"America's Got Talent Live In Las Vegas" Debuts September 26 at The Palazzo Las Vegas



LAS VEGAS, Sept. 13, 2012 -- Following weeks of heavy competition and breathtaking performances on NBC's #1 hit television show America's Got Talent, this season's winner Olate Dogs and other top performers, along with fan-favorite special guests, will perform together live in a one-of-a-kind production exclusively at The Palazzo Theatre in Las Vegas.

The live show, produced by FremantleMedia Enterprises and presented by AEG Live and The Palazzo Las Vegas, kicks off an eight-week limited engagement, beginning Wednesday, Sept. 26th.

America's Got Talent Live In Las Vegas will feature season seven winner, Olate Dogs. Led to first place by champion trainer Richard Olate and his son Nicholas, the high-energy act features magnificently coached dogs performing remarkable routines with exceptional agility. Richard, a third generation circus performer, was born in South America to a life of struggle. Performing since the age of 12, his hard work and perseverance brought him to the United States, where he and his son won the hearts of America's Got Talent judges and audiences, capturing first place and a one-million dollar grand prize.

America's Got Talent Live In Las Vegas will be hosted by season seven runner-up, Tom Cotter. Originally from Rhode Island, Cotter is a veteran stand-up comedian who has performed for over 23 years and has won several comedy competitions including the Las Vegas Comedy Festival.

Other fan-favorite performers will include:

Joe Castillo - Astonishing creative artist who tells stories in a unique way with sand, a light table and music as a medium.

William Close - Innovative musician and inventor of the Earth Harp, the longest stringed instrument in the world, with strings that extend up to 1,000 feet in length.

Lightwire Theater - Spellbinding group of performers who use electro-luminescent wire to create characters designed to combine dance, puppetry and a glow-in-the-dark show.

Recycled Percussion - AGT Alumni and "Junk Rock" group featuring gritty musical assaults on buckets, power tools or anything else they can get their sticks on.

Spencer Horsman - The world's youngest escape artist extraordinaire who defies odds with his daring and impressive artistry.

America's Got Talent Live In Las Vegas will perform six shows per week. Show times are:

Saturday through Thursday: 7:30 p.m.

Friday: Dark

Tickets for America's Got Talent Live In Las Vegas are on-sale now and can be purchased at any Venetian|Palazzo Box Office, online at Venetian.com and Palazzo.com or by phone at 702.414.9000.

The new stage show marks a return to The Palazzo for America's Got Talent, which was home to the show's televised "Vegas Week" earlier this summer, along with sister property The Venetian.

America's Got Talent returned this summer with the hottest performers from across the country competing in the blockbuster reality show's seventh season. Bringing the variety show format back to the forefront of American culture each week, the show features a colorful array of hopeful future stars -- singers, dancers, comedic performers and unique acts of all ages. While each contestant has the chance to strut and perform in front of a panel of celebrity judges including Howard Stern, Howie Mandel and Sharon Osbourne, the eventual winner is chosen by the television viewing audience. Since launching in 2006, America's Got Talent has been sold in over 100 countries, with localized versions of the hit being produced in more than 40 countries around the world.
