Superstar CeeLo Green arrived on The Strip tonight and, in his signature flamboyant and over-the-top style, played a flaming piano while parading down Las Vegas Boulevard toward the residency home for his new show “Loberace” at Planet Hollywood.
Green is well-known for his work with Gnarls Barkley, as a solo artist and his big hit “Forget You” and as a judge on NBC’s “The Voice.” “Loberace” debuts in the “Peepshow” theater on Wednesday, with a VIP grand opening Saturday night.
Thanks to photographers Denise Truscello of WireImage, Brian Jones of Las Vegas News Bureau and Tom Donoghue for their photo galleries of the event, which was postponed from last Thursday after the fiery crash on The Strip that left three people dead.
Check back Wednesday for a full report of the arrival from Mr. Vegas DeLuxe Robin Leach.

Catering to the young and modern crowd, Planet Hollywood is a one-stop shop for entertainment with its massive shopping mall, slew of restaurants, spacious casino and clubs.
The ambiance of the casino is retro-chic meets high-tech with black granite floors throughout and colorful LED lights throughout the space. The theme carries into the 100,000 square-foot casino with 250 flat screens topping off slot machines. The casino is also home to 87 tables, a sports book and a poker room.
There's also the Miracle Mile Shops, one Vegas' largest malls, with 140 stores including BCBG Max Azaria, bebe, Urban Outfitters and The Discovery Channel Store.
Following an afternoon of shopping, guests can satisfy their appetites at one of the gourmet restaurants in Planet Hollywood, like the non-traditional approach to steakhouses at Strip House or check out the exotic Far East motif at KOI restaurant and lounge. And if guests are still looking for more, they can spend the after hours at Privé, Triq or Krave nightclubs.
Perhaps one of the resorts biggest attractions came in March with the addition of "Peepshow." The naughty twist on the story of Little Bo Peep is modern-day spin on the run-of-the-mill Vegas topless review. The "Peepshow" stage has seen visiting celebs like Scary Spice Mel B, "Dancing with the Stars" Kelly Monaco and Playboy's Holly Madison.
