Classic Rock worlds collide when Domenick Allen stars in VINYL - The Classic Rock Experience, for one night only, Friday, Sept. 28, 2012, at 8:00p.m., in the Shimmer Cabaret at LVH (Las Vegas Hotel & Casino).

Domenick, formerly with Foreigner, will lead 10 of Las Vegas' finest musicians to shake the walls, and rock the house, in an exciting show that re-visits and re-imagines some of Classic Rocks most popular platinum hits. You can take it from this writer, Allen literally explodes on a stage, and can play just about any instrument ever invented. One small side note on my friend--he is a collector of anything to do with his favorite entertainer, Sammy Davis Jr.

Domenick Allen

Famous for his high-energy vocals and versatility on many musical instruments, Domenick said, “We want you to hear Classic Rock that you know and love as if it’s for the very first time!”

To make the evening unique, Domenick will share the stage with a very special guest, a true Rock Icon: the legendary Denny Laine, former lead singer/co-founder of the Moody Blues, and co-founder, along with Sir Paul McCartney, of Wings. For the first time on any concert stage, Domenick and Denny will combine their talents to create an unforgettable musical event. Experience the music of The Beatles, Wings, Foreigner, The Moody Blues, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Chicago, and all the great rock bands of the past, right up to today’s fabulous groups.

Stop anything you had planned for this particular evening, and take yourself, and some friends, to the LVH for a night to remember. A night you watched the very performers, the ones who actually were there when the hits were created, and helped to make them hits. You will be hearing them performed right there in front of your eyes and ears. Don’t miss this amazing evening with Domenick Allen and Denny Laine in VINYL - The Classic Rock Experience,” and help them celebrate what makes Classic Rock Classic!
