Madame Tussauds Las Vegas Launches The Hangover Bar

The one-of-a-kind immersive experience is now open to all

 

Grab the wolf pack and head over to Madame Tussauds Las Vegas, where The Hangover Bar is open for all to enjoy. Guests will be transported to the scene of Phil, Stu, Alan, and Doug’s rooftop toast that kicked off “The Hangover” film’s uproarious series of events.

Industrial design elements that invoke the roof of Caesars Palace, where the scene takes place, include ducting tables and pipes, an aircon feature, an LED backdrop of the world-famous Las Vegas skyline, and more.

The full-service bar will offer specialty drinks inspired by “The Hangover” including the Wolf Pack (jägermeister), the Buttery Nipple(buttershots liqueur, irish cream), the Royal Flush (peach schnapps, jägermeister, cranberry juice), and the 3 Leg Monkey (root beer vodka, crown royal, coke).

The Hangover Bar is the latest addition to Madame Tussauds Las Vegas and The Hangover Experience, which currently features the notorious hotel suite and wedding chapel, as well as figures of Alan (portrayed by Zach Galifianakis), Phil (portrayed by Bradley Cooper), and Mike Tyson.

“We’re always looking for new ways for guests to interact within the attraction,” said General Manager Gabriel Hewitt. “The Hangover Bar is a natural extension of The Hangover Experience, allowing guests to order up drinks and toast to a time in Vegas they’ll never forget, all against a stunning LED backdrop of the city.”

Guests looking to take their experience to new heights can purchase the Highroller Package for $75.00 at the Madame Tussauds box office. Included in the package, thrill seekers will receive admission into Madame Tussauds, a half-hour open bar at The Hangover Bar, as well as a day-time admission ticket to the world’s tallest observation wheel, located at The Linq Hotel and Casino, with an in cabin open bar and bartender for 30 minutes to serve up the fun.

In conjunction with Warner Bros., Madame Tussauds Las Vegas launched The Hangover Experience, which celebrates the popular comedy trilogy, in January 2015.

Mike Tyson to Unveil His Madame Tussauds Wax Figure on Dec. 1 in Las Vegas

BOXING LEGEND, ENTERTAINER MIKE TYSON TO UNVEIL WORLD’S FIRST
MIKE TYSON MADAME TUSSAUDS WAX FIGURE IN LAS VEGAS

ON TUESDAY, DEC. 1

New Figure to Be Modeled after Tyson’s Role in Warner Bros. Pictures’ “The Hangover”

On Tuesday, Dec. 1 at 11 a.m., Mike Tyson will come face to face with…Mike Tyson. He will unveil the world’s first Mike Tyson wax figure at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas. The figure is modeled after his star turn as himself in Warner Bros. Pictures’ “The Hangover.” After the figure is revealed, he will permanently be on display inside the attraction’s The Hangover Experience and positioned right next to his beloved tiger, forever trapped inside of the bathroom.

Tyson posed for the figure this spring for nearly two hours with a team of 10 artists capturing nearly 300 measurements of his athletic frame. As with all Madame Tussauds’ figures, Tyson’s figure represents his real-life size and likeness. Approximately 20 artists took nearly six months to create the figure. After Tyson posed, his measurements used for the figure were first sculpted in clay by hand and then covered in a plaster cast. Once the clay was removed from the cast, the wax was poured in and allowed to cool. Nearly six weeks were spent meticulously inserting each hair by hand, which is customary for Madame Tussauds’ studio team. Finally, the figure was fitted with acrylic eyes and teeth, while countless layers of tinted paint were applied to build up skin tones and replicate his iconic face tattoo. Similar to role in the movie, Tyson will be dressed in a shirt and jacket.

“I am truly honored to be an addition to the Madame Tussauds celebrity collection,” says Tyson. “I knew the replica of me would be of high caliber but I was blown away at the details and how much it truly looked identical to me. Side by side, it’s almost impossible to tell the difference.”

As for where Tyson’s figure will be, The Hangover Experience is Madame Tussauds’ newest themed room, based on Warner Bros. Pictures’ The Hangover, the popular comedy trilogy. Launched on National Hangover Day, January 1, 2015, the experience is complete with the notorious hotel room, a smashed replica of the Las Vegas Metropolitan police car and the wedding chapel as seen in the film. The room also features two additional character figures from “The Hangover” Trilogy, “Alan” (played by Zach Galifianakis) and “Phil” (played by Bradley Cooper). Madame Tussauds began creating The Hangover Experience in July 2014.  The 1,100-square-foot room was created in conjunction with Warner Bros. Consumer Products.

To purchase tickets to be the first to see Tyson and Madame Tussauds’ collection of more than 100 figures, go to www.MadameTussauds.com/LasVegas.

“THE HANGOVER EXPERIENCE,” NEW
“ALAN” FIGURE

Madame Tussauds Launches New Sweepstakes

It was the bachelor party that set a new standard for Las Vegas, and this January, the epic adventure is coming to life. Madame Tussauds Las Vegas will launch its newest themed room: The Hangover Experience complete with the notorious hotel room, a smashed replica of the Las Vegas Metropolitan police car and a wedding chapel. Also making its debut will be Madame Tussauds’ brand new figure of “Alan” (played by Zach Galifianakis in The Hangover films) who will be joining the figure of “Phil” (played by Bradley Cooper in the films). The 1,100-square-foot room, based on Warner Bros. Pictures’ The Hangover, pays homage to the popular comedy trilogy, whose original movie turns five this year.

On Thursday, Jan. 1, 2015 – also known as National Hangover Day – media will be invited to the infamous scenes where the films’ shenanigans took place.  Due to limited space, the event will be invitation-only. The Hangover Experience will officially debut to the general public at 4 p.m. that same day.

The newest wax figure to join the Wolf Pack will be of Zach Galifianakis as “Alan,” appropriately styled in his iconic “Human Tree” T-shirt, white jeans, sneakers and, of course, his famous satchel.

Created in conjunction with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, Madame Tussauds began creating The Hangover Experience in July 2014. As for the creation of the “Alan” figure, a team of 20 Madame Tussauds studio artists began creating in March 2014. They were inspired by his comic demeanor in the film including his ensemble, as well as his look and mannerisms.

The team began the process by researching and incorporating more than 200 measurements for the initial clay mold. Once the clay mold was completed, the artists created a plaster cast, into which they poured a mixture of beeswax and Japan wax. Over the course of six weeks, one artist inserted each strand of hair by hand, sporting up to 10,000 strands. Lastly, acrylic eyes and teeth, as well as lifelike paint were added as the finishing touches.

The Nevada Film Office says the film’s influence can still be felt to this day – from guests asking Caesars Palace’s front desk if Caesar indeed slept there, to visitors wanting to see all of the sites featured in the movie. To date, The Hangover remains the highest grossing R-rated film of all time with a domestic gross of $300 million. According to the NFO, The Hangover was shot over 15 days bringing nearly a $4 million economic boost to the area.

The Hangover has been a great movie for Las Vegas, inspiring countless visitors to experience the destination for themselves,” says Cathy Tull, senior vice president of marketing, Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. “This new attraction at Madame Tussauds is an excellent example of how Las Vegas continues to offer visitors new and unique world-class experiences – all of which offer more reasons to plan their next Las Vegas trip.”

A national sweepstakes is now launched with a grand prize including roundtrip airfare for two to Las Vegas, Nevada, a two-night stay at Caesars Palace Las Vegas Hotel & Casino, a VIP tour of Madame Tussauds Las Vegas and The Hangover Experience, The Hangover Trilogy prize pack and dinner for two.

ABOUT FRENCH MONTANA:
The streets are talking: French Montana is one of the hottest rappers in the game right now. And what the streets want, the streets shall get.

The Bronx representing rapper waded through a fierce bidding war when several labels began taking interest. Among these, were Def Jam, Warner Bros. and Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music. Yet, when all was said and done, Montana came afloat announcing that he was ready to ride the wave with hip hop impresario Sean “Diddy” Combs’ Bad Boy Records (via Interscope Records).

The partnership, made possible due to Bad Boy president Harve Pierre, makes perfect sense. The label has earned a reputation of igniting the careers of bubbling street artists, transforming them into steaming hot hip hop game changers; a path which fit into French Montana’s vision.

Born Karim Kharbouch in Casablanca, Morocco, Montana immigrated to New York City with his family at age 13. His parents, seeking greater opportunity than what they could find in their native land, settled in The Bronx. While fluent in French and Arabic, Montana spoke only a small bit of English. However, he quickly became acclimated to Bronx culture, partly through his infatuation for hip-hop; an obsession which would later become his profession.

“I just love hip-hop. [At first] the rapping was just a hobby,” explains Montana. “I figured out it was a career when I got my first check, [after] I came out with the Cocaine City DVD. It was a winner from the jump.”

“Winning,” it was; but Montana is no new jack that got lucky. This shot caller’s come up dates back almost a decade. When street DVD’s were king, Montana’s Cocaine City series, which he began dropping in 2002, were grassroots video royalty. Featuring raw and uncut interviews with both up-and-coming and established artists like Jadakiss, 50 Cent and Young Jeezy, each volume was also interspersed with music from Montana himself. “The DVDs were always the plan for me to get on as far as rapping,” says Montana. “It was a platform. It was a stepping stone.”

The next step in his journey to rap riches was solidifying his growing fanbase by dropping great music. Acclaimed projects including his Mac & Cheese and Coke Wave series of mixtapes established his rep as a hustler with legit rhyme skills that listeners could steadily gravitate to. Mixtapes, viral videos and songs like “Choppa Choppa Down,” featuring Waka Flocka Flame, only heightened Montana’s buzz.

That buzz was amplified with the release of his single, “Shot Caller,” in 2011. The song became a runaway smash, earning major airplay across the nation and certifying Montana as the next big rapper out of NYC. “I just caught on fire. They say every couple of years someone comes and sweeps the streets,” says Montana. “First it was DMX, then it was 50. I guess it’s my turn now.”

His decade long journey to the top has not come without its own set of trials and tribulations—the greatest of these, a late night shooting of which Montana fell victim. All of his struggle, as well as success, will no doubt come to light on his debut album, Excuse My French, which is due out this year.

The album, which is being executive produced by Diddy and Rick Ross, with Harve Pierre serving as co-executive producer, has already been named by Complex Magazine as one of the “most anticipated albums of 2012.” The project features several guest appearances, including: Max B, Drake, Rick Ross (and the rest of the Maybach Music Group), Bad Boy and of course his Coke Boys crew (Chinx Drugz, Charlie Rock, Cheeze and Flip). Production will be handled mostly by longtime collaborator Harry Fraud (“Shot Caller”).

While the streets patiently await Montana’s highly anticipated official debut, he continues to stay in the mix. Having become highly sought after as a guest artist, he has lent his talents to Rick Ross’ smash street single, “Stay Schemin,” as well as Akon’s, “Hurt Somebody.” XXL Magazine recognized and placed Montana on the magazine’s annual Freshman Class list which highlights rappers on the rise. And recently, Montana dropped yet another fiery mixtape, Coke Boys 3.  He plans to drop Mac & Cheese 3 in the near future.

Following through on the enormous expectations he has built up for himself is a matter of keeping his ear to the streets. “I just pay attention to what people say,” offers Montana, who is currently a featured act on Drake’s Club Paradise Tour. “The people chose me. You can’t come out and say you hot. The people gotta choose you.”

The people have spoken. Now please, excuse French Montana as he cooks up more hits.

ABOUT JEREMIH:
“I can make a great sex song anytime I want, without even saying a body part, without saying anything that would be omitted on the radio. Somehow I’ve just been given that ability,” Jeremih remarks matter-of-factly, not even the hint of a mischievous grin on his face. The man knows his talent, and his calling card. And as enviable as that talent is, no man of Jeremih’s intelligence and versatility would be satisfied in a pigeonhole: “In no way do I feel that ‘Birthday Sex’ defines me as an artist, or defined my first album. People are quick to make comparisons: ‘he’s the next R. Kelly, he’s the next Dream.’ That’s flattering talk but we’re all different, as people and as artists.”

Indeed, 23-year-old Jeremih Felton has planted his own flag among the glittering banner acts at Def Jam: “I feel like I’m on the best label I could be on; I’m not intimidated by anyone musically, and I’m honored and inspired by the artists around me. There were a lot to choose from, a lot of labels were interested in a short period of time, but I didn’t get this far by making bad decisions. And to be blessed with L.A. Reid’s thoughts and even his critiques, I couldn’t ask for anything more.”

So the stage is set for Jeremih’s sophomore album, All About You, dropping September 28th. The singer/ rapper/producer/multi-instrumentalist has again aligned with producer Mick Schultz to deliver eleven songs long on sophistication, sex appeal, and even some old soul. “Mick and I have a great chemistry; we entered the game together, and we have albums’ worth of music,” Jeremih imparts. “I want him to get known too; I’m not selfish like this has to be the Jeremih show. This album is a great showcase for his ability as well as my own. Once people hear this album, others will recognize what I recognized in him and reach out for more of what we create.”

What they create is a sonic palate ranging from subtle savoir-faire to unapologetic, house-shaking climax. First single “I Like,” featuring labelmate Ludacris and co-written by Keith James, is pure babymaking bliss. Jeremih’s uncanny falsetto wends into Ludacris’ irresistible, irrepressible flow, bobbing and weaving with Schultz’s bubbly, scaled-back rhythm. Elsewhere, the titular track is a languid 4/4 offset by sawing high-octave synth riffs. But Jeremih’s vocals, smacking of a young Michael, steal the show. Rare is a falsetto this controlled, this textured, this evocative. Listen for it also on “Take Off,” what Jeremih terms a relationship record told from the lesser-heard male point of view: “Guys have feelings too, guys get hurt, and this record expresses that. There’s a point when we feel like we’ve done enough in trying to work this out, and now it’s best if I take off for the both of us. I can say I been there, but I also hear this from a lot of peers. Women can relate to it too, even if it’s not from their perspective.”

“Down on Me” featuring 50 Cent is a supersmash in the waiting. 50 unleashes an insistent, machine-gun flow, while Jeremih contorts himself through some outrageous vocal acrobatics. His voice, spiced with an island cadence, bends and stretches about one of the nastiest hooks R&B has seen in quite some time. “Down on Me” is definitely a song to be up on. “I’ve always respected 50 and always wanted to work with him,” Jeremih notes. “I wanted to reach out to a couple artists who could bring to the table what I know I do.”

Jeremih doesn’t lack for confidence. Nor should he. A native of the unforgiving Southside Chicago ―“a city full of talent”― streets, Jeremih kept to a positive path, honing his prodigious musical chops on saxophone, drums, and piano. He graduated high school a year early and enrolled at the University of Illinois as a prospective engineering major. Bookworm by day, beatmaker by night. “I write off beats,” Jeremih reveals. “I’m a producer myself, that’s how I thought I’d initially get into the game. After a while, I just got to writing to the beats. And at the time, I was rapping, not singing.” Indeed, the U of I campus couldn’t hold Jeremih; he transferred to Columbia College, one of Chicago’s preeminent creative schools.

“That’s where I met Mick Schultz and started vibing with him,” he continues, “And began singing over his beats, because that’s what a lot of his stuff called for at the time. But singing and rapping both came natural; that stemmed from playing instruments growing up. Playing the piano taught me how to sing, or at least how to sound out, reach, and hold notes.”

Jeremih holds notes, and court, on All About You. The album has a depth, a sense of growth, an exploratory side. “The Five Senses” is a slow, sultry firestarter featuring Jeremih’s peerless tone. Then there’s “Broken Down,” full of ominous piano chords and cadenced like a frozen moment in jazz or soul lore. And “Holding On,” the subsequent track: “After being broken down, you gotta keep holding on,” Jeremih affirms. “It’s about trying to see the future when you’re going through something in the moment that’s getting you down. I played this for my Grandpops and a lot of older listeners and they really responded to it. I’m proud of this song and how far I’ve come as an artist.”

Jeremih has other reasons to be proud. Concurrent with his album release, he’ll be appearing on the second season of BET’s popular series, Rising Icons. Icons, presented by Grey Goose vodka, pulls back the curtains and chronicles the lives of rising stars, both at home and on tour. Jeremih will share the spotlight with fast risers such as J. Cole, Estelle, Laura Izibor, and B.O.B. Elsewhere, he’s been honing his pen game for other ballyhooed newcomers, including Jenna Andrews, for whom he and Mick wrote “Tumblin’ Down,” her debut single on Island Records. “I write what I feel, and with the pitch of my voice, I can write for a man or a woman,” he states. “My voice just has the ability to do a lot of different things.”

Speaking of different things, fans yearning for even more Jeremih can cop the Deluxe version of All About You, available via iTunes and featuring several tracks not on the physical CD. Expect also a Jeremih mixtape, on which the young star does as much spitting as singing: “I rapped a little on my last album with ‘Raindrops,’ and people asked ‘Who was that?’ Now, I have some new stuff that I went hard on that just didn’t fit with the theme of this album. So I’m looking forward to the mixtape to let people see that side of me. A lot of singers try to do it, and it can either A) turn all your fans away like ‘You need to stick to singing, fam’ or B) get you respect as being able to do both. I can put rhyme to a melody and have it accepted.”

It’s been a whirlwind couple years for Jeremih, first setting the Midwest ablaze with his indy anthem “My Ride,” following that up with the RIAA-certified platinum “Birthday Sex,” a nomination for an American Music Award, and now, an imminent sophomore album. “I’ve almost traveled the world in a year, and that’s an amazing experience. I now know what to expect this time around. When I do shows, I perform every song off the last album. People still want to hear those songs live, and those are from a year ago. So I’m excited to see the response to this material.” Jeremih recognizes that without his dedicated fans, none of these amazing experiences would be possible. That is why, on September 28th, he would like to tell each and every one of them it’s “All About You”.

ABOUT BROOKLYN BOWL:
Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas is the brand’s third location. With three levels spanning over 80,000 square feet, Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas is one of the largest performance venues in America and is described by People Magazine as being “on the fast path to being Vegas’ über cool place.” Located at The LINQ, the open-air district in the center of the Las Vegas Strip, the multi-dimensional space boasts 32 lanes of bowling, five on-site bars and rockin’ comfort food by the world-renowned Bromberg Brothers’ Blue Ribbon Restaurants, including their iconic Fried Chicken celebrated on Food Network’s “The Best Thing I Ever Ate.” On any given night, more than 2,000 concertgoers can enjoy live music programming from the general admission area, the luxurious bowlers’ lounges adjacent to the lanes, or the private lounge boxes overlooking it all. Since opening in March 2014, Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas has seen notable performances by Elvis Costello & The Roots, Jane’s Addiction, Phil Lesh & Friends, Primus, O.A.R. and 21 Pilots.

The original location opened in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn in 2009 in the former Hecla Iron Works building (built in 1882) and was the first L.E.E.D. certified bowling alley in the world. Brooklyn Bowl New York has hosted countless notable performances, including shows by Kanye West, Adele, Paul Simon, Moby and Guns N’Roses and has been named Zagat’s “Best Music Venue – New York City” for three consecutive years (as well as “Best Bowling Alley” and “Best Brooklyn Venue”) and one of the best clubs in America by Rolling Stone.  Eater described their menu as “epic,” while The New Yorker hailed the club’s unprecedented combination of top-flight music, beer, bowling, and food as “like nailing a spare on a four-ten split.” The second Brooklyn Bowl location opened in January 2014 at The O2 in London, and was hailed by The London Evening Standard as a “…wonderland of food, drink, music and pins”.

ABOUT: Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada (CCCFN) is a non-profit agency that provides support and services for families of children diagnosed with cancer. Children from birth to 21 years of age who have been diagnosed with cancer or who have survived cancer are eligible for services if they are living or being treated in Nevada.

Chartered in 1978, CCCFN was founded by two families, each of whom had a child being treated for cancer. They believed that families could find strength, knowledge and comfort by banding together during their most difficult times. They wanted to use their experience to lessen the burden of those they knew would follow. Since that time, over 2,000 children in Nevada have been diagnosed with cancer.

In the beginning, Candlelighters handled the needs of families entirely through a dedicated group of volunteers. Experienced parents were on-call 24 hours a day to counsel newly diagnosed families and assist them with their concerns.

Today, CCCFN serves approximately 100 families monthly, and as many as 600 families throughout the year. Candlelighters maintains a full-time office with professional staff available at all times for family
support.

There are no membership requirements or fees for families. A diagnosis of childhood cancer is the only requirement to become eligible for services. Referrals can come from any source as long as the family approves.

TICKETS: Tickets to BATMAN LIVE range in price from $19 to $79, and may be purchased at the Thomas & Mack Center Ticket Office, by phone at 702-739-FANS, online at www.unlvtickets.com , or at the Town Square Las Vegas Concierge.
