Passionate Pianist EGOT-winning star returns to Las Vegas John Legend is a firm believer in the fusion of spirituality and music, and an ardent endorser of practicing mindfulness. It’s his ability to stay in the moment that’s made his career climb seem so effortless. He was born John Roger Stephens in Springfie d, Ohio, to music-loving parents. “My mother was the church choir director,” he said during a March 21-26 stint as guest host of the Radio Headspace podcast. “My father sang in the choir and played the drums, so I grew up in the church and I grew up around a lot of music.” An upright piano was the centerpiece of the Stephens’ living room, and Legend begged his mother to let him take lessons. “I had this drive. I wanted to be good at this thing that I loved. I wanted to play music for other people. I grew up in the church and watched other musicians playing in front of the audience, and I wanted to be one of those people who could move people with their music.” Legend did wind up performing in church and practiced his lessons diligently. His piano playing can be heard on “Everything Is Everything” from Lauryn Hill’s 1998 debut The

Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, and he contributed backing vocals to tracks by Jay-Z and Alicia Keys before Kanye West discovered him and produced his 2004 debut album, Get Lifted. That album contained his first huge hit, “Ordinary People,” which earned Legend Best Male R&B Vocal Performance honors at the 2006 GRAMMY Awards. Get Lifted won for Best R&B Album that year and Legend was named Best New Artist. He’d win nine more GRAMMYs in the ensuing years, most recently in 2021 for Bigger Love. Legend earned a Best Original Song Oscar in 2015 for “Glory” from the film Selma, a Tony in 2017 for co-producing a revival of August Wilson’s Jitney and an Emmy in 2018 for playing the title role in Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert. And while Legend probably won’t walk on water in Zappos Theater during Love In Las Vegas on Oct. 14-15, fans expecting to be moved by his music will not be disappointed. –Matt Kelemen Planet Hollywood Resort, ticketmaster.com

Feel the Energy Two-Michelin-starred chef adds a new lounge menu to hit Japanese restaurant

In a very short amount of time, Wakuda has established itself as one of the must-visit restaurants on the Las Vegas Strip. Its pedigree is beyond criticism, thanks to a worldclass décor and a varied, stylized menu by two-Michelin-starred chef Tetsuya Wakuda. Every inch of this space is a visual feast, from a 16-foot-long installation by Yusk Imai in the dining room to two enormous sumo sculptures created by Shohei Otomo. And, recently, the restaurant upped its game even more by debuting a lounge menu, ideal for those on their way to a show or coming back from a nightclub experience, famished and ready to relax. The space itself is very inviting, with customers surrounded by nature-inspired elements like dark woods, cherry blossom wall coverings and contemporary artwork. Like the rest of the establishment, the lounge is designed to have the energy of Tokyo’s Shinjuku ward, known for its small restaurants, bars and izakaya. From 5 p.m. until closing, guests can enjoy a new lineup of dishes, including mini chirashi (assorted seafood on rice), mini donburi (chicken, salmon or Prime tenderloin on rice) and a la carte or platter-style sushi and sashimi. Cocktails are designed to fit every palate. Fans of lighter fare will want to try the Golden Gai, made with Shibui pure malt Japanese whiskey, Campari, Carpano Antica Formula sweet vermouth, and the Competent, featuring Haku vodka, Luxardo Aperitivo, lychee, yellow Chartreuse and lime. For those wanting something with a real kick, definitely check out either the Shishito Sour, which uses charred shishito pepper in addition to Haku vodka, cucumber, plum, lemon and egg white, or the Daze, highlighted by blanco tequila infused by umeboshi (pickled ume fruits). If you attend Friday or Saturday night, make sure to get a good seat: Guest DJs perform every Friday and Saturday night. –Ken Miller

Big Fun for All

Get the gang together for a swinging good time Although it’s not the best thing you’ll see on the golf course, it’s pretty sweet when you watch a golfer slice the ball at Topgolf Las Vegas, where just putting the ball in play can add to your score. And that happens more often than you might imagine, as the attraction draws all manner of players to its 120 bays, spread across four levels. Topgolf features several games, including the signature Topgolf game, where you are going for accuracy and distance. It’s perfect to practice that stance and swing. The Angry Birds game combines the video game with your shots, and a display in your bay plays back the feather-flinging results. If you’re a little better, try Jewel Jam and match three in a row to cause a cascading effect. Other games are suitable only if you are practically a pro—if you play virtual courses, accuracy is demanded. You’ll find a full food and drink menu, too, with pizzas, burgers, wings and specialty items like a miso salmon bowl, chicken Boursin bacon fl tbread, kalbi short rib tacos and the magnificent sheet pan nachos. On the drinks side, there’s plenty of beer, wine margaritas and signature items like Topgolf Tea. There’s even a full bar on the top floor, with private suites and a pool available. If you want some good advice while you’re here, Topgolf has pros on staff ho can give you quick tips or full lessons. –Nina King 4627 Koval Lane, 702.933.8458

Can You Handle It? Yeah! It’s really him, returning to his hit residency It’s a long road to the top and even a longer one before an act reaches the superstar level of Usher Raymond IV. Usher’s path has led to eight GRAMMY wins and 23 nominations, nine Billboard Hot 100 No. 1s, 65 million albums sold, a monster hit that was part of Strip nightlife’s soundtrack for years in “Yeah!” and now a headlining residency at Dolby Live at Park MGM with Usher: My Way– The Vegas Residency. Usher’s destiny was determined by talent, confidence and having the right mentors at the right time. Starting in Chattanooga, Tenn., with a group called New Beginnings, he relocated with his family to Atlanta, where he became a Star Search winner and came to the attention of LaFace Records. At age 13 he was sent to New York City to learn about living the recording artist’s life from Sean “Puffy” Combs. Usher’s eponymous debut album came out in 1994. He then came under the influence of producer Jermaine Dupri and found his artistic self with 1997’s My Way. The album’s lead single, “You Make Me Wanna...,” became a huge hit, followed by “Nice & Slow” and the title track. He won his first GRAMMY in 2001 with “U Re-

mind Me,” recognized as Best Male R&B Vocal Performance. All four songs have been part of his My Way residency, with “My Way” kicking off his summer’s shows. Confessions launched Usher into the stratosphere. The 2004 album spent 129 weeks on the Billboard 200, with nine weeks at No. 1. “Yeah!” fueled by an irresistible synth hook and Lil Jon’s punctuating shout-outs, became the No. 1 song for 12 weeks, only to be replaced by Usher’s follow-up single “Burn.” He’d later perform Confessions single “Caught Up” along with “Get Up (I Feel Like Being a) Sex Machine” with James Brown at the 2005 GRAMMYs. Brown, Michael Jackson, Prince and Stevie Wonder are arguably all musical godfathers to Usher. He’s cited them as major influences, and their level of showmanship, as well as stage professionalism, continue to inspire his live shows. His Dolby Live production is studded with examples chosen from a catalog that includes 28 Top 10 and 13 No. 1 Hot R&B songs. –Matt Kelemen

Still Making a Splash

Downtown pool club keeps its doors open year-round As pools start closing for the season, there’s one place that remains open every single day of the year—Stadium Swim. This 365-day, all-in-one facility is the spot to hang poolside. All the pools are heated for fall and winter temps, and that comes in handy when it comes to football and hockey season. The massive, 40-foot-tall, high-definition screen with 14 million pixels will display all the game-day action, and guests can even cheer on their team in style by booking one of 30 large cabanas. “In the winter where every other pool is closing, we’re still open,” says EJ Stagner, director of Stadium Swim. “We basically have six huge hot tubs. With the sports, college football, NFL, it’s a great place to come and watch the games.” Spread across three levels, the 21-and-over complex has a 4,000-person capacity, tons of lounge chairs and daybeds and six pools. Blackjack tables, live DJ music and a walk-up bar are some bonuses, as well as a huge menu of specialty cocktails, elevated food options and bottle service. “It’s definitely different,” Stagner says. “It’s a great experience. I think it provides not only downtown but Las Vegas in general a great place for both locals and tourists. It really gives you the best of both worlds—if you just want to come for the pool party and experience that or for sports fans, this is really the only place in Vegas, in the country, to really experience watching your team.” –Kiko Miyasato Circa Resort & Casino, circalasvegas.com

More than half a century later, the room still keeps secrets by serving as a very intimate speakeasy (capacity is less than two dozen people). There are also speakeasy rules: no talking on the phone, no

To access The Laundry Room, you must make a reservation on laundryroomlv.com. But how do you find the place? Look for Commonwealth in the Fremont East District. Step to the big red doors, ask for security, tell them you have a reservation, and the next steps will be falling down the rabbit hole.

Work hard and you'll be rewarded Coco Rodriguez is living proof that if you come to the U.S. and work hard, you can find success. Born and raised in Oaxaca, Mexico, Rodriguez moved to Las Vegas in 2005. “I came to Vegas to be successful,” he says. When he landed here, he worked multiple jobs and went to school to learn English. One day a friend told him about a dishwasher position at Hofbräuhaus Las Vegas. Rodriguez passed the interview and was hired in 2007—he worked for several years as a busboy, then moved up to food runner, and, for the past three years, he’s been one of the beer hall’s top servers.

I have a really good relationship with them—we’ve known each other for a really long time. I feel like I belong here.” Rodriguez is hugely popular with guests of Hofbräuhaus, too. “People always come back,” he says. “People have a lot of fun here. My customers always say, ‘Coco, I’m going to come back. We love the place. We love the food. We love the beer. We love you. We’re gonna come back.’”

With his positive attitude and good vibes, it’s very easy to see why Rodriguez is a popular server, and why he’s found success. “I want to prove myself. I’m always watching motivational videos and (learning) how to talk better, how to communicate better with people–I’m always trying to improve myself. If you want to be OK and you want to have a good life, you can get like three jobs in Vegas; there’s a lot of opportunity here to work hard. You can be successful here; you can get a better life. If you have the right mentality, you can do anything in Las Vegas.” –Kiko Miyasato

Amalfi y Bobby Flay transports you to the coast By Ken Miller

Fans of Bobby Flay’s Las Vegas enterprises no doubt remember fondly his Mesa Grill at Caesars Palace, for years a beloved Mexican joint that was full of Flay’s personal touches, from the décor

28 | 10.9.22 Las Vegas Magazine

to the menu to the waitstaff. And while Mesa Grill is no more (booooo!), in its place is another Flay classic, one that instantly became a go-to spot for foodies: Amalfi y Bobby Flay, a celebration of the vibe and cuisine of the Amalfi Coast of Italy. The first thing you’ll notice is the completely new look of the space. There’s so much quality in even the tiniest details, from the soaring ceilings and tile work to the light woods and curving walls. But what you’ll really notice is the centerpiece—several circular,

blue-tiled receptacles, each containing fresh fish. The offerings change from week to week, and if you decide to go the fish route, you get to select the one you want! There’s also someone on hand to give you information about the different offerings. It’s a nice addition to what’s already a special experience. Given that this is an Italian restaurant, you’ll likely want an Italian-inspired cocktail to spice up your meal. There’s a healthy selection of spritzes, highlighted by the Amalfi Selim Spumante, Cappelleti Aperitivo and soad) and the


Nosh Market-driven whole fish

From there, you’ve got your choice of pastas, chicken, steak or, of course, fish. The fl vor of the crushed pea agnolotti is irresistible, especially when fl vored with lemon, ricotta and mint. Jidori chicken al forno is a succulent dish with bite, thanks to salsa verde in addition to its pecorino crust and pancetta accompaniment. Meat choices range from a 10-ounce filet mignon to a 24-ounce bone-in ribeye, all Prime certified Angus beef, and all solid choices. But really, we’d never forgve ourselves if we didn’t recommend the fish here. The program is really world-class; have your selection grilled whole or filleted and served with your choice of

Passion for performance drives the magic of David Copperfi Copperfield The master magicians of Las Vegas are naturally secretive about their work. They would likely prefer not too many details be revealed about their performances. One aspect David Copperfield probably doesn’t mind Copperfi revealing involves making audience members’ mobile phones disappear inside darkly colored wooden boxes affixed to the tabletops inside his a° eponymous theater at MGM Grand Las Vegas. Foreshadowing the rest of his performance without spoilers can be tricky. Copperfi Copperfield’s current show is about possibilities and poignancy, magical moments and grand illusions. He clearly loves cars, from gleaming red Ferraris to beautifully maintained classic models, and has the power to make them appear, disappear and levitate. His psychic abilities are sharp as ever and his methods of demonstrating them are both arcane and inimitable. He literally travels back in time after telling a story about an important fifigure from his past and at one point shares the stage with a charismatic companion who is out of this world. Having his show crescendo with a close encounter of the third kind Copperfield can top is the only way Copperfi himself after a career that includes making the Statue of Liberty vanish, walking through the Great Wall of China and escaping from Alcatraz. There’s a fantasy element for the Dungeons & Dragons demographic as well. It’s all tied together by the casual self-assuredness that’s charCopperfield’s performances acterized Copperfi since he established himself as an icon of magic in the ’70s. Copperfi Copperfield is part of magic history now, as well as one of its most

astute historians. Where 19th century theatrical illusionist forefather Jean-Eugène Robert-Houdin brought magic to the masses and gave a command performance for Queen Victoria, Copperfi Copperfield reached mass 20th century television audiences and gave a command performance for President Reagan. Like Harry Houdini, he performed the most widely publicized illusions and stunts of his time. With great magical powers came great responsibility, so it was natural for Copperfi Copperfield to collect archives of past masters of the conjuring arts and move them into a private museum somewhere in the Las Vegas Valley, maintained for researchers and occasional interested parties. His collection of islands in the Caribbean contains what he claims is an authentic fountain of youth, where leaves fallen from trees turn green again. The secret fountain may explain why Copperfi Copperfield looks several decades younger than he is. It’s been more than 40 years since he starred as the mysterious magician who enchanted Jamie Lee Curtis in cult slasher fifilm Terror Train, nearly 45 years since his fifirst The Magic of David Copperfi Copperfield television special and almost a half century since, fresh out of high school, he was cast as the lead in theatrical comedy The Magic Man.

Sarah Brightman brings music and mystery to The Venetian for ‘A Starlight Symphony’ By Matt Kelemen

When Sarah Brightman arrives at The Venetian for her A Starlight Symphony … An Evening with Sarah Brightman engagement, she’ll be fresh from attending a ceremony honoring her with the 2,736th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The exhilaration generated from the event will likely carry over into the Starlight Symphony shows, her only live U.S. appearances of the year for which fans from around the world are attending. The voice that originated the role of Christine Daaé on Broadway will now fill the hall where the Vegas version of Phantom of the Opera was performed for five years, bringing Brightman’s career full circle in more ways than one. She’s experienced a serendipitous, celestial journey from her ’70s disco hit “I Lost My Heart to a Starship Trooper” to Starlight Symphony, with her recording catalog recently reaching

more than 100 million plays on Apple Music. The path that she followed was more organic than calculated, though. “If ever I have felt in the past that I should try to do something that I should be doing, it never really works,” says Brightman in a recent trans-Atlantic phone interview. “I have to really follow passion, if you like, about something even though everyone would say, ‘That’s not going to work,’ or ‘What are you doing?’ I just followed it because that felt right for me. I think that’s the secret for some creative artists’ success.” Music, dance and acting was all Brightman knew by the time she had a dance music single on the charts at age 18. She made the transition from disco to musical theater in 1981 when she was cast in Cats, marrying the musical’s composer Andrew Lloyd Webber three years later. Her singing on Lloyd Webber’s 1985 album Requiem and creation of Christine for the 1986 debut of Phantom positioned her for the series of successes to come. Her latest album, 2018’s Hymn, is cerebral and spiritual. It featured Brightman’s latest work with producer and Gregorian chant revivalist Frank Peterson, as well as a collaboration with Japanese

musician Yoshiki, who will be at Starlight Symphony to perform “Miracle” with her. Brightman toured extensively in support of Hymn, including a stop at Las Vegas’ The Smith Center for the Performing Arts, but three October 2020 dates at The Venetian had to be canceled due to COVID-19 restrictions. The rescheduled dates gave her the opportunity to “do something that was a little more retrospective.” “I started going through all the lyrics in all of my pieces and linked a lot of the songs together, taking into account the time of year, like it’s Halloween,” says Brightman. “I wanted something uplifting but quite mysterious as well. I wanted a very symphonic sound, so I’ve got a wonderful orchestra onstage. I’ve got wonderful mysterious lighting. … I want to take the audience on a journey from the past up until now. And I wanted to talk a lot within the concert, which I don’t normally do, but I feel I’ve got to that point where I might have some funny things to say to the audience about how things came about.”

Piff he Magic Dragon continues his hot run on the Strip Piff he Magic Dragon has been a major part of the entertainment scene at the historic Flamingo Las Vegas since 2015, when he started to perform in the intimate Bugsy’s Cabaret space. In recent years, he’s expanded his comedy and magic production with bigger tricks, bigger laughs and a larger cast, and found a new home in the more spacious Flamingo Showroom. And now he’s unleashed Reptile Dysfunction, a riotous comedy special fans and followers can watch for free on YouTube, which features all we’ve come to expect from Piff nd more—in-

special and then come to see the show, they’ll get an all new experience.

It was like making a film, shooting scenes we knew would fit with the show and cutting some things and reshooting others. In the end, we had so much material to choose from that it was difficult to cut some of our favorite pieces. But there was never a deadline to put it out. We wanted to get it all nicely finished and ready to be seen, and I think it’s different from the usual comedy specials.

Yeah, we shot the show (parts) in the old theater, but we also wanted to take it outside to the Strip, show some of the tricks we’ve done on the High Roller (Observation Wheel) and other places around Las Vegas. It’s great being part of the scene here and being able to show what we love about Vegas.

Penn is great to work with. You give him a line and he’ll deliver it five different ways. And he definitely goes crazy with the character. It’s a very different Penn than what you usually see.

Mr. Piffles is doing a trick where he is (producing) any drink named by someone in the audience. It’s based on a very old trick where you have a tea kettle and a spectator asks for a specific drink and you pour out of the kettle, only instead of that, you have a dog, and instead of the spout, well, you can work the rest out.
