Magician Burton to stay in Vegas 6 more years

Magician Lance Burton is staying on the Las Vegas Strip for another six years.
Burton and the Monte Carlo hotel-casino said Tuesday that they have agreed to a new contract that will keep him as the resort's headliner through 2015.
The 49-year-old illusionist says he plans to return to the stage next week after breaking his right foot during a show in May. Burton says he is still wearing a large boot but hopes he can switch to a tennis shoe soon.
Burton began his Las Vegas career 27 years ago with an eight-week trial engagement at "Folies Bergere," which turned into a nine-year run.
