X107.5 Holiday Havoc at The Joint in Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Featuring Thirty Seconds to Mars with Special Guests Panic! at the Disco, Pepper and Parade of Lights, Nov. 30






Tickets on-sale Friday at 10am!

 X107.5 is bringing their annual holiday blow out to The Joint again this year when Holiday Havoc returns on Saturday, November 30. This year’s line-up features Thirty Seconds to Mars with special guests Pepper and Parade of Lights. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10am.

THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS – comprising Jared Leto, Shannon Leto and Tomo Milicevic – has sold over 5 million albums worldwide and the band’s videos have more than 300 million views on YouTube. The group has received numerous awards, including a dozen MTV awards worldwide, a Billboard Music award and honors from NME, Kerrang! and Fuse.

In partnership with NASA, THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS launched the first single from the new album, LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS, into space. Literally. Sending the very first copy to the International Space Station, it got its ground breaking premiere from the astronauts in orbit 230 miles above Earth. LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS is the band’s fourth studio record. It follows This Is War, which was hailed as “an artistic triumph” by Alternative Press, “a shimmering epic” by MTV.com, and contained the No. 1 Modern Rock radio hits “This Is War” and “Kings and Queens.” During its two-year tour in support of This Is War, the band sold out arenas around the globe, playing over 311 shows in nearly 60 countries on six continents to three million people – and breaking the Guinness World Record® for the longest ever concert tour by a rock band.

Prior to 2009’s This Is War, THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS released its second album, A Beautiful Lie in 2005. The record produced two Top 5 Modern Rock singles in “From Yesterday” and “The Kill”, with the latter setting a record for the longest-running hit in the history of Modern Rock radio when it remained on the national airplay chart for more than 50 weeks following its number 3 peak in 2006.

Las Vegas’s very own rockers, Panic! at the Disco, formed in Summerlin in 2004. Today the band is Brendon Urie (lead vocals, guitar and piano), Spencer Smith (drums) and Dallon Weekes (bass). The band is known for its top ten single “I Write Sins Not Tragedies,” from the double-platinum album “A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out”. On October 8, the band released its fourth studio album “Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!” which includes the July 15th released single “Miss Jackson.”

Reggae rock band, Pepper, consist of Kaleo Wassman (Vocals/Guitar), Bret Bollinger (Vocals/Bass) and Yesod Williams (Drums). The trio, who formed in 1997 in Hawaii, recently released their sixth album, a self-titled Pepper. The album broadens Pepper’s style, veering into new sonic territory while still retaining all the fun elements that make the band so beloved by their fans. The ever-present sense of life surges through the tracks, bolstering the sense of optimism throughout. The party anthems, the beach hang melodies, and the boisterous rhythms are all there, each song carefully crafted to best express these sunny moments by the ocean.

Pepper’s universal appeal has led to their music being placed in various movies and TV shows, including Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Good Luck Chuck, as well as several video game soundtracks.

Parade of Lights are an alt-electro band based in Los Angeles. Comprised of Ryan Daly, Anthony Improgo, Michelle Ashley and Randy Schulte, the group combines equal parts rock, electro, and shoegaze to create a unique blend of 80’s influenced pop drawing on inspiration from artists like U2, Depeche Mode, M83, and even Madonna.

Tickets, starting at $39.50 (plus applicable service fees), go on sale Friday at 10am at the Hard Rock Hotel Box Office, all Ticketmaster locations, online at Ticketmaster.com or charge-by-phone at 800.745.3000.

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Announces Panic! at the Disco on 10/11 and Local Music Showcase on 8/15 at the Boulevard Pool; Tix on Sale 7/19

Panic! At The Disco On Oct. 11 and Local Music Showcase on
Aug. 15 At The Boulevard Pool
Tickets on sale Friday, July 19 at 10 a.m.

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas adds two concerts to the dynamic musical lineup at the Boulevard Pool, including Panic! At The Disco on Friday, Oct. 11 at 9 p.m. and a local artist showcase on Thursday, Aug. 15.

Tickets will go on sale Friday, July 19 at 10 a.m. PST and are available online at www.cosmopolitanlasvegas.com or through Ticketmaster at 800.745.3000. General admission tickets are $26 for Panic!

All shows are open to all-ages, and guests must be 21+ to reserve a cabana.

Comprised of Spencer Smith (drums), Brendon Urie (guitar/vocals) and Dallon Weekes (bass), Panic! At The Disco’s roots coming of age in Las Vegas loom large on the band’s fourth album Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die!. From its glittery synth-based, drum-heavy sound, to its playful, celebratory subject matter, to the Rat Pack-inspired imagery on the cover, to the title itself (a line from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas author Hunter S. Thompson), the album finds the band, for the first time in its nearly 10-year career, owning up to loving their hometown. Urie promises their upcoming tour will be as big a spectacle as the tours they’ve launched for their previous albums, 2005’s double-platinum A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out, 2008’s Pretty. Odd. (which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Album chart), and Vices & Virtues, which debuted at No. 7 and racked up critical accolades.

The local showcase will be held as part of Boulevard Pool’s Set Your Life to Music Series, and will feature performances by GoldBoot, The McManus Project and The Dirty Hooks.  As the sun sets over The Strip each Thursday night, the Boulevard Pool deck comes to life with the energy of Las Vegas during the Set Your Life to Music series. From the aroma of the outdoor grills to the sounds of hand-crafted cocktails being stirred, guests can revel in the spirit of music at the intimate outdoor venue. Doors open at 7 p.m. with celebrated DJ Mike Attack spinning before the bands take the stage at 8 p.m.

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas features artists at the forefront of the touring world and emerging artists that will inspire the next musical movements coupled with spectacularly-designed, technology-driven venues. The excitement of live-music and sports action spills onto the casino floor from Book & Stage, an upscale sports and entertainment lounge, while live DJs fill the rhythmic and vibrant hot-spot BOND with the best in house-music. Finally, The Chandelier, a dramatic inhabitable three-story architectural wonder, created by 2 million luminous crystals, houses three unique bar experiences: high-energy hot spot, sophisticated cocktail retreat and inviting lounge. Perched high above the Las Vegas Strip, the Boulevard Pool is a multilevel pool experience by day and an intimate outdoor concert venue with unobstructed sightlines of both the stage and The Strip by night.
