This week’s celebrity sightings are just the tip of the iceberg. Wait until Super Bowl weekend starts.
If the concert lineups are any indication, you can bet your bottom dollar (that’s an old timey saying) that we’ll get more than our fair share of athletes, artists, actors and actresses who would rather watch the game from the cozy comforts of a nightclub than freeze their asses off in Minneapolis.
But we digress, here’s who’s having a piece of the Vegas action before the big weekend crowds arrive.
The gang from Styx is wrapping up their limited engagement with Don Felder at The Venetian on Super Bowl weekend, but before it’s over band members Lawrence Gowen, Tommy Shaw and Todd Sucherman are getting their steps around town.
On Tuesday, the trio was spotted taking in the Rolling Stones’ Exhibitionism touring display at The Palazzo.
Also spotted nearby, martial arts superstar Jackie Chan. Or was that just his wax statue? Wax Jackie just returned from L.A., where he’s on display at The Venetian’s Madame Tussauds during Lunar New Year.
Over at Omnia Nightclub, Latin Grammy nominee and handsome man Maluma stopped by to celebrate his 24th birthday. The Pretty Boy, Dirty Boy artist was presented with a cake, a Colombian flag, and those big letters spelling out his name. We’re fans of those letters, next time we’re in Omnia we want those letters spelling out V-E-G-A-S S-E-V-E-N.
Maluma was in town for Saturday’s Calibash concert, which was headlined by Las Vegas resident superstar Jennifer Lopez.
Before the show, J Lo and New York Yankees legend Alex Rodriguez had an early dinner at Bellagio’s Yellowtail Japanese Restaurant & Lounge. We’re told executive chef Akira Back greeted the couple at their booth, which must have been a pleasant treat for them.
A reminder kids: J Lo is leaving us in September. Her “All I Have” show returns to Planet Hollywood’s AXIS theater on February 21, so see it while you can.
Meanwhile, reality television participants Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley (The Real Housewives of Orange County) were spotted in the crowd at Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man at Paris Las Vegas on Saturday night. The two even got to hang out with stars Scheana Shay, Chester Lockhart and Chris Hodgson during the meet-and-greet. (Get to know the new stars here.)
And Dancing With the Stars performers Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Valentin Chmerkovskiy swung through Treasure Island to celebrate the anniversary of mobile game One Piece Thousand Storm at Siren’s Cove.
Keep your eye out for Incubus frontman Brandon Boyd at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Friday. He’s showcasing some of his fine art right outside of The Joint. Incubus kicks off their limited engagement at the resort on Super Bowl weekend.
