Newton’s newly revamped show is intended to give the audience an inside look at his professional career that has spanned over 50 years in Las Vegas and around the world. As Newton takes the stage the crowd is ready with superb accolades from a standing ovation to women crooning over him as he strolls to the microphone.

The stage is set with several large screens which are used throughout the show as Newton describes working from a young child of 15 years old to his present day appearances. During the show he highlights several of his songs with a detailed story of how, when and why he decided to create, produce as well as sing a particular song.

Wayne Newton Las Vegas show begins with going over his career of working with people like Jack Benny, Lucille Ball, the Rat Pack and more. One song that is showcased is Daddy Don’t You Walk So Fast, which Newton explains why he walked out of a ten year contract with Capitol Records because they rejected him singing this song on an album that eventually sold more than 1 million copies.

Another highlight of the Wayne Newton Las Vegas performance is when he talks sincerely about a show he performed as a duo with the late Glen Campbell. When the video screen lights up with a taped version of the show, Newton tears up in a genuinely sincere way that is conveyed to the audience. Throughout his performance Newton interacts with the crowd answering questions with detailed explanations and he does not shy away from throwing a few kisses, hugs and flowers to the crooning women.
