Mark your calendars: Tiesto’s Vegas residency at The Hard Rock Hotel
Sat, Sep 4, 2010 (3:48 p.m.)
Okay, so we’re not exactly sure where superstar DJ/producer Tiesto will be taking up his 2011 Vegas residency, but that ad in our magazine this week sure got some attention. We’ve been bugging just about every Tiësto-related PR person we know around the world to get you the details. So far, over analyzing the intonation in their voices has yielded only a few hints.
Here’s what we know: The teaser advertisement announcing Tiësto’s 2011 Vegas residency looked an awful lot like other Hard Rock Hotel and Casino promo designs, so that’s guess number one. Fans are also thinking that perhaps Haze or another Light Group venue might be his new home, since he’s spun at many parties for them in the past. And, there’s hope from clubbers Tijs might make Rain the residency location, thanks to the way N9NE Group has embraced the dance music community on a massive scale. There's also a few suppositions that the new club at the Cosmopolitan opening around New Year's might be up to something. Then again, Angel Management Group already runs Godskitchen at HRH’s Vanity and their events are a fave among electronic music fans, so perhaps they have something to do with bringing Tiësto to Vegas.
Our guess: That AMG and HRH might be in cahoots, especially after some super-sleuthing from Weekly reader Aj Gavilanes discovered the tiestovegas.com website “Has a binary trail that appears to lead back to AMG.” (We’re not sure what that means exactly, but we’ll take her word for it.) However, AMG already manages Tiësto’s website and ticketing even when he’s playing somewhere else, so maybe that means nothing at all. SOMEONE TELLS US ALREADY!!!
Arguably one the coolest joints in town, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino houses some of Vegas' best entertainment, restaurants and nightlife.
At Hard Rock, it's all about the music. From the light fixtures made out of drum cymbals and guitar shaped door handles to stage costumes and tools of the trade of legendary musicians displayed on the walls, the hotel screams rock and roll. The Hard Rock's Joint has hosted some the biggest names in music — from The Who to Bob Dylan to hometown heroes, The Killers.Aside from the music venues, the pool at the Hard Rock is one of its biggest attractions. Spread out over 4.7 acres, the pool area features swim-up blackjack, a bar and grill, private cabanas, a bevy of secluded nooks, a waterfall and an extensive live music venue with a dance floor. During the summer, the pool transforms into the Rehab club on Sunday afternoons.
The resident nightclub Body English fuses European elegance with a rock star bachelor pad and it often a hot spot for visiting celebs and popular DJs. Vintage rock memorabilia lines the walls at Wasted Space, Hard Rock's anti-club.
Restaurants at Hard Rock are just as hip as the rest of the casino. Pink Taco serves up Mexican dishes, as well as a Central American and Caribbean menu. Nobu, one of five worldwide Japanese-specialty restaurants from famed Nobu Matsuhisa, satisfies a different taste.
