Elvis Presley Is Losing A Vegas Record This Weekend

In the heart of Las Vegas, where legends are made and records stand for decades, there's an impending shift. For nearly 50 years, the illustrious title of the most performances at the International Hotel, now the Westgate, has been held by none other than Elvis Presley. But the tides of history are about to change. So Who's Breaking Elvis Presley's Record? On Sept. 21, Barry Manilow, the celebrated maestro behind timeless hits like "Mandy" and "Copacabana," will step onto that iconic stage for his 637th performance. In doing so, he'll surpass the record set by the King of Rock and Roll himself, Elvis Presley, who held the record at 636 shows, according to the Westgate's website. Manilow, a legend in his own right, expresses the profound honor of performing on the same stage that Elvis once graced. He remarks to the Westgate, "It's an honor to be on the same stage that the King once graced. That weekend is going to be especially meaningful.” To mark this historic occasion, Barry Manilow has chosen to give back to the community that has embraced him throughout his illustrious career. The proceeds from his performances on Sept.21, 22, and 23 will be dedicated to a selection of charities that hold a special place in his heart, according to Barry Manilow's X (formerly Twitter) account.
