Matt Goss plays at 7:30 p.m. at the Mirage with a big band and four dancers called the Dirty Virgins.

The British-born singing sensation has a sleek style, and the crooner engages the audience as he gets up close and personal with them. It’s a relaxed atmosphere in the intimate club reminiscent of the Rat Pack era.Goss’ talents proclaim him the New King of Vegas.

Upcoming shows are Tuesday, Friday, Saturday, Jan. 28 and 30. For tickets and more dates, visit mirage.com.

“Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man” is a show targeted at the millennial crowd at the Paris nightly. Chester Lockhart of MTV fame and Scheana Shay from the show “Vanderpump Rules” star in this musical comedy.

Salon.com calls it “a cannily entertaining romp through the nuts and bolts from the male perspective.”

The New York Post says, “It’s straightforward and saucy.” It’s a great show for women and young couples and very, very funny.
