Dirk Arthur Show Ends at Tropicana

from Magic News

In an earlier entry of his Luxe Life blog, Robin Leach hinted at possible changes on the Vegas strip which would result in a possible move or cancelation for one magical performer. There were rumors that one of the shows impacted might be that of Dirk Arthur. Today, Dirk confirmed that he would indeed be ending his six year run at the Tropicana.

“I look forward to the next stage my cats and I will perform on and promise to keep everyone posted on the development of Saber, my 3-month-old white tiger cub who has recently been introduced to the Las Vegas community, as well as where they can see us next.”

As part of the continuing makeover of the Tropicana, the property also closed its long-running Folies Bergere last year after 49 years. Only Wayne Newton’sOnce Before I Go remains there for the moment.
