Stones say ‘hello,’ Stefani says ‘goodbye’ and Canelo says whatever he wants
There were more celeb sightings in Las Vegas than there were rounds at the Canelo Alvarez fight on Saturday night. Ok, the fight was a big draw for the star power, but to be fair it wasn’t the only thing going down. This is Vegas after all.
Since we are on the subject, let’s start with the Canelo fight. First, in case you didn’t know Canelo Alvarez is now the undisputed champion, period. This after Alvarez took the fight against Caleb Plant 11 rounds before ending it in a TKO victory and a guaranteed $40 million dollar payday. Among those in the sold out crowd at the MGM Grand Garden Arena were actor Henry Golding who lent his support to the newly crowned King.
After his win Alvarez headed up to Resorts World and had dinner at Fuhu before taking part in the official after party at Zouk Nightclub. Alvarez did a little diddy for his wife, reportedly taking the mic and serenading his wife Fernanda with a song.
Earlier in the day, Jake ‘The Problem Child’ and Tommy ‘TNT’ Fury did a press conference at RedTail (also at Resorts World) with the details of their upcoming fight. The eight round cruiserweight bout will take place on December 18.
If two celeb sightings at Resort World are great, then three is outstanding. And that’s just what they had. Steve Aoki took it upon himself to show Henry Golding the newly opened Eight cigar lounge and bar. Golding then browsed the open food court inside the Hilton property and commented in his insta stories, “I’m in heaven right now.” Samesis, Henry, Samesies.
Now onto the biggest concert of the weekend, The Rolling Stones. Don’t lie, everyone’s timeline was filled with those who were in attendance. Mick and the fellas rocked Allegiant Stadium. It was even rumored that they almost blew the roof off the joint. Evidently, the pyro proved to be more than expected. Though, for the record, we are not complaining.
This was the first show in five years for the iconic rock and roll band. Before one note ever was played, Stones frontman Mick Jagger played tourist in Las Vegas. Jagger hit up the Neon Museum, Fremont Street and our natural landscape in the desert. Mick posted pics all around town on his social media with the caption “Seeing the sights of Las Vegas… see you at the show tomorrow!”
It’s Goodbye for Gwen
Gwen Stefani closed out her Las Vegas residency over the weekend. Husband Blake Shelton joined her on stage for some singing before she made her sweet escape.
Fellow “The Voice” judge Ariana Grande showed up and gave her support to Stefani. Grande posting pics to her social with the caption, “brilliant @gwenstefani 💘 💘 💘 congratulations on completing this incredible run love you so much.”
Costner Rocks Sunset
Actor Kevin Costner and his Modern West band took to the stage at Sunset Station on Saturday night. The Tales of Yellowstone Tour coincided with the premiere of the season four television show happening on the next night. After the show the Dancing With Wolves actor met up with the most iconic entertainer in the city, Mr. Las Vegas himself, Wayne Newton.
