Twas the first night of ghouls and ghosts and spooks and skeletons, and who better than rocker Rob Zombie to kick off the three-day Halloween weekend. But it also was a night of surprises at the Palms with gorgeous Taylor Dane turning up to sing along with Matt Goss!

First, Rob’s spine-chilling, blood-curdling concert at The Pearl in the Palms brought out a unique fan following dressed to kill, chill and thrill. Our favorite leading lens lady Denise Truscello and contributing photographer Erik Kabik were front and center for this one-of-a-kind photo gallery to mark the dress-up holiday. Or in the case of Las Vegas, the dress-down, trick-or-treat temptations.

Palms owner George Maloof has masterminded an open-resort Halloween weekend for party revelers to hit all of his nightclub and theater venues. Tonight, he has another horror happening at The Pearl complete with a performance by Slipknot that he will be attending.

Matt Goss at Gossy Lounge

Meanwhile, Matt, who has his own Gossy Lounge at the Palms, had a surprise in store for his audience. He introduced singer Taylor Dane, she of the magnificent mane of hair, and then persuaded her to come up onstage for a knockout duet.

Once again, Denise was there doing double duty to capture the second photo gallery of the night!
