2014 BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS ANNOUNCE WINNERS
AT STAR-STUDDED EVENT WITH SHOW-STOPPING PERFORMANCES

A History-Making Michael Jackson Experience Topped an Evening with
World Premiere Performances and Special Appearances
Honoring Music’s Best and Brightest

The 2014 Billboard Music Awards, hosted by musician and actor Ludacris, made television history on Sunday night with a show bursting with never-before-seen superstar duos, explosive premiere performances and a once-in-a-lifetime Michael Jackson experience.  The show aired live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on ABC.

Justin Timberlake was the night’s big winner, taking home 7 awards including Top Artist, Top Male Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Radio Songs Artist, Top R&B Artist, Top Billboard 200 Album, and Top R&B Album.  Timberlake also took the lead in Album award wins with two. The record breaking summer hit “Blurred Lines” won the most Song categories with 4 wins in Top Hot 100 Song, Top Digital Song, Top Radio Song, and Top R&B Song. Imagine Dragons followed Timberlake with 5 artist awards including Top Duo/Group, Top Hot 100 Artist, Top Rock Artist, Top Rock Album and Top Streaming Song (Audio).  Pharrell Williams, Robin Thicke and T.I. each won 4 awards throughout the night as well.

The show opened with international superstars Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull and Claudia Leitte debuting their official 2014 FIFA World Cup song “We Are One (Ole Ola).”  The stage filled with colorful images of the worlds’ flags as the three stars were joined by dancers, drummers and flag girls to share this new anthem with the crowd.  In addition to kicking off the night’s musical performances, Lopez was honored with the prestigious ICON Award, making her the first woman in the four years of its existence, to receive the award for their remarkable and enduring contribution to popular music.

Television history was made with a thrilling, multi-dimensional dance performance of Michael Jackson’s “Slave to the Rhythm” during which fans experienced the groundbreaking magic and fantasy we know to expect from the greatest entertainer of all time.  The performance was created for fans by the Estate of Michael Jackson to capture the essence, the excitement and the magic that Jackson embodied.  Produced by the Estate and Pulse Evolution, it took over a year, and a team of 104 cast and crew, to create this one-of-a-kind full stage experience to showcase all that Michael was.

Milestone Award winner Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert made the television debut of their yet-to-be released new duet “Somethin’ Bad,” while Iggy Azalea and Ariana Grande performed their chart-topping single “Problem,” surrounded by a spirited cheerleading squad.  Azalea also performed her hit “Fancy.”

The evening featured special performances by Australian pop-punk band 5 Seconds of Summer who made their U.S. television performance debut with “She Looks So Perfect,” which hit No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 200 Chart.  Luke Bryan made a surprise appearance during country duo Florida Georgia Line’s performance of “This Is How We Roll,” before taking to the stage solo to perform his own “Play It Again.” Imagine Dragons performed “Tiptoe,” from their multi-platinum album “Night Visions” and took home the second most awards of any artist of the night with five.

Jason Derulo owned the stage during a performance of his hit “Talk Dirty,” which reached No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 list. John Legend sang his soulful “All of Me,” Robin Thicke delivered a heartfelt “Get Her Back”, and rock band OneRepublic pumped the crowd up with their hit “Counting Stars,” which has spent an impressive 47 weeks on the charts. Katy Perry sang “Birthday,” another television first, while Cyrus made her television debut performance of “Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds” featuring The Flaming Lips.  Lorde sang Billboard Adult Pop chart-topping hit “Tennis Court”, and Shakira sang a spicy rendition of her song “Empire.”  Lopez also sang her newest single off her upcoming tenth album, “First Love.”  Also debuting music from the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Ricky Martin sprang up through the stage floor to perform his new single “Vida,” which got everyone in the audience up on their feet.

Robin Thicke and Flo Rida at REHAB inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas, April 12 – 13

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas celebrated the debut of its double-dose of REHAB with music sensation Robin Thicke on Saturday, April 12 and award-winning artist Flo Rida on Sunday, April 13.

 

The unforgettable debauchery kicked off on Saturday as Thicke entered Las Vegas’ original dayclub through the sold-out crowd singing his hit song “Give It 2 U” before jumping on the poolside stage. The artist continued the show with “Blurred Lines” and “Magic” as fans cheered and sang along. Following his performance, Thicke thanked everyone for coming out saying, “I love you Hard Rock! Thank you so much REHAB! God bless you all! Let’s go!” Spotted in the crowd of revelers was comedian and actor Dave Chappelle.

 

On Sunday, Flo Rida kept the party going at REHAB after hosting at Body English Nightclub on Saturday evening where he filmed a music video for his new song “Rollercoaster” at both locations. The artist got low on the dayclub’s stage with Natalie La Rose while singing “Good Feeling,” “Wild Ones” and more. Taking partygoers by surprise, Flo Rida hopped on his bodyguard’s shoulders and walked through the swarm of guests while performing his hit song “Club Can’t Handle Me.” Throughout the afternoon, attendees cheered and danced as they partied within arm’s reach of the singer. Flo Rida even took a dip in the poolside tropical oasis to help cool off from the warm desert sun. Notable guests include professional football player Jameel McClain and “Pawn Stars” actor Austin “Chumlee” Russell.

 

This weekend also marked the launch of the property’s Pink Taco Brunch. The mega-hip Mexican cantina was packed with food enthusiasts who enjoyed the Sunday fiesta’s new menu items before heading to REHAB.

 

Over at Vinyl, metal band Sevendust performed an acoustic set on Saturday, where lead singer of In This Moment Maria Brink was seen with several of her band mates as well as Chris Kael of Five Finger Death Punch. The following evening Coachella act Bombay Bicycle Club rocked the stage to a group of admiring fans.

These measurements are tracked year-round by Billboard and its data partners, including Nielsen Entertainment and Next Big Sound. The awards are based on the reporting period of March 11, 2013 through March 9, 2014.  Since 1940, the Billboard charts have been the go-to guide for ranking the popularity of songs and albums, and are the ultimate measure of a musician’s success.

As previously announced, the 2014 Milestone Award presented by Chevrolet, will be given to an innovative artist who has achieved a notable chart milestone over the past year. The six finalists for this special editorial award were announced earlier last week on Billboard.com – they are: Imagine Dragons, John Legend, Luke Bryan, OneRepublic, Ellie Goulding and Carrie Underwood. Fans can vote for their favorite Milestone artist online at Billboard.com/milestone and can enter a contest for a chance to win an opportunity to present the award live at this year’s event alongside global music superstar and Billboard Music Award winner Kelly Rowland.

“I’m really looking forward to presenting the Chevrolet Milestone Award at this year’s Billboard Music Awards. I love being able to recognize fellow artists for their accomplishments and having the opportunity to present with a fan will make the evening that much more exciting!” said Kelly Rowland.   The six finalists will be narrowed down to three finalists, who will be announced on the website on April 21st.  Voting will then continue through the first two hours of the live 2014 Billboard Music Awards broadcast, culminating with the announcement of the award winner during the last hour of the show.

the cult

The Cult *just added*                                                                                                                                                Saturday, April 19 at 8 p.m.

Tickets start at $39.50                                                                                                                                               On sale Friday, March 14 at 10 a.m.
British rockers, The Cult, are one of the most influential and controversial rock bands of the late 20th century, selling millions of albums, headlining arenas and stadiums around the world, infusing innovative possibilities into the worlds of music and art, and quickly ascending through the ranks of the indie music world to achieve global status. And now, for one night only, they’ll be taking over The Joint. The Cult will rock out The Joint on Saturday, April 19.

 

As early as its first American tour in 1984, The Cult became one of the handfuls of important bands in the U.S. post-modern and hard rock communities. The band was embraced by the lost children of The Doors and Velvet Underground, and a generation that was waking up to the influence of ‘60s and ‘70s rock icons like Led Zeppelin, The New York Dolls and David Bowie.

 

Formed in Brixton, London in 1983 as Death Cult, The Cult’s music transformed from punk rock to post-punk, psychedelia, heavy dance music, and transcendental hard rock. As one journalist noted, “Using a few simple riffs and images, The Cult creates an entire environment, one more exciting and stimulating than our own.”

 

The constant core of The Cult is vocalist/lyricist Ian Astbury and guitarist/composer Billy Duffy. Attitude incarnate, the chemistry between these two vastly different artists – equal-parts genuine affection and palpable tension – remains the source of their long-standing partnership. Duffy grounds Astbury’s esoteric side with a hard rock perspective, and there is no doubt that at all times, these two have each other’s backs.

 queen

Queen + Adam Lambert *just added*                                                                                                                       Saturday, July 5 – Sunday, July 6 at 8 p.m.

Tickets start at $49.50                                                                                                                                               On sale Friday, March 14 at 10 a.m.
Queen + Adam Lambert will reign over a highly anticipated North American summer tour starting in June. Brian May, Roger Taylor + Adam Lambert will come together for the first time at The Joint on Saturday, July 5 and Sunday, July 6.

 

Queen + Adam Lambert received glowing reviews for their performance together at the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas last September, triggering a conversation between Adam, Roger and Brian to take the show on the road. Rolling Stone said, “Lambert astounded the audience on songs like ‘We Will Rock You’ and the closing ‘We Are The Champions’ and ‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love’. It was the most anticipated act of the night.” Billboard claimed, “…Queen effectively stole the show, with timeless songs that music fans of all genres can sing along to” and the Hollywood Reporter exclaimed, “Adam Lambert, Queen bring down the iHeart house. With the perfect mix of rock attitude mixed with style, theatricality, sex appeal and impressive vocal gymnastics, [Lambert] took the band’s music to new heights.”

 

The threesome first shared the stage during American Idol in May 2009 for a performance of “We Are The Champions”. They teamed up again in 2011 at the MTV European Music Awards in Belfast, Ireland for an electrifying eight-minute finale of “The Show Must Go On”, “We Will Rock You” and “We Are The Champions” and in the summer of 2012, Lambert performed a series of shows with Queen across Europe as well as dates in Russia, Ukraine and Poland. They also performed three sold-out gigs at London’s Hammersmith Apollo.

 

In a career spanning over 40 years Queen has amassed a staggering list of sales, awards, and hall of fame inductions that is second to none. Record sales in the hundreds of millions of units, including an unprecedented string of number one albums and top-charting singles that continue to put Queen in the top ten of all-time iTunes sales, seven Ivor Novello Awards, an MTV Global Icon Award, two songs enshrined in the Grammy Hall of Fame – “We Will Rock You” and “We Are the Champions” – which also remain the most played songs at sports events and arenas around the world, and, as if to qualify all of hyperbole, just last month Queen received the accolade of becoming the first artist ever to sell over six million copies of an album in the UK – beating out even the Beatles’ Sgt Pepper by close on a million copies – with their Greatest Hits album, which also achieved the record of over 1,422 weeks on the British album chart. The statistics show a staggering one in three British households now own a copy of the iconic act’s original Greatest Hits collection. Even with the tragic loss of their uniquely talented singer Freddie Mercury, Queen remain one of the most revered bands in rock and pop history, able to claim one of the most enduring song catalogues of all time. Just think: “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Another One Bites the Dust”, “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”, “Radio Ga Ga”, “Killer Queen”, “Fat Bottomed Girls”, “Bicycle Race”, songs that form the backdrop to the lives of generations of fans across all ages. With their sterling song craft, virtuoso musicality, and colossal spectacle of their live performances, Queen – Brian May, Freddie Mercury, Roger Taylor and John Deacon – captured hearts and conquered charts like no other band in history, a legacy that continues to live through the ongoing work and concert performances by May and Taylor. Their musical We Will Rock You, co-created with writer Ben Elton, is approaching its 12th year on stage in London’s West End and is currently touring North America.

 

Adam Lambert’s stunning performances on the eighth season of American Idol are still widely regarded as some of the most riveting moments in the show’s history. His debut album For Your Entertainment earned him a Grammy Award nomination for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance. His second album, Trespassing, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts. The subsequent tour took Lambert from Australia to South Africa, throughout Asia and Eastern Europe and culminated in a sold-out arena show in Helsinki, Finland. In 2013, Lambert appeared as a guest star on FOX’s hit TV series, “GLEE.” He is currently writing and recording for his third album, which will be released this year.

Boston fans will be able to experience this amazing live show at The Joint on Saturday, July 26.

 

BOSTON burst onto the music scene with their eponymous best-selling debut album in 1976, and never looked back. With over 17 million copies sold, Boston generated hits such as “More Than a Feeling,” “Peace of Mind,” and “Smokin’,” rock staples that are still in heavy rotation today. Their second effort, Don’t Look Back was another chart-topper that confirmed their place in rock history, followed by Third Stage, which hit #1 on the charts, with the top single of 1986, “Amanda.” With over 31 million albums sold to date, their music has stood the test of time, as evidenced by live BOSTON audiences that span generations.

 

Last December, BOSTON released their newest studio album, Life, Love & Hope on Frontiers Records. More than a decade in the making, Life, Love & Hope features 11 tracks embodying the classic and beloved BOSTON sound, as well as the latest in the evolution of Tom Scholz’ musical artistry. Diverse yet cohesive, this long-awaited album has something for everyone and will fulfill the expectations of its long time fans, while exposing a new generation to one of rock ‘n’ roll’s great acts.

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.

 

This show is for guests who are 18 years of age or older. All concertgoers must provide a valid form of identification upon arrival.

Revamped Look and New Menu Offerings

Trendsetting Restaurant Now Open Following Stylish Remodel

 

The iconic N9NE Steakhouse at Palms Casino Resort, Las Vegas’ premier celebrity dining hot-spot, has reopened following a chic makeover. Since the remodel, N9NE has attracted numerous celebrities to experience the steakhouse’s alluring vibe and top-notch cuisine including Matthew Perry, Robin Thicke, Paula Patton, Brody Jenner, Holly Madison, Floyd Mayweather and Pharrell Williams. As part of the $50 million renovation at Palms, N9NE’s remodel features stylish new décor, elegant draperies, sleek private dining areas and the introduction of the Center Table, a semi-private dining experience with prime location in the heart of the restaurant. The revamped venue also offers guests a selection of new menu additions created by Executive Chef Barry S. Dakake which complement N9NE’s signature dishes that have made the steakhouse famous.

“We are delighted to introduce a creative new menu and serve our guests in a stylish and vibrant space with an unmatched scene,” said Dakake, who has been leading the kitchen since opening in 2001. “Over the years, N9NE has become known for outstanding quality and service. With our recent additions, we intend to continue to meet and exceed the expectations of our guests.”

Sexy and modern, N9NE Steakhouse is adorned with exquisite fabrics, delicate draperies and soft lighting in a bustling, high-energy environment. Known to be frequented by A-list celebrities, the restaurant’s unforgettable style and lively atmosphere make N9NE the perfect location to kick off the party before a night out in Sin City. Guests celebrating special occasions can retreat to the Center Table, a beautiful space, enclosed by a sheer canopy of drapes and accented by an ornate custom-made chandelier hanging at the pinnacle of the room. N9NE also sports a reconfigured lounge with elevated high-top seating for a dazzling view of the dynamic steakhouse.

As N9NE continues to set the trend for steakhouse experiences in Las Vegas, the restaurant has added new items to the menu created by Chef Barry S. Dakake. Developed with the freshest ingredients and prepared to perfection, each new dish captures N9NE’s traditional flavor and culinary style while adding a new element of creativity to the menu. Additions include decadent entrees like the braised Kobe Beef Short Rib with horseradish crust and curried root vegetables or the 48oz. prime rib eye Tomahawk steak for two, grilled and pepper crusted with roasted bone marrow, seasonal vegetables, baby Dutch potatoes and a red wine sauce. Seafood lovers can enjoy the 3 pound succulent Lobster Thermidor, boasting whole Maine lobster meat sautéed then placed back in the shell where it is topped with gruyere cheese sauce and toasted garlic bread crumbs and finished with shallots, white wine and fresh herbs.

N9NE also introduces new dessert and beverage selections including hand-crafted barrel-aged cocktails. Created by N9NE mixologists, signature cocktails include whiskey based libations like the Rock & Rye made with Hochstetler’s Slow & Low, served over an ice sphere in a sherry rinsed whiskey glass, or the Fig Infused Manhattan, a flavorful adaptation of the classic made with Wild Turkey rye, Cinzano vermouth, black walnut bitters and fresh figs. Guests can top off a delicious meal with N9NE’s dessert menu featuring whimsical treats like the Some More S’mores, a fun twist on Chef Barry’s famous s’mores featuring homemade strawberry, orange Grand Marnier and amaretto hazelnut flavored marshmallows with white and dark chocolate ganache-covered graham crackers served hibachi style over an open flame.

For guests interested in the classics that have made N9NE a “must-try,” the restaurant has added a “Best of N9NE” section to the menu highlighting some of the famed steakhouse’s most popular dishes, including the heralded “Barry’s Steak,” a 10oz. grilled prime rib cap served with roasted cipollini onions, shishito peppers and red wine sauce.

In addition to the full menu, N9NE offers a three-course prix fixe menu nightly from 5:30 – 7 p.m. featuring select appetizers, entrees and dessert alongside two wine pairings for $59 per person. Reservations at N9NE Steakhouse are available by calling (702) 942-6800. For more information, visit www.palms.com.

THE COSMOPOLITAN OF LAS VEGAS ANNOUNCES
Gogol Bordello on Oct. 12 And Flux Pavilion on Oct. 30
At The Boulevard Pool
Tickets on sale Friday, July 26 at 10 a.m.

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas hosts performances by Gogol Bordello on Saturday, Oct. 12 at 9 p.m. and Flux Pavilion on Wednesday, Oct. 30 at 9 p.m. at the Boulevard Pool.

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

$25 for Gogol Bordello and $35 Flux Pavilion (plus applicable taxes and service charges).  A limited number of premium cabanas are also available by emailing NightlifeMarketing@cosmopolitanlasvegas.com or by calling 702.698.7778. Both shows are open to all-ages, and guests must be 21+ to reserve a cabana. Also on sale Friday are tickets to SPF, featuring Robin Thicke, Jason Derulo and Sammy Adams, on August 17.

Internationally renowned gypsy punk rock group Gogol Bordello returns with its sixth full-length album Pura Vida Conspiracy, a powerful collection of 12 surging new songs, on July 23.  Gogol Bordello has spent the last decade performing meteoric live shows, earning a solid reputation as “the hottest global touring act to come out of New York (Billboard),” and “the world’s most riotous live band (Rolling Stone).”  Gogol Bordello’s wildly energetic live shows are celebrated by fans worldwide, bringing the band to nearly every corner of the globe and to the main stage of festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Roskilde, Rock am Ring, Reading and Leeds to name just a few.

With the ability to sing and play a large variety of instruments, Flux Pavilion, also known as Joshua Steele, is a one man orchestra.  Steele grew up loving the high energy madness that dance music was capable of, and at a young age set about making some of his own.  His tunes were quickly put into circulation, and it was soon very clear that Steele had landed on his feet with the dubstep sound.  Before long, no club was safe from one of his bangers, and bookings all over the UK and Europe came flooding in.  With his career flourishing, Steele and childhood friend Doctor P teamed up with drum and bass pioneer DJ Swan-E and Earl Falconer of UB40 to form the infamous Circus Records.  Well known for his high energy performances and smashing anthems, Steele is now performing all over the globe.

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.

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.
