Veteran Las Vegas entertainer Tony Sacca passed away Monday.

His friend and publicist Jackie Brett was texting him the night before and woke up to the news of his heart attack.

"This one is changing my life personally," she said. "I can see that I'm going to have to re-evaluate what's important to me because when somebody can go that fast cause he wasn't sick it makes you rethink things."

Sacca has been performing for more than 50 years and has been a Las Vegas staple since 1981. He recently headlined a matinee show at Bally's called Vegas the Story. It was announced earlier this month that the Bally's show had been extended.

"He was just a part of the fabric of Las Vegas it's a shock that he's not here with us now," entertainer Lance Burton said.
