Excess. Debauchery. Energy. These are terms that apply to Aerosmith just as much as Las Vegas, and on Wednesday the legendary Boston rock band announced plans for an upcoming residency in Sin City.
Beginning on April 6, 2019, Aerosmith will take the stage at the brand new Park Theater at the new ParkMGM hotel/casino (formerly the Monte Carlo) for (at least) 18 headlining performances, under the billing Deuces Are Wild — named after their 1994 single of the same name and also Vegas’ affinity for card games (we assume). The dates:
April 2019: 6, 8, 11, 13, 16, 18, 21, 23, 26
June 2019: 19, 22, 24, 27, 29
July 2019: 2, 4, 7, 9
The Park Theater is a new live music venue in the heart of Las Vegas that boasts state-of-the-art video screens and excellent vantage points from nearly every seat in the intimate theater. From Live Nation’s press release:
Park Theater is the entertainment centerpiece of Park MGM, a partnership between MGM Resorts International and New York-based Sydell Group which features two distinct hotel experiences including a Las Vegas version of Sydell’s widely acclaimed NoMad Hotel. The 5,200-seat Park Theater, with its cutting-edge audio and visual technology, provides artists of diverse talents with a dynamic space to create one-of-a-kind productions where every seat allows guests to feel up close and personal. From comedy shows and live concerts, to sporting events and award shows, the theater is specially designed to transform seamlessly for any occasion.
