Sad to hear the news of the Liberace Museum closing. I got to visit this palace of bedazzled plumage about 15 years ago, back when the new strip was starting to dominate the city. It houses an incredible collection of his stage costumes including the incredible King Neptune suit, some of his outlandish cars, not to mention the world's largest rhinestone.
Liberace was famous for his flamboyant stage presence. He created a new standard in live performance with spectacular and complex choreography involving chorus girls, cars, and animals.
Such a shame that this incredible capsule of the true showmanship at the heart of Vegas is shutting it's doors for good.
