HAKKASAN LAS VEGAS RESIDENT DJ TIËSTO TO EXTEND MULTI-YEAR CONTRACT
Hakkasan Las Vegas Nightclub at MGM Grand Hotel & Casinohas announced it will extend Tiësto’s contract to an exclusive multi-year agreement. The GRAMMY Award-nominated icon is set to continue his “Club Life” residency at Hakkasan Nightclub and his “Republic of Tiësto” residency at the daylife destination WET REPUBLIC.
“We are delighted to continue our partnership with such a talented and creative artist, particularly on the heels of the monumental year he just experienced,” said Neil Moffitt, CEO of Hakkasan Group. “Tiësto continues to bring a spectacular level of entertainment to his performances at Hakkasan and WET REPUBLIC and we are thrilled to see what he has in store for the coming years.”
It has been an amazing year for Tiësto who in June released his first artist album in five years entitled A Town Called Paradise. Inspired by Las Vegas, the album yielded his first two gold singles in the U.S. with “Wasted” featuring Matthew Koma and “Red Lights.” Most recently, in December, Tiësto was nominated for a GRAMMY Award in the Best Remixed Recording, Non Classical category for his remix of John Legend’s “All Of Me.” This is the artist’s second GRAMMY Award nomination; following 2008’s inclusion in the Best Electronic/Dance Album category for Elements of Life.
The nightclub is open Thursday through Sunday from 10 p.m. until late. Guests must be 21 years of age or older. Cover charges and table reservations will vary.
