In “Legit,” Jefferies portrays a heightened version of himself as a comedian from Australia who realizes there’s more to life (and his career) than the rock and roll lifestyle of stand-up comedy. Prior to “Legit,” Jefferies appeared on numerous TV shows in England including Channel 4’s “The History of Offensive Humor,” BBC1’s “Heaven and Earth,” and ITV2’s “Comedy Cults.” U.S. audiences got their first taste of Jefferies when he appeared on HBO’s “Down and Dirty with Jim Norton,” which in turn lead to his critically acclaimed and international hit, one-hour HBO special, “I Swear to God.” He followed that up with a Showtime special titled “Alchoholocaust” and “Fully Functional” on the EPIX network.

IMAGINE DRAGONS CELEBRATED THEIR RECORD-BREAKING YEAR WITH A MEMORABILIA CASE DEDICATION AT HARD ROCK HOTEL & CASINO ON MONDAY, DEC. 30

Imagine Dragons with special guests The Mowgli’s and Parade of Lights returned to their hometown of Las Vegas for a sold out show at The Joint the same evening

Las Vegas’ hometown rockers and GRAMMY-nominated Imagine Dragons proved that 2013 was the year of the dragons as they commemorated their breakout year by unveiling their first-ever memorabilia case inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas on Monday, Dec. 30.

Bobby Reynolds, vice president of booking for AEG Live Las Vegas, and Chas Smith, vice president of entertainment for Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, were on hand to congratulate the band on their record-breaking year and welcome the musicians back to their hometown. Before addressing a crowd of adoring fans, Imagine Dragons band members Dan Reynolds, Ben McKee, Daniel Platzman and Wayne Sermon ripped off the covered case to reveal a full display of signature memorabilia from the band’s career. After, Dan Reynolds took the microphone to thank Hard Rock Hotel and fans for their support.

The special display, located right inside of the property from the main valet, features iconic items from the band’s music video “On Top of the World” including all four custom-made astronaut suits, an American flag, an Earth decorated beach ball, a small satellite dish and more. In addition, the case will be home to the rope that lead singer Dan Reynolds used to fly over the audience during Imagine Dragons’ sold-out February 2013 show at The Joint as well as an autographed copy of the property’s in-room Hard Rock Hotel Magazine, featuring the band on the cover.

The same evening, Imagine Dragons said goodbye to the final days of 2013 with a special sold out performance inside The Joint. The Las Vegas-based rockers were joined by special guests The Mowgli’s and Parade of Lights. Following, Dan Reynolds performed a DJ set inside Body English Nightclub & Afterhours.

featuring
THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS
WITH SPECIAL GUESTS PEPPER, PARADE OF LIGHTS
AND MORE TO BE ANNOUNCED

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 30 AT 7:00PM

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.
