    We went to the show on may 17, I think was the date. We only saw him once @ Bill's, great free show. Maybe a little less Elvis music this time,(more songs by others) but still very good.

    Saw the show during Memorial Day week. Same show but definitely a different vibe away from Bill's. He is now located in the Dueling Piano Bar area.

    different vibe meaning better or worse? more formal? I assume Pete still does the Elvisettes, photos, autographs etc etc? I have my Big Elvis shirt ready for Sept that I get him to autograph each trip,

    We saw it a couple weeks back. Seemed less intimate and less "Big Elvis". We enjoyed him at Bill's but this seemed less entertaining.

    I saw his show a few days after he left Bill's. We had a great time. There were less Elvis songs (Pete sang at least 4 songs by non Elvis artists). Chuck's role was the same. They still have audience on stage participation / prizes and they offered to sign autographs / take pictures after the show.

    People who liked the show at Bill's will like the show at Harrah's (perhaps slightly less or more, depending on your preference).

    Was there any charge or minimum drink purchase requirement?

    I see the shows begin at 2:00, 3:30 and 5:00. Do you know how long he plays for each set...an hour?

    I would like to finally see him. Several years ago I stayed at Barbary Coast (Bill's) and still kept missing him.

    no charge to see him and no drink required. i would say his show is 40-45 minutes. we got there at about 2:20, and he played until about 2:40ish i think. then he does pictures and autographs too.

    Blues Brothers act that replaced Big Elvis at Bill's was pretty good too. Worth stopping by to see.
