The singer-songwriter admitted his decision to sign the deal for Las Vegas came after a discussion with his son Miles.
He told the LA Times newspaper: ''My 21-year-old son, I said to him, ''Miles, what do you think about me playing Vegas?'' He said, ''Oh, my God, dad, that'd be the coolest thing in the world!' 'So it's just time.''
