Crawford Returns to MGM Grand

May 25, 1998

LAS VEGAS (AP) _ Singer Michael Crawford returned to the MGM Grand Hotel and couldn’t let the irony go unnoticed.

``It’s great to be back in Las Vegas″ and the MGM Grand, Crawford joked with his audience Saturday, particularly on Memorial Day weekend ``when we honor those fallen in the line of duty.″

Crawford, 56, sued the MGM Grand in January, claiming he was unfairly fired after he was repeatedly injured while performing stunts in the $40 million ``EFX″ show at the hotel-casino.

MGM officials have declined comment on the lawsuit.

Crawford, who gained international fame for his starring role in ``The Phantom of the Opera,″ stopped at the MGM Grand as part of his second world tour, which began in March.
