The Labor Day weekend festivities at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino continued with non-stop, star-studded parties on Sunday, Aug. 31.

On Sunday, the full day of fun started at REHAB, Las Vegas’ original dayclub, with a performance by multi-platinum artist Snoop Lion aka Snoop Dogg. The artist wowed thousands of screaming fans with hits “Drop It Like It’s Hot,” “Gin and Juice,” “Nuthin’ but a ‘G’ Thang,” “Young, Wild & Free” and “California Girls.” Guests also went wild, showed off their best dance moves and sang along as he covered “Jamming’” by Bob Marley, “All I Do Is Win” by DJ Khaled and more. Following his performance, Snoop Lion was spotted hanging out onstage with singer Trey Songz.

The revelry continued that night as PEEPSHOW headliner and “Ice Loves Coco” reality star Coco hosted Sunday School at Body English Nightclub & Afterhours. The star was joined by her husband, actor and rapper Ice-T, family and cast mates including reality star Josh Strickland as they commemorated the conclusion of PEEPSHOW’s four and a half-year run. The group had fun dancing and hanging out at their table. During the night, Coco and Ice-T hit the stage to thank fans for all their support. Then, Ice-T grabbed the microphone and surprised the crowd by rapping a couple songs as Coco danced alongside him. Among the partiers was founding member of 98 Degrees, Jeff Timmons. He was joined by cast members of his new male revue Men of the Strip.

Trey Songz headlined the night on Friday at TAO, continuing the Labor Day Weekend festivities. Joined by a group of friends, the Grammy-nominated singer fueled up at dinner in the restaurant’s private dining room, enjoying signature selections sent specially by the chef. Trey and friends then made their way to a VIP table on the dance floor. DJ Eric D-Lux announced his arrival to the nightclub and the room erupted with cheers as a sea of camera flashes added to the frenzy. Standing on top of his booth, Trey took in the packed club scene, waving to fans and dancing to hip hop tracks. He got on the mic soon afterward and greeted partygoers, wishing a happy birthday to a lucky lady at a neighboring table before jumping into an impromptu performance of his biggest songs including “Say Aah” and “2 Reasons.” DJ Eric D-Lux then dropped “Invented Sex” which then led into “Bottoms Up” while fans roared, belting word for word as Trey led them acapella.  All the while leading the charge from his VIP section, the music superstar graciously provided shots to the nearby table that was celebrating a birthday as well as to fans on the dance floor.

Also spotted at TAO Nightclub on Friday was rapper Tyga along with reality star Scott Disick who took in the revelry from VIP tables in the center of the club. After Trey Songz’ medley of hits, Tyga decided to keep the surprises rolling as he jumped into the DJ booth, shouting out Trey and his performance. Alongside DJ Eric D-Lux and Disick, Tyga continued to keep the party going with an energetic delivery of  “Faded” and “Hijack.”

ABOUT DAN YEAGER
Dan Yeager spent his early years as a star athlete in Columbia Station, Ohio. The son of a drywall man and a resourceful mother who made ends meet through a variety of odd jobs, and was one of five children. In his teen years, the family moved to Las Vegas, where Dan found the opportunity to pursue his lifelong acting ambitions. He participated in several community theater productions, before moving on to regional commercials, and finally, feature films. As he was getting his feet wet in the acting profession, Dan met and befriended actor Robert Quarry, revered by horror fans for his multiple portrayals of “Count Yorga” the vampire. Mr. Quarry was impressed with Dan’s 6’6,” athletic stature and the menacing look in the young man’s eyes. He told Dan, “Go to Hollywood. You’ll make a great living playing monsters!” Dan took the legend’s advice and later moved to Los Angeles.

Recently, Mr. Yeager caught the eye of several top Hollywood film producers who seriously considered him for a major role in the horror cult series “Texas Chainsaw.” He joined the cast, reprising the role of Leatherface in the latest installment “Texas Chainsaw 3D,” out in theaters January 4, 2013.

ABOUT ELI ROTH’S GORETORIUM
The multi-level maze of frights is the brainchild of director/actor Eli Roth, best known as the creator of the “Hostel” and “Cabin Fever” franchises, and for his role in front of the camera as Donny “The Bear Jew” Donowitz in Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds” for which he won SAG Best Ensemble and BFCA Critic’s Choice Award for Best Acting Ensemble. Eli Roth’s GORETORIUM immerses visitors into the tale of Sin City’s most deadly mythical hotel and casino, The Delmont.  The self-guided horror experience begins in the lobby of the Delmont and unveils gruesome and ghastly sights of past hotel guest victims and the serial-killing family behind the deeds at every turn. Employing high-tech Vegas showmanship with old-fashioned scares, the terrifying labyrinth of live actors, animatronic frights and stunning special effects is contained in a vintage hotel setting that rivals Hollywood’s best movie sets.

 

Eli Roth’s GORETORIUM also includes a freaky, 60’s inspired lounge called “Baby Dolls.”  Featuring a magnificent view of the Las Vegas Strip, the bar will entertain guests with caged zombie dancers and live “feedings.”  GORETORIUM also features a one-of-a-kind horror retail shop and a to-go bar called “Bloody Mary’s,” specializing in gruesomely themed cocktails.
