The Original MISFITS join PSYCHO LAS VEGAS 2019 Lineup 💀

 

The Original MISFITS join PSYCHO LAS VEGAS 2019 Lineup– added as Saturday Headliner to America’s Most Anticipated Summer Festival

Iconic band makes rare festival appearance this August at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, joining the likes of Opeth, Electric Wizard, Bad Religion, Clutch, Beach House and more

The Original MISFITS featuring original singer/songwriter Glenn Danzig and original bassist Jerry Only, ride again in Las Vegas! The legendary band returns to Sin City to headline PSYCHO LAS VEGAS 2019 on Saturday, Aug. 17 at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. This all-in move is no bluff, PSYCHO LAS VEGAS hosts one of the year’s best festival lineups with the addition of the Original MISFITS. The band will be making only their second-ever festival appearance since reuniting in 2016 for a handful of special engagements. PSYCHO LAS VEGAS is no stranger to the bold and daring – making waves across the festival scene since the announcement of its move to Mandalay Bay for the seventh edition of the annual rock n’ roll pilgrimage. This year’s PSYCHO LAS VEGAS will also play host to Opeth’s only 2019 U.S. performance, the return of fan favorites Electric Wizard and High on Fire, and more than 70 other artists from around the world gracing four stages at the majestic resort August 16-18.

From the time of their first gig in 1977, the MISFITS and their iconic imagery went on to become one of the most crucially influential, genre-defying bands to ever emerge from North America. The MISFITS’ significance extends well beyond the narrowed path of punk rock, metal and hardcore. Although not cognizant of how significant they would become, what the Original MISFITS achieved in their initial seven-year window deconstructed and redefined rock music.

The MISFITS with Danzig’s anthemic songs and unmistakable voice, Only’s ferocious bass sound and the Original MISFITS melody-induced choruses and authentically bruising musicianship, cemented their importance with all ensuing generations. Now, legions of diehard fans from around the world will have the opportunity to hear the original band that forges a level of intensity unprecedented in the new millennium.

More than 70 bands will grace four stages at Mandalay Bay over the three-day festival, including the newly renovated Mandalay Bay Events Center; the iconic House of Blues Las Vegas; Mandalay Bay Beach, featuring a wave pool and lazy river; and Rhythm & Riffs, a Vegas-style lounge in the middle of the casino floor. While VIP High Roller passes quickly sold out, three-day General Admission tickets are available for $249 (excluding tax and fees) in addition to single-day tickets for $109 plus fees per day. Tickets can be purchased at VivaPsycho.com and AXS.com. Discount room rates at Mandalay Bay and various MGM Resorts hotels are available through this link.

Kicking off the three-day PSYCHO LAS VEGAS festival is Psycho Swim, an all-day music filled pool party at DAYLIGHT Beach Club at Mandalay Bay scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 15. Tickets are included in the VIP High Roller package, otherwise are separate from the three-day festival and now on sale for $35 (excluding tax and fees) for those 21 years of age and older.

Rick Moonen Serves as Guest Chef at the USA Pavilion at Expo Milano 2015

RICK MOONEN SERVES AS GUEST CHEF AT THE USA PAVILION AT EXPO MILANO 2015

Rick Moonen USA Pavilion at Expo Milano 2015

Last week, Chef Rick Moonen, an advocate for sustainable fishing and seafood, was invited as a guest chef to the esteemed USA Pavilion at Expo Milano 2015, the first time that the popular world’s fair has been food-themed, taking place in Milan now through October. Moonen was one of 50 guest chefs selected by the James Beard Foundation to represent the USA’s “Culinary Dream Team.” This remarkable group of chefs are all recognized by the James Beard Foundation, the International Culinary Center,  and are also members of the American Chef Corps, an initiative launched by the U.S. Department of State to elevate the role of culinary engagement in America’s formal and public diplomacy efforts.

 

To kick off the week, Moonen celebrated World’s Ocean Day (June 8) with Sheila Bowman of Monterey Bay Aquarium and its Seafood Watch program. During a discussion panel and cooking demo event, the duo taught guests how to be stewards of our oceans, and discussed aqua culture and the challenges they face. They also showed participants how to use the Seafood Watch program, so they can make responsible eating decisions to assure an abundant future for our oceans. Following the discussion, Moonen also demonstrated a tea-smoked Alaskan sockeye salmon with cucumbers and horseradish cream for the expo’s own official cookery show, “The Cooking Show – The World on a Plate.”

 

On Tuesday, June 9 and Wednesday, June 10, Moonen hosted dinner for over 50 guests each night in honor of the expo’s theme, “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life.” The dinners were housed at James Beard American Restaurant in the Penthouse Suite inside the Seven Stars Galleria Hotel, a location with superb views of the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II and Piazza della Scala. Operating much in the same manner as the James Beard House in New York City, the highly anticipated restaurant opened on May 8 and serves as a special platform for America’s culinary talent during the expo. For Moonen’s dinners, the celebrated chef showed guests how to shuck oysters and prepared a selection of hors d’oeuvres, as well as a four-course menu paired with wine. As Moonen conversed with guests he said, “Connect with our environment, put away our toys, enjoy a good meal, have food for generations to come…the core of what I do.” Highlights from the meal included dishes that showcase Moonen’s passion for sustainable seafood found at Rick Moonen’s rm seafood at The Shoppes at Mandalay Place, such as the brandade cake on fennel with a truffle vinaigrette, New England style cobia chowder, and tea- smoked True North Salmon with cucumbers and horseradish cream, to name a few.

Michael Jackson ONE Sunday Matinees Begin June 29

michael jackson one

Cirque du Soleil and the Estate of Michael Jackson present

MICHAEL JACKSON ONE
Story and directed by Jamie King

EXCLUSIVELY AT MANDALAY BAY IN LAS VEGAS

 

Cirque du Soleil and the Estate of Michael Jackson present Michael Jackson ONE in Las Vegas, a new creation taking residency exclusively at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. Directed by Jamie King, this entirely new show is the second creative project to be developed between Cirque du Soleil and The Estate of Michael Jackson after the top grossing Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour, currently playing arenas in North America as it travels the world.

 

The show
Michael Jackson ONE is a sonic, tonic fusion of acrobatics, dance and visuals that takes the audience on an immersive journey through the music and spirit of Michael Jackson.

 

Driven by Michael’s powerful, multi-layered music – heard like never before in a riveting, state-of-the-art surround-sound environment – ONE takes the audience through a series of seamless visual and musical tableaux, at the heart of a world that is in turn majestic, playful, magical and heart-warming.

 

In Michael Jackson ONE, Michael’s artistry and spirit are expressed through the vibrant energy of the cast of 63 dancers and performers, underscored by aerial performance, driving acrobatics, and vivid choreographies that use the urban/hip hop idiom as a springboard for exploration.

 

ONE is a heartfelt tribute to the work, innovative spirit, and legacy of Michael Jackson – the King of Pop, the genius, the visionary, the One.

 

The name
Michael Jackson believed that all people are unique and equal, regardless of race or culture. His message was one of unity, harmony and hope for a better world. At once evocative and enigmatic, the name Michael Jackson ONE also presents a paradox: Michael was a multifaceted artist who strove to fuse together various musical styles and art forms.  It is a fitting title for a unifying journey into the world of the King of Pop, the genius, the visionary, the One.

 

Along with Jamie Kingwho started his career as a dancer on Michael’s Dangerous World Tour and also directed the arena touring show Michael Jackson The ImmortalWorld Tourby Cirque du Soleil Michael Jackson ONEwill bring together the creative minds behind the Michael Jackson Estate, John Branca and John McClain, and the diverse talents of the following creators:

LIGHT Nightclub Announces Additional Members of Its Exclusive DJ Line Up

Axwell, Alesso, Nicky Romero, Thomas Gold, A-Trak, Otto Knows, Mat Zo, Clockwork, Carl Kennedy, Bassjackers and More To Join the List of Powerhouse Talent at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas

 

Recently LIGHT Vegas — the first-ever nightclub turned on by the creative minds behind Cirque du Soleil — announced four of the most hotly-tipped artists on the scene today, Skrillex, Sebastian Ingrosso, Zedd and Baauer , as the first members of its exclusive DJ line-up.  Now there is more.

LIGHT – located at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas – is now pleased to announce the remaining DJ partnerships with Axwell, Alesso, Nicky Romero, Thomas Gold, A-Trak, Mat Zo, Otto Knows as well as Alvin Risk, Andy Caldwell, Bassjackers, Carl Kennedy, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Hook N Sling, Sebastien Drums, Stafford Brothers and Steve Powers.

This marks Swedish House Mafia’s Axwell’s first EVER Vegas residency.  At LIGHT, he will showcase the musical style that has made him a global electronic music sensation as evident via his  hits including “Nothing But Love”, “Heart is King,” remixes like the Grammy-nominated “In My Mind” and “Hometown Glory” and his #3 Billboard Top 100 smash with Swedish House Mafia “Don’t You Worry Child.”

“When I was asked to do this, I said yes immediately,” Axwell reveals. “It felt right that the show I would choose to do in Vegas would be an experiment between our music coming together with the experience of Cirque du Soleil and Moment Factory who I have been fans of for a long time.  I’m excited to be in this from the beginning and be part of how it will grow.”

Also joining the powerhouse team at LIGHT is Alesso, one of the fastest rising stars in the electronic scene helmed with a slew of Beatport #’s including huge hits such as “Calling” with Sebastian Ingrosso and Ryan Tedder as well as his latest piano anthem “Years” ft. Matthew Koma.

“I met Moment Factory and Cirque Du Soleil in London and I was blown away with what they created, even so much I felt I wanted to work with them and take this into my live show performance visuals across the year…this is really next level!” says Alesso.

For Nicky Romero–the highest New Entry in DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJ poll (No.17) and creator of dance floor juggernauts such as “Toulouse”, “Generation 303” and of course “Nicktim”, of which the vocal version named “I Could Be The One” has just landed a number one chart position in the UK – LIGHT is where he lands his Protocol imprint a home in Las Vegas and the whole Protocol Team is thrilled about landing this residency on a creative, musical and production level and look forward to a great show and an awesome overall event.

“We have seen the LIGHT,” says Nicky. “Protocol, my own platform, is hosted by Mandalay Bay this year. We are looking forward to collaborating with them on this huge project and I am over the moon that my event has found a home here. I am really looking forward to party all night with the awesome crowd in Vegas. As it looks now the show will be mind-blowing in all aspects from production to visuals and of course music. So come and check it out people.  Protocol is coming at you this year!”

Germany’s Thomas Gold is an artist that transcends both the underground & commercial worlds. Just as comfortable in the upper echelons of the Beatport charts, he was the first artist to be signed to Axwell’s Axtone Management company.”I’m super happy to announce my residency at LIGHT,” says Gold. “From all what I’ve heard this is going to be next level and I can´t wait to be part of this whole new experience”

Combining rap music with electronic sounds, Canadian electro-house sensation A-Trak will bring a unique blend to LIGHT nightclub. Known for Duck Sauce – a collaboration with Armand Van Helden – the duo produced hits including “aNYway” and “Barbra Streisand.”  He’s also a critically acclaimed scratch DJ and has been dazzling dance audiences worldwide with releases on his Fool’s Gold label.

“In my opinion, the DJs we have selected are the best in the world. All of them will work on this vision with us for one reason – to give the best night out we all possibly can,” Music and Marketing Director Amy Thomson explains.  “The GA experience in this venue is second to none and that was important to everyone involved. The DJs, Cirque du Soleil and Moment Factory will be pushing each other¹s boundaries in an electric atmosphere where anything can happen and most importantly having a LOT of fun doing it.
