He became ‘Mr. Las Vegas’ and is still going strong despite losing his money and various health issues – look at this icon today

Wayne Newton, known as “Mr. Las Vegas,” has enjoyed a legendary career in entertainment. Born in Roanoke, Virginia, on April 3, 1942, Newton faced significant health challenges, including severe asthma, leading his family to move to Arizona for his recovery. By age 15, Newton and his brother Jerry began performing at the Fremont Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Initially booked for two weeks, they stayed for a year. Newton recalled, “No matter what you were doing in a casino, you had to be 21, so I needed a work permit at age 15.” Newton’s career was supported by legends like Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr., who taught him the importance of discipline and adaptability.

“You must be disciplined and treat every show like it’s your last one—because one day it will be,” he shared. In the early 1960s, Bobby Darin helped Newton launch his solo career, leading to hits like “Danke Schoen.” Newton performed up to six shows a night, six nights a week. “I really don’t know any other way to work,” he stated.

Despite a net worth of $50 million, Newton continues to perform. “I’m still able to physically do what I want to do on stage… and to see the happiness that those songs bring people,” he explained.
