Among the presenters were Assistant Director of Audio Visual Services Tyrone Kelley, Theatre Technical Operations Manager Scott Tabura, and Box Office Manager Ellen Szorady-Childs.
AEG Live Senior Vice President John Nelson fielded questions from students about the variety of rewarding jobs in production and promotion, including booking, marketing, artist management, and more.

The Moody Blues – Justin Hayward (lead guitar, vocals), John Lodge (bass guitar, vocals) and Graeme Edge (drums) – appeared on stage for a special Q&A with the attending students. Highlights from the session include:
  • Student: “Who are your favorite musicians?”
  • John Lodge: “The ones I listened to growing up. The music that you listen to now will be with you for the rest of your life.”
  • Student: “How do you start a band?”
  • Graeme Edge: “Come together with friends who play instruments and you’ll start meeting other people who play instruments. Before you know it, you’re in a band.”
  • Student: “How do you pursue a career in music?”
  • Justin Hayward: “Follow your heart. If music is what you want to do, you have to pursue it and keep pursuing it.”
The Moody Blues have been at the forefront of the classic rock music scene since the ’60s with their multi-Platinum, Platinum, and Gold albums and singles hitting Billboard at #1, Top 5, Top 10, Top 20 and Top 40.

Six-String Soldiers to Open the First Two Performances of “John Fogerty – Fortunate Son in Concert,” September 14 and 16 at The Venetian Las Vegas

Six-String Soldiers, a four-member ensemble of The United States Army Field Band, will take the stage at “John Fogerty – Fortunate Son in Concert,” September 14 and 16 at The Venetian® Las Vegas. The acclaimed quartet will open for the legendary singer, songwriter and guitarist, as he returns to The Venetian Theatre for a nine-show engagement, September 14-October 1. The performances coincide with National POW/MIA Recognition Day on September 16 which honors those who were prisoners of war and those who are still missing in action.

 

 

“I am honored and excited to have Six-String Soldiers opening my show, Fortunate Son at The Venetian Las Vegas,” said Fogerty. “Having served in the military myself, I feel it is important that we bring awareness to ensure that we take care of the condition of our veterans. It is a cause that is very dear to my heart.”

 

“Six-String Soldiers perform regularly at veterans’ association gatherings and provide a positive outlook,” said Fogerty. “I also love the fact that they play joyful bluegrass acoustic music. I am a big fan of them and love what they are doing for the guys and gals who serve and have served our country. I’m looking forward to having a great time with these guys.”

 

Six-String Soldiers is known for performing Americana, folk, bluegrass, and Irish music in an informal setting. The group brings its signature style to the smallest, most intimate venues, the busiest public places, street festivals, and music festivals across the United States. With its focus on audience interaction and sharing its members’ stories and experiences as American Soldiers, Six-String Soldiers offers one of the most personal musical experiences found in the United States Army. The group’s videos are popular on Facebook, YouTube and they have appeared on national shows such as Conan O’Brien and Morning Express with Robin Meade on HLN.

 

With a career spanning more than 50 years, Fogerty is hailed as one of the most influential musicians in rock history. Fogerty wrote, sang and produced numerous classic hits including “Born on the Bayou,” “Green River,” “Proud Mary,” and “Bad Moon Rising,” which led him to be named one of the 100 Greatest Guitarists (No. 40), 100 Greatest Songwriters (No. 40) and 100 Greatest Singers (No. 72) by Rolling Stone Magazine. Earning induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame, he now adds author to his long list of accomplishments with his memoir “Fortunate Son: My Life, My Music” released last fall. The autobiographical account takes readers through the highs and lows of Fogerty’s life and musical career as a member of Creedence Clearwater Revival and as a solo artist.

 

“John Fogerty – Fortunate Son in Concert,” produced by Julie Fogerty and directed by Ken Ehrlich and Raj Kapoor, in association with AEG Live, runs September 14 – October 1, 2016. Tickets start at $59.50 (plus applicable fees) and are now on sale at any Venetian or Palazzo Box Office, online at www.venetian.com/JohnFogerty or by calling (702) 414-9000 or (866) 641-7469.

AEG Live and The Venetian® Las Vegas Announce

The Essential Diana Ross: Some Memories Never Fade

at The Venetian Theatre

Diana Ross, named “Most Successful Female Vocalist of All Time,” to
take the stage for nine performances beginning Wednesday, April 1, at 8 p.m.

Tickets available Friday, January 30, at 10 a.m. at Venetian.com/DianaRoss

AEG Live and The Venetian Las Vegas announced a special nine-show engagement at The Venetian Theatre with world-renowned legend Diana Ross. The Essential Diana Ross: Some Memories Never Fade will perform April 1-18, 2015. Tickets go on sale Friday, January 30, at 10 a.m.

 

Diana Ross’ famed and remarkable career spanning almost five decades has included major awards and accolades, and music history milestones. One of the most prominent women in popular music history, Ross is inarguably a consummate performer and significant contributor to the world of pop culture music in the late 20th century.

 

The legendary singer will perform nine show dates: April 1, 3, 4, 8, 10, 11, 15, 17, and 18

 

“Las Vegas attracts the biggest names in the world, so it is only fitting that one of the most remarkable entertainers of all time brings her talent to a uniquely intimate stage,” said John Nelson, senior vice president, AEG Live Las Vegas. “This limited engagement will allow audience members an unforgettable experience with a living legend.”

 

A unique presentation designed especially for The Venetian Theatre, The Essential Diana Ross: Some Memories Never Fade will highlight the original diva’s illustrious career that has spanned more than five decades. From Motown classics (“Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”) to pop favorites (“I’m Coming Out”) and heartfelt hits (“Endless Love”), the limited engagement production features a carefully curated set list covering Ross’ musical milestones. Set inside the intimate Venetian Theatre, audiences will feel as though they can “Reach Out and Touch” the singer, who Billboard named “Female Entertainer of the Century.”

 

“The Venetian Las Vegas has established itself as a premier luxury destination, which includes some of the finest entertainment offerings on the Strip,” said John Caparella, president and chief operating officer for The Venetian, The Palazzo and Sands Expo.  “We are looking forward to adding to that reputation when Diana Ross steps onto the stage of The Venetian Theatre on April 1.”

 

Beginning in the ‘60s, as lead singer of the world-renowned group, The Supremes, Ross achieved the unprecedented feat of 12 number-one singles in the U.S. becoming the most successful American group in history and rivaled only by The Beatles for the position of the biggest hit group of that generation. Diana Ross went on to achieve six number-one singles as a solo artist amassing a total of 18 number-one hits. Diana Ross’ phenomenal music career is marked by chart and commercial successes. In the U.S. alone, to date, she has tallied 31 Top Ten singles and 14 Top Ten Albums selling over 100 million units around the globe.

 

Career milestones include induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, The Songwriters Hall of Fame, National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (NARAS) Hero Award, NAACP Entertainer Award, Billboard’s Female Entertainer of the Century Award, The Soul Train Legend Award and International Lifetime Achievement at the World Music Awards. The icon is forever cemented in history with two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  “Stop! In The Name of Love,” “Where Did Our Love Go” and “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” have all been inducted into the NARAS Hall of Fame.  “Stop! In The Name of Love” and “You Can’t Hurry Love” are among The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s Songs that Shaped Rock & Roll. In February 2012, The National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences bestowed one of its highest honors to Ms. Ross by presenting to her the Grammy’s Lifetime Achievement Award.

 

Tickets, starting at $59.50 (plus applicable fees), go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. at any Venetian or Palazzo Box Office, online at Venetian.com/DianaRoss or by calling (702) 414-9000 or (866) 641-7469.

Seether & Papa Roach with special guests Kyng & Islander at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Feb. 7

SEETHER & PAPA ROACH
SPECIAL GUESTS KYNG AND ISLANDER

SATURDAY, FEB. 7, 2015 AT 7 P.M.

Tickets on sale Friday, Nov. 7 at 10 a.m.

Rock bands Seether and Papa Roach with special guests Kyng and Islander will take the stage at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas on Saturday, Feb. 7, 2015 at 7 p.m.

 

Tickets start at $39.50 (plus applicable service fees) and are on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 7 at the Hard Rock Hotel Box Office, online at AXS.com or by calling 888-9-AXS-TIX.

 

Multi-platinum alternative rock trio Seether, comprised of Shaun Morgan (vocals, guitar), Dale Stewart (bass, backing vocals) and John Humphrey (drums), have developed into one of rock’s most fearsome units – playing with precision, grit and authority, yet still light on their feet. The band, originally from South Africa, has released eight albums including two certified platinum, two certified gold and a live concert DVD that has sold over 500,000 copies. Seether has quietly amassed 11 No. 1 singles and 17 top five multi-format hits.

 

GRAMMY award-nominated, multi-platinum hard rock group Papa Roach, made up of Jacoby Shaddix (vocals), Jerry Horton (guitars), Tobin Esperance (bass) and Tony Palermo (drums), have sold more than 20 million albums worldwide and are most known for their hit songs “Last Resort,” “She Loves Me Not,” “Scars” and “Getting Away with Murder.” After supporting 2012’s The Connection for nearly two years, the quartet collectively decided on a change of scenery for their eighth album, which resulted in its most infectious, invigorating and incendiary body of work to date, F.E.A.R. Papa Roach preserves the robust riffs and swaggering rhythms that marked the bands initial call-to-arms, while seamlessly infusing cinematic electronic flourishes, sweeping hooks and magnetic melodies. The New Year also marks an important milestone as the 15th anniversary of Papa Roach’s triple-platinum debut, Infest, which solidified them as hard rock leaders. Since then, the band has paved the way for countless other acts to find success at both radio and on stage.

The Joint will be showcasing the best talent in the world for years to come.”

“We’re exceptionally proud of what we have accomplished at The Joint in the past five years,” said Bobby Reynolds, vice president of booking for AEG Live Las Vegas. “Our goal has always been to offer top-notch entertainment while focusing on the experience of our fans and I think we’ve done that ten-fold.

the cult

The Cult *just added*                                                                                                                                                Saturday, April 19 at 8 p.m.

Tickets start at $39.50                                                                                                                                               On sale Friday, March 14 at 10 a.m.
British rockers, The Cult, are one of the most influential and controversial rock bands of the late 20th century, selling millions of albums, headlining arenas and stadiums around the world, infusing innovative possibilities into the worlds of music and art, and quickly ascending through the ranks of the indie music world to achieve global status. And now, for one night only, they’ll be taking over The Joint. The Cult will rock out The Joint on Saturday, April 19.

 

As early as its first American tour in 1984, The Cult became one of the handfuls of important bands in the U.S. post-modern and hard rock communities. The band was embraced by the lost children of The Doors and Velvet Underground, and a generation that was waking up to the influence of ‘60s and ‘70s rock icons like Led Zeppelin, The New York Dolls and David Bowie.

 

Formed in Brixton, London in 1983 as Death Cult, The Cult’s music transformed from punk rock to post-punk, psychedelia, heavy dance music, and transcendental hard rock. As one journalist noted, “Using a few simple riffs and images, The Cult creates an entire environment, one more exciting and stimulating than our own.”

 

The constant core of The Cult is vocalist/lyricist Ian Astbury and guitarist/composer Billy Duffy. Attitude incarnate, the chemistry between these two vastly different artists – equal-parts genuine affection and palpable tension – remains the source of their long-standing partnership. Duffy grounds Astbury’s esoteric side with a hard rock perspective, and there is no doubt that at all times, these two have each other’s backs.

 cheeh and chong

Cheech & Chong and WAR *just added*                                                                                                                   Friday, May 16 at 9 p.m.

Tickets start at $39.50                                                                                                                                               On sale Friday, March 14 at 10 a.m.
Comedians Cheech & Chong and rock band WAR recently announced their co-headlining, Up in Smoke Tour. “Hey, what happens when Cheech and Chong get together with WAR? Answer: The Greatest Stoner show of all time…combining Comedy, Latin, Funk, Horns, Rock & Soul.” And that’s what fans can expect to experience at The Joint on Friday, May 16.

Queen + Adam Lambert *just added*                                                                                                                       Saturday, July 5 – Sunday, July 6 at 8 p.m.

Tickets start at $49.50                                                                                                                                               On sale Friday, March 14 at 10 a.m.
Queen + Adam Lambert will reign over a highly anticipated North American summer tour starting in June. Brian May, Roger Taylor + Adam Lambert will come together for the first time at The Joint on Saturday, July 5 and Sunday, July 6.

 

Queen + Adam Lambert received glowing reviews for their performance together at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas last September, triggering a conversation between Adam, Roger and Brian to take the show on the road. Rolling Stone said, “Lambert astounded the audience on songs like ‘We Will Rock You’ and the closing ‘We Are The Champions’ and ‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love’. It was the most anticipated act of the night.” Billboard claimed, “…Queen effectively stole the show, with timeless songs that music fans of all genres can sing along to” and the Hollywood Reporter exclaimed, “Adam Lambert, Queen bring down the iHeart house. With the perfect mix of rock attitude mixed with style, theatricality, sex appeal and impressive vocal gymnastics, [Lambert] took the band’s music to new heights.”

 

The threesome first shared the stage during American Idol in May 2009 for a performance of “We Are The Champions”. They teamed up again in 2011 at the MTV European Music Awards in Belfast, Ireland for an electrifying eight-minute finale of “The Show Must Go On”, “We Will Rock You” and “We Are The Champions” and in the summer of 2012, Lambert performed a series of shows with Queen across Europe as well as dates in Russia, Ukraine and Poland. They also performed three sold-out gigs at London’s Hammersmith Apollo.

 

In a career spanning over 40 years Queen has amassed a staggering list of sales, awards, and hall of fame inductions that is second to none. Record sales in the hundreds of millions of units, including an unprecedented string of number one albums and top-charting singles that continue to put Queen in the top ten of all-time iTunes sales, seven Ivor Novello Awards, an MTV Global Icon Award, two songs enshrined in the Grammy Hall of Fame – “We Will Rock You” and “We Are the Champions” – which also remain the most played songs at sports events and arenas around the world, and, as if to qualify all of hyperbole, just last month Queen received the accolade of becoming the first artist ever to sell over six million copies of an album in the UK – beating out even the Beatles’ Sgt Pepper by close on a million copies – with their Greatest Hits album, which also achieved the record of over 1,422 weeks on the British album chart. The statistics show a staggering one in three British households now own a copy of the iconic act’s original Greatest Hits collection. Even with the tragic loss of their uniquely talented singer Freddie Mercury, Queen remain one of the most revered bands in rock and pop history, able to claim one of the most enduring song catalogues of all time. Just think: “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Another One Bites the Dust”, “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”, “Radio Ga Ga”, “Killer Queen”, “Fat Bottomed Girls”, “Bicycle Race”, songs that form the backdrop to the lives of generations of fans across all ages. With their sterling song craft, virtuoso musicality, and colossal spectacle of their live performances, Queen – Brian May, Freddie Mercury, Roger Taylor and John Deacon – captured hearts and conquered charts like no other band in history, a legacy that continues to live through the ongoing work and concert performances by May and Taylor. Their musical We Will Rock You, co-created with writer Ben Elton, is approaching its 12th year on stage in London’s West End and is currently touring North America.

 

Adam Lambert’s stunning performances on the eighth season of American Idol are still widely regarded as some of the most riveting moments in the show’s history. His debut album For Your Entertainment earned him a Grammy Award nomination for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance. His second album, Trespassing, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts. The subsequent tour took Lambert from Australia to South Africa, throughout Asia and Eastern Europe and culminated in a sold-out arena show in Helsinki, Finland. In 2013, Lambert appeared as a guest star on FOX’s hit TV series, “GLEE.” He is currently writing and recording for his third album, which will be released this year.

Tom Scholz’ band BOSTON will embark on a highly anticipated summer tour in June of this year following the successful release of their latest album, “Life, Love & Hope.” Always a huge crowd pleaser with their high-energy stage show, out-of-this-world sound, and remarkable musicianship and singing, BOSTON will feature the personnel and music from their highly acclaimed 2012 tour with some exciting additions. The band prides itself on performing a totally live show without the use of prerecorded music or technical enhancements, delivering the exceptional sound that is faithful to their studio recordings. Boston fans will be able to experience this amazing live show at The Joint on Saturday, July 26.

 

BOSTON burst onto the music scene with their eponymous best-selling debut album in 1976, and never looked back. With over 17 million copies sold, Boston generated hits such as “More Than a Feeling,” “Peace of Mind,” and “Smokin’,” rock staples that are still in heavy rotation today. Their second effort, Don’t Look Back was another chart-topper that confirmed their place in rock history, followed by Third Stage, which hit #1 on the charts, with the top single of 1986, “Amanda.” With over 31 million albums sold to date, their music has stood the test of time, as evidenced by live BOSTON audiences that span generations.

 

Last December, BOSTON released their newest studio album, Life, Love & Hope on Frontiers Records. More than a decade in the making, Life, Love & Hope features 11 tracks embodying the classic and beloved BOSTON sound, as well as the latest in the evolution of Tom Scholz’ musical artistry. Diverse yet cohesive, this long-awaited album has something for everyone and will fulfill the expectations of its long time fans, while exposing a new generation to one of rock ‘n’ roll’s great acts.

Jefferies is the creator and star of “Legit,” an original comedy series, which returns to FXX for a second season on Jan. 8. In “Legit,” Jefferies portrays a heightened version of himself as a comedian from Australia who realizes there’s more to life (and his career) than the rock and roll lifestyle of stand-up comedy. Prior to “Legit,” Jefferies appeared on numerous TV shows in England including Channel 4’s “The History of Offensive Humor,” BBC1’s “Heaven and Earth,” and ITV2’s “Comedy Cults.” U.S. audiences got their first taste of Jefferies when he appeared on HBO’s “Down and Dirty with Jim Norton,” which in turn lead to his critically acclaimed and international hit, one-hour HBO special, “I Swear to God.” He followed that up with a Showtime special titled “Alchoholocaust” and “Fully Functional” on the EPIX network.

 

This show is for guests who are 18 years of age or older. All concertgoers must provide a valid form of identification upon arrival.
