3-time Grammy winner Lizzo set to ring in 2022 in Las Vegas
Virgin Hotels may be a virgin brand in Las Vegas, but leadership knows that if there’s one night a year to go big, it’s New Year’s Eve.
The former Hard Rock has tapped Lizzo to ring in 2022 from The Theater at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. Tickets to the one-night-only affair go on sale October 22 for $99.50 and can be purchased via AXS. An American Express presale runs October 19-21.
This won’t be the first time Lizzo has lit up Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve. The artist played The Cosmopolitan’s Chelsea theater on New Year’s Eve 2019, the same year her third studio album, “Cuz I Love You,” took over the world. Fans are still waiting for the follow-up, though Lizzo teamed with one-time Vegas headliner Cardi B this year for the chart-topper “Rumors.”
Bruno Mars is Back for New Year’s Eve and More
Lizzo joins a lineup of Las Vegas New Year’s Eve performers that includes the recently announced Bruno Mars. The 36-year-old, 11-time Grammy winner is returning for his fifth New Year’s Eve performance, this time at a familiar venue with an unfamiliar name.
Mars will headline December 30 and 31 at Dolby Live at Park MGM (formerly Park Theater). His New Year’s performances are part of a four-concert swing through the city in December. He’s also tapped to play Dolby Live on December 17 and 18.
Previously, Mars played New Year’s Eve concerts at T-Mobile Arena, Park Theater, and The Chelsea.
Tickets to Mars’ Dolby Live performances start at $99.50 and can be purchased via Ticketmaster beginning October 22 at 10 a.m.. An M Life Rewards presale will be held on October 21.
