THOMAS & MACK CENTER CELEBRATES 30TH ANNIVERSARY

Thomas & Mack Center
THOMAS & MACK CENTER CELEBRATES
30th ANNIVERSARY

 

Today, the Thomas & Mack Center officially celebrates 30 years of award-winning entertainment, guest service and renowned fan experience in Las Vegas as it begins a yearlong celebration of its 30th Anniversary.

“We are excited to share this great Thomas & Mack Center milestone with the Las Vegas community,” said Mike Newcomb, Executive Director of the Thomas & Mack Center. “By catering to both locals and out of town visitor’s, we have provided the city with unprecedented economic impact over our 30 years of hosting special events.”

Thomas & Mack Center kicked off the celebration November 1st, announcing local Las Vegan Ron Mullins as “The Big Ticket Giveaway” winner. Mullins was awarded two tickets to every ticketed event at the Thomas & Mack Center from November 1, 2013 – October 31, 2014. More than 30 confirmed ticketed events were included in “The Big Ticket Giveaway.”

The Thomas & Mack Center continually ranks highly as one of the top grossing venues in the country; ranking #1 as the top grossing University venue for 15,001-30,000 capacity (Jan. 1, 2012 – Dec. 31, 2012). Additionally, Thomas & Mack Center ranked #2 for highest grossing Las Vegas venues (Sept. 1, 2012 – August 31, 2013), as reported by leading event industry publication Venues Today.

The continual success of the venue is attributed to both past employees and the current 82 full time and 1,200 part time employees. Many of these employees have been a part of the Thomas & Mack Center team for over 20 years. The arena is widely recognized for its many “best practices” throughout the sports and entertainment industry.

“Being such a viable venue for 30 years is a testament to all the very talented people who have dedicated their professional lives to the Thomas & Mack Center,” said Newcomb.

In 1983 the Thomas & Mack Center was designed and expanded to become Las Vegas’ first multipurpose arena to bring in revenue to the city. Once built, the facility had two major goals to reach: 100 event days per year and one million guests. Today, the Thomas & Mack Center hosts more than 250 diverse and distinct events annually, with over 22 million guests having passed through its doors. The venue contributes significantly to the overall economic impact of Southern Nevada by providing jobs, generating sales tax, and providing a facility for tourists and locals alike.

“Throughout our 30 years the Thomas & Mack Center has established itself as one of the premier venues in the country. We have always prided ourselves on being a leader in the venue business and not being afraid to step outside the box,” said Newcomb. “Creating our own ticketing company, UNLVtickets, was a big step that not many venues have taken and it has been a great revenue generator for our venue. Operating our own food and beverage also gives us the control and flexibility to generate revenue in concessions and catering.”

On Nov. 21, 1983, the Thomas & Mack Center opened its doors to the public for its very first event when the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels Men’s Basketball team took on Victoria, Canada for the first game on their new home court. The Gala Grand Opening was held on December 16, 1983 and featured Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and Diana Ross. Over the past 30 years, the Thomas & Mack Center has hosted some of the most exciting live events in the world such as the National Finals Rodeo, Championship Boxing, PBR World Finals, Disney On Ice, NBA Summer League, USA Basketball, WWE, Mountain West Basketball Tournament, the 2007 NBA All-Star Game, Ringling Bros. & Barnum Bailey Circus, and numerous others. Additionally some of the biggest superstars and super groups have performed at the facility, including Elton John, U2, Mariah Carey, Dixie Chicks, Eric Clapton, Celine Dion, N’SYNC, Garth Brooks, Bruce Springsteen, Rod Stewart, Aerosmith, Phish, Jay-Z, Eminem, and Green Day to name a few.

“The wide array of events we get to be involved with is key to our success and keeps the team motivated. We have had many great highlights but a couple really come to mind,” said Newcomb. “In 2007 we were the first non NBA venue to host the NBA All Star Game, and we were the first US venue to host the PRIDE Fighting Championship group from Japan and held two great events with them in 2006 and 2007.”

The Thomas & Mack Center underwent renovations in 1992 and 2000 with a few recent updates last year. A new rigging grid was put in which increased surface area for the attachment of rigging points adding flexibility for different types of shows and events that Thomas & Mack Center hosts. Additionally, the venue has upgraded its control room to full HD production. This system is primarily for in-house video scoreboard presentations as well as projects that are produced for live and on-demand streaming.

Recently the Nevada state legislature approved $47 million in renovations and upgrades to the arena scheduled to begin in Fall of 2014. It will be a 24 month project working around the venues event schedule. Almost half of the renovation dollars will go to mechanical upgrades to bring the facility up to code and replace the 30-year-old infrastructure. Other updates and additions include ADA improvements, concourse restroom improvements, fire and life safety improvements, replacement of retractable seating, new seats in the plaza, concourse circulation improvements, concourse refurbishment, new escalators at the main entrance, and additional escalators at other entrances.

“We’re continuing to evolve and develop new offerings for our content partners that allow them to create new revenues and build new touch points with consumers,” said Newcomb. “We’ve always focused on improving. In a city like Las Vegas, you’ve got to keep getting better. The team members who came before us set the groundwork, and it’s our responsibility to ensure that the Thomas & Mack Center is a success going forward for another 30 years.”

In addition, downtown hotel-casinos offer fabulous deals on room rates, gambling and food and drink specials.”

Theory of a Deadman
The platinum-selling Vancouver quartet, Theory of a Deadman, builds arena-ready hooks around hard rocking stories of good times, bad times and everything in between. “Lowlife,” is a raucous anthem celebrating simple pleasures. Meanwhile, “The Bitch Came Back” gives a hilarious send-off to a bad ex with roaring guitars and flourishes of horns. “Hurricane” stirs up a storm of emotions over an orchestral hum of guitars and massive chorus. Then there’s “Head Above Water,” which delivers an uplifting, contemplative message encased in mid-tempo rhythms.

The band solidified their place at the top of modern hard rock by exceeding Platinum sales with their breakthrough album Scars & Souvenirs and with #1 Mainstream Rock Radio hit “Bad Girlfriend.” At the same time, other singles, “So Happy” and “By The Way,” became crowd favorites on tours with notable bands from Mötley Crüe and Godsmack to Daughtry and label mates Stone Sour.

Fuel
Fuel burst onto the scene with their 1998 full-length debut album Sunburn, featuring the massive hit “Shimmer.” Since then the band has sold over 3.5 million albums in the U.S. and recorded additional top hits including “Innocent,” “Hemorrhage (In My Hands),” and “Falls on Me.” Fuel has performed sold out tours all over the world, headlining venues and opening for bands including Aerosmith, Kid Rock, Creed and 3 Doors Down.

Lit
Fullerton, Calif. rock band Lit is comprised of brothers A. Jay and Jeremy Popoff, and lifelong friends, Kevin Baldes and Allen Shellenberger. Their second album A Place in the Sunspawned three hit singles: “Miserable,” which went to #3 on the Modern Rock Tracks, and whose video featured the flaxen voluptitude of Pamela Anderson; “Zip-Lock,” and “My Own Worst Enemy” (which held the number one position on the Billboard Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart for three months, and received a Billboard Music Award for the biggest modern rock song of 1999). They rocked Woodstock 1999 and supported the Offspring, No Doubt and Garbage, spanning the globe and clocking in close to 500 shows between 1999 and 2000. And riding on its heels, A Place In The Sun’s 2001 follow-up Atomic boasted yet another Top Ten single for the band, “Lipstick And Bruises,” and a support tour with Kid Rock.

Hinder
Hinder debuted on the rock scene in 2005 with their first album Extreme Behavior, which sold over three-million copies in the U.S. and featured the breakthrough single “Lips of an Angel” which hit #1 on the Billboard Pop Chart. The album also featured popular hits “Better Than Me” and “Get Stoned.” The follow-up in 2008, Take it to the Limit, surpassed Gold status after debuting at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 with over 80,000 copies sold first week. Meanwhile, their third effort, American Nightmare, was released in 2010. Along the way, the band has shared the stage on national tours with everyone Mötley Crüe and Nickelback to Papa Roach and Saving Abel. After nearly a decade, Hinder is stronger than ever, releasing their fourth full-length album for Republic Records, Welcome to the Freakshow.

Everclear
Founded in Portland, Ore. in 1992, Everclear independently released their debut album World of Noise. The band’s relentless touring regimen and D.I.Y. promotional tactics helped set to set the stage for the platinum-level breakthrough of 1995’s Sparkle and Fade, which spawned the hits “Santa Monica” and “Heroin Girl.” The band’s ascendancy continued with 1997’s So Much for the Afterglow, which produced the radio hits “Everything to Everyone,” “I Will Buy You A New Life,” and “Father of Mine.” In 2012 Everclear released their newest album “Invisible Stars” featuring new songs that embody the same qualities of punch, sturdy songcraft and edgy introspection that have long endeared Everclear to its large and loyal worldwide fan base.

Live
Live burst onto the burgeoning alternative scene in 1991, but it was their sophomore album Throwing Copper that solidified their status as bonafide superstars. The album featured hit songs “Lightning Crashes,” “All Over You,” and “I Alone.” The album reached #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and surpassed sales of 10 million in merely two years. Rolling Stone and MTV both dubbed the album “One of the 25 Greatest Rock Albums of All-Time”, while tastemakers from Spin to The New York Times lauded it with equal praise. Upon release, its 1997 follow-up Secret Samadhi immediately shot to #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and eventually went six-times platinum. However, on The Distance to Here in 1999, Live turned into an international powerhouse and jumped from arenas into stadiums all over the globe driven by the smash “The Dolphin’s Cry”. V and Birds of Pray followed, continuing to expand their legacy and satiate the rabid and faithful fan base that they had amassed over nearly two decades. Live’s music remains a pillar of the nineties both musically and culturally. The band infused heartfelt melodies with raw energy for an inimitable style that stood out from the early nineties pack.

Filter
Shoving a fist in the face of tradition has been Filter’s modus operandi since the release of their self-produced debut album, Short Bus. The album’s rough-around-the-edges production brought the group’s first hit single “Hey Man, Nice Shot” which peaked at #10 on Billboards Modern Rock Tracks. Their second album, Title of Record, featured hit song “Take a Picture” which has been featured in numerous motion pictures including The Girl Next Door, Saving Grace, Little Nicky and Pay it Forward. Filter’s sixth album, The Sun Comes Out will be released on June 4, 2013.

Sponge
Sponge has proven to be one of the Motor City’s heaviest hitters after gaining international notoriety with their debut album Rotting Piñata. Emerging from Detroit with hits like “Plowed” and “Molly (16 Candles)” Sponge received massive airplay on radio stations from coast to coast and were in heavy rotation on MTV. Both “Plowed” and “Molly” hit #5 onBillboard’s Modern Rock Charts, catapulting “Rotting Piñata” to Gold, and ultimately Platinum status. Sponge’s follow up CD, the critically lauded “Wax Ecstatic” (Columbia) scored additional top ten Billboard hits including “Wax Ecstatic” and “Have You Seen Mary?” The band’s music was also featured in popular movies The Craft, Chasing Amy, Mall Ratsand Empire Records. Having shared stages the world over with Guns N’ Roses, Nickelback, Iggy Pop, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Kiss, to name just a few, Sponge continues to be one of rock’s most sought after live acts. Front man Vinnie Dombroski captivates audiences with his powerful voice, heart-on-his-sleeve lyrics and high-octane stage presence. In May of 2013 Sponge will release a highly anticipated new album Stop the Bleeding.

Puddle of Mudd
Puddle of Mudd is a Kansas City, Missouri based post-grunge rock band that has been capturing audiences for more than a decade. Their debut studio album Come Clean, released in 2001 gave them the breakthrough to the mainstream music scene with hit singles like “She Hates Me,” “Blurry” and “Drift and Die” and “Blurry,” a power rock ballad which peaked at #1 on both Billboard’s Hot Modern Rock Tracks and Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks. Since then the band has achieved platinum-plus sales, sold out crowds and released more than a dozen radio hits.
