*Stevie Wonder has scheduled a huge New Year’s Eve gig in Sin City – and you won’t even need a ticket to get the experience.
In addition to entertaining a ticket-paying ballroom crowd at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, thousands of revelers on the Las Vegas Strip will able to watch the concert via video, reports the AP.
A limited number of tickets start at $250 and include an open bar. Meanwhile, the Strip will shut down to vehicle traffic and fill up with New Year’s Eve partiers who can watch it on a huge video screen.
Casino officials said the 25-time Grammy winner known for top hits including “Superstition” and “You are the Sunshine of My Life” will be its top performer one year after an exclusive grand opening bash that featured Jay-Z and Coldplay.
Lisa Marchese, the Cosmopolitan’s chief marketing officer, said Wonder has proven over several decades of performing he can appeal to audiences young and old.
“He’s gotten cool again in a whole different way with a young group of people who didn’t grow up with his music,” Marchese said. “He’s legendary, he’s an impresario, he’s contemporary but old school in this really unexpected way.”
Marchese said other acts and surprises would likely be added to the show, and other acts will perform throughout the property.
