Mr. Las Vegas himself, Wayne Newton, will perform Monday at the Lyric Opera House to benefit the Grand Guardian Scholarship. An early staple of Jackie Gleason and Jack Benny's shows, Newton has a voice that took him to Las Vegas where, for several decades, he has performed in venues such as the Stardust and Hilton. Newton continues to be a public figure, appearing in cameo roles and most recently on Dancing with the Stars. The Lyric Opera House is at 140 W. Mount Royal Ave. The show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are $42.50-$97.

Wayne Newton doesn't quit. The seemingly ageless king of Sin City has carried on the classic crooner spirit long after the deaths of Frank Sinatra and Elvis [Presley]. He started in show business as a child, and decades later, still continues to rigorously tour and perform. Sunday, he comes to the Lyric Opera House. When Newton does eventually retire, it will be on his own terms. But it won't be any time soon, he said. Even at 66, he still has more to learn about being a showman. At your age and at this point in your career, do you feel like you are still growing as an artist?

BEIJING - Dara Torres was born on April 15, 1967, two weeks before a blessed event was held in Las Vegas at the Aladdin Hotel, the wedding of singer Elvis Presley and his bride, Priscilla. Dara's father, Eddie Torres, bought the Aladdin (in a partnership with Wayne Newton) 13 years later. By then, his daughter the swim prodigy was a fixture in the expensive pools of Beverly Hills, including the one in the Torres family's sprawling 10-bath home there. He meant a great deal to Dara way back then.
