Ross will present 12 additional performances of the radiant production at Encore Theater, June 5 – 15; and August 14-24. Honoring her multi-decade career in the music industry, the launch of “Diamond Diana” in February saw sold-out crowds and special appearances by Ross’ family members. Throughout the show, fans can enjoy back-to-back performances of Ross’ renowned chart-toppers, as well as an intimate Q&A with the international music icon. Ross will celebrate her enduring collection of award-winning songs, brilliant new costumes and timeless memories in this exclusive, self-named powerhouse production at Wynn. Among her many accolades, Ross is a recipient of the American Music Award for Lifetime Achievement and a GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award, has been recognized by the Kennedy Center Honors and the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences, is an inductee of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and is a 12-time GRAMMY Award nominee.

MELISSA ETHERIDGE (7/12 – One Night Only)

GRAMMY and Oscar-winning singer-songwriter Melissa Etheridge is set to make her Wynn Las Vegas debut this summer. For one-night-only, Etheridge will bring “The Medicine Show” tour to the intimate Encore Theater on Friday, July 12 at 8 p.m.

With more than 25 million albums sold worldwide, five platinum and three multi-platinum records, and 15 GRAMMY Award nominations and two GRAMMY wins, Etheridge has established herself as a music icon. Recently she released her latest album, The Medicine Show, released via Concord Records. The namesake of her tour, The Medicine Show deals with universal themes of renewal, reconciliation, reckoning, compassion and, most profoundly, healing. Through the songs she processed the deep fears and hurting she saw in the nation on collective and personal levels; “Shaking” about national anxiety, the unifying “Human Chain” about the hope for healing, and the rocking, anthemic “Love Will Live.” More highlights include the album-closer, “Last Hello” drawing on the incredible strengths and courage shown by the survivors of the Parkland school shootings, and the infectious “Wild and Lonely,” and “Faded By Design,” exploring themes of her past with a new perspective.

PAT BENATAR & NEIL GIRALDO (8/2 & 8/3)

GRAMMY Award-winning vocalist Pat Benatar and trailblazing producer and performer Neil Giraldo will make their Wynn Las Vegas debut together this summer in their self-named, two-night engagement at Encore Theater on Aug. 2 and 3. The limited engagement of Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo will serve as part of the duo’s upcoming tour, marking a celebration of the 40th Anniversary of their musical career. Benatar and Giraldo first met in a small rehearsal room at SIR Studios in New York City in 1979 and have since gone on to create two multi-platinum records, five platinum records, three gold albums and 19 Top 40 hits. In addition, together they have sold more than 30 million records worldwide and have won an unprecedented four consecutive GRAMMY Awards. Their undeniable chemistry and unique sound has led to the creation of notable rock hits such as “Love Is A Battlefield,” “We Live For Love” and “Invincible.”
