Opera singer Russell Watson performs at Wild Horse Pass Hotel & Casino as part of an amazing comeback many never expected.  Watson is battling back from successive surgeries to combat two brain tumors which nearly ended the talented tenor’s career.  Throughout the ordeal Watson has maintained the voice which first brought him to stardom in England.
