There’s never a dull day here, but some days are, well, more interesting than others.
Our company was literally spread out across the country Tuesday, helping make news coast-to-coast and beyond.
Starting here in Las Vegas, the first hotel of CityCenter, Vdara, opened with a press conference attended by more than 100 members of the media. And, even before opening its doors, the spectacular city-within-a-city has generated more than 300 million domestic media impressions over the last three months alone. Check out the piece from NBC Nightly News here. This comes on the heels of some amazing coverage for CityCenter, including USA Today and the Los Angeles Times. Next up for CityCenter, MGM Mirage’s incredible $8.5 billion resort, is the opening of Crystals (including the amazing new, two-story Tiffany & Co.) on Thursday, Mandarin Oriental on Friday and ARIA on Dec. 16. Trust us, you have to see CityCenter to believe it.
While that was happening, we were also in New York helping AEG and Paris Las Vegas announce Barry Manilow’s new show coming to Paris in March. Barry will take over the gorgeous theater at Paris with a show built around love songs. ”I’m actually going to focus on the fact that we are in the most romantic world called Paris,” Barry told the Associated Press. ”Since I sing such romantic songs, I thought that would be a really good place to do something like this.” You can see him on the Today Show here and Access Hollywood here.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch… and we mean Wayne Newton’s ranch, CBS Sunday Morning was in town for two days of taping with Mr. Las Vegas himself. It’s going to be the definitive Wayne Newton profile, and it airs later this fall. You can learn more about his new show, “Once Before I Go,” at www.tropicanalv.com.
And as if that wasn’t enough for one day, we also spent the evening at Caesars Palace celebrating Cher’s 100th performance on The Colosseum stage.
Just another day at Kirvin Doak…
