Sheena returns solo

May 29, 2001 10:10 AM

Grammy award-winning recording artist Sheena Easton has signed an exclusive agreement to perform at the Las Vegas Hilton beginning June 5 and continuing through September 2.

Easton will perform at the hotel six nights a week (dark Monday) at 8 p.m. She is scheduled to open in the NightClub, and will also have the opportunity to perform in the Hilton Theater, based on its availability.

Tickets for her show will be $45 plus tax and may be purchased at the Hilton Box Office.

Easton, who won a Grammy in 1981 as Best New Artist and again in 1984 for Best Performance for a duet with Luis Miguel, will be singing her hits and a variety of other recordings. She will perform with a six-piece band led by well-known bandleader Lon Bronson, whom many remember for his late-night jam sessions at the Riviera.

Top 40 hits like "Morning Train," "For Your Eyes Only," "Sugar Walls," "Strut" and "U Got That Look" made Sheena Easton a household name in the 80s. She recorded duets with Kenny Rogers ("We’ve Got Tonight") and Prince ("U Got That Look") and became the first artist in history to have Top 5 hits on Billboard’s five major charts: Pop, R&B, Country, Adult Contemporary and Dance.

She recently ended a successful run with David Cassidy at the Rio.
