Lance Burton Monte Carlo fireSince the fire at The Monte Carlo last week in Vegas, Lance Burton’s show has been down. While the fire was contained to upper floors of the hotel and his show was not affected, he hasn’t been able to resume his regular performance schedule.

Lance is hoping to resume shows this Thursday, but has not had confirmation. He told Robin Leach of Vegas Luxe Life “He tells me he checked every square inch of his theater and “all is fine and ready to go.”

When evacuated guests were permitted to retrieve their belongings, Lance did magic tricks in the lobby to entertain them.

You never know when your street magic skills will come in handy!


  1. I’d gladly leave my room to see Lance Burton do close up magic in the lobby of my burning Resort. Hell Yes!

  2. Burton is a closeup master… so is Copperfield… so are most of the grand illusionists. That would have been a real treat to see.

  3. Mitzi I can anewsr this because my family lives down there! You are outside of my color planting schedule by about a month. The trick is, Las Vegas gets so hot in the summer, but you can grow almost all winter long. My book is really for a spring-summer-fall planting schedule. The dates I offer might work for you and others who live in warmer climates, but really have a spring-summer and a fall-winter season. I am very aware of your needs, and it?s on my list of things to research and write about. But honestly, I can?t speak from experience, only from my research. I encourage you to contact your local extension service ( for a recommended planting schedule.
