Make Way For Manneken Pis! The D's Newest Attraction

Mayor Goodman, Derek, Greg and Oscar Goodman

Brussels’ most famous troublemaker is making his mark on Las Vegas as the city’s newest headliner. Weighing in at 500 pounds with a penchant for public nudity, the new star is ready to expose himself to Downtown Las Vegas and will likely become one of its most sought-after celebrity sightings.

During a unique disrobing ceremony this afternoon, the D Las Vegas CEO Derek Stevens introduced the newest addition to his hotel and casino: Manneken Pis, a large-scale bronze replica of the beloved 17th century statue in Brussels, Belgium. the D has entered into a 100-year contract with Manneken Pis as the official greeter of the property, making him the longest entertainment residency in Las Vegas history.

Dutch for “Little Man Pee,” Manneken Pis is a bronze statue of a young boy cheerfully “relieving” himself into a fountain’s basin. The piece holds a special place in the lives of brothers Derek and Greg Stevens, who are of Belgian descent and visited the statue in Brussels often throughout their childhood and early adulthood. A lifelong fan of the cheeky work-of-art, Stevens always knew he wanted to incorporate Manneken Pis into the D’s playful landscape.

“Manneken Pis Las Vegas is a ‘tip of the cap’ to our parents and our family trips to Belgium,” said Derek Stevens. “We are thrilled to bring his whimsical spirit to the D, which will attract thousands of visitors from around the world to Downtown Las Vegas.”

Starting as a central water source in Belgium, Manneken Pis has played an important role in the history of the country. Created by Hiëroynmus Duquesnoy the Elder and put on display in 1619, Manneken Pis was a survivor of the bombardment of Brussels in 1695 and grew into one of the most widely visited and photographed statues in Belgium. While smiling coyly, Manneken Pis remains the emblem of the rebellious spirit of Brussels. The statue been described as hard working yet fun, loving, affable and slightly irreverent – all qualities embraced by the D.

One the distinguishing traits that sets Manneken Pis apart from other statues is his elaborate wardrobe, consisting of more than 900 suits and costumes to match holidays and other special occasions. This tradition will carry over to Las Vegas, where Manneken Pis will be spotted in a variety outfits throughout the year to match seasons, Downtown Las Vegas events and other city-wide initiatives.

Mayor Carolyn Goodman, who was on-hand for the unveiling ceremony, said “Derek Stevens is truly a friend of Downtown Las Vegas, and bringing Manneken Pis Las Vegas to the D is a testament to his investment in this area. The statue will be a symbol of the entrepreneurship that is taking place in Downtown Las Vegas and at the D.”

Manneken Pis can be spotted right next to the D’s main valet, and is ready to greet his public beginning today. Follow him on Twitter at @MannekenPis_LV.

Travis Barker's "Give the Drummer Some" At Hyde FUN & FANTASTIC

Legendary Blink-182  drummer Travis Barker returned to Hyde Bellagio in Las Vegas to kick off his unprecedented residency dubbed “Give the Drummer Some.”

Before the event Barker tweeted about his performance, posting, “Hyped for Vega$ tomorrow night @HydeBellagio.” Once at the nightclub, Barker greeted and took photos with fans who waited outside of the venue for hours in anticipation of his arrival.

Later in the night, the famed rocker performed a high-powered drum DJ set, showing off his signature moves as he created an electrifying atmosphere for the packed nightclub with his one-of-a-kind set and onstage aura. Barker continued to drop heavy hip-hop beats throughout the night by artists including Skrillex, Lil Wayne and Drake while playing effortlessly along on the drums. At the end of his set, Barker tossed his drumsticks into the audience for a lucky fan as the rest of the club-goers cheered on.

Afterwards, DJ Crooked took over the turn tables, and in a swirl of confetti, champagne and club-goers, the party raged on into the early hours of the morning.

Barker will return to Hyde for the next residency performance Labor Day weekend on Sept. 5, with additional performances through 2016.

Milestone Celebration Coming Up For FAVE Haunted Attraction Fright Dome!

Hailed as one of the nation’s scariest haunted attractions for 2014 by Travel Channel and having been featured worldwide for more than a decade in the top five; Fright Dome at Circus Circus is celebrating its 13th Anniversary milestone with its most extreme Halloween season yet.  Beginning Friday, Oct. 2 Fright Dome will take over all 5-acres inside of The Adventuredome theme park at Circus Circus with a promise from owner Jason Egan that fans will experience the most interactive, terrifying and twisted experience in the event’s 13 year history.

“I have launched Halloween events all over the world and still the most important thing to me is that our fans experience sheer terror from start to finish,” said Jason Egan, owner and creator of Fright Dome. “When I came to Las Vegas the only thing here was tiny trailer-based haunted houses so I saw an opportunity to create something huge. After 13 successful years, I am so thrilled to be launching all of my team’s new insanely creative and disturbing ideas to celebrate this season. When it came to planning our 13th anniversary I didn’t want it to feel like walking through a museum, I wanted to create something extremely twisted and interactive that makes everyone feel as though they are a part of the madness.”

This historic season for the indoor haunted attraction marks the creation of Egan’s most intense, disturbing and visceral labyrinth yet. The new creation, “Insanitarium,” is so extreme that guests will be required to check in at a nurse’s station and sign voluntary commitment papers before entering. “Insanitarium” is an all-encompassing interactive experience which locks guests into the warped lair of a deranged surgeon turned meticulous killer with the only option out being to rely on their own instincts and battle through the twists and turns inside. From the freezing temperatures of body lockers to the hellfire heat of a crematorium which guests are trapped in, “Insanitarium” is a testing journey of extreme sight, sounds and smells. Those who dare enter will find themselves closely acquainted with the rotting corpses of those who came before yet failed to survive.

One of the most unique obstacles in guest’s fight against time inside of the new “Insanitarium” is the authentic morgue challenging participants to pass through its halls unscathed once they are locked in. Egan’s crew, who excel in finding creepy yet historic oddities, disassembled and transported morgue doors, wheel chairs, lighting fixtures, sinks and more from one of the most historically paranormal haunted locations in the nation; Norwich State Hospital in Connecticut. Prior to closing in 1996, Norwich was an insane asylum and hospital for the incurable spanning close to a 100 year history of freakish encounters, which Egan hopes to transport into his event.

To further celebrate its 13th Anniversary, Fright Dome has teamed up with SimEx-Iwerks Entertainment, in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, to be the very first haunted attraction in the world to feature a 4-D show with the iconic brand Friday the 13th™ 4-D: A Deadly 4-D Experience. Horror fans will experience another dimension of terror as Jason Vorhees™, the world's most recognizable horror icon, slashes his way through thirteen kills in thirteen minutes. Jason attacks anyone who enters the grounds of Camp Crystal Lake with every twist and turn.  Heightened by hair-raising 3-D and startling special effects; this creepy 4-D experience delivers heart-stopping action. Guests will experience a sensory overload of fear as they come face-to-face with the machete-wielding killer.

The Adventuredome’s state-of-the-art, 4-D Special FX Theatre is a fully immersive experience with an array of in-theater special effects to complement the on-screen show.  Seat vibrations, water sprays and other alarming horrors are designed to let guests feel like part of the grim action.

In addition to the six haunted houses, chilling scare zones and Friday the 13th™ 4-D, newly expanded area, appropriately named “FreakShow” will offer additional scare areas, stages hosting sideshow acts, unique performers and more demented entertainment than ever before alongside carnival games touting a range of unsettling prizes. Fright Dome guests can experience seven thrill rides under one roof, including two roller coasters. Coaster lovers can dive into the darkness on The Adventuredome’s newest ride, El Loco, an adrenaline-pumping adventure complete with G drops, gravity-defying turns and over-the-edge twists. The theme park’s second roller coaster, Canyon Blaster, takes them through a double loop, double corkscrew shrouded by shadows and fog.

Once again teaming up with famed Hollywood FX guru Gary J. Tunnicliffe, Egan’s team will create the most intense props, masks and sets that fans have ever experienced at Fright Dome. Tunnicliffe is highly esteemed in the horror industry for his ability to shock and torment with lifelike recreations. Over the years he has been responsible for the makeup, props and special effects for more than sixty feature films on the big screen including franchises such as HELLRAISER, HALLOWEEN, CANDYMAN, EXORCIST, BLADE, SCREAM and many more.

Fright Dome is open from 7 p.m. to midnight Oct. 2-31 on select nights. General admission tickets start at $35.95 with fast pass tickets available for an additional $20 allowing express line entry for all six haunted houses.

Rita Oro

Over the weekend, wall-to-wall crowds at Drai’s Beachclub • Nightclub atop The Cromwell in Las Vegas welcomed internationally celebrated musicians Miguel and Rita Ora to the stage on back-to-back nights, both making their Drai's LIVE debut. Continuing its reign as the only nightclub in Las Vegas offering full-length concerts from chart-topping artists on such a frequent basis, Drai's once again proved why it's the top party destination on the Strip for nightlife and live music.

Friday August 28
On Friday, fans were treated to a night in Miguel's world as made his Drai's LIVE debut in the midst of his successful WILDHEART North American tour. Performing some of his biggest hits and fan favorites, Miguel rocked the opulent 65,000 square foot venue for an hour with songs like "Quickie," "Drugs" and the lead single from his newly released WILDHEART album, "Coffee." He paused between tracks to speak with the audience, clearly taking in his appreciation for their support. All while overlooking the famed Las Vegas Strip from the rooftop stage, Miguel's passion and musicianship shined through the entire concert. Before bowing out, he took to the mic one last time for his encore - the beloved and critically acclaimed "Adorn."

Saturday August 30
The audience roared as the lights dimmed just before the concert began. Out of nowhere, two masterful break dancers started showcasing their skills back and forth as Rita Ora's band and backup singers built anticipation. And just like that, the British-born singer stepped on stage for an hour of pure entertainment that included an incredible light show, pole dancers, a contortionist and more. Rita sang familiar tracks like "I Will Never Let You Down" and "Black Widow" while also belting out a solo-version of her latest single "Body On Me," originally a duet with Drai's LIVE resident artist Chris Brown.
Spotted in the audience for Rita's concert were Casper Smart and Prince Royce. The two friends were seen partying together at a VIP table next to the stage.

Drai's LIVE is a revolutionary new entertainment experience unlike anything else in Las Vegas. Fusing the worlds of nightlife and live concerts, Drai's LIVE brings arena-level performers to its up close and vibrant atmosphere, providing fans with a rare opportunity to see their favorite musicians in a whole new way.
