David Letterman Joins Paul Shaffer at Cleopatra’s Barge at Caesars Palace


Last night, musical genius Paul Shaffer took the stage with his talented full band, The Shāf-Shifters, at the iconic Cleopatra’s Barge at Caesars Palace. To kick-off opening night of his limited three-week engagement, Shaffer was joined by television icon and former boss, David Letterman.


For 33 years, Shaffer served as Letterman’s musical director and sidekick. Letterman joined his life-long friend on stage to reminisce with anecdotes and stories from decades of working with the biggest names in music, film and television.

Shaffer then surprised Letterman by introducing Randy Bachman of Bachman-Turner Overdrive and invited the Canadian musician on stage to perform “Takin’ Care of Business,” one of Letterman’s favorites.


Also in the audience was singer, songwriter and guitarist Kenny Loggins. True to the culture and rich history of the classic Vegas lounge experience at Caesars Palace, you never know who might show up on stage each night.


Paul Shaffer performs Sept. 8, Oct. 11 through 13 and Nov. 29 through Dec. 1. All performances begin at 8 p.m. Guests must be 21 years of age or older. Tickets are available online at PaulShafferVegas.com.
