Just another weekend out with the boys for John Travolta. No matter how much he tries to reinvent himself as a tough guy in flicks like From Paris With Love and The Taking of Pelham 123, Travolta is still the dude who spends his Vegas weekends rolling through Cirque and Norah Jones shows.

Travolta caught O Aug. 21, then followed that with a trip to Jones’ performance at The Pearl in the Palms on Aug. 22. The perfect way to cap a perfect evening? Dinner at Alizé with eight dudes, all of them in tuxedos.

Either there’s a formal element to a Jones concert that we’re unaware of, Travolta was assembling his crew for some kind of high-society jewel theft, or he was trying to throw Nic Cage off his trail in their high-stakes game of face-switching cat and mouse.
