CeeLo Green is returning to Las Vegas.
The Atlanta soul man, who established himself as a Vegas Strip player with his 2013 “Loberace” residency at Planet Hollywood, will head to Caesars Palace for a much shorter duration: Four concerts at 8 p.m. July 21-22 and 28-29.
The “intimate” show will find Green backed by a two-piece band as he cruises through his two-decade career, which will definitely include hits “Forget You” and “Crazy,” and, we hope, some of Goodie Mob’s finest.
“I love Las Vegas and yes, Las Vegas loves me,” CeeLo said in a statement. “Caesars Palace and I have created yet another unique opportunity to entertain and add on to the illustrious legacy of Las Vegas. Just as fun as the last one, but quicker, faster and gone in a flash. So catch it if you can.”
The concerts will take place at Cleopatra’s Barge at the casino and will go on sale at 1 p.m. May 26. A pre-sale for Total Rewards members (Caesars Entertainment’s loyalty program), is underway now through 1 a.m. May 26.
Tickets, priced at $119-$199, can be purchased at www.CeeLoVegas.com.
Earlier this week, Green returned to NBC’s “The Voice,” where the former judge performed Earth, Wind & Fire’s “Shining Star” with contestant Jesse Larson.
A few months ago, Green created a photo-op on the red carpet at the Grammy Awards when he arrived in a bizarre costume ostensibly to introduce his new creation, Gnarly Davidson.
