    This is such sad news. Greg possessed an amazing knowledge of Vegas and its entertainment and he was always so willing to share so that our enjoyment would be so much greater. What a difference this kind and joyful gentleman has made to so many lives. RIP, Greg.

    This is so sad. His posts were among those I always looked for.

    It's hard to imagine someone could go so quickly.

    RIP, GregRio.

    He was my reference in buying show ticket. I always asked him if my seats were good. He always replied to me the same day. I will miss him. He was a big part of VMB family.

    Wow, I'm shocked to hear of Greg's passing. I think whenever someone new posted questions about shows, he was probably everyone's first thought... "GregRio should chime in on this" or "where's that post on this one from GregRio from a while back". He was always so helpful and friendly. Man, what a loss to the members of this board. :cry:

    Not the kind of Vegas info I enjoy.
    RIP Gregrio. I know you received the best seat in the house.
    Thanks for being part of my life, if only online.

    I've been away from the board for a number of months and rarely come into the entertainment thread, but something told me I should. I am truly sorry to hear of GregRio's passing. Last summer when we went to LV I followed his advice to others regarding a show we wanted to see. The seats made the show awesome. I always read whatever he wrote. He always gave such good advice. He will be missed by everyone on this and other boards. My condolences to his family and friends. RIP Greg.

    Thanks Westie

    I considered Gregrio the go to expert on shows.

    Thanks Gregrio for your posts, always informative.(I am assuming Greg is still logging in up there).

    Our condolences to his family.

    So Sad

    So sorry to hear of this loss. He was a valued resourse for this board as he was considered 'Mr. Entertainment' by many here.

    He will be greatly missed.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
     
    Next trip
    Downtown!

    I'm just catching this now.. Very sad news.

    I'm not a "show" guy and rarely got to Vegas shows.. But I always respected his opinion and read his posts to see what was going on in that world. Been reading his posts for many years.

    Crazy to see the outpouring of people who've never met him sending his condolences. Thats some powerful stuff.

    RIP greg.
