The Black Keys were in Las Vegas, NV on Saturday where the rock band was one of the headlining performers on day two of Life Is Beautiful Music & Art Festival. The band treated fans to a mix of old and newer material during their 20-song set, which came to a thrilling end when they invited “Mr. Las Vegas” aka Wayne Newton to join them in their show-closing performance of “Lonely Boy“.
Newton appeared to be thrilled at the opportunity to join the Black Keys on stage, as a huge smile was seen covering his face as he walked onto the stage in a black leather jacket with that lush and shiny trademark head of hair to match. Newton looked like one of the fans in the front row as he started to enthusiastically swing back and forth as the band started into the lively intro of their 2011 rock single. Newton didn’t handle any lead vocal work by himself but showed plenty of enthusiasm and confidence when singing along to the group chorus lines.
Watch the special sit-in from Saturday night below.
