It’s July 2, 1976. Music legend Neil Diamond is opening the Aladdin Theatre for the Performing Arts, one of the finest stages ever constructed in Las Vegas. The theater is $10 million worth of class. It was designed to be part of the city’s future, but it was built on the city’s past - part of a $50 million hotel expansion financed by the Teamsters Central States Pension fund, a mob-controlled financial institution that had loaned millions of dollars to casinos. The Aladdin loan helped the Detroit Mafia get a big piece of the resort. The fight for Las Vegas was on.
