Las Vegas Based Lady Gaga Impersonator Tierney Allen Mentions to Us That She Will Have Good News to Share Soon: Talented Performer is Fighting Breast Cancer
Yesterday, the Reno Gazette featured an article stating that Las Vegas has the highest unemployment rate in metropolitan areas in America with a population over 1 million. It was reported that the Entertainment Capital of the World currently has an 11.5 percent jobless rate.
The coronavirus pandemic has severely impacted Las Vegas. Less tourism, in a town that heavily relies on the hospitality industry for employment, means less jobs. The tourism industry here has laid off thousands of workers since last spring.
In November, past CYInterview guest/Lady Gaga impersonator Tierney Allen, along with her family, were featured in a CBS News Original program about the economic struggles many are facing in Las Vegas, due to Covid-19. If you have not seen it, you can find it on YouTube by clicking here.
Additionally, Ms. Allen has been battling breast cancer. She speaks about that challenge in the CBS feature. We at CYInterview wish her the best as she continues her treatment and recovery.
With that in mind, it is important to remember that even in challenging times, positive things can and do happen. I text chatted with Tierney recently. She mentioned that she will have some good news to convey in the near future. We look forward to sharing it here on CYInterview.
We had the Lady Gaga tribute artist on CYInterview in 2019, when she was part of the longest running show on the Las Vegas Strip, Legends in Concert [see here] at the Tropicana Hotel and Casino. Her act, as Lady Gaga, is authentic and entertaining.
Since the pandemic, much of Las Vegas has been closed. Owing to that, Tierney and her Elvis impersonator husband Travis Allen have been performing as part of an online show called Stars in Quarantine. You can find more information about it by clicking here. Please support these wonderful performers.
Inevitably, things will get better. Las Vegas will be back better than ever. Keep the faith! Stay Safe.
