Katy Perry, Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryon, Zedd, Celine Dion and Tiesto perform at the new location that dwarfs the entertainment list at the brand new resort.
CHELSEA BRIGGS: Just a month after Billboard reported that Katy Perry was planning her first Las Vegas residency at the Theater at Resorts World, she’s playing a new promo for the future Sin City Resort Casino, and she’s not alone. Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, Celine Dion, Zedd and Tiesto also star in the nearly two-minute spot.
Billboard reported last week that Tiesto signed a three-year deal with nightclub Resorts World Zouk and day club AYU, and Zedd has also been announced for the nightlife venues. But there’s still no official word from the resort about Perry, Underwood, Bryan or Dion residences in the 5,000-seat theater. According to the press release accompanying the promo, “The commercial offers a glimpse into the amazing entertainment that is emerging from the unprecedented partnerships between Resorts World Las Vegas, Concerts West / AEG Presents and the Zouk Group.”
Dion shared a clip of the promo on her Instagram Tuesday, writing, “A taste of a fabulous reveal.” Dion is no stranger to Vegas. It has the two top-selling, best-selling Sin City residences of all time. But both were performed at Caesars Palace, so this was their first time in a new home on the Strip.
Underwood, who would be brand new to the world of Vegas residences, as did her compatriot Bryan, also shared a teaser Tuesday titled “I’m All Fluttering With Something Exciting”. Vegas veterinarian Zedd wrote, “Looking forward to showing you something cool,” while Tiesto “brought out something special. Can you imagine what it is?” Slowly but surely, Vegas seems to be coming back to life. For more information on this story, visit Billboard.com.
