    Pat DiNizio, lead singer of The Smithereens, has launched his latest show entitled "Confessions of a Rock Star" at Riviera Hotel & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip. The production is a hybrid of a one-man show, rock concert and multimedia event covering DiNizio's 32-year career in rock 'n' roll. How hot is that shit? Sounds like an original production, that's for sure.

    A live band performs the hits that shaped DiNizio's childhood, paying tribute to his musical heroes such as Buddy Holly and The Beatles, and includes chart-topping songs from The Smithereens. Video screens show rare footage and photos that accompany the musical journey from life in New Jersey to rock 'n' roll stardom. Ah, the Dirty Jerz!

    "This show is a chance for me to pay tribute to the kings of rock 'n' roll," said DiNizio. "After more than three decades of performing, I am excited to bring this experience to the Las Vegas Strip and Riviera Hotel & Casino."

    Tickets to "Confessions of a Rock Star" are $29.95 and can be purchased at the Riviera box office, online at www.RivieraHotel.com or at 702-794-9433. Showtime is 7 PM Wednesday – Monday nights.

    Are you going to see this show and enjoy some DiNizio rock?
