SUNSET ROCKFEST with Dee Snider, Dokken and LA Guns featuring Steve Riley and Kelly Nickels to perform at Sunset Station Amphitheater

SUNSET ROCKFEST with Dee Snider, Dokken and LA Guns featuring Steve Riley and Kelly Nickels to perform at Sunset Station Amphitheater

Saturday, July 27, 2019. Doors open at 5 p.m.

Tickets on sale – Friday, June 14, 2019 at 10 a.m.

 

Let’s rock! SUNSET ROCKFEST with rock legends Dee Snider, Dokken and L.A. Guns featuring Steve Riley and Kelly Nickels will make a special appearance at the Sunset Amphitheater at Sunset Station on Saturday, July 27, 2019. Tickets start at $25 and go on sale Friday, June 14, 2019 at 10 a.m.

Of course, best known as the lead singer of the acclaimed rock band, Twisted Sister, Dee Snider is more than a musician. Dee is a radio personality, television host, author, screenplay writer, actor, and most of all he is a doting husband of 27 years, and father of four children. In radio, Dee begins his eighth year hosting the nationally-syndicated “House of Hair.” The weekly show is heard in more than 175 markets across the country. Never setting limits, Dee wrote, produced, and acted in “Dee Snider’s Strangeland.” This horror flick immediately struck a resonant chord with a legion of horror fans, elevating the movie to one of the most rented movies in its class. But don’t think music is in Dee’s past. While he recently reunited with his original Twisted Sister mates, he keeps creating. His latest creation Van Helsing’s Curse is an 18 piece rock orchestra that mixes everything from Black Sabbath to Beethoven. Set to a spooky story line, written and narrated by Snider himself, Van Helsing’s Curse has been hailed by critics as the new soundtrack for Halloween.

Dokken is an American heavy metal and hard rock band formed in 1978. They split up in 1989 but reformed four years later. The group accumulated numerous charting singles, has sold more than 10 million albums worldwide and was nominated for a GRAMMY Award in 1989. After success with their debut album Breaking the Chains, the band released three consecutive platinum-selling albums, including 1984’s Tooth and Nail, 1985’s Under Lock and Key and 1987’s Back for the Attack. The band’s success continued into the 2000s, with their most recent release, 2018’s Return to the East Live.

L.A. Guns was formed in 1986 and signed with Polygram Records in 1987, recording their first album that summer. This first album, titled L.A. Guns, went on to sell more than 750,000 copies and earned the band its first gold album. Tours with AC/DC, Iron Maiden and Def Leppard followed. A compilation of the videos made from this first album also earned the band a gold video award. L.A. Guns went into the studio to record their second album, Cocked and Loaded, in the spring of 1989. It was a hit right away with the release of “Rip and Tear” as the first single and video. “Never Enough” and “The Ballad of Jayne” followed, pushing album sales over 1,000,000 and earning the band its first platinum record. The band’s third album, Hollywood Vampires, was recorded in the fall of 1990. With the release of “Kiss My Love Goodbye” as the first single and video, and another successful world tour, the album went on to sell 700,000 copies and earned the band its third consecutive gold album. With more than 30 years’ worth of noteworthy material, the band have proved to be true warriors of the 80s genre and are geared to tear it up across the world giving audiences the high octane rock ‘n roll that is L.A. Guns.

Tickets to SUNSET ROCKFEST with Dee Snider, Dokken and L.A. Guns featuring Steve Riley and Kelly Nickels are $25, $30, $35 and $45 plus tax and applicable fees for general admission and go on sale Friday, June 14, 2019 at 10 a.m. Doors open at 5 p.m. and guests under 21 must be accompanied by an adult.

PIZZA FORTE OPENS SECOND LOCATION AT
HARD ROCK HOTEL & CASINO LAS VEGAS

The city’s newest pizza concept, Pizza Forte, opened its second Las Vegas location. Located at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas and just steps away from the property’s bustling pool scene, this new location is 1,200 square feet offering walk-up counter service seven days per week. The first Pizza Forte opened earlier this year at Sunset Station in Henderson, Nev.

THIRTY YEARS OF TRADITION AND A DREAM
Pizza Forte is the brand-new, casual quick-serve restaurant and the realized dream of Chef Mimmo Ferraro and his wife, Nikki. In addition to Pizza Forte, Mimmo is the executive chef for his family’s restaurant, Ferraro’s Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar. In 2015, the family celebrates its 30th year in Las Vegas; Ferraro’s remains the longest family owned and operated Italian restaurant in the city. The family’s goal is to open nine additional Pizza Forte locations within the next 18 to 24 months.

“The dream began while talking with friends and family about how we could develop a concept of real Italian food that was fresh AND fast. Nearly 10 years later, Pizza Forte became a reality,” says Chef Mimmo Ferraro.

THE MENU
Loosely translated from the Italian as “powerful pizza,” Pizza Forte offers New York-style pizza and square, Roman-style pan pizza by the slice with toppings including homemade sausage and fresh vegetables, as well as gluten-free options. In addition to freshly made pizza, fountain drinks, Italian soft drinks and desserts including cannolis and tiramisu, Pizza Forte also offers housemade meatball sandwiches and is the only Las Vegas dining venue to offer three varieties of Hofmann hot dogs: 100 percent beef, pork-and-beef and pork-and-veal varieties. The location also offers to-go items and hotel room delivery. Domestic and imported beer, as well as red and white wine will be available.

THE DECOR
The restaurant’s décor is old world meets new world with an industrial twist. Walls are lined with white-washed brick, while accent walls resemble reclaimed wood featuring baking pans and other cooking tools, as well as chalkboards with tongue-and-cheek drawings.

The Hard Rock Hotel location offers guest the option of placing orders at the walk-up counter or via room service, marking the first time hotel guests will be able to order pizza from an on-property restaurant every day of the week.

The brand new location is open starting at 11 a.m. daily.

The new Keno Lounge also is a part of the Mega 10 Statewide Progressive with a jackpot at more than $1 million, and the cost to play is only $1.50.

 

Most games at Green Valley Ranch Resort begin at $1 on up per game. Games are offered as straight tickets, way tickets and multi-race tickets.

About Cure 4 The Kids:
The Children’s Specialty Center of Nevada and the Hemophilia Treatment Center Of Nevada are funded, in part, by the Cure 4 The Kids Foundation. The 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization was founded in 2007 by Dr. Jonathan Bernstein to ensure children with life threatening illnesses received proper medical attention regardless of their family’s income or presence of health insurance. To date, more than 8,000 patients have been treated by physicians and medical staff at the Children’s Specialty Center and Hemophilia Treatment Center. The Children’s Specialty Center provides medical treatment to children facing devastating diseases such as cancer, rheumatological diseases, as well as rare and ultra rare diseases. All our providers are Board Certified in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology. The Hemophilia Treatment Center (HTC) of Nevada is the only Federally recognized HTC in the state. It is one of 140 HTCs around the country which provides individual services to children and adults with inherited bleeding disorders. Studies show people with Hemophilia who are treated at Federally recognized HTCs have lower overall healthcare costs, lower hospitalization rates and lower mortality rates than non-HTC users. The Cure 4 The Kids Foundation’s Charity Care plan ensures patients at The Children’s Specialty Center and the Hemophilia Treatment center receive medical treatment regardless of family income or presence of medical insurance. www.cure4thekids.org

UFC announces Las Vegas partnership for first annual International Fight Week

UFC® PARTNERS WITH LAS VEGAS TO CREATE FIRST ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL FIGHT WEEK

Las Vegas, Nevada – The Ultimate Fighting Championship® organization and the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority are proud to announce the first annual International Fight Week will take place around the hottest ticket of the summer – UFC 148 – from July 3 through July 7.

International Fight Week will be the ultimate week-long experience for UFC fans. The inaugural week long celebration of the UFC will feature the largest ever gathering of fighters and unprecedented access to UFC stars, the biggest UFC Fan Expo yet, open workouts with UFC 148 fighters, pool parties and pub crawls hosted by fighters and Octagon Girls, a concert and, of course, the week will cumulate with one of the biggest sporting events of the year: UFC 148: SILVA vs SONNEN II.

Some of the most memorable UFC events in history have taken place around 4th July weekend and a firm tradition was born in July 2009, when the milestone UFC 100 event brought over 60,000 fight fans from around the world to Vegas.

The UFC’s ability to draw fans from not only all over the US but around the world to the company’s hometown has not gone unnoticed by the LVCVA. Now, the UFC and LVCVA have partnered to make the July fight event not just a Las Vegas tradition, but a signature sporting occasion which will draw fans from all over the globe to the fight capital of the world. This will become an annual tradition for the UFC in Las Vegas.

“For years the UFC has done a big Vegas show around the Fourth of July weekend and now we’ve made it a focal point in our calendar,” said UFC President Dana White. “For UFC 148, we’ve got fans coming in from all over the country, tons of people from Brazil and Canada and as far away as England, Japan and Australia to see this fight.

“Las Vegas is the UFC’s hometown. This is where our headquarters are, this is where we are from and we’re proud to be contributing to the local economy. The first annual International Fight Week will be awesome, the fans are going to have a fight week experience better than anything they’ve ever had before, and each year we are going to build this thing to the point where every fan on the planet knows they have to come to Vegas for this July fight week at least once in their lives.”

Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority President and CEO Rossi Ralenkotter added: “The UFC has evolved into a world-wide brand, generating interest from all over the globe. Las Vegas and UFC is a partnership of two great brands and International Fight Week will attract visitors from all over the world. There’s no better destination for a special event of this magnitude than Las Vegas.”

Some of the biggest properties in Las Vegas will be hosting UFC themed events during International Fight Week, including the MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay, the Palazzo, the Wynn, the Palms, the EA Sports Lounge at the Cosmopolitan, a Fremont Street experience at the D, Golden Nugget, Golden Gate and El Cortez plus much more.

The confirmed timetable thus far for International Fight Week is attached, and highlights include:

· Final UFC 148 press conference, free and open to public, at Lagasse Stadium at the Palazzo, Tuesday July 3
· Octagon Nation Truck, with fighter appearances and interactive features, will be at the world-famous Fremont Street from July 4 until fight night
· A free 4th July concert at Fremont Street featuring 3 Doors Down
· FUEL TV will be reporting live from Fremont Street on July 4 and 5
· UFC 148 Open Workouts at XS at Wynn
· Pool Parties at the Mandalay Bay and Palms
