Glenn Danzig (The Misfits/Danzig) is coming to The Tropicana on the Las Vegas Strip to perform his album Danzig Sings Elvis. Oh, you didn’t know Danzig did an Elvis album? Where the Hell have you been?

The album was released during the peak of lockdown on April 17, 2020, and I immediately gave it a listen when it came out. Being a big fan of Elvis as well as Danzig, I was stoked to hear what it sounded like.

The album itself is intimate, and feels very personal. With the exception of “Always on My Mind”, which was the album’s sole single, this is not a Greatest Hits record in the least. When listening to it, you can tell that Danzig put his heart into the record. It’s not only performed beautifully, but it is full of deeper tracks that are not for the passive Elvis fan.

Danzig Sings Elvis was met with very mixed reviews, and the not so great ones were borderline rude, in my opinion. Does Danzig sound exactly like Elvis? No. He sounds like Glenn Danzig performing songs that are obviously deeply personal to him.

Naturally, when it was announced that he’d be performing this album live, I immediately jumped on the internet looking for details.

Danzig will be performing on May 12, 2023 at the Tropicana Hotel, which I think is absolutely perfect as far as a venue. Something like this would not work in one of the newer venues. I just wish The Riviera or The Stardust were still around. This show is going to be classic Vegas in a classic Vegas spot, with a twist that only Danzig can provide.

Tickets are available now through Ticketmaster.

Originally from Illinois, Stephy is the daughter of an aspiring metal guitarist and a former rock n roll radio dj. Stephy’s first concert at the tender age of 8 was Rob Zombie at the original Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas, where she happily threw horns up and sang along to "Dragula" with the best of them ( she incidentally loves horror films too!) . She performed with the VGA choir at the 2007 Video Game Awards show at Mandalay Bay when it was hosted by Samuel L Jackson, sharing the stage with the likes of Foo Fighters as well as Kid Rock. An LVA alum, when she isn’t singing or playing herself (she plays a few different instruments), she is out in support of the local scene and at her friends gigs around the southwest and even when she is back home in Illinois! She has written as well as done some photography previously for a couple of smaller zines including Vegas SoundZ when it was in print. Stephy takes the adage of ” If it’s too loud that is just too damn bad! ” to heart- after all- she was raised around screaming guitars, thunderous drums, production studios and only Led Zeppelin and Nirvana played extremely loud would put her to sleep as a kid! Stephy is a large part of the backbone of ZRockR.
