Halloween is barely behind us, Thanksgiving has yet to happen, and the holidays are still a ways off but Vegas has its eyes set on New Year's Eve.
Pure Management Group earlier today announced their line-up for what is always the biggest party night of the year.
On the hip-hop heavy docket: the Black Eyed Peas, 50 Cent and Shwayze.
PMG’s announcement made them the first out of the gate to announce their New Year's Eve plans, though details of Tao/Lavo, Privé and the N9NE Group’s venues at the Palms are expected soon.
According to today’s release, NYE 2010 will be a good, good night at LAX thanks to the infusion of all four members of the Black Eyed Peas.
While Will.i.am, Apl.de.ap, Taboo and Fergie will ring in the 2010 at the Luxor, the hip-hop-funk-pop super group has not promised to perform. That said, musicians often decide to give impromptu (and oftentimes karaoke-style) mini-sets during hosting gigs, so BEP fans might want to cross their fingers and hope for a live set – crazier things have happened.
One act who will perform on New Years Eve is 50 Cent, will do his thing at Pure. The rapper will give a mini-set as part of his hosting duties, while DJ Marshall Barnes will set the soundtrack for the rest of the night.
In addition to 50 Cent’s appearance and it being New Years Eve, the night will be somewhat of an anniversary celebration, too: Pure will be celebrating five years of awesomeness – or something like that – at Caesars Palace on Dec. 31.
Shwayze rounds out PMG’s NYE line-up and will bring his hip-hop stylings to Treasure Island with an appearance at Christian Audigier nightclub.
And, just to clarify: By stylings, we mean fashion sense; he isn’t slated to perform. (But, again, just because an artist isn’t scheduled to perform doesn’t mean they won’t perform.)
Passes to party with the Peas or 50 are both priced from $100, while tickets to see Shwayze start at $50.
Tickets for all three parties are available exclusively through Vegas.com and are on sale now.
