 On Thursday, July 28, the Estate of Michael Jackson teamed up with Michael Jackson ONE by Cirque du Soleil and Mandalay Bay to pay tribute to the King of Pop as they unveiled his iconic HIStory Statue. Featured on the cover of his world-famous album HIStory: Past, Present and Future Book 1, which became the best selling multiple disc album worldwide, the HIStory Statue is the third piece of memorabilia to be loaned by the Estate for display on the Mandalay Bay property.

 

The highly anticipated unveiling ceremony took place in the Main Lobby of Mandalay Bay, where fans had the opportunity to witness the live reveal of this historic sculpture. To welcome the piece, members from the cast of Michael Jackson ONE delivered a never-before-seen performance created especially for this event, dazzling the audience as they performed to “SCREAM,” the first single from the HIStory album. Following the performance, fans were able to meet and take photos with those cast members.

“There’s a reason why Michael Jackson’s spirit still lives on,” said Jerry Nadal, Senior Vice President, Resident Shows Division at Cirque du Soleil. “It’s the passion and love behind every song he created. It’s the soundtrack he delivered to an entire generation and beyond. We certainly see this every night at Michael Jackson ONE as thousands of Michael Jackson, Cirque and music and dance fans of all ages and backgrounds collide to experience their favorite Michael Jackson songs in a new and innovative way. Now, this incredible statue stands with us as a testament to his legacy.”

 

On loan from the Estate of Michael Jackson, the HIStory Statue joins two other pieces at Mandalay Bay: Jackson’s red and gold military-style jacket from his appearance at the 1984 American Music Awards and a pair of his iconic black loafers and crystal-encrusted white socks. An additional historical Jackson item will be revealed on Saturday, Aug. 27, kicking off a three-day birthday celebration for the King of Pop inside the ONE Theater.

 

“Michael Jackson was and always will be an icon of our time,” said Darren Davis, Vice President of Entertainment at Mandalay Bay. “We are so thankful that the Estate has been gracious enough to share this statue and all of the other precious Michael Jackson memorabilia with our property. Those who visit Mandalay Bay will have the opportunity to see these amazing pieces, and they are truly extraordinary.”

15 REASONS TO EXPERIENCE HARD ROCK HOTEL & CASINO DURING 
RASCAL FLATTS VEGAS RIOT! RESIDENCY, FEBRUARY 25-MARCH 14

The band celebrates its 15th anniversary along with 15 No. 1 singles in 2015

 rascal flatts

This month, Rascal Flatts will make history as the first country group to take up a residency in Las Vegas. The band will perform nine shows, deemed Rascal Flatts Vegas Riot!, at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino from Wednesday, February 25 to Saturday, March 14. As the trio celebrates its 15-year anniversary with 15 No. 1 singles, here are 15 reasons (in no particular order) why locals and visitors alike should stay on property and see a Rascal Flatts show:

  1. Because… it’s Rascal Flatts.
    • Rascal Flatts remains the most-awarded country music group of the past decade with eight consecutive studio albums debuting at No. 1. Since its musical debut in 2000, the group has sold more than 22.8 million albums, 29 million digital downloads and has earned more than 40 trophies from the American Country Awards, Academy of Country Music Awards, American Music Awards, Country Music Association Awards, People’s Choice Awards and more. In 2012, the band reached a new milestone with more than 7 million concert tickets sold.
  2. First country band to have a residency in Las Vegas.
    • Rascal Flatts is not only the first country band to take up a residency at The Joint, but it is the first country band to take up a residency in Las Vegas.
  3. Opening with Craig Wayne Boyd.
    • Kicking off the show each night will be season seven winner of NBC’s “The Voice” Craig Wayne Boyd. The future country superstar already has a No.1 single, “My Baby’s Got a Smile on Her Face,” under his belt just two months after his big win.
  4. Country nightlife.
    • Throughout the Rascal Flatts Vegas Riot! residency, Dee Jay Silver will perform a mix of Top 40 hits with light infusions of country at Body English Nightclub. Silver has been a top-touring DJ for more than 10 years and has traveled with many legendary country artists including Brad Paisley, Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan.
  5. Place a bet on “Fast Cars and Freedom.”
    • While on property, head over to the Race & Sports Book powered by CG Technology to place a bet on NASCAR. Rascal Flatts will be singing the national anthem and Boyd will be performing during the pre-race festivities at the Kobalt 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sunday, March 8.
  6. There’s no bad seat in the house.
    • The Joint is an unparalleled entertainment destination that features a state-of-the-art sound system, superior video projections and tailor-made production packages. The venue will offer Rascal Flatts fans the best of both worlds with general admission pit access and reserved seating maxed at a 3,200 capacity to create a more intimate show for concertgoers.
  7. Two shows for the price of one.
    • As Rascal Flatts wraps up, music fans can head straight to Vinyl for a free show with Elvis Monroe. The band, comprised of members from Lifehouse, Matchbox Twenty and Emerson Drive, is known for its eclectic mix of alternative country, classic Americana and modern flavor. The group will perform at Vinyl at 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday, February 25; Wednesday, March 4; Friday, March 6; and Saturday, March 7.
  8. Rascal Flatts-themed menus.

2014 BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS! 
DON’T MISS THIS ONCE IN A LIFETIME MOMENT!To Air Live Sunday, May 18, 2014 From The MGM Grand Garden Arena on ABC at 8pm ET
Michael Jackson is music’s greatest innovator and among the most beloved performers and influential artists of all-time.  In this spirit, the Estate of Michael Jackson has created a Michael Jackson world premier experience, live at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards, on ABC May 18.  This is television history! Michael Jackson like you’ve never seen him before – you do not want to miss it!Perhaps no musician has made a bigger impact on the music industry than Michael Jackson. He is the greatest entertainer of all time. His use of groundbreaking visual effects, storylines and distinct complex dance routines transformed the music video into an art form as demonstrated by the short film, “Thriller.” The impact of Michael’s inventive short films helped catapult the art of music video into popular culture, and create for the music industry a profoundly effective promotional tool.Throughout his career Michael popularized a number of complicated dance techniques, such as the “robot” and the “moonwalk,” and he even designed and patented a special pair of shoes to accomplish an anti-gravity move. Through his use of spectacular imagery in his short films and orchestrated stage effects, Jackson launched a new era of innovation in live stage performances that continues to influence countless artists in hip hop, contemporary R&B, pop, and rock and roll.The Michael Jackson world premiere at the Billboard Music Awards 2014 follows in the footsteps (or dance steps!) of Michael’s most wonderful television moments.

On May 13, Epic Records, in conjunction with the Estate of Michael Jackson, will release XSCAPE, an album of new music by the internationally beloved music icon and King of Pop, Michael Jackson.  The project features eight new tracks, which the world will be hearing for the very first time on the new album.  The first single from the album, Michael Jackson’s “Love Never Felt So Good,” produced by Michael Jackson, John McClain, Giorgio Tuinfort and Paul Anka, was released last week along with a duet version of “Love Never Felt So Good,” with Michael Jackson and Justin Timberlake, produced by Timberlake, Timbaland and Jerome “J-Roc” Harmon.  The single lit up the iTunes charts around the world, peaking at #5 in the U.S., #1 in 17 countries and #5 in 67 countries. It debuted at No. 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart — Jackson’s highest bow since 1995 and fourth-highest debut ever — marking his 49th hit single.

To date Jackson has sold 1 billion records worldwide, released 13 No.1 singles on the Hot 100 (a record for a male artist) and became one of a handful of artists to be inducted twice into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

“SPF POWERED BY RADIO.COM” PRESENTED BY
THE COSMOPOLITAN OF LAS VEGAS AND CBS RADIO ON SATURDAY, AUG. 17

ROBIN THICKE, JASON DERULO AND SAMMY ADAMS HEADLINE SUMMER MUSIC SPECTACULAR LIVE FROM THE BOULEVARD POOL

Breakout pop artists Robin Thicke, Jason Derulo and Sammy Adams have been named as the main acts of the inaugural Summer Pool Fiesta (SPF) concert powered by Radio.com at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on Saturday, Aug. 17.  With the Las Vegas Strip as the background, the luxury resort’s Boulevard Pool will play host to the star-studded event.  Fans can watch a live broadcast of SPF streaming on Radio.com and YouTube beginning at 8:00PM, PT.

CBS RADIO stations nationwide will award hundreds of listeners complimentary access to the show, with many receiving a trip to Las Vegas with superior travel and accommodations at The Cosmopolitan, and exclusive access on-site at SPF. Tickets for the concert go on sale Friday, July 26 at 10:00AM, PT and are available online at www.cosmopolitanlasvegas.com or through Ticketmaster at 800-745-3000.  General admission tickets are $35 (plus applicable taxes and services charges). A limited number of premium cabanas are also available by emailing NightlifeMarketing@cosmopolitanlasvegas.com or by calling 702.698.7778. SPF is an all-ages show.  Guests must be 21+ to reserve a cabana.

Born in Los Angeles, the award-winning multiplatinum superstar Robin Thicke taught himself to play piano at the age of 12 and by 16 was writing and producing songs for artists including Brandy, Color Me Badd, and Brian McKnight.  By the age of 21, he had written and produced songs on over 20 gold and platinum albums including those from Michael Jackson, Marc Anthony, Pink, Christina Aguilera, and others.

Thicke’s recently released single, “Blurred Lines,” features T.I. and Pharrell, is a bona fide worldwide smash, having reached No.1 in 80 countries to date. The track is the first single from Thicke’s sixth studio album, which is due to be released this summer and has already crossed a number of radio formats.  He has toured with Beyonce and Mary J Blige, and been honored with the VH1 Soul/Vibe award for “Best Breakthrough Artist,” as well as received nominations from BET, MTV, and the American Music Awards.

Two albums in from bursting on the scene in 2009, Jason Derulo has sold over 15 million tracks domestically with almost 10 billion in cumulative radio audience and nearly 700 million views on his YouTube channel due to a string of Top 10 singles: “Watcha Say,” “In My Head,” “Ridin’ Solo,” “Don’t Wanna Go Home” and “It Girl.”

The talented performer has sealed his reputation as a global chart-topping star. He was a five-time winner at the BMI Pop Awards, including being honoured as “Songwriter of the Year” in 2011.  Derulo has also received a string of nominations including nods from the Teen Choice Awards, the MTV Europe Music Awards, the MOBO Awards and others.

His third album, Tattoos, hits stores this fall.  The lead-single, “The Other Side,” is produced by Ammo (Katy Perry, Ke$ha) and Martin Johnson (Taylor Swift, Hot Chelle Rae, Hannah Montana, The Used), and became the No. 1 most added record on the Top 40 charts in 2013 with over 120 adds across the country in its first week: just 25 stations short of the all-time record set by former touring mate Lady Gaga.  The track is currently Top 5 at mainstream radio across the United States, and an international success, as well.

From Cambridge, Mass., 25-year-old rising artist Sammy Adams stormed the music scene with his major-label debut single “Blow Up,” a hypnotic head-nodding beat looking at what life is like for this young musician.  Adams began to write rhymes and create beats while in high school, but it was at Trinity College that he came up with the idea for his breakthrough single “I Hate College,” a cheeky remix of Asher’s Roth’s “I Love College.” After Adams’ friend posted it on his blog in August 2009, the track spread like wildfire among students across the Northeast and he began booking shows at colleges who were impressed with the new talent.

Adams built such a sizable following through touring that his independently released album Boston’s Boy shot to the top of the iTunes Hip-Hop/Rap chart on its first day out in March 2010.  In September 2010, Adams released his first mixtape, Party Records, a seamless blend of dubstep, bass music, and electro-house with beats by Rusko, Deadmau5, Bassnectar, and other EMD giants. He went on to open for such artists as Kid Cudi, Drake, Nicki Minaj, LMFAO, Ludacris, and J. Cole, and performed 180 headlining shows in the U.S. and Canada over the past year.
