WELCOME TO Kimo’s Vegas ... The Player’s Edge!
IT’S OFFICIAL: Britney Spears brings her “Circus” tour to the MGM Grand Garden Arena April 25. At $695 each, VIP tickets sold out as quickly as they went on sale ... Die-hard fans can buy regular tickets on eBay or Craigslist starting at $300. Ladies, your dates will most likely want to be on time because the Pussycat Dolls, with Hawaii-born Nicole Scherzinger, will be the tour’s opening act.
YOU MAY NOT BE a rock star, but you can stay in a hotel known for its rich and famous clientele. Now through Dec. 24 it’ll cost you $89 a night, but if you buy one, they’ll give you one (night) for free and throw in a spa comp, a VIP clubbin’ pass, a $25 dining credit and $25 in free slot play. Call 866-395-7787 and use the code OPER3333. At this price, you won’t be in a $25,000-a-night Fantasy Suite, but you can brag to all your friends that you stayed at the Palms.

CHECKING OUT the show about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons called Jersey Boys at the Venetian was Steve Wynn and Barry Gibb ...

Speculation is that Steve Wynn’s newest hotel, Encore, will host a show about the life of the Brothers Gibb called Stayin’Alive late next year.
IT TOOK 360 eggs, 350 pounds of sugar, 180 pounds of honey, 90 pounds of chocolate (and a few other ingredients) to make the oneof-a-kind gingerbread display in the lobby of the Four Seasons.
