Terry Bradshaw Rocks at the Luxor

Terry Bradshaw is performing at the Luxor for a 20-show residency.

There have been a few sports celebrities that have tried and failed to break into music entertainment, with Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal coming to mind, but Bradshaw scores an unexpected touchdown.

Designed as a 70-minute show with sports stories and trips down memory lane, the 73-year-old delivered an entertaining 90-minute show and surprised with a strong vocal performance, despite having had a 12-hour work day earlier in the day with Fox Sports in Los Angeles.

Songs included Brooks and Dunn’s “Boot Scoot Boogie” to open the show, Hank Williams’ “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry”, “Bye Bye Love” by the Everly Brothers and the Louisianan was backed by a very good band which included an 88-year-old guitarist still going strong! Anne Martinez performed “Piece of My Heart” by Janis Joplin as strong as the original during Terry’s only short break from the stage. In between those songs were funny stories and comedy from his long career in football and post-football commentator career.

There was a short downside as he did not know how to drop the screen to project a 5-minute montage of TV commercials and talk show clips, instead projecting upon drapes which made viewing them difficult. They will have that corrected in the future, he promised.

Nonetheless, attendees expecting simply an evening with Terry and football stories got much more than they probably expected, and all in all the show was very entertaining. It was a great show, and if you are in town I suggest you come out to see him.
