    We can’t tell you how disappointed we are that Al Pacino was at Love on Tuesday night but didn’t wear his Phil Spector wig. What’s the point of even having a Phil Spector wig?

    He did turn up with girlfriend Lucila Sola, because it’s good to be Al Pacino. We also would like to speculate this means he’ll be playing drums on that tribute show instead of Ringo. Just because that would be kind of great.

    The February 9 CBS special The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to The Beatles will include America’s favorite and only acrobat-adjacent Beatles tribute: Love.

    Cast members from the Cirque show will perform during “Here Comes the Sun” as sung by Pharrell Williams and Brad Paisley. Which our head just exploded trying to envision. They’ll also be part of the finale with Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, of course, plus Steve Wonder and Annie Lennox.

    Everything has already been taped, last Monday right after the Grammies. It’s airing on the 50 year anniversary of The Beatles on Sullivan. Great. But when are we going to get The Night That Change America’s Dinnerware: A Salute to Erich Brenn?

    Mike Myers was at Love Saturday night, making Dr. Evil faces at cast member Dr. Roberts. He was also wearing a Joy Division t-shirt, which is appropriate considering how depressing it is to think about Myers’ post-Austin Powers career (Inglourious Basterds excepted).

    Myers was there with his wife and a friend, but despite all that, the show didn’t stop to do a “Woman” poem, which is really a terrible failure on their part.

    Before his sound booing at the Billboard Music Awards, Justin Bieber took Selena Gomez to see Love Saturday, because apparently they’re back together now. And apparently Taylor Swift wasn’t too happy about Gomez hanging off the Biebs backstage after Billboard.

    Bieber wore sunglasses during Love, because he’s just determined to cement his spot as the douchiest young star in the world (look out, Chris Brown!). But, you know, he’s 19 and doing a pretty good job, and we should probably be focusing on the part where he’s an artist. An artist who wears shiny pants and a headset microphone to craft his art.

    Frank Marino understudy Steven Tyler was still hanging around town this weekend, making the Cirque rounds by hitting up Love on Friday night. It was his fourth time seeing the show, because, again, Steven Tyler is exactly like your crazy old aunt. There’s no way that guy doesn’t own six cats with increasingly elaborate names.


    And then Cirque promptly shoved him in a trunk. (Photo by Ana Dobrijevic)

    Dr. Ken Jeong continued The Hangover Part III’s all-out assault on Cirque shows by checking out Love on Saturday along with his wife. When he went backstage he dropped to the floor to bow to the cast. Bradley Cooper was also at the show on Friday. He also hit up the Qua Baths and Spa at Caesars, where the movie has been doing a lot of its filming over the past few weeks. Cooper was also spotted at Bacchanal Buffet and Rao’s, with Robert De Niro and Randy Couture. Because where else would you expect De Niro to eat? Someplace that didn’t hearken back to a beloved Mafia institution in New York?


    Is it time for us all to admit that Bono is basically morphing into Elton John? (Photo by Bryan Steffy)

    Bono was in town to celebrate his daughter Eve Hewson’s 21st birthday. That … that has to be awkward, right? You just turned 21, and all you want to do is go out and get blitzed, but you’re there with your dad. And your dad is yelling at you about Africa even though there’s nothing you can do about it from inside The Mirage.

    Bono, along with wife, Ali, and a few others, were at the 7 p.m. performance of Love last night — after a birthday dinner Saturday at Tao — working through some vodka tonics and brooding about Third World debt relief. We assume. Bono said his favorite part of the show came during “A Day in the Life,” calling the sequence “Absolutely Amazing.”

    He went backstage after the show and was heard asking the cast when Cirque was going to get around to making a U2-based show. Which means he hasn’t seen Viva Elvis or Michael Jackson: The Immortal.

    The littlest Kardashians — sweet Jesus, please let them be the littlest Kardashians — Kylie and Kendall Jenner were at Love last night while in town to do some promotion for Kardashian Khaos. At what point does having a 14-year-old girl do marketing for your store that sells Khloe-flavored junk basically become the 21st century equivalent of an Industrial Revolution textile factory? But those girls are so good at promotions. It’s because they’ve got such small hands.

    Director Tim Burton, who at this point looks like a shambling-yet-quirky nightmare out of a Tim Burton movie, went with Giles Martin to see Love last night. Burton is in town for CinemaCon — where last night Sasha Baron Cohen stayed in character and threatened to blow up a bunch of execs if they didn’t put The Dictator in theaters.

    Burton yesterday presented the International Filmmaker of the Year Award to Timur Bekmambetov, director of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. So … apparently there wasn’t much going on in the international film scene this year. Suck it, Nicholas Winding Refn.

    Sylvester Stallone also picked up a Career Achievement Award. We’re one Kurt Russell award away from the Tango & Cash sweep.

    If there’s one thing Love didn’t have to worry about last night, it was Predators. Also? This guy.

    That’s because Arnold Schwarzenegger was in the house, checking out the 9:30 performance with a crew of six that did not include Skeletor. Earlier, he ate at Strip House.
