Trends, fashion, celebrities, events, music, and all things only Vegas
Saturday night's all right for fighting, as Elton John will sing when his new show opens Sept. 28 -- and this Saturday's Floyd Mayweather-Victor Ortiz bout provides more than enough reason to visit Las Vegas. Two of boxing's biggest names are also drawing some of the biggest names in entertainment to town for another fabulous weekend of music, celebrity parties and more.
The weekend starts long before the championship fight, however. The weather is still perfect for a day by the pool, so kick things off with Eric Cubeechee spinning at Mandalay Bay's Moorea Beach Club and Hyper Crush at Palms Pool & Bungalows for Ditch Fridays.
Friday night, spend an evening with "The Girl Next Door" as Bridget Marquardt holds her birthday party at Gallery Nightclub inside Planet Hollywood. Or party with the Swedish Bikini Team at The Bank inside Bellagio. Miss Universe 2010 Ximena Navarrete hosts a party at Pure inside Caesars Palace, Wolfgang Gartner spins at Surrender at Encore Las Vegas, you can catch DAINJAZONE, Dave Fogg and DJ Exodus at Rain inside the Palms, Dave Aude and Jonas Tempel provide the music at Marquee at the Cosmopolitan, Arno Cost spins at Haze inside ARIA and Redman hosts at LAX at Luxor. TAO Nightclub at the Venetian is the site for LMFAO's concert & afterparty. The DJ duo are celebrity judges in the Vegas Spin-Off, and will help select the grand prize winner when the seven finalists perform live at Marquee on Sept. 26.
Diddy hosts his fight afterparty at Rain, and there are plenty of top DJs performing, too, including Kaskade at Marquee, Avicii at XS Nightclub inside Encore at Wynn Las Vegas and A-Trak at Surrender. Lloyd performs live at Haze and Rupert Grint of Harry Potter fame celebrates his birthday at Chateau Nightclub and Gardens at Paris Las Vegas.
Sunday, kick back at Marquee dayclub with Frank Rempe and Thomas Gold spins at Encore Beach Club. Close out the weekend with Kevin Brown at the Palms' Ghostbar, Norman Doray at XS Nightclub and Fabolous at Moon, also at the Palms.
Head to Vegas for a weekend that really packs a punch!
Las Vegas has always been a haven for spotting celebrities, with the rich and famous popping in and out of town for various events and just to have a good time.
But many celebrities also call Vegas home. Virtually every sport has some star athlete that resides in Las Vegas. Baseball has Greg Maddux. Tennis has Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf. Boxing has Floyd "Money" Mayweather, and for MMA, UFC president Dana White calls Las Vegas home. NASCAR stars Kurt and Kyle Busch live in Las Vegas, too, as does BMX rider T.J. Lavin.
Vegas is also home to legendary performers, including Brandon Flowers, Penn & Teller, Gladys Knight, Marie Osmond and of course, longtime Vegas icon Wayne Newton, whose home, "Shenandoah," will be open for tours soon.
