One of today’s top headlines is that Las Vegas Sands is selling the Venetian and the Sands Expo and Convention Center. Although these properties will remain (under new ownership), this basically means the end of major U.S. operations for the company. The sale comes about two months after the death of Sands founder Sheldon Adelson, a man who had outsized influence on Las Vegas culture. This major shakeup in Nevada business led me to choose “Waking Up In Vegas” by Katy Perry as the Song of the Day.
Recently Katy Perry visited with U.S. troops in New York. Fans will get a chance to see Perry on the big screen when her 3D movie, “Katy Perry: Part of Me,” hits theaters over the July 4 weekend. For more information, check out this video:
