Country Superstar Duo Big & Rich To Headline RIAA/Musicians On Call Inaugural Benefit

COUNTRY SUPERSTAR DUO BIG & RICH TO HEADLINE RIAA/MUSICIANS ON CALL INAUGURAL BENEFIT

Country music superstar act Big & Rich will be the headlining entertainment at the Recording Industry Association of America’s (RIAA) second-ever inauguration charity event benefiting Musicians On Call. The hit duo will perform their set at the 9:30 Club the evening of the presidential inauguration on Friday, January 20, 2017.

Comprised of Big Kenny and “Celebrity Apprentice” winner John Rich, Big & Rich have exerted a definitive gravitational pull to the direction modern country music has taken. Known as “America’s Technicolor cowboys,” Big & Rich have made a career of being relatable and musically relevant since exploding into the public consciousness in 2003. Their 2004 debut studio album Horse of a Different Color shot to RIAA triple-Platinum and included smash hit “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy),” while their latest album Gravity scored three back-to-back-to-back Top Ten country hits with “Look at You,” “Run Away With You,” and “Lovin’ Lately” featuring Tim McGraw. Meanwhile, their hit “Comin’ to Your City” is nearing a decade as the theme song for ESPN’s College GameDay.

“Musicians On Call brings the healing power of music to the bedsides of patients in healthcare facilities nationwide,” said Pete Griffin, President of Musicians On Call. “We are so grateful for RIAA’s long term support of our mission and to be the charitable beneficiary of Big & Rich’s performance in Washington, DC.”

Deeply insightful rock photography: Live Design International and A.C.T Lighting present, ‘In the Eye of the Rock‘n’Roll Hurricane,’ which travels through 45 years of rock history

 NP_PlantDove_v2 (1)

American photographer Neal Preston is one of the greats of international music photography. From Bruce Springsteen to Led Zeppelin, from Mick Jagger to Queen, his subjects read like a Who’s Who of music icons. “In the Eye of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hurricane,” one of the largest rock’n’roll photography exhibitions ever in the US, is scheduled to run Friday October 23, 2015 through Sunday October 25, 2015.  Visitors to the LDI Conference and Tradeshow as well as the general public will have a chance to visit the exhibition.

 

This world-touring exhibition is provided by the Lightpower Collection. Lightpower is the leading distributor of stage and studio lighting equipment in Europe, established in 1978. The exhibition  offers a unique insight into 45 years of rock history, showcasing powerful, intimate images that capture musicians in their creative and personal environments and are authentic testimonies of life, with its highs and lows, on and behind the stage. The multi-media exhibition features over 70 works from this iconic artist. Although many of the photographs that will be showcased at LDI have appeared previously in international magazines and books, in countless television programs and album artwork, the exhibition also includes works that have never previously been seen in the States.

 

The exhibition is presented by A.C.T Lighting, the leading North American importer and distributor of entertainment lighting technology products, and LDI International, the leading global tradeshow and conference for live design professionals.

 

“Our industry is built around supporting and spotlighting the talent of such acts as AC/DC, Queen, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin and the full spectrum of bands throughout the 20th and 21st centuries,” explains David Johnson, Managing Director of Live Design and LDI. “This exhibit gives us an opportunity to see the people behind the legendary shows, to get a glimpse of true greatness up close and personal.”

 

The exhibition, where Neal Preston will be in attendance, also includes insights from the artist himself into his creative work. “We have created something much greater than just a collection of fine-art music photography prints. This is a living, breathing exhibition on a grand scale where the pictures seems to come alive, and capture the same excitement and passion that I felt – and still feel – while photographing the most legendary, iconic artists in rock ‘n’ roll history,” says Neal Preston.

 

“Our goal is for the viewer to have a visceral experience, and through the photographs be able to actually feel the power and energy of being on stage performing for tens of thousands of people, and then feel what it’s like backstage, touring at a grueling pace, and more,” he explains. “The Lightpower Collection has put together a truly unique photography exhibition that captures the magic of those incredible times – and it has made me realize how fortunate I have been to have been given the opportunity to document all of this from the inside out.”

 

The exhibition is also emphasizes the organizers’ commitment to the global event industry. All proceeds generated by the sale of fine art prints and other ancillary merchandise will be included in a donation to the Behind the Scenes charity, which provides financial support to entertainment technology industry professionals when they are ill or injured or to their surviving family members. Behind the Scenes brings help and hope in times of great need.

 

Ben Saltzman, President and CEO of A.C.T Lighting, concludes, “It’s an honor to collaborate with our closest partners to present such an iconic representation of the history of rock ‘n’ roll, and we’re especially proud to do so during our industry’s premier showcase. This exhibition of Neal Preston’s work exemplifies the highest level of passion, artistry and achievement.”

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.”
