LIGHT Nightclub At Mandalay Bay Resort And Casino In Las Vegas Announces 2015 Talent Roster


Light at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, the state-of-the-art nightclub turned on by the creative minds behind Cirque du Soleil and The Light Group, announced their talent roster for the coming year which features some of the most in-demand producers and DJs in electronic, dance and hip-hop globally. Ranging from the iconic to the emerging, clublife connoisseurs can expect a wide variety of music for their Las Vegas experience at Light. The full 2015 line-up is listed below unveiling this year's talent roster.


Returning to Light in the New Year is Alesso. A club resident since its conception, Alesso is a rising star who in 2015 will be a major pinnacle in the dance music space. His track "Heroes (we could be)" with Tove Lo raced up the charts in late 2014 and was just a taste of what to expect as he will release his debut studio album on Def Jam this year. Also returning to Light is DJ and music legend Carl Cox, whose pioneering ways have not only paved the way for dance music to be where it is today, but also endeared him to generations of electronic music fans worldwide. In addition, there is Axwell along with Ingrosso, both who together are releasing an album on Def Jam in 2015; Baauer, who will continue to host his massively popular Studio B monthly residency; GTA who have been blowing up the festival circuit with their Miami bass productions; also returning are dance music favorites, A-Trak, Bassjackers, Clockwork, Norman Doray and Grammy nominees Sultan + Shepard.

New at Light, as the club ventures into its third year as one of the most sought after destinations on the Vegas strip, is U.K. talent Disclosure. Known more as a live act, their appearances will be a rare DJ set. Having previously taken place in New York City, San Francisco and Chicago, Light will serve as the Las Vegas home for Disclosure's Wild Life specially-curated shows. Called a "joyous and masterful" show by ConsequenceofSound.net, it's an event with friends and artists they like. Also onboard is EDM pioneer FatBoy Slim; American producer and Grammy nominee Morgan Page; hip-hop megastar adventurers Macklemore & Ryan Lewis; and will.i.am, known for his incredible tracks with the Black Eyed Peas and accomplished producer in his own right. There is also DJ Mustard who is making major moves in hip-hop production circles having already created major hits for the likes of Wiz Khalifa, Trey Songz, Kid Ink and 2 Chainz just to name a few.

Light has been experimenting since its opening with new artistic content on a monthly basis. In 2015, Light is bringing a fresh look to the club with its new Artistic Director Maximiliano Torandell. The Argentinean producer and performer will soon unveil new moments and performances for a sexy and avant-garde Light2015 show. What makes a Cirque performance at Light  different than any of the other Vegas shows?  "Light is a nightclub, not a stage show and therefore the requirements for the performances are different," says Torandell.  "We want the performers to be capable of seducing and captivating our audience without separating them from the club experience. We don't want people sitting down and watching a show, we want a flawless integration of the performance and the party." Watch for more on LIGHT's new artistic direction.

The complete talent roster for Light Nightclub in 2015 is here:

Alesso
A-Trak
Axwell
Baauer
Bassjackers

Comedian Rob Delaney Announces 2015 Meat Tour


Rob Delaney, author, comedian, and co-star of the new British sitcom Catastrophe, announced the Meat tour.  The tour will hit 11 cities across the U.S. with tickets on sale now. Additional information and links to purchase tickets are available at www.robdelaney.com.

"I am going to tour very hard all over America and I won't stop until I'm done/hungry. Got it?" – Rob Delaney

Delaney is a writer/stand up originally from Boston, graduating from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. Much of Delaney's success can be attributed to his massive following on Twitter of over 1,000,000 followers.

In 2013, his first novel and bestselling memoir Rob Delaney: Mother. Wife. Sister. Human. Warrior. Falcon. Yardstick. Turban. Cabbage. was released by Spiegel & Grau in the U.S. and by Little Brown in the UK.

In 2012, he was named one of Variety's "Top 10 Comics to Watch" and won the award for "Funniest Person on Twitter" at the Comedy Central Comedy Awards, beating out such luminaries as Steve Martin and Stephen Colbert. He has also been listed as one of "The Funniest People on Twitter" on such sites as Rolling Stone, Huffington Post, Vice, Paste, Comedy Central and Funny or Die.

Delaney's reach spreads beyond the U.S. market; in the UK, he sold out the Soho Theatre in seven minutes via one tweet, making him the fastest selling U.S. performer in the venue's history. His first TV series Catastrophe, which he co-wrote and co-stars in with Sharon Hogan, will premiere on Channel 4 (UK) in January 2015. His television credits include Comedy Central's Key & Peele, E!'s Chelsea Lately, Burning Love and TBS' Cougar Town.

His debut one-hour special, Rob Delaney Live at the Bowery Ballroom, is available on Netflix and from Comedy Central Records.

Rush to Visit 34 Cities Throughout North America in 2015


Celebrating 40 years, Rush and Live Nation confirmed that the RUSH: R40 LIVE TOUR will visit 34 cities throughout North America this summer beginning May 8 in Tulsa, Okla. and finishing Aug. 1 in Los Angeles, CA. These concerts will highlight four decades of the band's music. Tickets for the RUSH: R40 LIVE TOUR will go on sale starting Jan. 30 in select markets at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com (complete itinerary follows).

To quote Dave Grohl from their momentous induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, "Rush built their following the right way. No hype, no bullshit, they did it from the ground up. Their legacy is incredible and their influence undeniable."

After 40 years together and 20 gold and platinum studio albums, Rush is ready to celebrate with the most loyal fans in the world by embarking on their 21st tour, one that will most likely be their last major tour of this magnitude. Celebrate four decades of music with three incredible musicians—all in one night.

Rush's vast catalogue includes such classics as 1974's self-titled debut, 1976's 2112, 1981's Moving Pictures, 1996's Test For Echo and 2002's Vapor Trails. Rush released their 20th studio album Clockwork Angels in 2012, via Anthem/Roadrunner Records. The critically acclaimed collection marked their first studio recording since 2007's Snakes & Arrows, and debuted at #1 in Canada and #2 on the Billboard 200, matching the highest chart debut of the band's career. Known for their energetic live shows, the most recent Rush release was the R40 collector's boxset, including live footage spanning all four decades of the trio's career, with over two hours of unreleased material and a rare performance of the seven-part version of "2112," packaged in an impressive 52-page hardcover book.

Their longevity has served a pop culture renaissance, with the band's rare television appearance—their first in over 30 years—on Comedy Central's The Colbert Report, tributes on South Park and a memorable cameo in the film I Love You, Man.

A live review from their most recent Clockwork Angels tour boasted: "the power-trio interplay could put guys half their age in the burn ward." The Globe & Mail declared Rush as "one of the few bands anywhere that just keeps getting better." A career-chronicling Rolling Stone feature summed up the renowned rock trio's continuing artistic vitality by observing, "It's true that Rush doesn't mean today what it did in '76 or even '96. It may mean more."

Rush has been recognized with eight Juno Awards and seven Grammy nominations, including one for the acclaimed documentary Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage that also won the Audience Award at the Tribeca Film Festival. The band members were inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 1994, made Officers of the Order of Canada in 1996 and inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2010. They have received a star on both Canada's Walk of Fame (1999) and the Hollywood Walk of Fame (2010). In 2012, Rush were bestowed with the highest artistic honor in Canada when receiving the Governor General's Performing Arts Award. To the elation of their fans, Rush were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013.

Tickets for the RUSH: R40 LIVE TOUR will go on sale starting Jan. 30 in select markets at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com. Citi® card members will have access to pre-sale tickets through Citi's Private Pass® Program beginning Jan. 27 in select markets. For complete presale details, visit www.citiprivatepass.com.

Exclusive Rush ticket packages are available; please visit http://vipnation.com for package details.
