June 8, 2021— To celebrate his July 4th birthday, Tony and Grammy Award-winner John Lloyd Young will return to The Space in Las Vegas on Friday, July 9 with his newest show, Solid Gold, Live From Las Vegas. This fun, wild and unforgettable evening will reunite Young and musical director, Tommy Faragher, with their Las Vegas band as they perform a brand-new set of songs, from disco, classic 70s and 80s, and funk and soul. Gold lame and terry cloth headbands are optional but encouraged.
The Space, an intimate venue just off the Strip, will roar back to life with a full capacity live audience for Young’s birthday concert that will also be live streamed across the world for anyone who wishes to join the party (and boogie) from the comfort of their own home. The 75-minute live performance and live streamed pay-per-view concert for one-night-only will begin at 10:00 PM ET/7:00 PT.
And if you’re not ready for the fun to end, there will be an exciting after party following the concert where Young, joined by his band for the first time in a year, will revisit some of his biggest hits and offer giveaways and special surprises. There will also be a few personal one-on-one conversations with fans from around the world, and in person patrons at The Space can enter their name for a chance to be invited up onstage.
“It’s important to me to celebrate as things start to come back,” said Young. “I wanted to reach back to a time when we just danced our troubles away and also give my Las Vegas band, who I haven’t seen in more than a year, a really fun set to play. There will be some luscious sounds and shimmering disco lights and it’s gonna be a party—my birthday party.”
