Immediately following the final number of MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET, Taylor was welcomed to the stage by Marc D. Donovan (Sam Phillips) to an enthusiastic response from the packed Showroom. Jamming on stage with the talented performers of MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET, the performance brought together two of the most talented musical acts on The Strip in a rocking one-night-only performance.
Taylor is the second guest performer to join the Las Vegas company on stage at Harrah's. In August, Bally's Las Vegas headliner Véronic joined the cast to perform a phenomenal rendition of the Johnny Cash and June Carter duet "Jackson."
