Top 10 “Old Vegas” Attractions in Downtown Las Vegas

It seems everyone is longing for “Old Vegas.” We totally get that hankering for a little “Old Vegas,” as downtown Las Vegas has about as much vintage Vegas as you’re going to find anywhere.

If you’re looking for the best spots in Sin City to get a taste of that old-school Vegas vibe, downtown Las Vegas is the place to be. Here are some nostalgic “Old Vegas” sights and attractions to check out in downtown:

1. Golden Gate Hotel & Casino

Golden Gate in Downtown Las Vegas

It doesn’t get any more vintage than the oldest casino in Las Vegas. Golden Gate Hotel & Casino is one of the hottest stops on Fremont Street with flair bartenders at OneBar, sexy dancing dealers in the casino and craft cocktails at Bar Prohibition.

While you’re at Golden Gate, make sure to check out a window to the past! When the casino’s high limit area was being renovated, a portal to view the wall of the original hotel structure was installed. It’s an amazing nod to the past if you know where to look.

Golden Gate High Limit2

You’ll get that retro feeling right away with art deco accents throughout the casino. The throwback, upbeat atmosphere in the casino is reminiscent of frequent visits from Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack back in the day. Be sure to swing by the next time you’re in downtown Las Vegas for an authentic experience short on pretense and long on pours.

2. The Neon Museum

If you thought Vegas just tossed out all those iconic neon signs that graced some of its most recognizable buildings, think again!

Downtown Las Vegas visitors can check out famous neon signs and restored displays going back decades at the Neon Museum.

Neon Museum

Some things you won’t want to miss include the original Stardust, Riviera, Sahara and Hard Rock Cafe neon signage, as well as historic Golden Gate and Binion’s Horseshoe signs. Icing on the cake: The museum’s visitor center is housed in the original La Concha Motel lobby.

3. Vegas Vic

Vegas Vic Referb

Speaking of neon, Vegas Vic is a little piece of “Old Vegas” history that sits next to the Golden Nugget on Fremont Street. The famous neon cowboy was made in the likeness of the Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce character from 1947, designed to help draw visitors to the city.

When Vegas Vic was first erected outside the Pioneer Club in 1951, he waved his arm and welcomed guests with a loud “Howdy, Podner” greeting. You can still snap a picture with Vegas Vic under the Viva Vision canopy today.

Worth noting: Vegas Vic’s wife, Vegas Vickie, is being refurbished and will be back on Fremont Street at the new Circa Las Vegas resort . The couple was “married” in 1994.

4. Hotel Apache at Binion’s

The original Hotel Apache on Fremont Street opened in 1932, so you can imagine how much history is tucked away within those walls. In fact, it’s rumored Hotel Apache is one of the most haunted spots in Las Vegas, with workers and guests claiming to have witnessed spirits from the past.

Hotel Apache at Binion's

Apart from reports of paranormal activity, it’s noteworthy as the first Las Vegas hotel to have an air conditioner in its lobby, to have a fully carpeted casino and use an electric elevator.

You can find the restored Hotel Apache at Binion’s Gambling Hall today. Bonus: No resort fees. That’s about as “Old Vegas” as you can get!

5. Hugo’s Cellar at Four Queens

Hugo's Cellar steak

If you’re looking for a classic Vegas-style restaurant, Hugo’s Cellar at Four Queens brings you back to the old days of romantic lighting, deep booths, brick-lined walls, and signature steak and seafood dishes that won’t break the bank.

What really makes Hugo’s Cellar special, though, is the impeccable “Old Vegas” service you’ll get while you dine. From the waiters in bow ties who mix your salad tableside to the master sommelier recommending the perfect wine to complement your main course, we guarantee you haven’t seen service like this anywhere else.

6. Atomic Liquors

Atomic Liquors Vegas

Atomic Liquors holds a very special place in Las Vegas history as the first bar to officially be issued a tavern liquor license (literally, license #00001).

Opening its doors in 1952, Atomic welcomed customers of all different backgrounds, including casino employees finishing their shifts and A-list celebrities avoiding the crowds on the Strip.

Drop in for a cold beer or cocktail as you admire some of the original decor and accents. There’s also a safe on display that was discovered under the floorboards during its 2012 restoration. The paperwork and other contents date all the way back to the 1950s.

7. The Mob Museum

Mob Museum

The Mob Museum is definitely not your typical museum, and not just because of the subject matter.

The Mob Museum is a unique Las Vegas attraction that explores the history of organized crime with interactive exhibits that deftly tackle Vegas’ gangster past. This is where you get all the dirt on Sin City’s mobster history.

Once you’ve gone through the museum, they also have a speakeasy-style bar and Prohibition-era distillery you have to check out. Where else can you get an “Old Vergas” buzz from bona fide outlaw moonshine?

8. Sigma Derby at The D

The D Sigma Derby

What is Sigma Derby, you ask? Well, it’s only a classic 1980s horseracing slot machine that features miniature horses and jockeys circling around a mechanical track. Place a minimum bet of $0.25 on which horses you think will win, then cheer them on as they bob their way down the racetrack. The game has 10 betting stations, so gather your friends for some real retro fun.

9. Top of Binion’s Steakhouse

Binion's Steakhouse

You’ll get all the “Old Vegas” vibes you crave at Top of Binion’s Steakhouse, with the added bonus of awesome downtown Las Vegas views.

Located on the 24th floor of Binion’s Gambling Hall on Fremont Street, the menu features classic steakhouse dishes that make for the perfect date night.

After dinner, be sure to take a nostalgic stroll through Binion’s casino for a little more of that vintage Vegas charm. Don’t forget to get a photo with their famous $1 million cash pyramid while you’re there. You’ll also want to stop by a new addition to Binion’s, the Whiskey Licker Up bar and restaurant. It features the only revolving bar in Las Vegas.

10. Old Meets New at Circa in Downtown Las Vegas

Circa Resort 2

The most anticipated project in the works downtown is Circa Las Vegas, a new resort opening in Dec. 2020. The new resort will have 777 rooms, feature a multi-tiered pool amphitheater and wow sports fans with the largest sports book in Las Vegas.

Why “Circa” as the name? Circa was designed to pay tribute to the colorful history of Las Vegas. By bringing vintage hospitality and luxury amenities together, downtown Las Vegas will offer an even more exciting experience that you can’t get anywhere else.

Add that to the newly upgraded Viva Vision canopy, the thrilling Slotzilla Zipline and free live entertainment, Fremont Street Experience is where vintage Vegas and Sin City excitement come together.

If you want to get a feel for Old Las Vegas and the and the real roots of the city, you need to head Downtown to Fremont Street.  Under a canopy of modern LED lights, you can still feel the charm and excitement of Vegas’ early day entertainment.  From gambling, drinking, free concerts, hidden historic artifacts, and a mob museum, our self-guided Downtown Las Vegas walking tour map will help make sure you don’t miss a thing on Fremont Street.

Historical Overview Of Downtown Vegas:

There had been Native American tribes in the Las Vegas Valley for thousands of years, but it wasn’t until John Charles Fremont arrived in 1844 that Las Vegas ( Spanish for The Meadows ) was officially on the map.  Fremont not only charted important trails crisscrossing the American West, but also helped reroute the Old Spanish Trail ( established 1829 ) from Santa Fe to Los Angles near an oasis located in today’s Downtown Las Vegas.  Fremont’s mapmaking, the booming California Gold Rush, and the snow-free Western trail through town helped Downtown Las Vegas grow.

With the railroad arriving in 1905, development along Fremont Street straight out from the train station formed Downtown Las Vegas.  The city’s oldest casino ( the Golden Gate from 1906 ) still stands on Fremont Street, but many other things have changed.  Fremont Street became home to many other firsts in Vegas over the years including the 1st phone in 1907, the 1st paved road in 1925, later the 1st traffic light, and city’s 1st neon light at the Overland Hotel in 1928.

There was a bit of a Speakeasy era in Vegas as gambling was outlawed from 1909-1931 ( drinking 1920-1933 ).  Pressure from The Great Depression and an influx of workers building the Hoover Dam ( 1931-1935, originally called Boulder Dam ) forced them to open gambling back up with the first official Nevada gaming license going to Fremont Street’s Northern Club.  With gambling legal again, Fremont Street boomed through mobster influence although the casinos were mainly dingy sawdust-floored Western-themed establishments.

Finally, Downtown started classing up when the Horseshoe became the first casino to get carpeting and new hotels like Binions pushed the limits to bring in more high rollers.  Fremont Street turned into a sea of dizzying neon marquees nicknamed the Glitter Glutch by the 1940s and started adding large casino complexes by the 1950s.  As the only place in America with statewide gambling from 1931-1979, Downtown Las Vegas became a magnet for Hollywood celebrities looking to escape California.

Today the highlights of Downtown Las Vegas still center on Fremont Street with its mixture of vintage touches and modern technological features.  Visitors looking for flares of Americana and old world Vegas will love the historic neon signage, free nightly concerts, cheap drinks, loose slots, and a compact feel of Fremont Street.  Seekers of more modern flair will enjoy not only the zip line that cuts right through Downtown, but also the Fremont Street Experience which is by far Downtown’s main highlight.

Downtown Vegas Walking Tour:

1. main street station casino :.

Free Downtown Las Vegas Walking Tour Map Fremont Street - Main Street Station Casino

About Main Street Station : The railroad-themed Main Station Casino and Brewery serves as a living museum of Casino antiques in the hotel lobby, main gambling flooring, and even outside.  The antiques can be seen 24 hours a day and the front desk has a really handy self-guided maps showing where each one is and explaining it.  By far the coolest artifact in the Main Station is in the men’s bathroom where the urinals are mounted to an actual section of the  Berlin Wall !  The 12-foot-tall Berlin was was 91 miles long and separated Communist East Berlin from West Berlin during the Cold War from 1961 through 1989.

Other antiques include red granite outdoor street lamps which were made in 1870 and sat in Brussels, Belgium until WW1.  Inside the casino, the main chandelier from the Figaro Opera House in Paris, France .and the ones in the Garden Court Buffet were made in the 1850’s for the San Francisco Opera House.  The main gambling room looks like an old Victorian-Era railway station with exceptional stained glass and brass chandeliers from the 1800s.  The carved Mahogany woodwork in on the hotel’s reception desk was originally the inside of a drugstore in Covington, Kentucky over 100 years ago.  Of the same era, the bronze doors and windows at the entrance to the Player’s Club was once the facade of the Kuwait Royal Bank in London, England.  If you search around the second floor there is a large vintage pool table which was used in the hit 1961 movie The Hustler.

The train and railway theme throughout the hotel is very predominate as you follow the walking tour and these elements are best seen in the Pullman rooms.  The Pullman family owned one of the railway car manufacturing companies in the country in the early-1900s.  The massive wooden doors from their Illinois mansion led the way to the Pullman Grille.  The grille feature a fireplace from a castle in Scotland and a complete railway car once owned by  Little Women   author Louisa May Alcott which you can go inside.  The Main Street Station was also once home to the private railway car used by  Buffalo Bill Cody  and Annie Oakley to travel the country in Buffalo Bill’s Old West Show from 1906 to 1917.  Unfortunately, the Buffalo Bill Car was removed in 2017 for the development of a neighboring tower the rest of the antiques at the casino make it worth a stop.

2. Fremont Street Experience :

About The Fremont Street Experience : The intersection of Fremont Street and Main Street is where Las Vegas was first founded in 1905 and is now the marks the beginning of the Fremont Street Experience.  At the foot of this crossroads is the  Plaza Hotel  ( website ), known as the poor man’s casino.  Even if you are not a penny pincher, head to the top of the domed viewing platform before entering the Experience to get a great elevated view down Fremont Street.

It was here at the Plaza Hotel ( formerly Union Plaza ) where the original  Las Vegas train station  ( Salt Lake Depot ) opened in 1905 to service the Clark Line ( later bought by Union Pacific ).  This route connected Salt Lake City to Los Angles and cut the transportation down to just one day, which was a big feat for the time.  This train traffic led to the founding of Las Vegas, the development of Fremont Street ( paved in 1925 ), and all of the entertainment in Sin City.  While an influx of people was visiting Las Vegas during the construction of the Hoover Dam ( 1931-35 ) the ban on gambling ( 1909-1931 ) and drinking ( 1920-1933 ) were lifted which led to a business boom.  By 1940s Fremont Street was a sea of Neon Lights and Fremont became nicknamed the  Glitter Gulch.

The full Fremont Street Experience is seven blocks long but you’re sure to be drawn to the 4-block-long, 90-foot-wide canopy over the street filled with 12.5 million colored LED bulbs called  Viva Vision .  The entire area really comes to life on the top of every hour from 8pm to 1am when Viva Vision turns into a full-on light and video show synced to music on a concert quality sound system.  The light shows themselves are a reason to put Downtown Vegas on your to-do list, but stay a little longer and you’ll find a lot more to love.

Free Light Show :  Daily 8pm-1am at the top of the hour.   Free Live Music :  With 3 stages there is nightly free live music.   360 Degree Photo :  ( HERE ).   Experience Website :  ( HERE ).

3. Golden Gate Casino :

Free Downtown Las Vegas Walking Tour Map Fremont Street - Golden Gate Casino

About The Golden Gate Casino :  Founded in 1906, the Golden Gate is the oldest casino in Vegas and where it all got started.  As the railroad began to cut through Las Vegas from Salt Lake City to Los Angles, John F Miller started a hotel inside a canvas tent here ( across from the train station ) between 1903-05.  The following year Miller was done with a permanent structure known as the Hotel Nevada ( later the Hotel Sal Sagev ).

In 1907 the first phone in Las Vegas was installed in the busy Hotel Nevada.  Because gambling was made illegal in Nevada in 1909 along with drinking in 1920, the casino had to run underground until the bans were lifted in 1931 and 1933 respectively.  The name was changed to the Golden Gate in 1955 in honor of a group of investors from Oakland California who fronted the money for a large casino expansion in the hotel.

Today the bars are the main attraction at the Golden Gate Casino as they are where Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr drank during the Rat Pack days.  The quality of bartending is just as good today as it was then as the current staff has over 100 bartending championship trophies between them.  An insider tip is that you can get Golden Gate’s renowned, and huge, shrimp cocktails for just $3.99 if you sign up for their free Players Club Card.

4. Cowboy Vic & Vegas Vickie Signs :

Free Downtown Las Vegas Walking Tour Map Fremont Street vintage neon signs vegas vickie Cowgirl sassy sally

About The Vintage Neon Signs :  Make sure to check out the huge  Vegas Vic Cowboy and Vegas Vickie neon signs sitting at Fremont Street’s first covered intersection which are our favorite vintage signs.  The iconic waving Cowboy Vic was added to the Pioneer Club ( 1942-1995 ) in 1951 and his cowgirl partner Vegas Vickie was added to the Glitter Glutch Strip Club ( 1980-2016 ) when it opened in 1980.  Vickie is sometimes incorrectly called Sassy Sally after a strip club that sat next door from 1981 until 1999.

When the Freemont Experience was opened in 1995,  Vic and Vickie were married in a formal ceremony covered by the local newspapers and news stations.  Vickie was removed for restoration in 2017 with plans to bring her back to Fremont Street soon.

Vegas has become known for its dizzying displays of neon lights since the first one was installed at the Oasis Café on Fremont Street in 1929.  This movement helped Downtown Las Vegas become a destination known as the Glitter Gluch and the signs have become an attraction of their own.  More vintage neon signs can be seen later on this Downtown Las Vegas walking tour at Fremont Street East as well as the popular Neon Museum.

5. Golden Nugget Casino :

6. Binion’s Gambling Hall :

Free Downtown Las Vegas Walking Tour Map Fremont Street Binions Gambling Hall

About Binion’s Gambling Hall :  Texas cowboy Benny Binion opened this Casino in 1951 in an effort to class up the neighborhood.  Although it seems outdated now, in its heyday the casino was considered the poshest place to be and forced all the surrounding joints to upgrade.  Binions innovated in other ways than just style when they helped the  World Series of Poker  get off the ground by frequently hosting it at the casino.  This move into televised poker earned Binion’s Gambling Hall ( formerly Binion’s Horseshoe ) the nickname “The Place That Made Poker Famous”.

Binions is also home of the  Million Dollar Photo  ( website ), which is the best photo op in Las Vegas!!  In the Casino’s Player’s Club, you can have your photo taken with the Binions girls and a stack of ONE MILLION DOLLARS in cash!  The huge pile of money is made up of 34,400 $20 bills and 42,000 $1 bills.  The Million Dollar Photo has actually been an attraction at the casino going back to the 1950s and from 1964-1998 the stack was made up of 100 $10,000 bills.  Although the photo opt is free, you are only allowed to go to the Player’s Club if you are 21+ and it is open from 9am-11:30pm.

7. Fremont Casino :

Free Downtown Las Vegas Walking Tour Map Fremont Street Casino Drinks

About The Fremont Casino :  This was one of casino mogul Sam Boyd’s first properties and has some of the best food and drink deals around.  When it opened in 1956 over the site of the former Masonic Temple Opera House ( 1908-1912 ), the Fremont Casino was the tallest building in Nevada.  In 1959 Wayne Newton got his start in Las Vegas at the Fremont in its Carnival Lounge.  This was also one of four casinos ( the only one Downtown ) run by Frank Rosenthal for the mob from Chicago in the 1970s.  Rosenthal’s notorious career ( 1968-1982 ) in Vegas inspired Martin Scorsese’s famous 1995 movie Casino starring Robert De Niro.

Tourists and locals both love the amazing drink specials at the Fremont Casino’s bars including  $1.99 Margaritas .  The food specials are awesome too with a $15.99 prime rib dinner served with a baked potato and buffet on Sunday, Monday, and Thursdays from 4-10pm.  On Wednesdays and Saturdays, they have the same amazing deal but with steak instead of prime rib.  If you are looking for accommodations the Fremont Casino has very nice rooms starting under $40 a night when booked online and more basic rooms as low as $29 a night.

8. Four Queens Casino :

Free Downtown Las Vegas Walking Tour Map Fremont Street Four Queens Casino

About The Four Queens Casino :  Opened in 1966, The Four Queens is named after the builder Ben Goffstein’s four daughters.  The Spirit of The King Elvis Show at 9pm and the neighboring has magician show at 7pm are both pretty good.  The shows are inside the Canyon Club on Tuesday through Sunday, closed Mondays.

In front of the Four Queens Casino is the main stage for the free Downtown Rocks concert series from May through September each year run by the Fremont Experience.  The hotel isn’t the nicest, but they have clean basic rooms as low as $23 on weekdays and $48 on weekends.

9. The “ D ” Casino :

Free Downtown Las Vegas Walking Tour Map Fremont Street - The D Casino Best Hotel Rooms

About The D Casino :  This property was formerly called Fitzgerald’s Casino which was considered to be one of the luckiest casinos in Vegas.  Fitzgerald’s was Irish themed with shamrocks and a leprechaun.  Keeping the charm alive, The D Casino even has a large stone from Blarney Castle in Ireland on display which you can kiss for good luck.  Maybe the coolest gambling here is the oval multi-player Sigma Derby slot machine which is a vintage horse racing game that is fun even if you don’t win.

If you are considering staying on Fremont during your visit, The D is the nicest place to stay in Downtown Las Vegas by a mile.  The modern hotel rooms are posh and very hip yet still offers an excellent value even though it is a little more to stay here than the other basic hotels Downtown.  Even if you aren’t staying at The D, very we love their Long Bar ( it’s very long ) and the VUE Bar where you are able to go upstairs and get great views of Fremont Street .  In case you were wondering the name D stands for Downtown, Derek ( the owner is Derek Stevens ), and Detriot ( Derek ‘s hometown ).

10. Slotzilla Zip Line :

Free Downtown Las Vegas Walking Tour Map Fremont Street - SlotZilla Zip Line

About The Slotzilla Zip Line :  Ever ride a zip line in the middle of a city?  At Slotzilla you have the opportunity to zip above the crowds from a 12 story tall slot machine and glide into the canopy of the Fremont Street Experience.  If regular zip lining isn’t enough, you can also zoom line  in a Superman position !  The ride is a third of a mile and starts 114 feet off the ground.

11. Heart Attack Grill :

Free Downtown Las Vegas Walking Tour Map Fremont Street - Heart Attack Grill Burger Nurses Best Restaurant

About The Heart Attack Grill :  The main attraction of the Neonopolis Mall is the highly entertaining Heart Attack Grill.  Known for their greasy food and costumed nurse waitresses that will spank you in front of the other guests if you don’t finish your meal, the Heart Attack Grill is truly unique.

Claiming to be fighting anorexia since 2005, you eat for free if you are over 350 pounds and the restaurant’s spokesman really did die of a heart attack.  The milkshakes are very rich at the Heart Attack Grill and all of the food is cooked in lard.  Their Quadruple Bypass Burger was ranked by the Guinness Book of World Records for having the most calories in a burger with 9983.  Since then, the Heart Attack Grill has gone even bigger with the Octuplet Burger.  This monster has 8 patties ( 4 pounds of meat ) between layers of chili and 40 pieces of bacon.  If you can eat the entire Octuplet Burger you get paraded out by the nurses in a wheelchair when you leave, but if you fail to finish you get spanked on the butt with a paddle.

Putting the Heart Attack Grill’s hospital theme over the are jello shots served in syringes and wine dripped from hanging bags like they are IVs.  They even give your entire group hospital gowns to wear while you eat.  While the Heart Attack Grill may be the least healthy restaurant you will ever visit, remember that you are in Sin City, a place where being a gluten and overindulging are fully acceptable.  We heard the calories you eat in Vegas stay in Vegas…

Also part of the Neonopolis Mall, we really love the axe, knife, and spear throwing at Ax Hole ( website ).  Fairly new to the mall is the thrilling  Fear the Walking Dead Experience ( website ) which is part maze and part interactive game.  The shopping at Neonopolis Mall isn’t anything special, but there are two really good Premium Outlet Malls ( website ) in Las Vegas with many high-end shops you won’t find in most outlet malls.  One is nearby and connected to Downtown by bus and the other is near the bus depot on the way to the airport.  There is also a really famous World’s Largest Souvenir Shop ( website ) just to the south of here at the intersection of Las Vegas Blvd and Sahara Ave,

12. Fremont East District :

Free Downtown Las Vegas Walking Tour Map Fremont Street - Fremont East District Neon Signs

About The Fremont East District :  This far eastern end of Fremont Street is a great place to see what the original Downtown Las Vegas area looked like more than 50 years ago.  While the other end of street saw its businesses grow into tall towers in the 1950s then covers with the LED canopy in 1995, Fremont East is like an untouched time capsule .

Many visitors in search of the real Old Vegas like to gamble at Fremont East’s  El Cortez Casino which was built in 1941 and is one of the only properties that hasn’t had a significant renovation since 1952.  New York mobster Bugsy Siegel bought El Cortez in 1945, but the city refused him an expansion permit because of his ties to organized crime.  This denial led to Siegel ( murdered in 1947 ) investing in the development of the Flamingo Casino on the Las Vegas Strip which is outside the city limits.  The move also let the mobster know that Downtown Las Vegas wanted to be a little more respectable.

We love the cluster of vintage neon signs in Fremont East.  These historic neon signs include a retro Vegas sign, Oscar’s Martini Glass, the Hacienda Horse and Rider, the Red Slipper, a Showgirl, and a 30-foot-tall can of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer.  A majority of the signs were originally built by built by Yesco ( Young Electric Sign Company, a famous Vegas sign-making company ) and you can see a ton more at the Neon Museum & Boneyard later on this Downtown Las Vegas walking tour.

13. The Mob Museum :

Free Downtown Las Vegas Walking Tour Map Fremont Street - The Mob Museum

About The Mob Museum :  Amazing 3 story museum highlight the artifacts, culture, and history of notorious gangster life from the early years of Las Vegas.  One of the most famous mobsters was Bugsy Siegel, who was the primary force driving the development of Las Vegas as both gambling and booze became illegal in most of the United States.  Mobsters like Bugsy wanted to create an escape from prohibition with glitzy luxury hotels, restaurants, shows and adult indulgences they couldn’t get anywhere else.  The Mob’s influence shaped the city’s earliest development and played a role in its ultimate evolution as the Entertainment Capital of the World.  The Mob Museum does a great objective job of telling both sides of each story they tell whether it’s of rival gangs or both the mobsters and police.

One of the highlights of the museum is the actual  Valentine’s Day Massacre Wall , moved here from Chicago, where Al Capone had members of his rival North Street Irish Gang executed in 1929.  Bugs Moran was the leader of the North Street Irish Gang and had been trying to take Capone and his South Side Italian Gang out for years.  The two groups had run-ins and assassination attempts on each other all over the country but the events of February 14th, 1929 are the most famous.

Capone and his friend Jack “Machine Gun” McGurn came up with a plan to wipe out Moran’s entire gang.  The two men had a 3rd party set up a whiskey sale, but when Moran’s gang showed up they were greeted by the cops.  This wasn’t an uncommon thing to happen so when the cops asked the men to turn around a face the wall for questioning they did.  Unknown to Moran’s gang, the cops where actually imposters in a stolen squad car and unloaded their guns on the gangsters once they turned their backs.  The fake cops pretending to be arrested two of their cohorts when they left in case anyone was watching so they could make their getaway.

When the smoke cleared Bugs Moran wasn’t among the dead, because he had been running late and was scared off by the cop car as he was pulling in.  Although Moran lived, Capone had struck a fatal blow to the North Street Irish Gang.  The company who owned the warehouse through the bullet hole filled wall was bad luck and had it tore down, but a Chicagoland businessman snatched up the bricks in hopes of displaying the wall in a future restaurant he planned on building.  The restaurant never came to be and when the businessman died the bricks found a new home and were re-assembled in the Las Vegas Mob Museum.

Beyond St. Valentine’s Massacre Wall there are hours of activities to keep you entertained at the Mob Museum.  The activities are so wide-ranging that you definitely won’t get bored.  We love shooting the  replica Tommy Gun  and they also have some great exhibits highlighting which mobsters were connected to different Vegas Casinos and another interactive one where you can listen to the  actual wiretaps  the U.S. Government used to bust the Mob operations.  With its great exhibits, The Mob Museum has gained the title National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement.

In addition to the excellent museum, they also have a Crime Lab Experience where you get to hands-on in a crime laboratory. You will explore the work of crime scene investigators, fingerprint analysts, DNA profilers, ballistics experts and medical examiners who determine why a crime was committed and secure information relevant to the case.  A second special hands-on experience the Mob Museum offers is the Use of Force Training .  You will get placed in the shoes of law enforcement officers and exposes them to the types of training exercises officers undergo to be prepared for use-of-force situations.  As part of this training your get to use a CO2 pistol and gun belt while responding to real or perceived threats with “deadly” force.

Hours :  Sunday-Wednesday 9am-10pm; Thursday-Saturday 10am-Midnight.   Cost : $26.95; $33.95 with the Crime Lab Experience; $38.95 with the Use of Force Training; or $41.95 for all three.  They have discounts for locals, kids, militarty, and seniors.  Combo tickets deals available with the Neon Museum and the High Roller Ferris Wheel.   Museum Website :   HERE .

Free Downtown Las Vegas Walking Tour Map Fremont Street - Atomic Liquors Bar Oldest In Las Vegas

About Atomic Liquors :  Four blocks further down Fremont Street from the Heart Attack Grill is the Atomic Liquors Bar, the  oldest freestanding bar in Las Vegas .  Joe and Stella Sobchik had started Virginia’s Cafe here during WW1 in 1945, then saw their opportunity to become a tourist attraction as Vegas was booming thanks to nearby nuclear testing.  In the 1950s there were total there were 100 above-ground nuclear tests ( 828 more underground ) just 65 miles away from Las Vegas in Yucca Flats.  After getting their tavern license in 1952, Atomic Liquors Bar began having rooftop  mushroom cloud viewing parties .  Not yet knowing the dangers of nuclear fallout and radiation, these viewing parties in the 1950s were huge hits and gave Atomic Liquors fame that has lasted the test of time.

In its heyday, Atomic Liquors had a local clientele bolstered by regular visits from celebrities looking to avoid the attention they attracted on the Strip or Downtown Las Vegas.  The likes of the Rat Pack, Barbara Streisand, the Smothers Brothers, Clint Eastwood and other notable characters could be seen enjoying their favorite beverage and playing a friendly game of pool after their shows or productions.  In pop-cultural, Atomic Liquors has been featured in The Twilight Zone  as well as the movies  Casino and The Hangover .  We can’t get enough of Atomic Liquors’ atmosphere, signature cocktails, crisp craft beers, and outdoor beer garden-style patio.

Bar Hours :  Sunday-Wednesday 4pm-2am; Thursday 2pm-3am; Friday 2pm-4am; Saturday 12pm-4am; Sunday 12pm-2am.   Website :   HERE .

15. Neon Museum & Boneyard :

Free Downtown Las Vegas Walking Tour Map Fremont Street - Neon Museum & Boneyard

About The Neon Museum :  The first neon sign in Las Vegas was put up in 1928 at the Overland Hotel on Fremont Street.  The use of neon signs boomed and Sin City, especially Downtown, became a sea of neon through the 1980s.  As aging casinos were replaced in the 1990s many of them moved away from neon to a crazy of individually themed casinos like Caesar’s Palace.  As LCD and LED signage became available the old neon were disregarded at an even faster pace.

Seeing the culture of neon disappearing, the Allied Arts Council formed the  Neon Museum  in 1996 ( expanded in 2017 ) and started an effort to save an important piece of Las Vegas history.  The group worked with  Young Electric Sign Company  ( YESCO ) who had originally manufactured many of the neon signs in Las Vegas.  Some of the signs have been fully resorted and placed back into the Las Vegas landscape including a collection of them near the Neonopolis on Fremont Street which includes the Hacienda Horse and Rider sign.  Other signs have been placed right in the middle of Las Vegas Blvd including the Binion’s Horseshoe, the Bow & Arrow Motel sign, and the Silver Slipper which sits in front of the Neon Museum.

Today the Neon Museum has a visitor center inside the retro lobby of the former La Concha Motel and a 2-acre display yard known as the Boneyard.  While you can see a few of the signs peeking over the boneyard’s fence, taking the official tour is the only way to really see them up close for the full experience.  Before you even take the tour you know it’s going to be awesome from the giant high heel street lamp to the eclectic mix of signs.  The standard tour last one hour, takes you through a staged collection of 120 signs, and includes some very entertaining stories of the of the vintage sign fossils.  There is a great mix of urban decay and bright colors among the massive neon skeletons that will make your photographs really pop.  If you are looking for more private time with the photos you can submit a request for a photo or video shoot.

Guided Tours :  The Boneyard is   available to the public through a one-hour-long guided tour or as general admission.    Brilliant! , a 30-minute show, uses light projection to illuminate unrestored signs and incorporates music and archival footage to transport guests into Las Vegas’ history.  Availability varies and is based on the season.   Cost :  $19 for the Daytime tour; $28 for Night tour; $23 for Brilliant; $42 for Night tour + Brilliant.   Location :  770 Las Vegas Blvd North.   Museum Website :   HERE .

16. The Old Mormon Mission Fort :

Free Downtown Las Vegas Walking Tour Map Fremont Street - old mormon mission fort

About The Old Mormon Mission :  Spanish explorers were in Nevada by 1776 and had even established their Old Spanish Trail ( Santa Fe to Las Angles ) with 100 miles of the Las Vegas.  By 1848, military man and mapmaker John C Fremont added the oasis in Las Vegas to is famous writings which later helped the Mormons and other settlers.  In 1847, the Mormons were pushed from Santa Fe to Salt Lake City but still wanted to connect to the snow-free route to the West and used Fremont’s findings to chart the path Southwest.

In 1855, thirty members of the LDS Church built a small adobe mission fort at the Las Vegas oasis to help link Salt Lake City with Los Angels.  The oasis creek was a prime location as it was the only free-flowing water in the valley which had led Spanish explorers to nickname the area Las Vegas ( The Meadow ).  This Mormon fort was the first permanent, non-Native settlement in the Las Vegas Valley although Native Americans had been in the area for thousands of years.  The 150-foot-long, two-story-tall, square fort served as a re-stocking point, a base camp to try to start a community, and saw traffic from people heading to California for the Gold Rush.

Due to conflicts with local Native American tribes, poor crop harvests, and low mining yields, Mormon Fort was abandoned in 1857.  As more settlers arrived to Las Vegas the old fort was used as a store and a ranch.  Helen Stewart ( nicknamed The First Lady of Las Vegas ) ranch for 18 years before selling land that would become Downtown Las Vegas to the San Pedro, Los Angeles & Salt Lake Railroad ( Clark Line ) in 1902.  The remains of the Mormon Fort and oasis creek were turned into a state park in 1991 and is an interesting place to learn more about the city’s roots.  Next to the old Mormon Fort is the popular Natural History Museum ( website ) which is great with kids.

★★★★★ I love visiting Las Vegas, and this is my absolute top recommendation spot. It’s one of the coolest places I have ever been to! We went at dusk so the lighting for photos was gorgeous and we stayed after dark to watch the extra light show at the end, which was so much fun! Our guide was so wonderful and interesting, I learned so much!

Las vegas travel guides, book your vacation, best historic las vegas landmarks.

Las Vegas is a city where everything appears shiny and new; where old Vegas casinos regularly make way for mega resorts and implosions aren't out of the ordinary (the last one being the Riviera Hotel and Casino in 2016).

Believe it or not, this shimmering city does offer quite a bit of history as well as many classic landmarks. So pull out your maps! It’s time to go on an adventure through history with our list of the best historic Las Vegas landmarks.

Floyd Lamb State Park

Floyd Lamb State Park

This oasis of grass, ponds, and cottonwood trees has been popular since prehistoric times. Home to Tule Springs Ranch, the springs were visited by mammals from the Pleistocene age. Fossils of extinct mammoths, bison, horses, camels, giant sloths, and more have been found here—not by Indiana Jones, but it’s still impressive. The springs at Floyd Lamb State Park later served as a watering hole for prospectors and then in 1916 became home to a blacksmith shop. In the '20s it was a self-supporting ranch and a retreat for prospective divorcees. As you can tell, this place has had more visitors than a hooker on Fremont. This is a whole lotta history in one Las Vegas landmark, so take your family out for a picnic or barbecue and spot wild peacocks roaming the grounds while you take it all in.

Old Las Vegas Mormon Fort Historic Park

Old Las Vegas Mormon Fort Historic Park

Las Vegas was once a dusty stop on a mail service trail between Salt Lake City and Los Angeles and a series of natural springs refreshed travelers en route—sounds like our kind of party. In 1855, the Mormon Church settled in this area and built a permanent structure. The oldest non-Indian structures in Southern Nevada, these adobe buildings, such as the beige and red house portion, are also the oldest historic buildings standing here today. It might look like a pile of dirty old bricks, but that’s Las Vegas history, folks. The Old Las Vegas Mormon Fort is open to visitors interested in learning about Sin City's past and it's just steps away from the Cashman Center and the city's cultural corridor. The Mormon Fort is also within walking distance of the Las Vegas Natural History Museum where you and your family can learn about not just the history of Las Vegas but the entire world. Featuring a wide range of exhibits that explore topics like ancient Egypt, international wildlife, and plenty of dinosaur fossils. As a bonus, the Las Vegas Natural History Museum offers multiple hands-on learning experiences like shark feeding, living history productions, weaving, and even spear throwing.

Springs Preserve

Springs Preserve

This is where the party started a few hundred years ago. Although it might not look like it, Springs Preserve is the birth place of the city. Spanning over 180 acres, this Las Vegas landmark is where you can learn about the city’s past, present, and future. Don’t worry; you’re not walking into a fortune telling booth. They have art exhibits, hiking trails, and it wouldn’t be Sin City without a show. The preserve has become the home to the Nevada State Museum that explore the history of the silver state starting in the prehistoric era, so this sounds like a Las Vegas history jackpot. Cha-ching! Time to cash in.

Golden Gate Casino

Golden Gate Casino

Welcome to the O.G. casino of all old Las Vegas casinos. Golden Gate Casino was the first EVER to open its doors in 1906—that’s about the same time most of our great-grandparents were born…let that sink in. Although it was originally named Hotel Nevada, the casino still sticks to its roots and has never been imploded. This is one old geezer that has more stamina than most of its competition…ya, we’re looking at you, Aladdin.

Las Vegas High School

Las Vegas High School

This is one high school reunion we’d love to go to. Las Vegas High School was the city’s first and only high school until the ‘50s. And because it was such an overachiever, it was placed on the National and Stat Register of Historic Places. If you haven’t caught on yet, this place is obvi historic. With more than 70 high schools in the valley today, this one still remains as the one true bae when it comes to Las Vegas history.

Hoover Dam

Dam Gina, that’s one big structure. Hoover Dam is the pride and joy of historic landmarks near the beautiful city of Las Vegas. The Hoover Dam was built ahead of schedule and under budget (which is hard to believe with the government nowadays). Considered one of the top 10 construction achievements of the 20th century, it’s no wonder everyone wants to see it in their lifetime. And that’s why more than a million people visit the dam each year. We’re pretty cool, but we don’t have THAT many friends.

The Mob Museum

The Mob Museum

“I’m gonna make him an offer he can’t refuse.” Pull out your favorite mob accent and head for a historic Las Vegas landmark that shows the dark beginnings of Sin City in the early 1900s. The Mob Museum is located downtown at the first federal court house where many of these ne'er-do'wells were sentenced for their crimes. The interactive attraction will have your eyes popping out in disbelief and grateful that you weren’t whacked 100 years ago. No need to put on the pinstripes and pull out the tommy guns; they got you all covered. Get ready to jump in the time machine, because this is true vintage Vegas.

El Cortez

Speaking of mobsters, the El Cortez was owned by none other than Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel himself. This old Vegas casino opened in 1941 and has seen more tourists than most of its brother and sisters. In 2013, it became a permanent part of history on the National Register of Historic Places. When you think about it, that’s basically the Oscar of history. Stroll on through—this is pure Vegas.

Little Church of the West

Little Church of the West

Here comes the bride all dressed in…whatever you want. This is Vegas baby, rules don’t apply. Ask Elvis, he’s the expert. Built in 1942, Little Church of the West has become a celebrity Las Vegas landmark. Zsa Zsa Gabor, Judy Garland, Mickey Rooney, Richard Gere and Cindy Crawford – you name the celebrity and they’ve probably been married here. So if you’re obsessed with wedding pop culture, this is the wedding chapel to see.

Neon Museum

Neon Museum

This is the coolest graveyard you’ll ever visit, and spreading over two acres, there’s plenty to explore. The Neon Museum , or as we like to call it, the Neon Boneyard – is where you can feast your eyes on the city’s retired neon signs. You’ll tour past the Moulin Rouge Sign, the Treasure Island skull, and the “atomic” Stardust sign. Our advice? Go at night time to see them all lit up. Ooh, shiny.

A message from our CEO

The next chapter of our Gemini era

Feb 08, 2024


For years, we’ve been investing deeply in AI as the single best way to improve Search and all of our products. We’re excited by the progress, for example with our Search Generative Experience, or SGE, which you can try in Search Labs . AI is also now central to two businesses that have grown rapidly in recent years: our Cloud and Workspace services and our popular subscription service Google One, which is just about to cross 100 million subscribers.

A new state of the art

In December, we took a significant step on our journey to make AI more helpful for everyone with the start of the Gemini era , setting a new state of the art across a wide range of text, image, audio, and video benchmarks. However, Gemini is evolving to be more than just the models. It supports an entire ecosystem — from the products that billions of people use every day, to the APIs and platforms helping developers and businesses innovate.

The largest model Ultra 1.0 is the first to outperform human experts on MMLU (massive multitask language understanding), which uses a combination of 57 subjects — including math, physics, history, law, medicine and ethics — to test knowledge and problem-solving abilities.

Today we’re taking our next step and bringing Ultra to our products and the world.

Introducing Gemini Advanced

Bard has been the best way for people to directly experience our most capable models. To reflect the advanced tech at its core, Bard will now simply be called Gemini. It’s available in 40 languages on the web, and is coming to a new Gemini app on Android and on the Google app on iOS .

The version with Ultra will be called Gemini Advanced , a new experience far more capable at reasoning, following instructions, coding, and creative collaboration. For example, it can be a personal tutor, tailored to your learning style. Or it can be a creative partner, helping you plan a content strategy or build a business plan. You can read more in this post .

You can start using Gemini Advanced by subscribing to the new Google One AI Premium plan , which offers the best of Google’s AI features in a single place. This premium plan builds off the popular Google One service offering expanded storage and exclusive product features.

Video explaining  two new experiences — Gemini Advanced and a mobile app — to help you easily collaborate with the best of Google AI.

Bringing Gemini’s capabilities to more products

Gemini models are also coming to products that people and businesses use every day, including Workspace and Google Cloud:

  • Workspace : Already, more than 1 million people are using features like Help me write to enhance their productivity and creativity through Duet AI. Duet AI will become Gemini for Workspace, and soon consumers with the Google One AI Premium plan can use Gemini in Gmail, Docs, Sheets, Slides and Meet.
  • Google Cloud: For Cloud customers, Duet AI will also become Gemini in the coming weeks. Gemini will help companies boost productivity, developers code faster, and organizations to protect themselves from cyber attacks, along with countless other benefits.

More to come

Developers have been fundamental to every major technology shift and will play an equally important role in the Gemini ecosystem. Hundreds of thousands of developers and businesses have already been building with Gemini models. While today is about Gemini Advanced and its new capabilities, next week we'll share more details on what's coming for developers and Cloud customers.

These latest updates reflect how we’re approaching innovation boldly, and advancing and deploying this technology responsibly. And we’re already well underway training the next iteration of our Gemini models — so stay tuned for more!

Another Super Bowl bet emerges: Can Taylor Swift make it from her Tokyo show in time?

Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift celebrate after the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Championship Game at M&T Bank Stadium in Maryland on Sunday.

The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday night, winning the AFC championship and securing a spot in the Super Bowl . They'll battle the San Francisco 49ers next month, hoping for a repeat of their 2020 victory .

The game is, as always, a big deal for fans of football, memorable TV commercials and elaborate halftime shows. And this year, another fandom is joining in full force: Swifties.

As has been well established, history-making global superstar Taylor Swift is dating history-making Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce. Her attendance at his games throughout the season has sent NFL ticket sales, TV ratings and Kelce jersey demand soaring , converted scores of new football fans and rankled some rivals along the way.

The Kansas City Chiefs will play the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl

Swift has been a visible presence on TV screens and social media memes all season, whether she's cheering Kelce on from his VIP box with an array of family members and celebrity friends, leaving Arrowhead Stadium hand-in-hand with him or simply enjoying a snack .

Travis and Taylor ❤️ — NFL (@NFL) January 28, 2024

She was on the field to celebrate the Chiefs' win on Sunday, where her embrace of Kelce and interaction with coach Andy Reid made headlines of their own.

"Taylor Swift still managed to be one of the biggest storylines from that game despite not being on the field," Nora Princiotti, a staff writer at The Ringer (and a Swiftie) told NPR's All Things Considered .

Naturally, Swift fans were quick to wonder: Will she be in the stands at the Super Bowl too?

The answer is surprisingly complicated because Swift has stadiums of her own to fill.

Pop Culture

A thanksgiving guest's guide to taylor swift and travis kelce.

Swift resumes the international leg of her record-breaking Eras Tour just days before the big game. She is scheduled to wrap up the last of four performances at the Tokyo Dome on Saturday, Feb. 10 — the night before the Super Bowl kicks off in Las Vegas, at 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 pm PT.

Experts say the answer is theoretically yes. And it won't take a time machine, just a private jet. Luckily, Swift reportedly owns two .

"This is a typical international flight and the turnaround is not very tight," says Kevin O'Leary, the president and CEO of Jet Advisors , a Massachusetts-based aircraft acquisition, brokerage and research firm.

Warning: Things are about to get nerdy.

How exactly Swift can "Come Back ... Be Here"

Swift's show is scheduled to open at 6 p.m. local time and generally runs about three hours and 15 minutes. O'Leary — who is not a Swiftie but holds a PhD in aviation operations — predicts a punctual start.

He says Swift could feasibly fly out of either of Tokyo's main airports: Haneda, which is roughly a 30-minute drive from the Tokyo Dome but requires special permission, and Narita, which is about an hour's drive.

"There will be some logistics [and] clearances before the flight will be allowed to depart," O'Leary wrote. "With either airport the flight should be able to depart Japan within 2 hours of the end of [the] concert."

Deepfakes exploiting Taylor Swift images exemplify a scourge with little oversight

That puts her potential departure time around 11:30 Saturday night local time, or 6:30 Saturday morning Vegas time.

O'Leary's calculations also assume Swift would be flying in her Dassault Falcon 7X (which has a slightly longer range than her Dassault Falcon 900, according to The Athletic ). He says the jet should be able to fly the 4,821 nautical miles to Harry Reid International Airport (KLAS) in 10 to 12 hours.

There are always possible complications, from weather disruptions to the expected challenge of securing a landing slot at the airport, due to enhanced safety procedures in anticipation of high traffic that weekend.

Real relationship aside, Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce are 100% in a PR relationship

It's Been a Minute

Real relationship aside, taylor swift and travis kelce are 100% in a pr relationship.

But if all goes according to plan, Swift would arrive in Vegas sometime between 4:30 and 6:30 p.m. PT on Saturday, Feb. 10, thanks to the time change (see this decades-old West Wing clip for an eerily timely — no pun intended — explanation).

That would leave Swift with plenty of time to rest before the game, though O'Leary says she could do so on the plane.

"The aircraft would typically have berthing seats for 4-5 passengers, so the passengers would be able to lay flat, similar to an international business class seat," he explains.

Swift knows private jet travel "All Too Well"

The journey would cost around $45,000, O'Leary estimates. It would generate more than 87,000 pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2), according to a calculator from Paramount Business Jets .

But O'Leary says the Falcon 7X is one of the most fuel-efficient jets in the industry, burning 23% less fuel than the category average.

Swift is no stranger to private jet travel: She has logged days' worth of flights crisscrossing the globe for her Eras Tour shows and Kelce's games in recent months and repeatedly faced criticism for the emissions those flights generate.

Private jet travel is one of the most carbon-intensive things a person can do

"Taylor Swift's Jets," a since-deleted Instagram account that monitors her flights, posted in December that her trips generated 138 tons of CO2 emissions in just the prior three months. A spokesperson for Swift has said that she purchased "more than double the carbon credits needed to offset all tour travel" before the Eras tour started in March 2023.

Fans flying commercial may also notice a subtle nod to Swift (and Kelce) on some of the domestic flights headed to the Super Bowl.

Both American and United Airlines have added flights between Kansas City and Las Vegas in advance of the Super Bowl, with fitting flight numbers: 1989 (Swift's birth year and the title of one of her albums) and 87 (Kelce's jersey number).

Yes way! We also have flights UA 2287 and UA 1587 😉 — United Airlines (@united) January 29, 2024

Swift will be rooting for "Red (Taylor's Version)"

The question of Swift's travel timelines has caused a bit of a frenzy, albeit for different reasons.

Former Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy fanned a conspiracy theory about the Super Bowl being rigged to potentially give Swift — who drove a surge in voter registration with a single Instagram post last year — an even better platform to endorse President Biden, hypothetically.

Other reactions were more celebratory. People flooded social media with time travel jokes and jubilant "Traylor" (or Tayvis, or Swelce) videos. Late-night hosts speculated enthusiastically on air about Swift's plans.

Several fans treated for hypothermia at the fourth-coldest game in NFL history

Fans were quick to draw comparisons to High School Musical , in which the romantic leads' championship basketball game, academic decathlon and theater audition are all scheduled at the same time. (Vanessa Hudgens, who starred in the movie, endorsed the theory as "hilarious.")

Some of the Swift-related questions will likely translate into Super Bowl bets , not only about whether she'll make it to Allegiant Stadium but what she might do there: appear on screen, be accompanied by other celebrities, get engaged, etc.

Sportsbook Review notes that most legal, regulated U.S. sportsbooks "don't generally offer these types of markets, but it's likely they'll try to capitalize on the extra attention Swift brings to the 2024 Super Bowl."

A match made in fandom: Travis, Taylor and the weirdness of celebrity relationships

Pop Culture Happy Hour

A match made in fandom: travis, taylor and the weirdness of celebrity relationships.

Swift isn't just bringing the NFL more viewers, but a whole new — and decidedly more feminine — demographic of fans, Princiotti noted.

"The NFL for years and years has been trying to court women and court more women fans, and to be frank, they haven't always been very good at it," she added. "And they have sort of stumbled into this hyper-influencer who's doing a lot of that work for them really well."

A Swift Super Bowl appearance would all but guarantee a huge boost in ratings, with Poynter reporting that it has the chance to become the most-viewed U.S.-based telecast of all time (even if she's only seen in brief glimpses, which a recent New York Times analysis confirmed has so far been the case).

The star-studded event will also feature pregame performances by Reba McEntire, Post Malone and Andra Day, Tiesto as the first-ever " in-game DJ " and a halftime show headlined by Usher. Swift has reportedly turned that gig down twice.

Taylor Swift resumes the Eras Tour as she hits the stage in Tokyo

Thanks for contacting us. We've received your submission.

Taylor Swift is back!

Fresh off her historic Grammy-winning weekend , the global superstar hit the stage Wednesday to resume her sold-out Eras Tour in Tokyo, Japan.

The “Cruel Summer” hitmaker appeared in good spirits as she kicked off her four-night Tokyo stint filling up the 55,000-seat Tokyo Dome Stadium.

The performance marks the start of month-long sold-out gigs in Asia, including a quick intermission that will see her make a mad dash back to Vegas to attend her boyfriend Travis Kelce’s Super Bowl game on Feb. 11.

Ahead of Wednesday’s Tokyo gig, excited fans lined up in the chilly weather hours before the concert’s start time.

Swift’s Eras Tour had its first show in March 2023, and will run through Dec. 2024.

It’s expected that Kelce will attend several of her shows after he wraps up his football season.

Page Six revealed that  Swift will attend the Super Bowl  at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas as she resumes the international leg of her blockbuster Eras Tour.

Swift has performances scheduled in Tokyo through Feb. 10 — one day before Super Bowl LVIII gets underway, but there is time to fly back and arrive in Sin City on Saturday night.

The Kansas City Chiefs will take on the San Francisco 49ers in Las Vegas.

The pop star will be on tour for much of 2024, taking the Eras Tour to Australia, Singapore, and Europe in the first half of the year, before heading to Canada in the fall.

Over the weekend, Swift became a 14-time Grammy winner and  the first-ever artist to win four Album of the Year awards  after her historic win for “Midnights” at the 66th Annual Awards.

Toby Keith Kept Playing to the End: Country Singer Performed His Final Shows Just 2 Months Ago

Keith's family released a statement confirming the musician had died at age 62 on Monday night

old vegas tours

Toby Keith/Instagram

Performing meant everything to Toby Keith .

On Tuesday, the country singer's family confirmed that he died at age 62 on Monday night after being diagnosed with stomach cancer in the fall of 2021.

Amid Keith's diagnosis, he made sure to keep performing and entertaining crowds until the end.

In October, the musician confirmed he'd be taking the stage in December for two concerts at Dolby Live at Park MGM in Las Vegas on Dec. 10 and 11. He later announced he'd be performing a third Vegas show on Dec. 14.

Keith took to Instagram on Dec. 28 to call the sold-out shows "a damn good way to end the year," sharing a montage clip from the performances.

The country crooner also shared a thankful post on Dec. 31 to see in the New Year, writing: "Been one hell of a year with a lot to be grateful for. Here's to 2024!"

In September, Keith — known for hits such as “Red Solo Cup” and “Should Have Been a Cowboy” —  performed his 2019 track "Don't Let the Old Man In" at the 2023 People's Choice Country Awards .

He attended the ceremony and delivered a speech after receiving the inaugural Country Music Icon Award.

Blake Shelton presented Keith with the award, honoring him for his work as a musician, humanitarian and entrepreneur.

"Bet you thought you'd never see me in skinny jeans," Keith quipped while accepting the honor. "I want to thank the almighty for allowing me to be here tonight. You've been riding shotgun with me for a little while."

During his speech, he thanked his family and team, insisting "A lot of people go into making a big career like this of 30 years."

"Most of all I want to thank the fans for still allowing us to do what we do," he added.

Before his appearance at the 2023 PCCAs, Keith performed two pop-up shows at the historic Hollywood Corners bar in Norman, Oklahoma, on June 30 and July 1.

The performances marked his first since he announced his cancer diagnosis in June 2022 , confirming at the time that he'd already received six months of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.

In November 2022, Keith insisted he was planning on getting back on the road .

"I need a little bit of time to just rest up and heal up," he said during an interview with CMT Hot 20 Countdown.

The singer-songwriter "passed peacefully" on Monday, his family confirmed in a statement.

They posted on X (formerly Twitter) on Tuesday: "Toby Keith passed peacefully last night on Feb. 5 surrounded by his family. He fought his fight with grace and courage." 

"Please respect the privacy of his family at this time," the message concluded.

Toby keith's mom joined him onstage in near-final show before death, toby keith mom joined him on vegas stage ... special show before death, exclusive 2.2k 2/6/2024 4:29 pm pt.

One of Toby Keith 's final concerts before his death was a special one ... with his mom Carolyn making a hilarious appearance on-stage, much to the surprise of delighted fans.

TMZ has obtained footage showing the late country icon in great spirits during a Sin City show on December 12 at the Park MGM Las Vegas ... which sadly ended up being one of his last. His last concert ended up being a couple days later at the same exact venue.

In the video, you can see him bring his mom, Carolyn, onstage -- joking around with her and encouraging her to tell audience members to "go to hell" -- which she did, no questions asked. Everyone got a big laugh out of it, and it certainly served as a sweet moment.

Carolyn was waving and rolling with the punches while sharing the spotlight with her son ... with the bond between them evidently strong. No doubt, it must've been a cherished memory for Toby ... who did, in fact, look a little frail in the clip ... but, for the most part, delivered an epic show with his signature vocals. His fans must have loved this too. — Toby Keith (@tobykeith) February 6, 2024 @tobykeith

As we've reported ... Toby passed away Monday night while surrounded by his family, according to a statement posted to his Facebook page.

He'd been battling stomach cancer ... which he was diagnosed with in 2021. Toby announced the diagnosis in June 2022 ... adding at the time he was receiving chemo and radiation therapy, and had also undergone surgery.

Toby's passing has been a massive loss for the country music world ... during his 3-decade career, he released 24 studio and compilation albums and 2 Christmas records, generating $40 mil in worldwide music sales.

Last September, he also won the Country Music Icon Award at the People's Choice Country Awards 2023 -- a major feat for any country artist.

Toby was just 62.
