An honorable tribute

This is one way pitiless Sin City shows its heart: throwing an A-team of Strip performers at a good cause. In this case, to remember Michael Jackson for the benefit of school music programs. Terry Fator, Holly Madison and other Strip artists—representing such shows as Jersey Boys, The Lion King, Zumanity and Phantom: The Las Vegas Spectacular—will gather, amid a batch of Jackson memorabilia, to perform the late star’s music. Proceeds go to music-education programming in Clark County.
