told the Las Vegas Review-Journal he sees himself continuing Sin City entertainment tradition.
“I love the city. I can’t wait to be a part of it. I can’t wait to be officially there,” Green said in an interview. “From this generation I would just like to be able to carry on, and pick up the torch and continue to make Vegas a place to be.”
