When asked about Las Vegas, Ann-Margret said she has not been there in many years. She added, “It has been so long, I really don’t know what it’s like now. But I have very fond memories, so many good friends there. I have good, warm, fabulous feelings about Las Vegas. Performing there helped me put three children through college.”
