Join us! Liberace on the Riviera: Century of the Showman

Liberace is turning 100!

Over six decades ago, Liberace became the first headlining residence act on the Las Vegas Strip, selling out the Clover Room at the Riviera Hotel night after night.

The residency act in Las Vegas continues to this day to be the model of Rod Stewart, Gwen Stefanie, Lady Gaga and many more.

The Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas was themed for one of Liberace’s favorite locales, The Principality of Monaco.  It’s Monte Carlo Tower was the Strip’s crowning glory in those early glamorous days.  The Clover Room was named for the symbol of famed French author Louise de Vilmorin, who had just received the Prince Pierre of Monaco Literary award.

Sixty years after Liberace cut the ribbon to open the Riviera Hotel, his Foundation hosted the hotel’s last party.

Now, celebrating the Century of Liberace, one hundred parties may take place around the world, but for the headliner, we return to the namesake of the Riviera Hotel, the very place for which it was themed; a venue Liberace loved to play – Monte Carlo, in the Principality of Monaco, on the French Riviera.
