The Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino has a long, storied history of live entertainment. Elvis Presley sold out a reported 837 performances in its showroom in the property’s first iteration as the International. Through more name changes than a remarried Real Housewife (the Las Vegas Hilton, then the highly imaginative LVH), the property has continually hosted an eclectic talent lineup, one that continues as the Westgate Cabaret welcomes the fierce funk of Cameo (you know you love “Word Up”) on Oct. 1.
