    That's kind of a weird combination with the Runaways on the same bill as these two bands. It's like the night when Jimi Hendrix opened for the Monkees.

    Exactly. Debut Albums barely out (or just released their 2nd ones) for both the Opening Acts...undoubtedly.

    Especially amazing considering Runaways only BIG HIT (I think) was "Cherry Bomb" and that song was...simplistic (music & lyrics-wise)...at best

    Cherie Curie just too sexy though....today she carves statues out of trees......with a chainsaw...link after the vid

    HUGE in Japan, The Runaways....(Cheap Trick, also...huge in Japan)

    I should acknowledge the show, thus the marquee...was in Detroit, not Vegas lol.

    ...I just couldn't resist though.

    Hacienda Hotel in Las Vegas use to provide free flights from L.A. to Vegas, cocktail in every hand and fashion models walking the aisles.


    For $27.50, you would get a deluxe room, bottle of champagne and $5 in chips for the casino. The flights were popular. More visitors were arriving at McCarran terminal by the Hacienda’s fleet of 30 planes than all the commercial airlines combined. This led to a dispute with the Civil Aeronautics Board, which officially stopped the flights in 1962.

    Love seeing all these old pics. My Dad always stayed at the Stardust, and when I started going in the 80's, that's where I always stayed. They always treated me well and I loved gambling there.

    Legendary for the Handicapping education that was available there from the Old Timers that basically lived in the book at Stardust. "College of Sports Betting" really. Spent Sundays most generally at Imperial Palace...across the street IIRC.

    And if the tables were hot and the players won, the flight back was cancelled and the patrons were given free rooms......the hotel knew that the money was coming back......favorite trick of the Dunes and Sands......
