PURE Nightclub at Caesars Palace Hotel & Casino was a sight to see as GRAMMY Award-winning artist Pharrell Williams took over the mega-club for a special Memorial Day Weekend performance Saturday, May 25. Arriving to the award-winning hot spot around 12:30 a.m., the former Neptunes member hit the red carpet where he posed for photographers and waved to on-looking partygoers as they flocked to catch a glimpse of the star.
Making his way through the packed nightclub, thousands of clubgoers screamed as he passed by and shook the hands of many. The energy of the main room erupted as Williams appeared at his VIP booth located on the main stage. As the superstar stepped up to greet the crowd, the sea of devoted fans rushed the stage. Preparing for his performance the humble singer relaxed at his table along with a few of his closest friends.
Just after 1 a.m., the lights of the club went dim and the energy of the iconic destination soared with excitement as Williams took his place center stage. “Welcome to PURE,” he stated and continue to talk about his latest project “Happy,” the theme song he wrote for the upcoming motion picture “Despicable Me 2,” and gave his fans a little sneak peak. The hip-hop sensation put on an unforgettable performance as he sang hit after hit including “Frontin’,” “I Just Wanna Love You,” “Excuse Me Miss,” “Blurred Lines” and many more. Throughout the performance he encouraged his fans to sing along as he held his mic out to the audience. Nearing the end of his mini-concert, Williams addressed the crowd and said, “I want to come out there and dance with you!” As he set down his mic and headed towards the stairs, the energy of the room reached an all-time high. As his latest hit “Get Lucky” played, the icon emerged in the middle of the masses, made his way through the dance floor, around the entire nightclub and back to his VIP table while he danced and posed for pictures with his devoted fans.
