The crooner’s 52-acre estate named Casa de Shenandoah in southeastern Las Vegas opens Friday for tours with prices starting at $35.
Fans start at the visitor’s center and then shuttle into the compound to see the entertainer’s memorabilia, house, jet, cars, gift shop and exotic animals, including Arabian horses and the capuchin monkey.
Visitors can even opt for the VIP package with Newton as the tour guide.
Newton had lived on the property for 45 years, but he moved out in 2013 after selling it to CSD LLC.

The plan to create a “Graceland West” attraction to celebrate the singer’s long career had been stalled by a bankruptcy with the business entity.
