Hi everyone! This is a really strange question, but I'm obsessed with ukulele, and I'm visiting Las Vegas soon, and I heard a rumor Bette Midler's pink-rhinestone-encrusted ukulele is on display at one of the hotel/casinos. Can anybody confirm this? I'd hate to miss out on that photo op ;)
Cheers to you all!

I know that her uke was for sale for charity last year unless a new Casino bought it and is displaying it someone now owns her uke. Went for about 8,000 I believe. There was a copy of her ukulele (flea I understand made two of her design) that used to be for sale at Cesar's Palace. Funny...both my parents taught Bette when she attended Radford High School here in Hawaii.

That's cool Mike, that your parents were Bette Midlers teachers. Ukulibrarian I don't know anything about Bette's uke and Las Vegas. Sorry.
